Birthers’ Grand New Strategy: No Matter Where Obama Was Born, He Can’t Be President

by Ken Layne

This sign is also in the Secret Constitution of White People.As the election of America’s first “half-white” president nears its second anniversary, things still aren’t going that swell for the shrinking team of furious dingbats who hoped to sue Barack Obama out of the White House because his dad was an African black person. For two years, the teabaggers’ most prominent intellectual arm has waged a low-level courtroom war (mostly by email forwards) aimed at proving Barack Hussein Obama is not a citizen of America because he is a black person, and black people are — under the Original “O.G.” Constitution — simply slaves, worth only 3/5 of a normal fat white person, by body weight.

Also, the Birthers stuck to the claim that Barry Obama’s birth at a Hawaiian hospital was actually part of an elaborate conspiracy that went on for five decades with the help of U.S. newspapers, a U.S. state government and the doctors, nurses and administrators of an American hospital in Hawaii … all to groom a Soviet Muslim Alien for the presidency, because the conspirators wisely predicted (in 1961, when millions of American black kids still weren’t allowed to attend white schools or dine in white restaurants) that by 2008 the nation would be ready to choose a black person as a major-party nominee and then elect that same black person as America’s first African-American president. Genius!

Having successfully bamboozled the gullible, black-loving American populace on this whole “Hawaiian live birth” thing, the Soviet-Half-Muslin conspirators must think it’s just going to be easy times until 2012, when they plan to “elect” a gay Hindu robot-sex marijuana-selling dog-lady Palestinian as president. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, SORRY LIBS.

The Truthers have decided that the Founding Fathers probably meant to exclude Obama, in the Constitution, but they just forgot! These explosive new charges are part of, obviously, a new book by World Net Daily:

The authors concluded Obama may not be eligible regardless of his place of birth. The book recommends further legislative and judicial debate.

See, the president is supposed to be a “natural born citizen.” And had the Founding White Fathers only remembered to explain what that means (“not black”), then Obama couldn’t be president!

However, no definition of “natural born citizen” – which is only used in the presidential requirement clause – was provided anywhere in the Constitution, and to this day the precise meaning of the term is still being debated.

There are no records of any definitive discussion on the matter during the Constitutional Convention. That – coupled with the absence of definitive Supreme Court rulings and a wide array of opinions throughout the centuries – has only further confused the question of what “natural born” actually means.

Still, the authors found that according to the framers of the Constitution as well as Supreme Court rulings, Obama does not fit the eligibility requirements.

Take that, blacky. [World Net Daily]

Well, they’re half right, in that the conclusion is the complete opposite of the truth. Obama actually is eligible regardless of the place of his birth, as the child of an American citizen (yes, just one) is automatically a native born citizen wherever he or she is born.

Now to check the WND comments, and hopefully keep my sanity intact.

The 14th Amendment was added to prevent arguments like WND’s. If you’re born in U.S. or its territories, you’re a citizen. That’s why Barry Goldwater — born in Arizona before it was a state — could be prez. Or McCain — born in Panama under U.S. jurisdiction.

For people who claim to love the “plain language of the Constitution”, these folks sure love to parse the meaning of obscure phrases. And to engage in paleo-telepathy — reading the minds of the long dead founders.

Oh, here’s a good joke: I bet this means people born by c-section can’t be president! Now I make this completely original point, confident that 2/3 of the comments so far aren’t saying that exact thing.

Iowa GOP Supports Amendment To Strip Obama’s Citizenship Because He Won The Nobel Peace Prize

At its state convention in Des Moines last month, the Iowa GOP adopted a new party platform that includes the repeal of mandatory minimum wage laws, the elimination of the U.S. Department of Education, and even clarification on the definition of manure. Out of the “387 enumerated planks and principles,” Newsweek’s Jerry Adler found the most “startling” section of the platform calls for “the reintroduction and ratification of the original 13th Amendment.”

You know, there are tons of legitimate complaints that can be levied against the Obama Administration: their cowardice in the fact of anyone challenging them; their willingness to ignore the details of the sweeping legislation in favor of proclaiming victory; the insular coasting of Obama-Superstar that’s passed for a public-facing message strategy; the transparent broken campaign promises when it’s obvious to all that he’s just trying to middle-manage the New American Corporate Empire and keep it afloat; their complete unwillingness to publicly challenge a barely-cohesive Democratic Congressional majority to make substantial and much-needed improvement to the actual experience of being an American.

As long as politics is a football game and the birthers and the Tea Partiers and the mouth-breathing corn-syrup slobs and the detritus of the failed consumer experience are on the other side, Obama will have no problem at all. But more to the point: he’ll never be challenged, because even the most slackjawed of Kos commenters will look at Palin’s Patsies and go, “oh shit, no way.” When push comes to shove, their nervous systems are still able to be pushed, and the fear of life sucking utterly will overwhelm the disgust of missed opportunities and befuddlement.

