Shortly after noon on this bright yet cold day, Barack Hussein Obama was sworn as the Nation’s 44th President. In an Inaugural address that showcased his oratory skills, there did not resonate that one true historical line or phrase like FDR or John Kennedy, but moreso an overall message of our role and responsibility within the country and the world.
And so, even in the light of a Constitutional crisis, if this is to be our moment, if this new President is to be labelled as our first Black American President, no longer will we accept the cries of the media, the bloggers, those who blindly accept the President as the “end all” for our time, touting those of us who question, who challenge, who hold our leaders accountible, being called racist or militant. Now, the lines of color should be forever put away, and this man shall and will be held to the same standard of accountability as the 43 men who have preceded him. Albeit, if our media cannot do their job, a new a growing source will emerge to hold him to task.
If we cannot challenge in the open forum our leaders, then we have failed as a democracy, our Republic on unsolid footing. If we are to blindly accept the words of our leaders as the ultimate and fnal say, are we not any better than the people of North Korea or China?
The President has now challenged our personal responsibility, and as such, it is our responsibility to be a part of the voice of the people, the voice that is the true mark of the Republic that our forefathers set forth.

Even as the Co-President Elect Obama sets a record for “face time” with the media since the election (is it actually possible for them to cover him any more than they did during the election, and he schedules another press conference for tomorrow, it seems that the Obama citizenship quandry has finally surfaced in the mainstream media.
For the first time, FOXNews Brett Baier reported that the Supreme Court will take up discussion on the citizenship cases that have made it to the Supreme Court. Baier stated that while many view Obama as the world’s choice, based on polls done during the election worldwide, the question of his citizenship is being addressed in numerous lawsuits.
The next few days will be interesting to see how the media coverage proceeds from this point.
Summary of the Citizenship Quandry Facts:
Heard the rumors about Barack Obama’s citizenship?
These are the facts:
The Constitution requires the president to be a natural born citizen.
Obama’s grandmother said she there when Barack was born in Kenya.
Obama refuses to release his original birth certificate.
Instead of a birth certificate, Obama’s campaign posted a certification given to those born abroad.
Experts have called even that document an “obvious forgery.”
Obama attended school in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, when only Indonesian citizens were permitted to attend.
Obama’s school records list his father as Lolo Soetoro and Obama’s citizenship as Indonesian.
Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when it was illegal to enter as a U.S. citizen.
Sixteen lawsuits in 12 states and two cases before the Supreme Court now challenge Obama’s citizenship.
Fact: Our Constitution still matters.
