Coming to you from the “outer cosmos” of the blogosphere, I am unable, once again, to restrain myself from the desperate, and wingnutty pastime of questioning Obama’s citizenship. Even though, it seems very likely that the whole thing will be swept under the rug…when new developments appear, I just can’t help myself.
Here’s the latest via Atlas Shrugs:
Coming out of Chicago, 2 years 9 months ago, a 26 page report on the importance of getting rid of the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution
Sarah P. Herlihy is employed by Kirkland & Ellis LLP http://www.kirkland.com . Note: this law firm is based in Chicago.
Bruce I. Ettelson, P.C. (aka PARTNER), is a Member of the finance committees for both U.S. Senators Barack Obama and Richard Durbin.
Check out that PDF:
Natural Born Citizenship clause “stupidist Provision” in Constitution? UnAmerican? Discriminatory (raaaaacist)???
Sounds like one of the more “fatally flawed” parts of the Constitution, doesn’t it? Why should anyone abide by something so obviously stupid, and racist?
Also…Has anybody taken the time and initiative to track down Obama’s hospital in Hawaii?
And no hospital has yet been found that has a record of Obama being born or mom ever being there.

Pamela Geller reminds us:
Currently, there are 16 cases in 12 states (with 2 before the Supreme Court) contending that Barack Obama is constitutionally ineligible to be sworn in as President of the United States.
David Horowitz wants the the right to get over it:
If the facts in the Obama case were not in dispute it would be a different matter. No one doubts that Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Austria to Austrian parents and therefore is ineligible to be President under our Constitutional rules. But in Obama’s case the facts are in dispute and Obama — who is now president-elect — will dispute them. And that means that 9 unelected officials, all of whom have partisan allegiances, will decide those facts and therefore decide whether he is to be president. So the real question is what would be the political consequences of having 9 justices — and more likely 5 justices — overturn the will of 64 million voters.
Consider the bitterness, the pathological hatred of Bush, the sabotage of America’s war effort by Democrats who believed that his election was illegitimate. Consider the 2 month delay this caused in the transition to the new administration and how that affected our inability to prevent 9/11 (the comprehensive counter-terrorism plan commissioned by Bush arrived on his desk on 9/10). We are fighting wars on two fronts. The attack on Mumbai is a reminder that the same could happen here at any moment. Do we have the luxury of a fratricidal conflict within our borders?
I see his point, but my mother always taught me, two wrongs don’t make a right. I’m sorry that Obama lied to the American people. If it turns out that he lied about his eligibility, it is he who has disenfranchised them – not the Justices.
The media is starting to grudgingly do (incomplete, and inaccurate) stories about these questions. I think they’re in CYA mode at this point, making a minimum effort to cover the story in case it turns out to be the Constitutional crisis many believe it to be.
The media is also starting to notice the Constitutional issue I mentioned here with Hillary Clinton’s appointment to Secretary Of State.
I’d just as soon have the Republicans not press this one. Who else is Obama going to tap for this position? Les Aspin? Wesley Clark? No thank you. We’ll take Hills. We’re not happy about it, but good God, look at the alternatives.
