Obama’s Birthright


Arizona's secretary of state said Friday he had asked officials in Hawaii to verify that Barack Obama was born in their state in order for the president's name to appear on the November ballot in Arizona.
Ken Bennett, who is Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign co-chairman in Arizona, said he made the request on behalf of a constituent.
Earlier this year, hardline Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio announced that an investigation by his office had found that Obama's birth certificate was a forgery.

Karl Denninger has done an impressive job covering this issue, so I will direct readers to his site and invite them to do search on “Obama birth certificate” to see for themselves whether Obama has actually proven that he is, in fact, a citizen of the US.  I posit that Obama has not proven that he is eligible for office, but the absence of proof is not proof of absence.  However, since he has not proven that he is eligible for office, and since there are genuine concerns over whether he is, the question that must be asked is:  why is he in office?
The answer, of course, is that the constitution is dead, and its remaining tatters now effectively serve as toilet paper for executive branch. Assuming there are even tatters left at this point.

    Obama's lawyers admit in NJ court the b/c was bogus. Also not covered by MSM. What a surprise.

  2. @Anon.- thanks for pointing this out. The case law behind the issue of being a natural born citizen is pretty thin, and has generally supported the idea that one need not be born in the US to be considered a natural born citizen (I think Roosevelt and Goldwater were tow of the reasons for this ruling). However, the question of having parents of mixed-citizenship status gums things up considerably.
