Michigan Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm on Fox News Sunday responded to host Chris Wallace’s clarification that as a Canadian, she is ineligible to run for president of the United States. Granholm came to the United States as a child of 4 years old.
Granholm’s response is indicative of the mistaken belief that because one of her parents is/was a US Citizen, she’s eligible.
This woman took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Has she even read it? From the transcript:
GRANHOLM: No, I’m totally focused this year on creating every single job I can until the last moment. December 31st at midnight is when I’ll stop. So I have no idea what I’m going to do next, but I’m not going to run for president. I can tell you that.
WALLACE: Yes, that’s true. We should point out Governor Granholm is a Canadian and cannot run for president.
GRANHOLM: I’m American. I’ve got dual citizenship.
Pointing out yet again the absolute ignorance — willful or otherwise — of our citizenry at the highest levels, of what our Founders mean when they wrote the following:
“No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President…” — U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Sec. 1, Para. 5
With this willful disregard of our founding document, is it any wonder that we have the son of a Kenyan-born British subject in the White House???
