Glenn Beck fans doubt his take on eligibility: A flashback from Sep 2010

The issue of Obama's birth certificate is key to the multitude of questions that have been raised about whether he is eligible to occupy the Oval Office. The nation's founders, in the Constitution, imposed a special requirement for the person who is president, that of being a "natural born citizen."

Now, is this total irony?! I was perusing through WND's archive of eligibility stories.  In a flashback from September of 2010, we find out that some of Glenn Beck's biggest fans did not go along with Glenn's assessment of the Obama eligibility issue. Oh, did I mention that Rush Limbaugh has just recently faced criticism from his fan base for the same reason?

There has to be a reason why Donald Trump was bold enough to discuss the eligibility issue and seemed to stay popular, if not actually grow in popularity, while Beck and Limbaugh received guff from their own fans for NOT discussing the story! Could that be a clue that the American people actually want to see the proof of Obama's eligibility? You have to wonder. I'm just sayin'...

WASHINGTON – Glenn Beck may pooh-pooh the issue of Barack Obama's presidential eligibility, but some of his most loyal fans are emphatic in demanding, "Where's the Birth Certificate?"

On Beck's own website, a thread started today shows those concerned about Obama's unwillingness to document that he is a "natural-born" citizen, as the Constitution requires, running 9-to-1 over those who believe it's a nonissue.

At 2:11 p.m., a reader posted a comment on his website, The Blaze, about Democratic House Majority Whip James Clyburn's warning that, if the GOP takes control of Congress in January, it will issue subpoenas regarding Obama's eligibility.

The original post included a video clip of Beck and guest Dinesh D'Souza dismissing the eligibility issue.

But, within hours, more than 100 comments had been posted, and, according to WND's tally, 45 of those comments questioned Obama's eligibility, and only five supported Beck's position.

The remaining posts commented on Clyburn or other issues.