Obama doesn’t need a re-election strategy; he just needs the base, whose minds and souls were turned to dank jelly by Dubya, to descend further and further.

The Little Rock July 29, 2010 at 10:16 am

They actually cite the Dred Scott decision to cast doubt on his eligibility. WOW. So we all probably know about the Dred Scott Decision. You know…people of African descent not being eligible for citizenship. OK. I see where you are going with this nutbags. The 14th Amendment wasn’t part of the original (read: second) American Constitution, so it doesn’t matter when defining “natural born”. What else do you have nutters? Minor v. Happersett??? Virginia Minor was a woman that actually had the gall to attempt to do a man’s duty. You know…vote. The Supreme Court said, “hahahaha, we’re sorry no. You can’t vote.” According to this ole timey Supreme Court ruling, women aren’t natural born either. So you see, Obamer can’t be the President not only because he is Kenyan, but also because he is a woman. At least we can use this defense against a Palin presidency…

Certainly there’s no precedent for this sort of thing!

“Andrew Jackson was born to Presbyterian Scotch-Irish colonists Andrew and Elizabeth Hutchinson Jackson, on March 15, 1767, approximately two years after they had emigrated from Ireland”

Well, I guess that was before the revolution.

“James Buchanan, Jr., was born in a log cabin in Cove Gap, near Harrisburg (now James Buchanan Birthplace State Park), Franklin County, Pennsylvania, on April 23, 1791, to James Buchanan, Sr. (1761–1833), and Elizabeth Speer (1767–1833). His parents were both of Scotch-Irish descent, the father having emigrated from northern Ireland in 1783″

Well, ok, but still!

(Chester A. Arthur) “At the time of the birth of the future president, Arthur’s father was an Irish subject of the United Kingdom of Scottish descent, who naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 1843″

(Woodrow Wilson) “His mother was born in Carlisle, England, the daughter of Rev. Dr. Thomas Woodrow, born in Paisley, Scotland and Marion Williamson from Glasgow.”

(Hoover) “Herbert’s mother, Hulda (Minthorn) Hoover, was born in Norwich, Ontario, Canada of English and Irish (probably Scots-Irish) descent”

Oh.

I will stand up the the American kids born by C-section. “Natural Born” as stated in the constitution clearly means born without artificial flavors or preservatives. Duh.

Fake Thomas Jefferson July 29, 2010 at 2:13 pm

I believe it is clear—and I assumed that, by now, it would be a settled question!—that when we Framed this Union with the Constitution, we with purpose excluded those Members of the national Body, who by Birth and Constitution are unfit to serve as President. Quote:

“The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years…”

It’s clearly spelled out. Let this wasteful debate cease forthwith, and let Congrefs immediately remove Nancy Pelosi, lest by accident of Fate she become President upon the death or incapacity of the President and Vice President. Move ye swiftly, lest the dangerous influence of Woman in the highest Office forever sunder this great Union we have achieved!

For a little snark break, who was the academic that looked at US Presidential genealogy records and concluded that five (that’s 5, birthers) of them probably or definitely had Subsaharan African ancestors? I believe Lincoln was included in that group.

Yes, agreed. I recall all the History lessons in grade school about our 1st president: President Sitting Bull & his successor President Cochise. Natural born citizens indeed. Only!!

I heard one argument that “Natural Born Citizen” was put in the Constitution to prevent another Caesar. People back then had trouble wrapping their minds around non-natural birth. It’s as good a argument as any other about the NBC question.

[re=628065]The Little Rock[/re]: I think the Naturalization Act of 1870 over turned Dread Scott.[re=628466]libwakman[/re]: They had very liberal immigrations laws back then. Anybody could just sail over here and call themselves American.

This is just absolutely brilliant writing. Cunting hilarious.

They don’t even know what the law says. It requires only ONE parent to be a natural-born citizen. That would be his mother.

But a half-breed Muslin? Now he’s a ‘half-breed fashion designer’s draping cloth’? ROTFLMAO!!

Hilarious!

Clearly, you suck at right-wing nutty birther magical thinking. Ya see, they don’t think McCain is eligible either. But since Joe Biden had to know about Obama’s usurperiness, he can’t succeed Obama when that black guy is dragged out of the White House and hanged from the nearest convenient tree. Therefore, McCain would be next in line if he wasn’t a secret, scary Panamanian, but he is. So the line of succession goes to…drumroll…Sarah Palin.. who will stand beneath the tree the Usurpy One is swinging from to take the oath of office, all sparkly and bright eyed like an evil Disney character (Snow White with an Uzi).

See, wasn’t that simple?
