If all you say is true why did Barracks lawyers claim privacy issues and harms?
As far as I know, that's not exactly what happened. What Obama's lawyers have claimed is that Berg's lawsuit was without merit, and apparently the
(lower) Court agreed and dismissed the case.
The privacy issues were claimed by Hawaiian officials, who said that according to State laws they couldn't release Barack Obama's birth
Why if it's all easy cheesy doesn't your man Barrack just get a certified copy of the Hawaiian BC and release it?
No one, with any legal standing or authority, has requested him to. All the lawsuits were dismissed, and until a Court requests him to present it,
he's not obliged to present it.
In fact, I'm sure that if any Court would request it, it would be to review it only, and it wouldn't be released to the public.
Seems to me you want to put the onus on us to prove a negative instead of on the candidate himself, interesting to say the least. Or is it that
you don't care if he is eligible for the job?
As a Barack Obama supporter I have also difficulty understanding that - even though he is not required to do so - why doesn't he clear this once and
But, first of all, we have to remember that Obama has taught Constitutional law for 12 years. I would think (and hope) he knows what he's doing
better than any of us can suppose the reasons behind his actions are.
Let's make this mental exercise though: Imagine he releases his birth certificate. What if someone then - with or without merit - claims it is fake,
forged or invalid? Probably someone would take him to Court then. In all likeliness, no matter what, someone would take him to Court anyway.
And what other way is there to assert the validity of his birth certificate unless it's through the Highest authority? Unless the Supreme Court
decides on it, there would always be a doubt, or at least, probability for people to appeal and drag this on.
Even if the Supreme Court decides (and I'm sure it will have to), there will be people that will doubt it.
So, my guess is that Obama and his lawyers are waiting for a lawsuit with merit, that the Supreme Court agrees to hear, and decide on it once and for
I could be totally wrong and he is hiding the fact that he wasn't born in the US, and therefor can't be President, even though he's a lawyer who
studied and taught Constitutional law, and while being aware of all this, still decided to run for President...
Doesn't make much sense to me. But in any case, I don't have any evidence to doubt his reasons, because unlike Bush - who you referenced in your
post - he hasn't done anything to make me suspicious of his intentions.
