Section 1, Article 2 of the United States Constitution specifically states: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President...."
Barack Obama's father was a subject of the British crown and, at the time of Obama's birth, his mother was too young, to bestow her status as a natural born citizen unto her son. In order for Barack Obama to even make a credible claim that he might be eligible under Section 1, Article 2 of the United States Constitution to serve as President of the United States, he must be able to show that he was born in the United States.
Instead of supplying his actual birth certificate, to prove his eligibility, Team Obama, supplied an alternate document... a "Certification of Live Birth." But the "Certification of Live Birth" is NOT an actual birth certificate. In fact, until very recently... only AFTER this controversy came to a head... the state of Hawaii did not even accept a "Certification of Live Birth" as singular proof that an individual was a Hawaiian citizen because Hawaii issued that document to individuals NOT actually born in Hawaii.
Bob Unruh with WorldNetDaily.com put it this way: "The 'certification of live birth' posted online and widely touted as 'Obama's birth certificate' does not in any way prove he was born in Hawaii, since the same 'short-form' document is easily obtainable for children not born in Hawaii. The true 'long-form' birth certificate – which includes information such as the name of the birth hospital and attending physician – is the only document that can prove Obama was born in Hawaii, but to date he has not permitted its release for public or press scrutiny."
With the above understanding in mind, when asked to release his actual birth certificate to clarify matters, Team Obama immediately went into OBSTRUCTION MODE. And, in fact, Team Obama has spent hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to OBSTRUCT requests that Obama supply his actual birth certificate.
Unruh again: "Obama's actual response to those who question his eligibility to be president under the Constitution's requirement that the U.S. president be a 'natural born citizen' has been to dispatch both private and tax-funded attorneys to prevent anyone from gaining access to his documentation."
One can only ask why? ... Why is Barack Obama actively REFUSING to produce his actual birth certificate? ... What is Barack Obama trying to hide? ... Why spend hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to obstruct requests to produce a document that Obama could obtain, upon request, for about 10-20 dollars?
Lt. Col. Lakin is asking that question... but instead of the courtesy of an answer... this officer, with 18 years of honorable military service, is being threatened with court-martial.
Something is rotten, but the stench isn't coming from the Denmark... it's coming from the White House.
Obama Has Dug In His Heels. Only You Can Pry Them Loose .
Is the biggest political crime in American history taking place right before our eyes? Is the man in the White House INELIGIBLE, according to the Constitution, to sit in the Oval Office... is he a FRAUD... a USURPER?
Or, is Barack Obama's ego so huge that he is only spending hundreds-of-thousands of dollars and allowing a proud military officer to face possible court-martial because he feels that he's simply too good... too high and mighty... to perform a simple task and verify to the American people that his presidency IS LEGITIMATE.
Barack Hussein Obama could put the issue to rest right now by simply releasing his actual birth certificate.
But he refuses to do just that. Incidentally, he has also refused to produce other records that could shed some light on the matter, including many of his school records... at multiple institutions.
Make no mistake, the issue regarding Barack Obama's eligibility is NOT going away because Obama REFUSES to make it go away.
He's dug in his heels. He has teams of lawyers fighting efforts to get him to release his actual birth certificate, while his underlings look down their noses at the American people and call these legitimate requests “garbage.”
And the one pivotal question that those who attempt to dismiss the controversy cannot answer is: If Barack Hussein Obama has nothing to hide, what’s the problem? The more he resists, the more you have to wonder.
Meanwhile the liberal press is trying to drag this story into a dark alley and bludgeon it to death. It’s time for you and me to weigh in and force the issue.
