It absolutely astounds me that BRAINWASHED MINDLESS IMBECILIC SHEEPLE like you exist.
It totally disgusts me that people like you are even allowed to vote in an Election.
You think a serious issue that could result in a violation of our Constitution is funny, I do not.
Point out just ONE RACIST LIE in any of my posts!
Barack Obama IS NOT PRESIDENT YET, that's why currently he is called the President-Elect.
Where is the PROOF that Obama is an American citizen?
Certainly you are not eluding to the fake COLB that he released to the public that has been deemed by experts to be a fraudulent document, are you?
Why would a letter written to a court of law urging them to uphold our Constitution, and to seek proof of Obama's citizenship by demanding from Obama his Birth Certificate, get me put on a watch list?
Obama had lawyers mount a defense to keep his Birth Certificate from the public who have hired him to be the President of the U.S.
Since he will preside over all Americans, don't you think he should have to convince all Americans, that he is legally eligible to take the Oath of Office and be the President of the U.S.?
Go ahead and check yourself into a sanitarium, because you are STONE COLD CRAZY!
Oh come now, you really should give this up before you wear yourself out, there’s really no way you can win this battle, United States law is on the side of Sen. Obama. His victory is in no way a violation of the constitution, no more so then McCain’s victory would have been since both are citizens under the same law. You keep talking about Obama’s birth certificate, but under US law he has the right to keep that document private and although it is easy to do so, one should not assume resistance to release of personal document as an admission of guilt. America has spoken in choosing Obama; I am sure if McCain had won, there would be a bunch of people trying to contest that too, that’s just the way things are. When people have such a vested interest in these candidates it can be too hard to let go…and by the way, a sanitarium was an institution for the chronically ill, not the mentally ill, that would be an insane asylum.

One of the pillars of Berg's argument is that Obama doesn't have a legally-valid U.S. birth certificate because he was born in Kenya. Though debunking specialists from Snopes.com and Factcheck.org have asserted the validity of a birth certificate released by the Obama campaign and affirmed by the State of Hawaii, Berg remains unconvinced. Factcheck.org , he said, is suspect because it is run by a group called Annenberg of Chicago, where Obama once sat on a board with William Ayers. Snopes.com worked off the same false document, he said.

If Obama is blocked from taking office, there will be riots across the country and Bush will have his excuse to declare a national emergency and remain President while the Constitutional Crisis is resolved, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES!

Is that really what we want??? More of the VILLAGE IDIOT from Texas?

This is the first I have heard on this subject. I do not consider myself a sore loser ( I voted for the other guy, but so what?). I DO know that I am required on a regular basis to provide my birth certificate for reasons of employment, not to mention the DMV requires it. I think Mr Obama should be required to show his. He is no better than you or I, so put up so's everyone can shut up.

Well then legislation should be passed setting a legal precedent for this very unusual case (this certainly has never been an issue before). It seems to me though to be a waste of time as it is irrelevant whether or not he was born in the USA since his mother is a US citizen.

Then there should be no problem producing the documentation. The rules state national origin and age as a requirement. He must satisfy these prerequisites, that's all. If he does this, I will be more than satisfied.

And there is PLENTY of time before he takes office. It only takes minutes to produce a birth certificate.

But he did, if you are not satisfied then perhaps you need to look to yourself.

Dmv requires proof of presence for ALL following 911.
Yes, I expect him to take office with his birth certificate in hand, Fill out his W-4's, like everybody else. Lucky he doesn't need to pass a drug screen like many workers do these days.

i dont know how it works but since he is already a federal employye just moving offices, he probably wouldnt have to fill out new w-4's. govt payroll will take care of it.

I cannot believe people are still obsessing over this issue, especially considering the election has now been over for quite awhile. Any legal precedent for denying Obama as a “natural-born” citizen of the US would also exclude John McCain considering McCain was born in Panama. That said, I believe both to be “natural-born” US citizens, especially considering the criteria provided by the Naturalization Acts of 1790 & 1795. The Naturalization Act of 1790 states that “The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens.”, this assertion is supported under section 301(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. I highly doubt that Obama was not born in Hawaii, but even if he was not, it’s a moot point since he (just like John McCain) was born to a US citizen.
John McCain was born to America Soldier and wife while parents were stationed in another area...my nephew was born in Germany while his father was on a tour there, he is American because he was born while his parents were serving this great nation... Action in life speak louder than words, it's so sad that most of the American citizens of our great country are now wearing blinders to the actions of the past of the man who shall take over this country in January...Do not start with politics, I am registered democrat, but party aside I am first and Always American. So here in my small "neck" of the woods, knowing that the people have spoken and Obama will be our next president, we are stocking up on esstenials and getting ready for the roughest time we have had to face in our lifetime although my parents and grandparents lived through the great depression and I remember the stories... well I fear this country is in for a rude awakening... but as they say the bed has been made and even those who opposed must now lay in it as well... prepare for the worst and hope for the best ... the bottom is in sight... and the light at the end of the tunnel has been put out.

Why is his Thesis Hidden?
Why Obama never took student loans?
Why did Prince Al Waleed paid for Obama's Harvard Education?
Why did Obama go to Pakistan for 2 months while in Columbia Univ.?
Why the secrecy?
And when pressured to produce a birth certificate. He did so, but it turned out to be forged. It was forged using his sister Mays's hawaiian birth certificate.

The only problem is, May Soetoro Ng was not born in Hawaii.. She was born in Jakarta Indonesia. so they both are forgeries.

Obama will soon be the only President-Elect in American history, to leave in disgrace before even being sworn in as the President of the U.S.

Obama is an illegal alien and therefore cannot legally take the Oath of Office to be the POTUS.

I believe that the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately have to rule that because of the Constitutional requirement that the President of the U.S. must be a natural born citizen of the U.S., that any U.S. citizen of legal voting age has the "standing" to challenge any Presidential candidates citizenship, and that if the challenge is found to have any merit at all, then the challenged candidate must tender proof to the court to prove beyond a doubt that they in fact are a legal citizen of the U.S., legally eligible to take the Oath of Office to be the POTUS.

We will soon know what the Supreme Courts take on this anomaly will be.

I am keeping my hopes high even though I feel is is more likely than not going to go the other way.

Either way it goes.. America loses.

If Obama becomes president he will destroy our nation from within, and if the supreme court rules against him the obama zombies will burn our cities.
Everyone should stock up on canned goods and amunition before December 5 or at least before December 10th when the electorial college meets.

Cion, thank you for those helpful links. The fact is, there is plenty of evidence that something is stinky in Hussein Obama's underwear and it is Obama himself.

The Supreme Court will be visiting this issue privately on December 5th. My guess is that he will be given an affirmative action free pass because Obama Supporters aren't known for taking rejection well.
