Where’s the birth certificate?  Locked away like his health records and college transcripts, President Obama’s birth certificate remains as elusive as knowing the winning Power Ball Lottery winning Numbers in advance.  In fact we have a better chance at getting struck by lightening, but the issue of his citizenship will not go away- nor should it.

Last week  House press secretary Robert Gibbs said that he was incredulous.”I am incredulous that the issue just won’t go away. This question, in many ways, continues to astound me. The state of Hawaii provided a copy, with a seal, of the president’s birth… I certainly hope, by the fourth year of our administration, that we’ll have dealt with this burgeoning birth controversy.”  The administration has dealt with it by paying huge legal fees to keep his records private.

Gibbs is astounded?  Hey jackass, it is millions of American’s who are astounded that our Constitution remains in jeopardy with the possibility that we are being led by a foreigner that may be ineligible.  Required by Article II Section 1 of the Constitution states, “No person except a natural-born citizen…shall be eligible to the Office of the President.”

Incredulously, Obama himself could have put an end to the lawsuits that began with Berg vs Obama, but the court proceedings linger on.  Why spend the money to defend your right to keep your sealed, certified birth certificate a secret unless there is something to hide?

Interestingly, there is a bill pending to require that all future  presidential candidates be required to show proof of eligibility before being placed on the ballot. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., filed H.R. 1503, an amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971. Virginia Republican Bob Goodlatte has signed on as a co-sponsor. 

“H.R.1503 Title: To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of President to include with the committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution.
Sponsor: Rep Posey, Bill [FL-15] (introduced 3/12/2009)      Cosponsors (1) Status: Referred to the House Committee on House Administration.  ”

It appears the bill has been stalled with no action taken in more than two months.   http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/thomas.  Funny how our government under Obama can authorize the spending of billions for bailouts and buy General Motors and turn in into Government Motors- negating capitalism and open market principles in the process, but can not seem to pass a little bill that reinforces a candidates eligibility.   No matter who Obama’s grandparents are, I sincerely doubt that Obama would be grandfathered in- requiring him to prove unequivocally that he is qualified. 

Family Security Matters hasn’t gone away either.  In a letter to Rupert Murdoch of Fox News, “Revelation of this massive collapse of the fundamentals of the electoral process (ensuring candidate eligibility) at this point would make some very important people look hopelessly incompetent and inept.” http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.3320/pub_detail.asp   Say nothing of the 53% of voters who elected him.

Andy Martin said, “Secrecy laws were intended to protect the privacy of private citizens, not presidents.”  Martin filed an appeal May 27, 2009  to the court against Linda Lingle, in her official Capacity as Governor filing in Hawaii Courts again asking to see Obama’s birth certificate and citing numerous errors in the proceedings. http://www.pr-inside.com/obama-birth-certificate-brief-filed-in-r1278274.htm. The state said they “have the original document” on file.

Our neighbors to the North at Canada Free Press said, ” Once again, I find myself forced to ask, “Now have we seen enough?”  On several occasions I have asked, what is it going to take for average Americans to wake up and stand up? And once again, I must point out that whatever it is, it hasn’t happened yet! Maybe Government Motors is the last straw. Maybe putting Republican leaning Chrysler dealerships out of business will do the trick. Maybe sicking FBI and Secret Service agents on decent concerned citizens who happen to disagree with Obama’s version of Marxism will get people fired up…Whatever it is, it had better happen soon, because Obamanation is fast turning the beacon of freedom around the world into just another broken banana republic. ” http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/11456

Innocent until proven guilty, eligible until proven not. 

A sign of the times, indeed.
