A registered independent voter and professional filmmaker by the name of Molotov Mitchell has put together an 11-minute video that summarizes a brewing controversy about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President. A lifelong Democrat named Philip Berg is suing Obama to force him to prove that he satisfies the Constitution’s minimum eligibility requirements for the highest office in the land.
Here’s the relevant citation from Article II:
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; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
Mitchell’s video frames the dispute and asks Berg to explain the situation. As you watch it, focus on one key question: if Barack Obama can instantly defeat Berg’s lawsuit by handing the judge his original Hawaiian birth certificate, why doesn’t he do so?
If Barack Obama is a natural born U.S. citizen, why is he acting like he can’t prove it? What is he hiding?
