The Libertarian Republican Reports on New Efforts By Congress to Get To The Bottom Of Obama's Eligibility

From the Libertarian Republican:

Blackburn, Campbell & Culberson now co-sponsors

by Eric Dondero

While it may be too late to revoke Barack Hussein Obama's hold on the Presidency, it is not too late to make the issue of his birth outside of the United States, most likely in Kenya, an issue for Campaign 2012.

With that in mind, a coalition of conservatives and libertarians around the Nation are pushing for the enactment of HR 1503, introduced by freshman Republican Congressman of Florida Bill Posey. The legislation would require proof of birth in the United States of America or its Territories to run for the office of the Presidency. This shall take the form of a valid hospital-issued birth certificate, and not just a receipt for such a certificate as Obama has released.

The legislation got off to a slow start. It was introduced back in March of this year. And only Rep. Bill Goodlatte (R) of Virginia, agreed to sign on as a co-sponsor. Then a few weeks ago, Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, came on board. Within the last two weeks, 5 Republican Congressmen have signed on. Besides the 3 mentioned, co-sponsors include: Reps. Marsha Blackburn (TN), John Carter (TX), John Culberson (TX), Ted Poe (TX), and Dan Burton (IN). Notably, Burton and Blackburn are considered leaders of the GOP House Caucus.

Of note, on the Senate side, the Hon. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has gone on record in support of such legislation in that body.

There are some notable Representatives who have yet to sign on, including some libertarian Republicans. It would also be nice to have a principled and honest Democrat or two as co-sponsors.

Please take a moment to contact your Representatives by email, phone or letter to urge them to support HR 1503. Just tell them it's the "Posey Bill" requiring a birth certificate for Presidential eligibility.

It may be too late to do anything about Obama's 2008 election, but not too late to make this an issue for 2012.

I haven't heard back from my wussy congressman [Linder - GA] yet.

Note: However, that this bill is not simply about a candidates place of birth, but requires all documentation necessary to determine whether they meet the qualification of "Natural Born Citizen" under Article 2, Section 1. Producing a valid birth certificate is simply one source document to be used in making this determination.

Linder (GA) - No response as to why he hasn't signed on. FYI this bill is not simply about producing a birth certificate, but rather it is about determining whether one meets the definition of Natural Born Citizen under Article II, Section 1. Producing a birth certificate and other documentation will be required as proof.

This is a repost from the LR site at Eric's request. That being said, I don't think anything is going to come of this. No one wants to touch it. The SCOTUS passed on it. I would think Obama would produce the original bona fide birth certificate to stamp out all the non-sense, but he hasn't, which leads to speculation, was he born here? If he wasn't, the joke is on us and he knows it. In fact I get the feeling that his whole presidency is a joke on us. Whereas Clinton was Elmer Gantry, Obama is the snake oil salesman.
