“How Did a Foreigner Get Elected President?” That’s the question that must be on the minds of some anti-Obama bloggers.
- Why did no state Secretary of State verify Obama’s eligibility?
- Why did the Democratic Party in sworn statements say Obama was eligible without a detailed background investigation?
- Why did not one single Congressman object when the electoral vote was counted?
- Why are all the lawsuits being dismissed?
- Why is the mainstream news media ignoring the whole issue?
Is it a great conspiracy? Is everyone afraid?
The answer is more prosaic than that: there is no rational basis for doubting Obama’s eligibility, and so all the people listed above, being rational people, didn’t doubt it. They accepted FactCheck.org’s report that the birth certificate was good. If they had any doubts, they were dispelled by the Hawaiian Health Department’s visit to the vault and subsequent report. One would expect any competent government official to know that the triple-whammy citizenship requirement was a myth.
So Barack Obama sailed through and became President, without objection. The reason nobody takes you nObamas seriously IS BECAUSE YOU ARE WRONG. If there were real troubling facts about Obama’s birth then the media would start covering it and it would catch on; but the media have fact checkers, and you nObamas have no facts. If the triple-whammy citizenship theory had validity, we’d be seeing law school professors writing articles1, and media legal consultants nudging reporters about the story. If there were any real facts, or real legal challenge it would quickly become generally accepted, because most people are reasonable and have a fair idea of who they can trust. But there aren’t and it isn’t and they don’t.
You’re getting nowhere because your position is bankrupt.
Um…now look…now look, mate, I’ve definitely ‘ad enough of this. That Obama eligibility argument is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not ‘alf an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein’ tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.
… ‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This Obama eligibility argument is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! ‘E’s kicked the bucket, ‘e’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-ARGUMENT!!

1 Univ. of Arizona law professor Gabriel J Chin did write an article challenging Senator McCain’s eligibility to become president. I believe this article would have gotten more attention if McCain had been elected.
