Barack, We Want a Peek at Your Birth Certificate

For both the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama, and the Republican candidate, John McCain, has arisen the question of whether the place of their birth might disqualify them from being our next president. Both candidates are reputed to have been born outside the continental United States.

John McCain’s report is in:

A federal judge in California has been asked to determine whether McCain meets the legal test to hold the nation’s highest office. Although McCain has called questions about his eligibility nonsense, his campaign, as it did in his first White House run in 2000, sought a review from legal experts to put the issue to rest.

AP) A pair of lawyers – one Republican, one Democrat – have concluded that John McCain’s 1936 birth outside the continental United States does not disqualify him to be president.

The likely Republican nominee was born on a U.S. naval base in 1936 in the Panama Canal Zone

“Based on the original meaning of the Constitution, the Framers’ intentions, and subsequent legal and historical precedent, Senator McCain’s birth to parents who were U.S. citizens, serving on a U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936, makes him a ‘natural born citizen’ within the meaning of the Constitution,” the review found.

From CBS News March 28, 2008

And today World Net Daily has raised the issue for Barack Obama.

Is Obama’s candidacy constitutional?
Secrecy over birth certificate, demand for ‘natural-born citizenship cited

I have no reason to believe that Obama was born in Kenya instead of in Hawaii as he states he was. I do have another concern.

I question why he doesn’t just release his birth certificate and put these questions to rest. Is there something else on his birth certificate he doesn’t want us to see? What is it?

Have you considered this? What are your thoughts?

    This topic is what is often refered to “clutching at straws”. Here;s a free meaning for those who are interested: To clutch at straws: If someone is in serious trouble and tries anything to help them, even though their chances of success are probably nil, they are clutching at straws.
    Thank you.

    When was Obama born? What year? I forget the year Hawaii became part of the USA. Maybe he was born BEFORE it became part of the USA. That would disqualify him. And maybe that is why he does not want to show his BC.

  4. Actually, it’s because he was born a woman. Okay I have no proof of that, but while we’re all speculating……

    No really, his skin does appear supple, some might even say womanly.

    All he needs to do is present it to a court as John McCain did. A ruling from a court would settle the matter, and he wouldn’t have to show the document to the world if it is too embarrassing.

    You said two things that I find very true with politics. One, “it’s not about race it is about winning.” Some are so consumed with winning that they do not care how they run the race. Two, “It’s a witch hunt.” The problem is, that we the voting public, are faced with the problem of having to sort through the, which hunt, to make the best vote.

  7. It was checked out before hand. And found to have no merit.

    Of course it is a witch hunt. That is what politics are all about. But it has happened before. There were even rumors that James Buchanan was gay. It is about impeding the charactor of your opponent. Sorry not about race, it’s about winning. Same would happen if it were two white male candidates. If you think Obamas people aren’t scowering the earth for some dirt on McCain then you’re crazy.

  8. My question is: Why wasn’t this checked out on both before now? For our children to go into pre-school, we must present birth certification – and we as a nation don’t check the credentials of men/women running for office beforehand. Why am I not surprised?

    Right on Jana!! I don’t think we have had this much at stake before. Doubt any man could solve all of our problems, doubt some men could solve any of our problems. Lay it on the table, Hussein!!

  10. Very interesting set of questions! Just think. If Mr. Obama is NOT a naturalized citizen then who would , once more, become the standard barrier for the DNC??

    Question two. Is Mr. Obama A black man? Is Mr. Obama multimultiracial? His mother and father are two different races.

    Just a few of MY personal thoughts.

    NO!
    I am not a raciest! I am very thrilled to have a man of color in this race.

  11. I think it is fair for both candidates to prove they can legally qualify as president. If a Calfornia judge can rule an investigation on McCain, it is fair to require the same of Obama.

  12. This is a witch hunt. If it isn’t about his preacher, it’s about his middle name. If it isn’t about his birth certificate, it’s about the military. If it isn’t about race, it’s about abortion. has anyone ever done all this investigation about a political candidate before? No, and why?
