I had read about the ongoing case in GA, where a judge had finally agreed to rule on President Obama’s eligibility to be President of the United States. A couple of things came to mind:
- If Judge Michael Malihi rules in favor for the plaintiffs, on any one of the three issues in front of him (the “fraudulent use” of at least one Social Security Number, by Obama; the validity of the most recent birth certificate produced by the White House; whither or not Obama qualifies as a “Natural Born Citizen” and thus would or would not be eligible per the Constitution to hold the office of the President.), or if the ruling is against same, will this case be pushed up to the next level for appeal? Or will it go straight to SCOTUS?
- Will an ultimate ruling finding Obama to be “at fault” in any of the three charges, but particularly in not meeting the basic requirement of having both parents as American Citizens at the time of his birth regarding his “Natural Born Citizen” status, cause his current term to be held “null and void”… along with all appointments, laws, and orders signed by him during said term? And would the resulting findings require an immediate impeachment process to be started? Over and above that, would at least the major implications from this include criminal charges being brought to bear against senior members of the legislative branch, for not properly vetting … or even lying/misrepresenting Obama as a qualified Presidential candidate. Would or could this also be true for the DNC at the national level and senior members of any number of the Sate branches? And how many of the members of the media might be complicit?
- And as an aside, what about the GOP? McCain got a “hall pass” from congress IRT his citizenship status. But this was not something which would, after all is said and done, supersede the constitution. Like it or not, McCain was not born on US soil, and as such, though he meets the requirements for US citizenship, he does not for “Natural Born Citizen”. (For future reference, Governor Jindal does not meet the requirements either. And though he is a good man, and appears to follow conservative precepts more often than not, he … through no fault of his own … fails to meet the specific standard set by the Constitution, as neither of his parents had obtained American Citizen status, at the time of his birth.
Some food for thought here. What say ya’ll?
