Senators drag feet on Obama birth issue

  • Follow Letters

There is discontent within the Clayton County Republican Party Committee. It concerns support for our Georgia senators.

The gist of the disagreement revolves around President Obama's eligibility to hold office, and that neither senator has taken any action concerning this violation of the Constitution. The Constitution requires that a U.S. citizen be a "natural born" citizen to hold the office of president. Obama's birth fails to meet this requirement.

On July 7, a motion was put forward by the members of the CCGOP to withdraw support for Sen. Johnny Isakson because of "his failure to vet and to stand up for us concerning the eligibility of Barack Obama." The Constitution clearly defines a "natural born" citizen. Both parents have to be U.S. citizens. Not so in Obama's case. The article on The Post & Email Web site says that the CCGOP voted to endorse Libertarian Chuck Donovan for the U.S. Senate seat over incumbent Isakson.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss also was contacted regarding the eligibility of Obama. The CCGOP member says that he was "thwarted at every attempt" to find out if Obama actually is eligible.

The article charges that Johnny Isakson (and Chambliss) have failed to uphold their constitutional oath of office.

I also have contacted both senators with specific details, and asked that they uphold their oath and conduct the congressional oversight they are tasked with. They continue to ignore us. Both of these senators should be removed from office.

It's a massive assumption of law by the writer to state that his definition of "natural born" is the Constitution's.

(I reluctantly question the writer because any claim made so confidently is undoubtedly backed by clear evidence.)

Kind of like the evidence of where Obama was born, right?

The "birther movement" is my favorite new conspiracy theory. You guys are hilarious. Please, tell me more about how the President isn't a natural born citizen. And how the Earth is 6000 years old. And how we didn't land on the Moon. And how the United States government destroyed the Twin Towers. And how climate change doesn't exist. And how you don't have to pay taxes because God says so.

"Both parents have to be U.S. citizens"

This guy needs a good old fashioned history lesson. The parents can be from the moon as long as the person running is a natural born citizen, which Obama is. Don't you think the media or people running against him would have made danged sure he was a natural born citizen?
Mr. Cipperly I hope you're not a History teacher.

Lets see- Obama was adopted

Lets see- Obama was adopted by Sotoreo, became an Indonesian citizen by that process, listed as indonesian in offical Indonesian (school records) documents. Ok when did he reclaim US citizenship? COLB (Certificate of Live Birth) issued by Hawaii are NOT the same as a birth certificate. Obama's half sister, born in Indonesia, has a COLB same as Obama's. Here is the Hawaii law. www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/.../HRS_0338-0017_0008.HTM

Chasboy- How come all of

Chasboy- How come all of Obama's records are sealed! College, High school, Graduate school, Hawaiian etc. Try to look up Obama's GPA. Try to read Obama's thesis! People who looked up his Occidental college records are being prosecuted now. We have military officers under going court martials because his records are sealed and they claim he is not a legal commander and they can't get his records. One court case, where Obama's lawyers tried to sue the inquiring party had the case, for recovery of damages, thrown out because the sueing party tried to get discovery to demonstrate that Obama would have mitigated damage by presenting required documentation. There are many errors and problems with Obama's life story and time line and the press is ignorant or covers up. Two examples are where are Obama's girl friends? The girl written about in Dreams of my Father is actually about William Ayers girl friend that died in the New York bomb factory in which Ayers took a part ! The time line for his speach about bloody Sunday (the press claims two bloody Sunday marches in Selma LOL)! Even Obama said in a press interview that McCain never talked about my Muslim faith!www.suntimes.com/news/.../obama/1150540,CST-NWS-faith08.article Did the press ever vet that...give me a break!

I never thought much of this

I never thought much of this birth business until I saw Chris Matthews

on msnbc waving a "cetificate of live birth" in front of the camera as

evidence for all of about 8 seconds.

The first thing that occured to me is why not just have it projected into

tv land in real size so people could actually read the thing.

It did not take much checking on my part to find out why.

Obtaining A state obtained " certificate of live birth " does not

require the person actually be born in that state. Period.

The only requirement is that they live in that state for a period of time.

I can only guess that Obama is either embarresed by something

contained on his actual birth certificate, or he just enjoys having the

"birthers" out there talking about it .

Either way the release of his actual birth certificate will be the only thing

that will ever put this issue to bed.

if it wasn't the birth

if it wasn't the birth certificate, it surly would be something else. ' Lies are often much more plausible, more appealing to reason, than reality, since the liar has the great advantage of knowing beforehand what the audience wishes or expects to hear.' Keep on listening to Beck and Limbaugh, great places to get your 'truth' for the day. ps. these types also come from the other side too!

Obama's COLB has no

Obama's COLB has no signatures and no doctor or hospital information. It is questionable whether he is legally POTUS. Citizenship according to the 14th Amendment has two requirements for citizenship:
1) All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and
2) subject to the jurisdiction thereof

Chasboy-rather interesting

Chasboy-rather interesting dismissal since I didn't quote or referance television. Easier to be dismissive than asnswer the question of why are Obama's records sealed? I personnally believe he was born in Hawaii but is hiding much of his past! Here is a link to the article about his missing girl friends. www.americanthinker.com/.../barack_obamas_missing_girlfrie.html If he was a citizen of Indonesia he is inelegible to be president. www.numbersusa.com/content/node/5252 - The press has shown no interest in reviewing any of this.. Oh but we do know all about Palin's past, in PAINFUL detail...LOL

Simple. Show the birth

Simple. Show the birth certificate. Ends all debate, all speculation, all lawsuits, all confusion. The president has more pressing matters than to play games with the American public. If you were questioned, wouldn't you show yours? Why would anyone defend this? Don't you want your president to be an American citizen?

Mr. Cipperly is correct.

Mr. Cipperly is correct. "Both of these senators should be removed from office." But for much better reasons than this.

Even St. Mary has detractors, though her son's birth is well documented. Isn't it ironic that birthers are nearly always Old Testament fans? Perhaps if they knew more of the people whose book they have appropriated, they would aspire to be anti-Semites as well.

You do what you can, but when you're down with everything that's up, Oy! where does the time go?!

right faithson - it "will always be something", so does that mean you just ignore a lack of ethics in leadership, the abuse of power in our government, just because "it will always be something"?? thanks, but my family, my friends and my country mean much more to me than to carry around that kind of passivity

Isn't it interesting how no

Isn't it interesting how no doctor or midwife has stepped forward to say he or she actually delivered Obama. No nurse in the delivery room has stepped forward. That would lead one to believe that he was born outside the U.S.
