The birth certificate is not the most important thing, although it would be nice to see the long form with the name of hospital and signature of the doctor. BHO’s father was a British subject at the time of BHO’s birth; he did not even have a US green card. Allowing BHO to be president is the same as deeming a hypothetical son of Osama Bin Laden and an American woman, born in the US, eligible to be president. What is missing from these requests for bc and from the proposed bills, is forcing SCOTUS to define the Constitutional term Natural Born Citizen. Congress could force SCOTUS to do that. Secretary of States or any election committees or Department of Health officials of HI are not qualified to define NBC, neither should Congress attempt it. The separation of powers clearly assigns that task to SCOTUS. SCOTUS and the lower courts so far are hell-bent not to define NBC. As Ambassador Alen Keyes puts it, they practice “dereliction of duty”. If you leave the definition to unqualified entities the problem will never be solved. It is amazing that our representatives, most of who are lawyers have not arrived to this conclusion: SCOTUS must be forced to define NBC.
