Now, apparently, Ms. Taitz’s petition is one of thousands, of which the Supreme Court will select just 100 cases to review. It is most likely her case will not make the cut.
Of course, the comments on the Huffington Post article I linked above are rather raucous, as are most discussions concerning Obama’s citizenship.
A small minority are arguing there is some technicality that prevents Obama from legally becoming president, and the rest are arguing there isn’t. But I think they are missing the point.
Technicalities don’t matter; the majority’s opinions ultimately triumph over all forms of paper document. It’s the reasoning behind the technicality that is important.
President Obama did not grow up in the United States during his formative years as a child. He lived in a foreign country from the age of 6 to the age of 10, and attended foreign schools.
The intent of citizenship should be meant for adults who grew up in the United States, or were raised abroad by citizens with great love of country.
Does Obama love the United States? Or does he love power? I’ll leave it to the reader to decide.
