Our President-elect, Barack H. Obama, has resigned his seat in the United States Senate less than two weeks after his election, the earliest any President-elect has done such an action. In the two weeks since his election, Obama has maintained a somewhat low profile, except for a 60 Minutes interview, a trip to the White House to check out the new “digs”, and meetings to set up his Administration. He even took the future First Lady to dinner at their favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago for a three hour quiet dinner. And all of this while the number of lawsuits and challenges to his eligibility to be elected the President continue to mount.
Dr. Alan Keyes has become a party to a California lawsuit seeking to have the Secretary of State require verification of Obama’s birth records. Philip Berg’s case is pending an answer from the Obama lawyers before the U.S. Supreme Court. There are lawsuits pending against several other Secretary of States with similar issues as expressed in Dr. Keyes’ complaint.

The answer to all of this seems so simple: Barack Obama should simply release the verifiable original document that the State of Hawaii recently acknowledged that they had on file. The time, the moment, is now, to put this matter to rest. There are far too many issues facing this Nation to have the air of uncertainty about Obama’s Constitutional eligibility remain as we move forward. Yes, 52% of the electorate voted for Obama, but if he cannot meet the Constitutional requirements, he cannot be permitted to take the Oath of Office– the oath that says he will “uphold the Constitution”.
