I can’t believe that I have to write about this again folks. Today I have to get back to the subject of Barack Obama’s right to be President again. This is not something that I personally care to discuss. However it continues to be a topic of conversation amongst my peers in the political blogosphere, and with some of my more politically motivated friends and associates.

The basic premise of all of their arguments is that Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen, and therefore cannot hold the office of the President of the Untied States. Now we have to reexamine this all one more time so let’s get it over with shall we?

The big argument I hear the most when it comes to Barack Obama’s eligibility or ineligibility is that he was not born in the United States and as a result of this fact he cannot hold the office of President of the United States. If he truly was not born in the US then he does not meet the qualifications required to be President.

Another argument that I have heard for Obama’s ineligibility is the fact that his father was a citizen of the United Kingdom. This would apply to his lack of qualifications because a natural born citizen’s parentage would both be born in the US. At one time on Obama’s own website it was stated that Barack Obama considered himself a citizen of the United Kingdom.

Yet another argument against Obama’s eligibility is the time he spent in Indonesia as a youth. At the time f Obama’s residency in that country which was roughly from 1967 to 1972 Indonesia did not recognize dual citizenships. To attend school in that country you had to be a citizen of Indonesia. Obama’s school records clearly indicate that he was a citizen of Indonesia as well as a Muslim. If what I have just said is true then the best that Barack Obama can hope for is to be a naturalized US citizen.

Now I will tell you that all of this could be cleared up simply by Barack Obama presenting his supposed original Hawaiian Birth Certificate for authentication. Obama himself even stated that he hoped all of this controversy could be cleared up by presenting the document, which Obama has said that he did, but some people say otherwise.

Now some will say that he presented a Certificate of Live Birth from the State of Hawaii and not a Birth Certificate. Obama says that it is his birth certificate. I even have friends in Hawaii who agree with Obama and they are conservative Republicans not liberal Democrats. According to sources under Hawaiian law if your parents reside in Hawaii for a period of one year they can apply for and receive a Certificate of Live Birth from the state. All this means is that you were born live but it does not mean that you were born in Hawaii or in the US.

According to the US Constitution Article two clause 5 (Qualifications for Office) reads as follows. “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.” Article two clause 5 states these further requirements also:
By the time of their inauguration, the President and Vice President must be:
• natural born citizens (or citizens at the time of the Constitution's adoption)
• at least thirty-five years old
• Inhabitants for at least fourteen years of the United States.
Now it appears that the Supreme Court of the United States is scheduled to hear the case Leo C, Donofrio v. Nina Mitchell Wells, Secretary of the State of New Jersey-US Supreme Court Docket No. 08A407. The date for this hearing is December 5th, 2008. The case was originally sought pre election to have the names of Barack Obama, John McCain, and Roger Calero New Jersey ballots, and for a stay of the national election pending a review by The US Supreme Court of the candidate’s eligibility as pertains to being Natural Born Citizens under Article Two of the constitution. Incidentally this case is being heard just ten days before the Electoral College meets.

I hope that when the US Supreme Court hears this case and rules on it that they get it right. If Obama can legally prove that he has the right to be on New Jerseys ballot, and the right to be our President then the sore losers need to shut up, let it go, and soldier on. If it is legally proven that Obama cannot be on New Jerseys ballots, or President of the United States then he needs to shut up, let it go, and soldier on out of the way. He should also face federal charges for attempting to defraud and deprive the nation and its people of a legitimate President.

I also hope that this is the last time I have to discuss this topic with you. It is a very business attempting to steal a presidency. I for one don’t think that this is the case; however it isn’t up to me to decide. It is up to those nine Supreme Court Justices sitting on the bench of the US Supreme Court to decide if there was any wrong doing. I hope you all have a good day and I will see you all soon, CIAO4NOW!!!!!
