Iowa GOP takes shot at Obama with ‘natural-born citizen’ requirement

Don Racheter, chairman of the Iowa GOP’s platform committee, said in an interview Monday afternoon with Radio Iowa’s O. Kay Henderson that members of the state party are questioning Obama’s citizenship through a plank in their platform draft.

“There are many Republicans who feel that Barack Obama is not a ‘natural born citizen’ because his father was not an American when he was born and, therefore, feel that according to the Constitution he’s not qualified to be president, should not have been allowed to be elected by the Electoral College or even nominated by the Democratic Party in 2008, so this is an election year,” Racheter told Henderson.

...

Section 1.16 of the part of the platform draft related to elections states: “We believe candidates for President of the United States must show proof of being a ‘natural born citizen’ as required by Article II, Section I of the Constitution — beginning with the 2012 election.”

The meaning of the term “natural born citizen” has been the subject of debate. A November 2011 Congressional Research Service report suggests that the term refers to a person who is entitled to citizenship from birth, including those who were born in the United States and those who were born outside the country to parents who are U.S. citizens.

According to that definition, there’s little question whether Obama is a “natural born citizen.”

Obama was born in Hawaii in August 1961. His father, the late economist Barack Obama Sr., was born in Kenya and from 1959 to 1962 studied at the University of Hawaii, where he met Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, an anthropologist who was born in Kansas.

THe Birthers are purists, believing that is Obama was not born in the US that somehow that discredits him from being President.

They of all people should know that the very nature of an affirmative action hire so often means the rules are suspended to reach a more worthy goal.

So to the Birthers I say - Even if you are right,.....forget about it, it doesn't matter, it's irrelevant in this case, move on.

There, fixed.

I know it's easy to compare birthers to morons, but really, that comparison is a little unfair to all the morons out there. Remember, they didn't ask for any of this.

Well to be fair, when McCain was questioned about his Birth circumstances ... back when I think he ran against Bush, he brought the issue up to be resolved before the Senate IIRC.

Obama on the other hand waited until he was long in office to even produce his paperwork.

MAny speculate it worked in his advantage, up until Trump started putting steam behind the whole question -then he produced a BC.

Anytime people "want" to find a conspiracy..... there always seems to be just enough to feed it to keep it going.

I'm not a Birther but if in 5 or 10 years we find out he was in fact not born in this country, I wouldn't be stunned.

The sceptic in me doubts that all this time that has passed, not one person has come forward to "expose him" ... there would have to be a few bucks to be had and how likely is it that no one has cashed in?

Of course. Because McCain actually was born outside of the US. Once McCain proved his eligibility, did he still have a bunch of imbeciles hounding him for DNA samples? Did he have to run the gauntlet of unsatisfactory evidence?

And please note while I may have compared birthers to imbeciles here, I do not intend any offense whatsover to actual imbeciles. Same goes for hounds.

It is absolutely disgusting the way the right-wing racists refuse to acknowledge the incredible talent and intelligence that Obama has! So they engage in this slimy underhanded slam of pretending that the only reason he became president is due to affirmative action. It must be very painful for them to think that a black man is smarter and more intelligent than they are themselves!
