  1. Errr….are you sure re the OJ definition?
    If correct Oby’s disqualified without the long form birth certificate.
    Hilary’s mob looked at it and went nowhere.


  2. “If correct Oby’s disqualified without the long form birth certificate.”

    Yeah, people have already made that point, ie that Obama senior was a British citizen, but in actuality, its conditional upon who his real father is. That info should be on the real BC.

    Hilary’s mob have got a lot of skeletons in their own closet. They are not in any position to threaten Obama.


  3. There’s a long list of precedent judgements at Wiki, mostly concerning mere “citizenship”, seems the higher Courts have not yet defined “natural born” and continue to refuse to recognise the standing of all petitioners, or straight up refused to hear.
    Seems “natural born” as defined by common law leaves Oby out in the cold.


    Beats me why some Republican State Governor doesn’t act, a State “must” have standing at SCOTUS.

    Why do the Republicans sit on their hands.
    Perhaps the potential Constitutional crisis is more horrendous than Oby.
    ie. if he’s not the Pres, nothing he ever signed is valid.


  4. Seems “natural born” as defined by common law leaves Oby out in the cold.

    That’s not how I read it. The article says:

    Since the Constitution does not specify what the requirements are to be a “citizen” or a “natural born citizen”, the majority adopted the common law of England:

    The court ruled [in United States v. Wong Kim Ark]:

    It thus clearly appears that by the law of England for the last three centuries, beginning before the settlement of this country, and continuing to the present day, aliens, while residing in the dominions possessed by the crown of England, were within the allegiance, the obedience, the faith or loyalty, the protection, the power, and the jurisdiction of the English sovereign; and therefore every child born in England of alien parents was a natural-born subject, unless the child of an ambassador or other diplomatic agent of a foreign state, or of an alien enemy in hostile occupation of the place where the child was born. III. The same rule was in force in all the English colonies upon this continent down to the time of the Declaration of Independence, and in the United States afterwards, and continued to prevail under the constitution as originally established.
