‘Natural-born’ requirement called ‘stupidest provision’

Also ‘discriminates, outdated, undemocratic and assumes birthplace a proxy for loyalty’

An associate lawyer in a Chicago-based firm whose partner served on a finance committee for then-Sen. Barack Obama has advocated for the elimination of the U.S. Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural-born” citizen, calling the requirement “stupid” and asserting it discriminates, is outdated and undemocratic.

The paper was written in 2006 by Sarah Herlihy, just two years after Obama had won a landslide election in Illinois to the U.S. Senate. Herlihy is listed as an associate at the Chicago firm of Kirkland & Ellis. A partner in the same firm, Bruce I. Ettelson, cites his membership on the finance committees for both  Obama and Sen. Richard Durbin on the corporate website.  More from WND

  1. It isn’t stupid. I want my Presidents roots to run deep on American soil, which includes military bases (for those idiots who argue that a military base isn’t American soil, it is. It’s just like an embassy. What the Bourne movies and see what happens when Jason Bourne enters a US Embassy. That’s a fact.)

  2. Only natural born Americans prevents the European habit of embracing Kings who were born in another country. We believe in promoting from within.

    SO. Obama. Produce the birth certificate. I have to produce one for a passport… Like the one you got AFTER you traveled to Pakistan… How did you do that exactly? It was not on an American passport. You were claimed by your stepfather to be a citizen of Indonesia and a Muslim. Still got that passport?

    Or did you travel on a Kenyan passport? You were born there according to several of your relatives to your underage moma which means you were not born an American and there is no evidence you attempted to take a oath to gain American citizenship.

    Put up and or let the house of cards you have built fall.
