Even if there was a technicality and he wasn't officially a citizen what would you suggest we do? Do you think it would be wise to impeach a sitting president over a technicality and risk putting this country at risk? Is this what you want. The reason I say he is black is that there are many people in this country who still hate, dislike or look down on blacks. Many of them don't like the idea of a black president - So they spread rumors and try to discredit a guy who is trying to move this country in the right direction. How anyone could have voted for Bush is beyond me. He fooled me the first time around but not the 2nd time. I thought he would bring this country together and do the right things. IMHO he did lots of damage. Just FYI Obama did release his birth certificate in 2008 which showed he was born in Hawaii. Yet the same people who spread this rumor also began to cry that this certificate was fake. Suprise, suprise. This thread just goes to validate my feeling that Americans don't want to fix things and look forward they would rather sling crap and be negative. Why don't you spend your time doing something positive. I say this with total respect.
I think that you protest to much. I never allowed my comments to speak to either Administration’s policies or how we got to the mess we are in now and believe me I could have. My question is "Is Obama legally qualified to sit as President under Article II of the Constitution?" I say that this is an open question which could and should be easily answered. My question to you is – are we a country of laws that apply to everyone or a country that laws do not apply to the chosen few? If our laws, which are based on the Constitution, don't apply to everyone that what have we become and what will the direction of the nation continue to be.
I can see that this conversation is going no where so let's end it here.
Despite our difference of opinion on this matter, I still choose to believe we share more things in common then we have differences. Enjoy your summer, Lisa
