    Well, with any luck the Supreme Court will decide that public statements given by Hawaiian state officials (including the director of the Department of Health) is verification enough under Article IV, Section 1.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Nothing? Maybe they verify after a win? Doesn't seem right to me.

    Here is the Federal (FEC) Guide for candidates it deals primarily with funding laws http://fec.gov/pdf/candgui.pdf

    On The State Side this shows the qualifications for all officesQualifications for Office

    And now that I looked it all up again, in my Texas State Statement of Candidacy I did attest to this statement:

    "Before me, the undersigned authority, on this day personally appeared (name) _________________________________________, who being by me here and now duly sworn, upon oath says: “I, (name)________________________________________, of _____________________________ County, Texas, being a candidate for the office of __________________________________________________ ____, swear that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the State of Texas. I am a citizen of the United States eligible to hold such office under the Constitution and laws of this state. I have not been finally convicted of a felony for which I have not been pardoned or had my full rights of citizenship restored by other official action. I have not been determined by a final judgment of a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote. I am aware of the nepotism law, Chapter 573, Government Code. I further swear that the foregoing statements included in my application are in all things true and correct.” " http://www.sos.state.tx.us/elections/forms/a2-8.pdf

    But never had to show any proof, just sign the form and gather the signatures to become a write-in candidate

    You are a complete moron if you think the NSA, CIA, FBI, DoD and every other major national defense organization that handles classified information has not verified Obama's background.

    Re: Supremes facing eligibility challenge to Obama, again

    When our reading of the letter of the law supports our cause, we're all about the rule of law and all the little technicalities that strengthen our position without changing a damn thing about the reality of the situation.

    When our reading of the letter of the law opposes our cause, we're all about the spirit of the law and all the little things this or that important person has said that strengthen our position without changing a damn thing about the reality of the situation.

    Why is the crux of the matter so often completely removed from the reality of the situation?

    Obama's citizenship has been verified.

    It staggers me how many people still don't know this.

    I felt the same way about the nonsense that Bush was AWOL even though he had an honorable discharge from the military
