Last week, my niece, at the last minute had to fly to California from Ohio to get her legal, certified birth certificate to go on a Bahaman cruise. Within twenty-four hours, she had the document and was flying home for her planned vacation. The irony is, the lost document was easily replaced but in desperation so the family vacation could go on as planned. Obama on the other hand has not taken the time out of his busy schedule, even months prior to campaigning to get his certified copy of birth in order to fulfill the Constitutional mandate for the President of United States. If American’s must comply to the birth certificate laws in place to travel abroad, it stands to reason, that an American President also should have to comply as he gallivants across the globe promoting world peace.
Dr.Orly Taitz, the attorney for Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook was interviewed by conservative talk show host Rick Roberts. She has posted on her blog the legal injunction on behalf of Major Cook who states, “[Then] any order coming out of the presidency or his chain of command is illegal. Should I deploy, I would essentially be following an illegal [order]. If I happened to be captured by the enemy in a foreign land, I would not be privy to the Geneva Convention protections,” he said, as reported in WorldDailyNetExclusive.
Rick Roberts allowed Dr. Taitz to explain the circumstances in regard to the case and the legal precedent that has been dangerously set by the Army for revoking the deployment orders. Now, any military personnel who takes issue with serving under Barack Obama as Commander and Chief may site this precedent and potentially be excused from deployment.
It seems that the President should just show his certified, hospital generated birth certificate and clear things up easily, without causing more speculation that perhaps he is not Constitutionally able to serve as Commander and Chief. Meanwhile, MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann tonight called Cook a “jackass” and Taitz a “conwoman,” as he labeled both of them the “worst persons in the world.” He flayed the soldier as “an embarrassment to all those who have served without cowardice.” He called Dr. Taitz delusional and Major Cook a non-patriotic, pathetic “draft dodger”.
A man of Barack Obama’s obvious power should be able to produce the desired document and ease the minds of the men and women that he is sworn to serve as Leader. It seems that if all American’s are required to obtain and use their birth certificate at some point in their lives, the President of the United States should also abide by the same standard.
If Disneyland requires a certified birth certificate to get in for free on one’s birthday, doesn’t it seem logical that the sitting President should also share his document willingly with those he serves in order to free the minds of the American people who are concerned with this matter? Perhaps Disneyland should invite Barack Obama to come for free on his birthday, but remind him to bring his birth certificate.
