Oh No! Not The Obama Birther Issue Again!

Updated on December 28, 2013

How Birthers View President Obama's Birth Certificate


The birther issue is back.

Copyright 2012 VVeasey Publishing


Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett originally said that President Obama's name, wouldn't appear on the Arizona ballot for president, because he wasn't certain the president was born in the United States. But...he changed his stance, after contacting Hawaii state officials, who once again, verified that the president was indeed, born in Hawaii the United States Of America.

Republican Congressman, Mike Coffman, recently questioned whether President Obama was an American, stating, “I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don’t know that,” “But I do know this, that in his heart, he’s not an American. He’s just not an American.”

They Don't Want Obama To Be President

These people just don't want, President Obama, to be a legally elected president. They can't, stand the idea, or reality of a black man being elected president. They're obsessed with doing everything they can, no matter how crazy, stupid or idiotic, to try to show that he's not legitimate or "qualified" to be president.

They say, He wasn't born in the United States, he's a secret Muslim, he not one of us, he doesn't really understand America, he's an alien.

Their Latest Crazy Thing

And, now for their newest craziest thing is...drum roll please!...Wait for it! Here's the big finale!...He wasn't fully vetted before he became president. They say "We don't really know who he really is or what his "real" agenda is. Which he won't reveal until after he's reelected president". Really? Really, Really? Oh Please!

Obama Has Been President For Almost 4 Years

The man has been president for almost 4 years. If we don't know who he is or what he stands for by now. We'll never know it, because obviously we're to stupid to be able to see it. So much has been written about, President Obama, it's probably in the millions of words. Not to mention he's written I's three books about himself and his life.

This is the new strategy of the wacky people, the racists and the just the flat out corrupt politicians, who want to defeat President Obama at all cost, no matter how low they have to stoop crawl or slither to do it. They will say anything to get people keep the president at arms instill doubt about make people distrust make him seem an outsider. Because, to them, he is and outsider, an other. He's, how should we put it...beyond the pale!

The Whole Spectrum Of Birthers

The whole spectrum of the birthers, from the lowest, all the way up to some of the top politicians, are absolutely convinced that President Obama, can't legally be president, because he wasn't born in the United States or that he's not a natural born citizen.

Don Racheter, chairman of the Iowa GOP’s platform committee, is the latest politician to try to use this ploy, to Delegitmize Obama's right to be president

Racheter states,“There are many Republicans who feel that Barack Obama is not a ‘natural born citizen’ because his father was not an American when he was born and, therefore, feel that according to the Constitution he’s not qualified to be president, should not have been allowed to be elected by the Electoral College or even nominated by the Democratic Party in 2008, so this is an election year,” “It’s a shot at him.”

Lets examine this claim.

The Constitution, Natural Born Citizens

Article II, of the U.S. Constitution 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 birthers say, Obama's father was Kenyan and Obama was born in Kenya, so he isn't a natural born citizen even though his mother was.

There are two legal principles that define how one gains citizenship at birth:

1.Jus sanguinus (“right of blood”), You gain citizenship at birth because your parents are U.S. citizens

2.Jus soli (“right of soil”), this means your are a citizen because you were born on U.S. soil.

14th Amendment

The Fourteenth Amendment

The Fourteenth Amendment states 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", So, anyone born on U.S. soil is, a birthright citizen, regardless of the citizenship status of their parents. By this rule, President Obama, is a natural born citizen, regardless of where his parents were born, because he was born on American soil, Hawaii.

Some people, think there is a difference, between native born and natural born, but this is false. You are native, of whatever country you're born in, and a native citizen is a natural born citizen. But, article II doesn't just say only a natural born citizen can be president, it states"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States: shall be eligible to be president". You see it says that a citizen not just a natural born citizen can be president.

But of course, for those folks who are obsessed with delegitimizing President Obama's presidency. No amount of proof, facts, truths or reasoning, will find a way into their minds. They will always see, a conspiracy to keep the "real" Obama (they're obsessed with) "hidden".

Not Legitimate For A Black Man To Be President

No amount of documentary proof, will ever be proof enough, to legitimize President Obama's presidency for them, because, deep in their hearts they feel, it will never be legitimate, for a black man, to be President of the United States.

That holy office is only reserved for white males.

      You say "Why? Because he IS a fake! The FBI, CIA, and all other security agencies have been told to look the other way by an undisclosed "higher" power so that Obama can continue to incorporate Socialism unimpeded."

      And you know this how?

      what proof or evidence do have?

      Prudent 5 years ago is it that you can blindly and foolishly defend Obama? Every, and I mean EVERY document that he presents is surrounded by controversy. Why? Because he IS a fake! The FBI, CIA, and all other security agencies have been told to look the other way by an undisclosed "higher" power so that Obama can continue to incorporate Socialism unimpeded. Obama was selected by this higher power simply because he has their same socialist ideas, and the fact that he is "black" gives him an excuse for all those who oppose him to cry racism. It is too bad that Orly Taitz has such bad speaking ability. It gives her the appearance of lunacy; however she is a hero. In time, history will look back upon us and note her brave efforts while condemning all those who turned their heads from the truth.

      Open your eyes so that you may examine the evidence which appears before us all. Our liberties, granted by our Creator and constitutionally protected by our Founding Fathers, are being struck down one by one as we sit and watch without concern.

      thanks for your comments

      I agree american romance is discribing how Romney has flip flopped on every position he previously held. but that doesn't bother american romance and those like him.

      They overlook that and turn a blind eye and deaf ear to Romney's flip flopping and outright lying (including other republicans.

      But they nitpick anything the president does or doesn't do and imagine things that they think he's secretly doing as if it's a stark reality that no one but they can see.

      American Romance gave a pretty good description of Romney up there. I guess Romney's the best multi-wife flip-flopper choice these days for all the bigoted Right Wing Evangelists? If the Right is so concerned about President Obama's citizenship, then prove it. "Boner" could do something about it but he knows it's a losing proposition. Not to mention he's the biggest coward in the party, unless of course you count all the sheep watching FOX so-called news every night who are too scared to get their info from multiple sources.

      President Obama is an American and a damn good one. Deal with it. I'd question Romney though. Daddy is a Mexican, isn't he? And I heard that grand-pappy shunned the4 United States for infringing on his religious rights. To me that's giving up your American citizenship. He chose Mexico insteag. I want to see an un-photoshopped long form birth certidicate for the whole clan. It's a Mexican Mormon conspiracy I tell you.

      American Romance

      You say "Do you have the right to call me racist simply becaue you want to?" You made this accusation now show me where did I call you a racist?

      Why is attacking when a conservative states undisputable facts? Is there something wrong with bringing the truth forward? Why is race brought into it? The majority of whites voted this man into office? Racial divide comes from the black community not the white community. Do you have the right to call me racist simply becaue you want to? If we are all seeking truth and common sense is it right to make up stuff because it helps your cause?

      American Romance...American ole pal

      at least you think you know who the president is...but

      that's not what your republican officials or other republicans are saying.

      I like the way you and others blame the president for the increase in racial tensions or racial problems. I think the talking point is "Obama is most divisive president in American history". That's true, but not because he's divisive as a person but because he's the first black president.

      There are many, many people who find that offensive.

      They think this a white country and should always been headed by a white President. That's why they're so offended, angry and obsessed with doing any and everything they can to get this black man out of office.

      (but I'm sure you don't know any people like that do you)

      So this is the a classic case of blaming the person you're attacking and angry at, for causing your anger because you're offended that this black man had the nerve to get elected to highest office in the land, that was created and reserved only for white men.

      But I'm sure you don't know of any people like that do you?
