Reading and finding things on the internet can often be a source of mis-information. Please keep that in mind as you read this.
When I logged onto wordpress, I saw a guys blog on the front page. When I clicked on it and read his post, I found this link. If you don’t have the time or interest to read through the whole document, I’ll summarize for you since I did take the time and had the interest. Basically, this attorney is filing a civil action against Obama and is demanding that Obama and/or the Democratic National Convention produce evidence of Obama’s citizenship. The attorney alledges that Obama is either a naturalized citizen or an illegal alien, and is not a natural-born citizen and is therefore inelligible to run for President.
No matter where you stand in this election or which candidate you support, this is a frightening claim. Why is there not a system in place to verify the elligibility of ANY candidate before they are nominated by one of the two major political parties?? And further more, why is there not a system in place to verify elligibility for a seat in the Senate? The fact that this attorney has any standing at all to make this claim is really disturbing.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out. If Obama is found to be ineligible, will there be no Democratic Candidate, or will Hillary step back in? After this election, will a checking system be put in place to ensure that this claim can never arise again? The ramifications of this claim could be huge. I’m kinda surprised we haven’t heard about this on some news cast. We’ll have to wait and see…
