Doubts about Obama’s Eligibility Grow

Instead of subsiding, the doubts (and lawsuits) over Obama’s eligibility are growing in number and in concern. Recently, even liberal columnist Camille Paglia has written that the eligibility issue has not been satisfactorily resolved. She goes on to say that the “embargo” on his college records is also “troubling. ”

Paglia is not alone in her concerns, but she is among the first of the few liberals who care or will admit that there might be a problem with Obama’s eligibility to be President. Legality seems to be of low concern to the liberal mindset.

Controversy has arisen because Obama has refused since the election obama-nobamatvcampaign to prove his eligibility to be President under the Constitutional requirement, Article 2, Section 1, that the President be a “natural born” citizen. When asked to provide a valid birth certificate (as his opponent did), Obama refused and had his records sealed.

Part of the controversy has to do with the fact that his own grandmother in Kenya claims that she attended his birth and he was born in Kenya. It has also been noted that his stepfather moved the family to Indonesia when Obama was a boy where he changed his name and registered him as Indonesian. The United States does not have duel citizenship with either country. Obama also traveled to Pakistan in 1981 on a foreign passport.

In addition to these troubling questions, Obama had all of his college records sealed. This is unusual behavior for anyone let alone a public official, unless of course, the records would show he didn’t register as an American. In all cases, Obama has refused all requests to see his records. His response has been to hire law firms to keep his records sealed and hidden from public view. The question remains: Why?
