I’ve not followed the details of this eligibility issue closely, but certain aspects smell a bit fishy. Opponents claim that this is just a waste of taxpayer dollars, but I wonder if money would be an issue if George W Bush’s birthplace had been in question. Taxpayer dollars don't seem to be an issue when it comes to HealthCare, Climate Change, Globalization or other socialistic goals on Mr Obama’s agenda. If money is the issue, why would Mr Obama spend about a million dollars to suppress the release? If Mr Obama’s worshipers are concerned about taxpayer dollars, I’m sure there are many private citizens who would pony up the $20 or so to pay any state of Hawaii fees required for the release. I would think that Mr Obama would want to put this issue behind him so that he could place his full attention to the matter of nationalizing the remainder of the private sectors of the country
In addition, I would think the state of Hawaii would also want the issue resolved, yet in response to the Arizona legislation, a Hawaii conference committee unanimously voted to advance a bill to the House and Senate that would allow the state to ignore additional requests for President Obama's birth certificate.
Most families possess or have access to their certified birth certificate. It is required in obtaining a driver’s license, passport or in many other transactions, even signing up your child for little league baseball. Why is it not required to hold the highest office in our land?
That all said, my overriding question is “why is this Arizona bill even necessary”? Have we come to the point where states must pass bills in order to legalize the Constitution? Article 2 Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Us Constitution reads:
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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.Is this part of the constitution no longer valid? Does the radical left even recognize the constitution anymore other than to support the killing of babies or the banning of Christianity? Article 2 Section 1 closes with the following:
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:It’s time for Mr Obama to take his oath seriously.
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
