...whether to hear attorney Leo Donofrio's case, to require Barack Obama to provide the vault copy of his birth certificate to prove he is eligible, under the U.S. Constitution, to serve as president. That Obama refuses to do this fuels the controversy. He is spending thousands of dollars to battle the multiple law suits aimed at answering this very simple question.
Why is that? What does he have to hide? If he is indeed a natural born citizen, why has he refused to prove it? John McCain produced his birth documents and settled the question about his citizenship when they arose.
Obama has produced a certificate of live birth, which we now know merely is a statement that a live birth occurred, even if that birth was in another country. It is NOT a birth certificate. It is NOT proof of citizenship.
With inauguration in just over a month, this question needs to be resolved or it will dog his presidency every day. How can he take an oath to protect the Constitution when he refuses to provide unrefutable proof that he is qualified under It's terms to lead us?
Hell, I can put my hands on my legal birth certificate right now and show anyone who asked where I was born and when! This is not a difficult or unreasonable request, and his stonewalling on the question is foolish and dangerous.
