I finally got my "Barack is a Citizen" form letter from Congress. Does this end the Birth Cert. issue for you?
Thank you for writing regarding President Barack Obama's qualifications to be President. I appreciate hearing from you and I apologize for the delay in my response.
Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution specifies the qualifications for this executive office. It states that no person except for a natural born American citizen is eligible to run for President of the United States. Also, the candidate must be at least thirty-five years of age and have resided in the United States for at least fourteen years.
President Obama meets these constitutional requirements. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961. According to the Fourteenth Amendment, all persons born in the United States are considered citizens of the United States. Under these criteria, President Obama, a 47-year old U.S. citizen, who has resided in the United States for longer than fourteen years, is eligible to be President.
Once again, thank you for writing. If you have any further questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. staff at (202) 224-3841.
United States Senator
I think putting the cc to Greta, O'Reilly, Hannity and Fox&Friends may have been a little over the top. I don't expect a response because it was a petition and those are not treated as correspondence. Though...I will keep you posted.
Andrea...that is really funny! And don't you think it was funny that my friend's letter to her senator in IL went to Obama himself (our letters were automatically addressed to the appropriate senators by our zip codes...she was psyched...until it came up addressed to Senator Barack Obama). Wonder what her response will say, "Because my mother told me and I remember"...it will probably say, "Where do you live? I'd like to have someone explain this to you in person" :o
