I don’t know if I am a “birther,” but I do think that since the Constitution says our President must be a “natural-born citizen,” our presidential candidates should prove that they are upholding the oath they swear an oath to “preserve, protect, and defend” by producing a valid birth certificate.
Certain media figures like Fox News hosts Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck have taken the position that those wanting to verify Barack Obama’s citizenship are way off base. In fact today, Beck stated that it is the “dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”
With our country in the state it’s in and people beginning to question whether any of the legislation that Obama and Congress are passing is even Constitutional, wouldn’t it be a good idea to at least check? The document that those covering for Obama are claiming to be the birth certificate is actually a “Certificate of Live Birth,” and my children couldn’t even play little league if all we presented was that.
All these critical-thinking Americans seem to be asking for is a little bit of the transparency campaign promise that Obama and his cronies pledged. If “birthers” are so “discredited” as Beck claims, why doesn’t Obama just shut the debate down and produce the document. What is to hide, really?
