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 Bahamian cruise. Within twenty-four hours, she had the document and was flying home for her planned vacation. Out of desperation and necessity, the family spent the extra money to obtain the needed birth certificate; how much more should our Commander In Chief take the necessary steps to obtain his own.
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 Americans must comply with 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 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 WorldNetDailyExclusive.
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 in Chief may cite 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 in 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 Americans 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.
