CNN did it again. The Communist Non-News Network has galvanized their mindless liberal cult followers with a juicy story of political incorrectness featuring a Republican Representative.
On March 13th CNN posted a story on legislation introduced by Rep. Bill Posey requiring future Presidential candidates to produce a legal birth certificate in order to be eligible to run. Rep. Posey of Florida introduced the legislation because the U.S. Constitution requires that an individual running for President be a natural born citizen of the United States. Even CNN’s story points out that Mr. Obama only put forth certified copy of his birth certificate, not the full legal vaulted version.
In predictable fashion, bored, whiney Dems lined up for pages in the story’s subsequent comment section to spew nasty accusations, engage in their usual name-calling and employ their favorite forms of logic…denigration and mocking. The typical worn out “nanny, nanny, boo boo. We won, get over it” drivel. The liberal ignorance on parade in CNN’s comment section this time centers on something a rational person would consider reasonable…if you’re going to be President of this great nation, it would be good if you are indeed an American.
But then most ignorant liberals haven’t bothered to read the U.S. Constitution. So let me help you Dems out…Section 1, Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution contains the clause “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.”
Requiring a legal birth certificate satisfies that 2 of the 3 qualifiers mentioned in this clause are met. Not ONE Democrat whiner could pose a single legitimate reason why requiring a legal birth certificate is a bad idea. Why? Because there isn’t one! On the contrary, such documentation would go a long way in future elections to eliminate contentions between the parties. But rather than recognize the practicality of legislation requiring proper documentation of the Constitution’s criteria, whiners take umbrage that the rascally Republicans are picking on their anointed Messiah. “sore losers”…“Posey should be fired”… “he’s questioning the legitimacy of the President”…and my personal favorite “he’s a racist bigot who can’t stand the idea of a black man running the country”. PUH LEASE!! I long for the day that something original & intelligent comes out of a Democrat’s mouth. I fear I will be waiting a very long time.
One additional observation regarding liberal stupidity…just because a pregnant woman is a U.S. citizen does NOT mean her baby born anywhere else on the planet is automatically a U.S. citizen. It doesn’t work that way. There are exceptions to babies born on foreign soil, as in the case of John McCain who was born while his parent was serving abroad with the U.S. military. But generally speaking when a baby is born anywhere, the infant is a citizen of the country where he is birthed. Why do you think so many pregnant Mexican women scurry across our border, even despite agonizing labor pains? How telling that countless illegal aliens know more about US citizenship than our own residents.
SIGH. Ignorance truly is bliss, I suppose.
p.s. Would someone please read Posey’s bill and tell me where all this indignation is coming from?
