Obama's Eligibility Answered by SNOPES and Voters
Well it's settled. The question of Obama's eligibility to be President, that is. At least according to these two clowns, I mean Senators and REPUBLICAN Senators at that!
The first response from Sen. John Kyl R-AZ says that the urban legend debunking website SNOPES has already investigated it and it's a non issue. Excuse me? SNOPES? I didn't realize they were a congressionally approved investigative source. I for one would certainly like to see the complete sum of their research and review their investigative "methods" that brought them to that conclusion. I do hope it's their own work and more than a few referenced existing works. I've used their service before and while some things are honestly debunked, the majority of it is merely the inconclusive opinion of the creater of the site Barbara Mikkelson based on other questionable internet sources. Not actual research by a long shot.
From WND: Republican senator says Snopes settled 'eligibility'
But wait! According to another example of poor leadership and reasoning, Sen. Mel Martinez R-FL stated that it doesn't matter what the law says, the people have voted! So we've gone from being a nation of laws that protect the minorities from majority mob rule, to majority mob-rule. Has this nation lost its collective mind??
From WND: Senator: Eligibility is up to the voters
Sorry to both of you lazy incompetent Senators but that's not how it works. We have a little process called DUE DILLIGENCE and relying on SNOPES is not due dilligence. Neither is ignoring constitutional law.
Perhaps some timely calls to these Senators is in order.
Kinda turns your stomach on all counts.
