Thank you god!!! I am ready to cry! After 3 years of battle for the first time a judge ruled that Obama’s motion to dismiss is denied. I can now depose Obama and everybody else envolved without any impediment.

In case people forgot...Obama released his BC.
And yes... I know the internet experts say it's fake...but what did you expect???
I find it funny that the OP thinks this will make Obama supporters nervous....and yet he is cheering for Obama to be disqualified...because Obama can't be defeated in the election.

So their forcing Obama to follow a document (the Constitution) he spent his whole presidency trying to rip apart? Oh let the mud slinging begin!

I don't think there is much to argue over here; it is required that the American President be a natural born citizen. People didn't think that Obama was born outside of America just because he's black; its really not a race thing. The part where it gets iffy, as far as I understand it, is that Obama's childhood was spent in Kenya/Indonesia, and his grandmother claimed he was born in Kenya. Basically, upon digging into his childhood, it became a possibility that he may not have been born in America and that both of his parents may not have been American citizens; couple this with republicans fearing him being too liberal, or just not prepared to put a black man in office (the reason really doesn't matter), and it becomes apparent why they began to question his eligibility to legally hold office as POTUS.
There is reasonable doubt involved.
His inability to dismiss these claims by simply providing a physical copy of his birth records made it seem like he was covering something up. Basically, he should have just presented the physical copy when first confronted with the issue, took care of it professionally, and put it behind him. This whole, "stop picking on him," and "let's blindly trust his authority" ignores the fact that he was very hesitant to provide the information requested of him. What he did provide could have easily been faked since he released it online. Digital images are easy to edit, and easy to debunk when edited.
Look, the fact is that if he can provide the information, then he should, simply to put this behind him. If he can't, then that really says something. It's not a matter of protecting his ego, its a matter of his eligibility to legally hold office.
I understand that his fanboys and supporters would prefer to not have to confront the issue of his citizenship because, in the case that he is not a citizen, they will feel absolutely betrayed and lied to, but we all have to face the reality at hand here which is that until he provides physical evidence proving hes a natural born citizen, we cannot ASSUME that he is. Nor can we assume that he is not. Simply put, we don't know, and so we should be eager to actually find out and finally settle this stupid issue.
