If Obama is declared ineligible to be President due to the latest evidence of a Kenyan birth, who becomes president? The normal order of things would make Joe Biden the next president. However, since the Democratic ticket would be ruled ineligible, the results of the election would be would be invalid, or at least the certification of Obama as president would be invalid.
So the next logical question is, would that make John McCain and Sarah Palin president and Vice President? Another election would seem out of the question as the Democrats ran an ineligible candidate.
Then the next question would arise as to the legal remedies that should be taken. By all accounts, Obama has gone to great lengths to hide his records, even using an executive order. So, any legislation he has signed into law would be invalid, all executive orders and any changes brought on by Obama.
The last thing that we must consider if this Birth Certificate is found to be real, did Obama commit fraud? His actions show he is hiding something, or he would be open and honest as he promised. So would he be prosecuted for perpetuating a fraud on the American people? What of election laws he violated? Is the Democratic Party responsible for the damages?
And again, I have not subscribed to the “birther” point of view other than to admit that Obama should be more honest and open with the information and show us the “long form” birth certificate. But this is the most damning data to date and the first authentic looking documentation that proves Obama was born outside of the US.
One of the more plausible stories is his Grandmother’s account of the birth taking place in Kenya. And coupled with the story that Obama’s mother went into labor and was desperate to board a flight to Hawaii in order to have her child born in the US. In her condition, she was not allowed to board until after the birth. Then once in Hawaii, she began taking steps to cover the actual birthplace of her son, including running ads in newspapers. This new evidence seems to support this.
It may never come to this, but these are all things we need to consider. This would be an unprecedented event in the history of the United States. It also shows why we need to pass legislation to authenticate the birth of future presidents.
