No time for Constitution ~ By Joseph Farah

Joseph FarahBy Joseph Farah Posted: August 15, 2009 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Barack Obama's mouthpiece, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, says his boss doesn't have any time to waste on questions about his constitutional eligibility for the highest office in the land. He's got too many important things to do – like taking away your right to choose the doctor of your choice and seek the kind of medical care you and your doctor believe is appropriate, fighting the phantom problem of "global warming," compiling databases on dissenters, funding ACORN with your taxpayer dollars, conducting intrusive Census interrogations about the most intimate details of your life, devising the next trillion-dollar stimulus program, etc. While he may not have the time or inclination to simply release the birth certificate that would either confirm or repudiate his claim to constitutional eligibility, he does, however, have the money to spend fighting more than a dozen lawsuits demanding he live up to the spirit of his oath of office. His legal tab is up to at least $1.4 million, according to the latest tally by WND. Obama's strategy is simple – stonewall.
Now watch the red-hot eligibility story on DVD: "The Question of Eligibility: Is Barack Obama's presidency constitutionally legitimate?" He and his minions in government and media ridicule those Americans who expect him to do the right thing – or, alternatively, expect Congress and the Supreme Court and the press to force him to do it. It's amazing how effective this strategy has been. When it didn't work to label "birthers" as kooky, they started labeling the people who place the Constitution over a president as "racists." Nobody wants to be called "kooky" or "racist." So very few in politics or the media have dared to demand Obama live up to his pledge to run the most open and transparent administration in American history. But the questions and doubts are not subsiding. In fact, the more Obama insists he will never release the one document that would reveal the truth about his parentage, his birthplace, the timing of his birth and other precise details of his origins recorded by independent eyewitnesses, the more the questions and doubts grow. The protesters at congressional town halls are not just angry about plans to socialize medicine, destroy the free-enterprise system, use taxpayer money to commit election fraud and to saddle out great-grandchildren with massive debt; they are also asking the most sensitive question of all: "Where's the birth certificate?" It's a question that goes right to heart of Obama's legitimacy as president. And that's why it hurts. Disturbing new questions keep arising as Obama's carefully crafted life story continues to show cracks – not just with regard to where he was born, but to whom and when. [READ COMPLETE COLUMN]
