I distinctly recall Bush being REQUIRED to produce his records for everything under the sun,
Actually no president has ever been REQUIRED to release any college or specific personal records to the public. It has never been a constitutional
requirement and Bush was never required then. Bush may have chosen to release his records but it certainly was not forced upon him.
As for Bushes eligibility, did you see his long form birth certificate before he got elected? Did you see Bush Snrs long for birth certificate? Did
you see Clintons long form birth certificate? Can you account for the previous 43 showing all their long form birth certificates?
Get back to me on that will you
If Obama has nothing to hide
Obama really has nothing to hide. Its interesting that opponents and those who personally dislike him as president have the arrogance to think that
because he does not respond to their demands, that his 'hiding'. Why does he has to hide anything? If his not constitutionally required why should
he have to hide?
The elections are over, campaigning is over, he won the elections and thats just the end of it. He is not required to prove anything further to
disgruntled voters who will hold hatred regardless neither should he bother. That is just something people like you will have to deal with.
and is such a great guy
I dont think his a 'great guy', I dont think his the 'messiah', I dont think his 'the next kennedy'. I have my own opinions of him both good and
bad. He has at most satisfied my support for him, although other issues like him keeping the Patriot act around dissappoint me.
His Punahou school records? His Occidental College records? His Columbia University records? His Columbia thesis? His Harvard Law School
records? His Harvard Law Review articles?
What do you want his kindergarten records as well? Maybe you can figure out whether he was american enough to play around with G.I joes?
His not required to release any of those. He won the elections, campaign time is over, get over it.
past Presidents NEVER had this kind of doubt about who they were
By people like you? You are right. Never has a president ever had this amount of doubt. After all, his black, has a middle name Hussien, surely he
could not have won the elections. Its impossible right?
You right, never have you had this kind of doubt about a president. You certainly didnt give a damn about Bush after what he had done and conveniently
popped up here after Obama was elected. I agree with you there.
However, this is much more than just a "birther" issue, it is an issue of Constitutionality.
Alright then! If its a constitutional issue then I'll sort that out for you right now! The presidents eligibility is to be confirmed by the electors
Obama was confirmed as president by the electoral college, by confirmation fo the house speaker on December 15th 2008:
The Hawaiian government also confirmed Obama as Hawaiian born from Governor Linda Lingle:
as further confirmed personally by Health director Fukino vai records:
Obama's short form birth certificate presented is also considered authentic by Hawaiian officials:
"They're just words," said spokeswoman Janice Okubo. "That (what was posted on the Internet) is considered a birth certificate from the state
"There's only one form of birth certificate," she said, and it's been the same since the 1980s. Birth certificates evolve over the decades, she
said, and there are no doubt differences between the way birth certificates looked when Obama was born and now.
"When you request a birth certificate, the one you get looks exactly like the one posted on his site," she said. "That's the birth
I'm not saying one way or the other that he is or isn't a citizen because that isn't really what matters.....
And yet here you are insisting otherwise.
