Tim Pawlenty is in the early stages of running for President, and has formed the Pawlenty for President Exploratory Committee.
On his Exploratory Committee web site, Pawlenty has a page for people to enter their comments to finish the following sentence: The Next President Should…
Here’s what I wrote on Pawlenty’s site:
The Next President Should… Support and Defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law!
Supporting and defending the Constitution and the Rule of Law
makes one a “Constitutional Republican”, not a “birther”.
When one combines the legal requirements of…
1) Article II Section 1 of the United States Constitution
2) Section 3 of the 20th Amendment to the United States Constitution
3) The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986:
All employees, citizens and noncitizens, hired after November 6, 1986 and working in the United States must complete a Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
… then one sees that Obama and Biden are legally required to produce hard copy documentation of not only their eligibility to work in the United states but also their eligibility to hold the office of President.
And Congress has the legal responsibility to ensure that the President and Vice President have qualified.
A Constitutional Republican expects those who swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law to ACTUALLY DO SO.
I will not support a primary candidate who does not support and defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
Is the President above the law? Obama was legally required to submit an I-9 form with acceptable hard copy documentation. Did he do so? Shouldn’t you care whether or not he did so? Don’t let the Alinsky media intimidate you. Stand up for the Constitution and the Rule of Law, or don’t even think of running for President!
