Obama eligibility tops AOL News

Internet giant America Online headlined its daily news coverage today with a story and polls covering the “Birthers,” a group of people it describes as “fringe conservatives convinced that Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because of supposed questions surrounding his birth status.”

The AOL coverage quotes an extensive Politico article and cites WorldNetDaily as the source for news on the United States Justice Foundation’s most recent attempt to demand Obama give legal evidence of his constitutional eligibility to serve as president.

Politico’s coverage of the questions that still linger over Obama’s birth, however, is far from kind.

“Viewed as irrelevant by the White House, and as embarrassing by much of the Republican Party,” writes Politico blogger Ben Smith, “the subculture still thrives from the conservative website WorldNetDaily, which claims that some 300,000 people have signed a petition demanding more information on Obama’s birth.”

Like I have said over and over, this will not go away until Obama proves his constitutional eligibility to serve as president! Now that he is acting more like a dictator than an elected president we need to push our congessmen harder on getting the truth out of him!

  1. Ha! I just this evening had a chance to debunk some leftard’s rehearsal of Smith’s (Politico’s) version of the issue, on another blog, so I’m not going to bother too much with it here. Suffice it to say that, by the third paragraph, Smith has already committed two howlers. He really ought to book up on this stuff; he’s fallen down before.

    1) No Hawaiian official has ever confirmed that Obama was born in Hawaii. They have confirmed the existence of a long-form birth certificate, but have said nothing about the information contained therein. Nothing. No one.

    2) The British citizenship of Obama’s “dad presumptive” is just one of the problematic issues surrounding his birth. Per the strictest definition of “natural born citizen” that was current at the time of the Constitutional Convention, Obama is potentially disqualified on at least two counts. 1) It is not clear that he was born on American territory. 2) His father was not a US citizen.

  2. And, to repeat myself, even if Obama was born in Ruthenia to Warren Beatty and his secret gypsy bride, the required legal fix will not be difficult. No governments will fall. It is, however, important that Obama be shown up as a liar in even the basics of his life story. We must weaken Obama politically in any way we can, short of lying ourselves.

  3. Nice site and thanks for the mention. The fragmented blogs and people who understand the US Constitution need to organize. I don’t know how, though. Any thoughts?

  4. L4F-
    You could always post a blog or set up a group. Tea parties are popping up all over the place. Shouldn’t be that hard with all the people deciding they aren’t happy with the “savior”.
    I myself just know the basics. I also don’t remember studying it for very long in school.

  5. “We must weaken Obama politically in any way we can, short of lying ourselves.”

    Why pretend to restrict yourselves at this late date?

  6. Why you pretend that boy Obama is a saint and does not lie larrys, when in facts he has lied from the start of his campaign and still lying to the people. Obama: I will go line by line in the budget and any spending bill and remove the earmarks! Was that a lie larrys?

  7. I didn’t pay attention to the birth certificate issue until I noticed that Barry Soetoro had a team of lawyers blocking its release.
