More Back and Forth on Obama's Citizenship Issue

Regarding the previously posted Obama video concerning his citizenship and therefore Obama’s eligibility to be the President of the United States .

We have been having a good back and forth with "smrstrauss", who is articulate and has written some very good comments. In response to smrstrauss’ comments (which are in Italics) I make these responses:

I posted that video because out of Obama’s mouth comes the admission that he was born in Kenya . Whereas previously, Obama and his supporters, have stated repeatedly that he was born in Hawaii , where copies of a short form live birth certificate stating such have been released. If Obama wants to pull the wool over the American people’s eyes, then get your story straight first.

(Also,) do you think that the US Congress would have confirmed Obama's election UNANIMOUSLY if one of them thought that the citizenship of Obama's father affected his Natural Born Citizen status? What a minute,….do you mean the same Congress that has driven us to the brink of national bankruptcy? The same congress that grants benefits too themselves that the American people will not receive? The same Congress that passes laws in order to find out what is in the law?

The applicable part of the Constitution regarding eligibility to hold the office of the Presidency is Article II, The Executive Branch, Section 1 - The President where it states:
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.

The 14th Amendment applies to citizenship and states in paragraph 1, (that) All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

After the Wong Kim Ark case, there have been numerous federal court rulings that specifically state that the US-born children of foreigners are Natural Born Citizens. I agree with you on this. But despite your referencing a lot of court precedent,....on children born in the United States,....or it’s Territories, by/from U.S. Citizens,….. is just not applicable as Obama states he was born in Kenya and we know that his Father was not an American Citizen.

Obama has already shown the official birth certificate of Hawaii, and the facts on the document–that he was born in Hawaii in 1961—were confirmed twice by the officials of the Department of Health of Hawaii and by the governor of Hawaii (a Republican). Yes it’s true that Obama has previously listed Hawaii as his birthplace, but why did he say, on the video I posted on this site, that he was born in Kenya? Why does Michelle Obama refer to Kenya as Barack’s home?

Now after all this, I think this is an OBE event,…that means Overcome By Events.....closing the barn door after the horses got it what you want, but I think electing a non- U.S. Citizen as President has set a bad precedent. All of those white conservatives were afraid to standup and be counted for fear of being called a racist. I am not calling for Obama’s removal from office, based on the citizenship issue. That will happened soon enough in January 2013 (we'll know on 3 Nov 2012). It will also be apparent in 8 days what the American People think about the direction he and his followers in Congress has taken this Country.

You all can comment on what you want, but this is the last I'm gonna to write about this issue, at least in the near future.
