Once again, a few folks have been stirring the pot regarding the President’s birth certificate, or supposed lack thereof.
I am aware that non-US born citizens cannot be President. I myself, being born in Venezuela, always felt obliged to discourage all overtures to make a run for Oval Office. Not that there were any. But that’s not the point.
The point is, this harangue over where President Obama entered the world is bad for our country. Disagree on policy? Sure. That’s our right. But pushing this particularly cynical plow, in the hopes of undermining the current administration is unprincipled.
Our law places a certain emphasis on where American Presidents need to be born. Decency demands just as high a standard regarding how Americans citizens need to behave.
