Millions of Americans have real questions about the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama and many have ceaselessly pursued it since Obama campaigned in 2007. After Rove called these concerned citizens a “nutty fringe group” when he gave his pronouncement on Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s remarks about (shocka!!) the BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!!, several of them wrote Rove to educate him on the facts.

No court has every held that someone born on US soil to a US mother is anything other than a US citizen. The case you cite (Minor) dealt with the question of whether a woman was entitled to the right to vote, not whether she was a “natural born citizen.” However, the court did (in a over dictum) hold “At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also.”
President Obama’s birth certificate has been made public and his birth was noted by both Honolulu newspapers the next day. These birth notices were triggered by the papers receiving copies of the documents filed with the state authorities. If Mr. Obama were born in Kenya, what an extraordinary conspiracy it was that his parents, halfway around the world in Africa, arranged to have fake documents filed by the hospital with Hawaii authorities and the local papers all so that forty-some odd years later, he would be eligible to run for president!
You can hold fast to your belief President Obama is not a US citizen, but he is thrilled you do.
You’ll excuse that I had to laugh several times when you tossed out insults like “sorry-ass” and “coward” and other childish phrases. After all, I helped raised $72 million last year for American Crossroads to spend on electing conservatives to the Senate and House, a task for which President Obama called me “an enemy of democracy.” Now, I’m helping raise $240 million to defeat Obama, elect a GOP Senate, and keep the House in Republican hands. What are you doing to carry your weight?
Don’t bother writing back. I have no need to read any of your tiny little insults and jibs.
Attorney Mario “Puzo1″ Appuzzo, an expert on the pedigree, genesis, meaning, and intent of the Constitution’s Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, had this to say about Rove’s letter:
- I have read plenty of Obot comments over the last 3 years. Read the following email response from grand Republican leader, Karl Rove. There is no doubt he is a Super Obot.
First, he does not even know that under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 the issue is whether Obama is a “natural born” Citizen, not whether he is a “Citizen” of the United States which status has been obsolete for presidential eligibility for births occurring since after 1787.
Second, you have got to love his comment that Minor dealt with whether Virginia Minor had the right to vote and not about whether she was a “natural born citizen.” That statement is about as ridiculous as a probate court, whose task it is to determine whether or not to admit a will to probate, saying that it does not matter whether the person is dead but only whether his will is valid.
Third, you have also got to love his comment that birthers advocate the theory that a grand conspiracy was formed at the time of Obama’s birth to allow baby Obama to be President some day.
Mr. Rove is a leader in the Republican Party and an Obama enabler. Can you just imagine a major party being led by such intellectual talent. Please read and enjoy.
