Obama Eligibility Not Checked by Congress

A report from the Congressional Research Service confirms that no congressional office or agency or state bothered to check to see if Obama qualified to be President under the requirements of the Constitution.  Article 2, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution states that a person must be a “natural born” citizen of the United States to be eligible to be president.


This information was contained in a report provided to congressional offices to tell Senators and House members how they could answer their constituents questions about Obama’s eligibility, birth certificate, etc. According to the report,  no person or office checked Obama’s qualifications because state and federal laws do not specifically require anyone to check.

Previously, this has rarely been an issue (with the except of Chester Arthur), because candidates for President have willing provided documentation or birth certificates when asked. John McCain provided such documentation during the last presidential contest.  However, Obama has consistantly and steadfastly refused to provide any documentation of any kind to answer questions regarding his “natural born” citizenship and prove his eligibility under the Constitution. Incredibly, the report concludes that Obama can go on refusing to release his birth certificate or other documentation because there is no law that says he must.
