If only we could have had the lamestream media feel the same way towards him.
US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
“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.”
That’s it. That’s all there is to it as far as the eligibility requirements to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.
No candidate background checks.
No spousal background check.
No birth certificate checks.
No verification of anything.
I guess the founding fathers figured the future populace would be bright enough to ensure that anyone with an untoward history would not make it all the way to the top so they didn’t spell it out to a ‘T’ in the Constitution. Too bad they didn’t, dammit.

Even though there are quite a few citizens in this country that have their doubts about the “natural born” part when it comes to Obama there isn’t a soul with the ability to look into this issue that has the sack….to look into it! Lawsuits, petitions and marches on the White House lawn notwithstanding Obama and his family will be occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave come January 2009 and that is just the way it is gonna be.
Now anyone that has paid the slightest bit of attention to the recent presidential election probably knows that Mr. Obama did everything in his power to hide from the people of this country virtually every detail of his life. From tightly sealed school and birth certificate records to denials of associations with just about every person in his past Obama was adamant that very few people would get to learn anything about him. Even his wife Michelle got into the act and went so far as to attempt to seal her college thesis until after the election!
( If you read it you would probably figure out why she wanted to hide it and perhaps even gain a little perspective on Mr. Obama’s real agenda as president )
Let’s contrast all of this secrecy surrounding Mr. Obama (to borrow from the junk bond rated New York Times’ habit of always referring to President Bush as “Mr. Bush” I will convey upon Obama the same amount of respect) with the anal exam he plans on giving to prospective employees of his administration.
Want to join the Obama/Obiden team? Great! Bend over, spread em and give a healthy cough, 63 times!
This questionnaire is just chock full of queries that millions of us here in America would have loved to have asked Mr. Obama while he was campaigning for president. Such as:
-If you or your spouse have performed any work for, received any payments from and/or made any payment to any foreign government, business, non profit organization or individual please specify the circumstances. (I wonder if this would include campaign contributions from foreigners?)
-List and provide a copy of each book, article, column or publication including posts on blogs and websites you have authored, individually or with others and list all aliases used to communicate on the internet. (publications would certainly include all scholarly papers written by Obama)
-Provide a list of all speeches including text and or recordings. (I wonder just what kind of speech Obama gave at this going away dinner for Rashid Khalidi, a former spokesman for the terrorist organization, the Palestine Liberation Organization
yet another Columbia University connection to Obama)
-Specify any connection or affiliation with any banking, financial, mortgage or insurance company that is part of the current federal bailout including Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. (You mean like Obama campaign advisers Jim Johnson and Franklin Rains and potential Attorney General Jaime Gorelick? These three crooks that should be residing in jail right now?)
-Provide names and details of any individuals or organizations you or your spouse were associated with that might present a conflict of interest with federal office…or cause embarrassment. (this one is just too easy)
-Provide records of any real estate held in combination with others. (would the side yard of Obama’s property that Rezko’s wife bought count here? Everybody knows what went down in this transaction between Obama and Rezko but his memory is conveniently fuzzy when it comes to the details. Amazing considering the clarity of his recall of years past whilst penning his two million dollar books)
-Do you or any family members own a gun? If so provide complete ownership and registration information including if the registration has ever lapsed. Describe how and by whom this gun is used and if said usage has resulted in any people or property damage. (we know Obama really hates guns and would like to take away the Second Amendment the minute he thought he could get away with it)
-List any social group URLs such as MySpace and Facebook. (yikes, I bet those two places are having some major deletions going on right now. Too bad for some folks that there is a way to go back in time and see what used to be there but is no longer…including Mr. Obama’s stuff)
and finally the catch all end all question…
-Have you had any association with any person, group or business venture that could be used “however unfairly” to impugn or attack your character and qualifications for government service.
The irony of this last one is too rich to skip over considering what little we do know about Mr. Obama and his past associations with certain types of people. These relationships should have easily disqualified Obama from the presidency considering he would not be able to get basic clearance as an enlisted man in the U.S. military!
So there we have it in a nutshell. If you would like to work for the government under the Obama regime you best come walking into the exam room buck naked because they are going to be checking out every nook and cranny. While I certainly have no desire to see Obama in his birthday suit I’m certain there is at least half a country full of people that would have liked to have seen this kind of vetting process implemented with him long before he became an Illinois state senator let alone the next commander-in-chief. The other half of the country? They could care less, they are just thrilled to have their half black fella ready to “rule.”
