Earth to Pearce: Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen

From NM - Republican mastermind Karl Rove believes President Barack Obama was born in the United States, is a citizen, and is a Christian. He said so when he was in Las Cruces several weeks ago. At a Sept. 30 event in Los Lunas, a woman asked Pearce whether he is willing to support the subpoenaing of Obama’s birth certificate. She also asked whether Pearce believes Obama “is in fact a Kenyan-born, Indonesian Muslim.” Pearce said Obama “raised the most significant questions himself” when he said he had traveled to Pakistan – at a time when, Pearce claimed, it was not legal to go there with a U.S. passport.Just like George W. Bush won the 2000 election, Barack Obama won the 2008 election. He meets the constitutional requirements to be president, and he is president. End of story. Pearce is intelligent. I’m assuming, or at least hoping, that he knows Obama is a citizen. So I have to wonder if he was pandering to people whose votes he was trying to win with his statement in Los Lunas. If so, he’s irresponsibly playing with fire. If, on the other hand, Pearce actually believes what he said in Los Lunas, well, that’s an entirely different reason to be concerned about his candidacy for Congress. Read Commentary
