So I Got to Wonderin': Why the Birther-Gate Debate Continues... | blonde sagacity


ALa makes a pretty good argument that the left continues to let Birthgate go on because it suits their needs. Yeah, I wish he’d just show the certificate so we can get on with it.

But then I got to thinking, who’s in charge of checking? I mean, we have to produce every form of identification to get into school, and there’s a person who’s in charge of checking it. Passport? Birth certificate. Want a driver’s license? Produce a birth certificate. Run for President? Sign right up!

Seriously: Who’s in charge of checking this kind of thing out? The rules in the Constitution are pretty specific:

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.

But it doesn’t lay down the rules for the Office of The Guy Who Checks to See if The Presidential Candidate Meets These Criteria. So whose job is that?

Just wonderin’, ‘cause I’m curious.
