The Imposter at the Rostrum?

Written by 

On Tuesday, January 25, 2011, a man by the name of Barack Hussein Obama took his place at the rostrum before the two houses of Congress to deliver his State of the Union address. He was greeted by the members with smiles and great courtesy even though a growing number of Americans believe that he is not eligible to be President — an imposter.

 

Here is a man with the greatest power on Earth, who can order Air Force One to take him anywhere on the planet, who has spent the last two years transforming America — yet he will not reveal his birth certificate. What is he hiding? And why is the Congress of the United States willing to sit and listen to this man who may very well be the cleverest imposter who ever existed?

We know of men who have pretended to be medical doctors and surgeons, who have actually performed the duties of a physician before they were uncovered as frauds. Men such as that usually go to jail. Americans are a very trusting people, and we tend to believe what people tell us about themselves.

Yet, we have a Constitution that describes the qualifications of a President. Article II, Section I states: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Well, how do we know for sure that a candidate for the office of President was born in the United States? By his birth certificate. But no one in Congress or on the Supreme Court has ever seen Barack Obama’s original long-form birth certificate. Should he not have made it public when he sought the nomination for the presidency? Why was it not demanded of him by the proper authorities? Would his birth certificate actually reveal that he is not eligible to be President?

Is not the office of President important enough to require irrefutable proof of eligibility on the part of any candidate for that position of enormous power? He holds the fate of 300 million people in his hands. What if it is later determined that Obama is indeed an imposter — what then?

All of us, at some point in our lives, have to show our birth certificates to proper authorities, whether it’s to obtain a passport, or to be hired to a sensitive position in government or private industry, or to prove our citizenship. So why is Obama exempted from providing proof of his citizenship by birth? He is no ordinary American applying for a passport. He is the Commander in Chief of our armed forces, he lives in our presidential mansion known as the White House, and he had the entire Congress of the United States listening to his every word last night, even though he refuses to provide them with his birth certificate.

As a master imposter, he is also a master hypnotist. Otherwise, how could he convince everyone in Congress that he is the genuine article? What he said in his State of the Union address is irrelevant compared to the fact that he stood before the lawmakers of America and refused to prove that he is a citizen of the United States by birth. There should be no doubt in the minds of Americans that their President was indeed born in the United States and is eligible to hold that office. And as long as Obama refuses to show us his birth certificate, those doubts will persist.

Meanwhile, Hawaii's Governor, Neil Abercrombie, announced that he would dig up Obama’s Hawaiian long-form birth certificate in order to finally put an end to speculation about his eligibility to be President. However, it turns out the greatly frustrated Governor was unable to find any documentation. Apparently, there are no papers that name either the Hawaiian hospital in which Obama was born or the physician who attended his birth. And if such a doctor existed, would he not by now have identified himself?

Most likely, the eligibility issue will come up in the election of 2012. Obama will be forced to produce documentation that he is indeed a natural born citizen of the United States. And if he cannot come up with such documentation, then what?

As for his address, it was lackluster and boring, full of the usual clichés for which he is famous. He spoke a lot about education, proposing to replace No Child Left Behind with a Race to the Top. Thus, he expects the government to play an even bigger role in education, when the proper role for the federal government in education is no role at all. Education is not mentioned in the Constitution.

As for the country’s enormous debt, he expressed no sense of urgency about reducing it, offering only some minor spending cuts. He said nothing about inflation, which most people are concerned about. But he intends to oppose any attempts to repeal his healthcare program, even though the last thing our debt-ridden country needs is another costly entitlement program. He offered to help Republicans improve the program, not repeal it.

He’s obviously not in favor of smaller government. In fact, he advocated more government “investments” in clean energy technology, electric cars, more roads and bridges, more high-speed rail lines. He is still on the road to socialism, but pledged to work with Republicans in promoting “reform.” He will defend his agenda, but work with Republicans, he said. To what end? To prevent them from dismantling his socialist program. He doesn’t want smaller government — he wants more efficient big government.

He sounded remarkably like a clever, intelligent imposter trying to act like a legitimate President. But the speech was hollow. He is an excellent actor — which is what an imposter has to be. But a man without a birth certificate ought not to be President.
