As my opening to this commentary, I offer this critical Internet Link to a formerly famous document which some years ago was written as an OUTLINE (not a micromanagement plan) for the conduct of a life here within what ended up to encompass the borders of all lands lying north of Mexico, south of Canada, and east and west of the shores of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
It's usually called the US Constitution (although I'm not quite sure what they're teaching
Here's the words I'm concerned with this morning, Article II, Section 1 of the aforementioned document.
"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."
Pretty straight forward stuff.
Then why does the rest of the planet discuss things like this document and numerous other things that have or haven't been released about Candidate Obamarama (can anyone say John sKerry's discharge papers?):
in news articles like this one:
Jakarta - The "little curly-haired one" is well remembered by his Indonesian teacher Israella Darmawan.
It was in 1968 when Barack Obama joined her class, and she likes the idea that he soon might become the world's most powerful person.
"We hope and pray that he will become the best US president of all time," says Darmawan.
Darmawan was Obama's teacher while he attended the Catholic St Francis of Assisi school in Jakarta's up-scale Menteng district.
Darmawan, 64, who retired last year, now only returns to her former school to tell current pupils about their famous alumnus.
She takes a faded book from a shelf, the school register dating back to 1968.
Under registration number 203 it reads in large-lettered handwriting: "Barry Soetoro."
"Barry" used to be Obama's nickname, which he used together with his stepfather's last name.
Let me offer this candid, insightful question if this is true (that Obamarama wasn't born in the US to parents of US citizenship):
Can we really afford to have an "undocumented worker" hanging around at this "Pay Level"?
(if you didn't watch the "forum" last night you'll miss half of the question...)
