Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) is asked if she would release her own birth certificate if she becomes a candidate for the Oval Office. She says yes, but then says the issue of Obama’s [natural-born status] birth certificate is the least important issue facing our country today. Of course she is most incorrect, but I will say this, in her postion of a reformer of America’s woeful fiscal situation, unemployment and the economy, she SHOULD continue to beat the drum about spending, while others force the solving of who Barack Obama actually is – is he natural-born? If the U.S. Constitution demands it, Congress must as well. What she should have said is this:
Since we do not know if Barack Obama is natural-born, and we must know, it is a critical issue, but since we are two years out and still do not know who he is, for now I must work to kick-start jobs and the economy, while other try to get the Courts to hear the vital cases of Obama’s eligibility that have come before them. Once our economy is humming, I will be working for just that.
