U.S. Supreme Court “Evading” Obama’s Eligibility

U. S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas told a House subcommittee that the Court was “evading” the issue of Obama’s eligibility to be President under the requirements of the Constitution.  The question came before the Court for consideration as early as December 2008, but Justice David Souter denied the case a hearing.

It takes four justices to agree to hear a case  before the Court. So far no case has gotten that far, but a few are currently in the lower federal courts. The issue of Obama’s eligibility has arisen since it is known his father was a British subject and his own grandmother claims she attended his birth in Kenya.  According to the U.S. Constitution only a “natural born” citizen can be President.

Several lawsuits are demanding Obama show his official birth certificate, but he has steadfastly refused. He also sealed his other personal records, including all his school and college records. He has declined to explain this unusual behavior and has spent about $1.7 million in legal fees to keep his records secret from the public.
