Extremely well written, good job.
However, I simply do not see how Obama is going to be on the Democrat ticket.
The reason? A number of States have already passed new laws, that are now on their books, requiring every candidate for president to prove their natural born status.
Obama can’t do this - nothing he’s evidenced meets the legal qualification. And if you want a one-stop shopping experience about the subject, just look up Sheriff Joe.
Now, his lawyers might argue that as a sitting president, his natural born status is presumed to be valid. But - that’s not what the State laws say. They say - show it. And sitting president or not, how is it a problem if it exists?
Then there’s the problem with his admittance that his father was not an American citizen, which nixes the deal right there, no matter where he was born.
Yeah, he’ll sue - but how can he win?
And one more thing - if he goes down, Hillary is the de facto Democrat candidate. With all of this against Obama, do you really think she’ll let him slide on this issue again? Especially when all she’d have to do is beat Romney?
Her people are the ones who have pushed the birther subject all along - this in an established fact. And it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if she’s also behind the Romney campaign. Why? Because she knows she can beat him, just the way she knew she could beat McCain - and McCain and Romney know it too - they know their job is to split the conservatives out of the Republican Party, divide the votes, and lose.
So I just don’t see that it will be Obama-Romney. If anything, it will be Hillary-Romney, which Hillary will win.
Unless there’s a brokered convention.
Then it could be Hillary versus Palin.
And Palin would win.
If (as I suspect) these are red states, it won't affect the electoral vote; and Obaama may sue (especially if these states would be enough to change the outcome of the election); holding office in the meantime, as his Merry Men instigate race riots all the while, the better to pressure the opponents into giving up.
See also Odinga, his cousin, for whom he campaigned.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
