James Commends Mitchell Langbert's Blog

Now here is something! I commend you, Mr. Langbert, and your reference to Rocky Mountain News.

Being in charge of all of our armed forces, you M U S T have undivided loyalty. That must be part of the reasoning about not being eligible for the office, if you are naturalized. To that end, how can duel citizenship not be an issue? I would say this no matter the candidate, no matter the political party, no matter the other nation.

Mr. Langbert:

Can this information be corroborated or is it some "urban myth" Is there some sort of legal ruling or position on this issue of duel citizenship

Mr. Langbert, your comment about obfuscation and obstructionism is dead-spot on. Keep in mind that this is a no win situation for Mr. Obama, so, if I were him, I would certainly ignore it and just hope that it does not get traction. Keep in mind, from the very onset of the campaign, Mr. Obama has been running from his past, and frankly running from himself. Yet sadly, he seems to not know it, because he has no center.

My career requires me to make decisions about situations and more importantly people. I have learned to trust my gut, and it is usually right. Now, as I have grown older, I have become convinced that solid character is the most critical component to effective leadership. Perhaps the Boy Scouts have said it best: "CHARACTER COUNTS".

Mr. Obama, who are you?

This guy is really beginning to fail the smell test. So, as these data points stack up, pardon my bending a phrase from another of his associates, but "the fleas are coming home to roost".

In spite of the fact that the Rocky Mountain News piece was just a regurgitation of some "internet journalist" who didn't do his job and wrote a story that was flatly incorrect.

Except that Obama doesn't hold dual citizenship with Kenya.

And whatever Kenyan citizenship he had was one not of volition, but of circumstance.

Think about this for a moment. Forget about Obama. Because if this would keep Obama from becoming president, it would also keep anyone else from becoming president in a similar circumstance, maybe one you would actually like to see become president. Maybe even you.

Consider this.

You were born in the United States, and by every definition and intent are a "natural born" citizen would qualify to be President of the United States once you turned 35 and had lived in the US for the past 14 years. Absolutely no doubt about it.

Everything's just fine until you're two years old.

Then some third world shithole gets its independence after being a British colony and drafts a constitution that says they consider you to be a citizen of their country, simply because your father was a citizen of that country.

And just like that, you've got dual citizenship, which as you would argue, should prevent you from qualifying to be President of the United States.

Why? What did you ever have to do with it? Nothing. Your father just happened to be a citizen of another country.

Again, stop and think about this for a moment. You're born with every chance to qualify for the office of President, and then when you're two years old, some other country robs you of that because of a piece of paper.

Should that ever be allowed to happen? Does that have anything to do with your loyalty?

I don't believe it should or does.
