Ineligible is just that
For some strange reason Wesley Pruden is convinced that nothing can be done even if it were established that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
In his Pruden on Politics column of Sept. 6, 2010, he said that nothing could be done because hie is president now. In his April 18 column, he said if someone could prove the president was born in Kenya, it’s too late to do anything about it, and that the Supreme Court follows the election returns.
Question: What happened to Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 of the Constitution, which requires a “natural born citizen”?
If Mr. Obama is not a natural born citizen he is not and was not eligible to serve as president, and anything he has directed or signed is of no consequence. The Supreme Court would not have anything to do with it because his removal from office would not be by impeachment since he is not president, although it would probably review any legislation caused by it.
Unfortunately, the Constitution has been treated with a wink and a nod for too long, and the country suffers because of it. Brad Peaseley Richmond, Virginia
