Hello people. I have put this story up on several political message forums and the local paper in my district to get a consensus of voter thoughts. I am a firm believer in the Constitution. I would like your comments. Georgia electors have retained Attorney and Georgia State Representative Mark Hatfield of the law firm Hatfield & Hatfield to represent them in their Georgia ballot access challenge against Barack Obama.

It seems the president is going to be contested for being placed on the ballots of every state due to his eligibility issue pertaining to if he is a natural born citizen. When a complaint is filed, by law, the Elections officer must investigate and hold a hearing. This is going to put pressure on the elections officials. I can't ever recall this being done to a sitting president.

Their challenge to Obama’s placement on the Georgia ballot is based upon the contention that Obama does not satisfy the "natural born Citizen" requirement of Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the United States Constitution. Obama’s father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a native of Kenya and a British subject who never became a United States citizen.

The Supreme Court was very clear in Minor v. Happersett: all children born in the country to parents who were its citizens. These are the natives or natural-born citizens.

It only becomes muddled to some when Obama partisans began posting their spin and misinformation.

Mr. Obama needs to be removed from the ballot.

How is wanting any candidate to be checked out thoroughly before he is placed on the ballot an embarrassment?
