    Yes ncguy71, I'm speaking about presidential election last month. If the WRAL did there homework before posting this piece they would've found out the same info. I did. I knew about it as early as 8pm last night.

    tenderheart1788, if Obama is indeed eligible, then he should have no problem, whatsoever, providing documentation that proves he is. Right?

    Obama voters should not have a problem with this. It should take no more than a few days for him to provide the proof, if he's indeed eligible.

    "So until Obama can prove that both of his parents were both U.S. born citizens the elec. college can't meet. If it's proven that he's unfit for office of Potus than sorry no Obama in the White House."

    You say the kindest things.

    Here's just a small part is what is said.

    (Washington, DC – 12/08/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed
    suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to
    serve as President of the United States today filed with the U.S. Supreme Court an
    Application for an Injunction to Stay the Electoral Votes on December 15, 2008 and
    prohibit V.P. Richard B. Cheney, the House of Representatives and the Senate counting
    any votes for Obama until Obama Proves he is “Qualified” to be President.

    So until Obama can prove that both of his parents were both U.S. born citizens the elec. college can't meet. If it's proven that he's unfit for office of Potus than sorry no Obama in the White House.
