President Obama was born in Hawaii. He is, therefore, eligible to be President of the United States of America. His mother and father were legal citizens of the United States at the time of his birth. Again, he’s eligible to be President. His eligibility to be President has even been verified by the republican Governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle. Go here to see a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate: http://www.fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate. People need to stop trying to smear this man about his constitutional eligibility to be President.
If you want to strongly oppose President Obama, then express your substantive disagreements you have with him on critical issues and policies. I have substantive disagreements with President Obama on a number of important issues and policies, but I am not one of these people in the blogosphere trying to smear him about not being eligible to be President.
I wanted to offer the blogosphere a serious counternarrative to what many blogs out there are saying about President Obama not being born in America, and that he was not an American citizen at the time of his birth. People have a right to question your motivations when you are not willing to go to the above website and see for yourself that President Obama was born in America. When people start to question whether or not you are a racist, then don’t get mad. I contend that it is a fair question for them to ask you. If you would simply look at the evidence that has been presented at the above website, you will find there is no doubt that President Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as President.
Don’t believe many of the negative things you read about President Obama on the internet. When you see some of these negative things, I encourage you to engage in your own serious research to resolve whether or not what you have read about him is true. You can disagree with President Obama without hating him. You can disagree with him without resorting to using racist comments, personal attacks, and etc.
If you just cannot stand the sight of President Obama, I would like for you to at least consider having a reverence for the office he occupies. I am not trying to get you to become a democrat or to support President Obama, but I am trying to get you to understand that President Obama is constitutionally eligible to be President.
