Patrick Wood (Upcoming Guest On Acceleration Radio) Asks, Constitutional Crisis Looming?

The inflam­ma­tory issue of Bar­rack Obama’s birth cer­tifi­cate is gath­ering steam across America: Was he or was he not born in the United States?

If he was born any­where other than on Amer­ican soil, then his pres­i­dency is inval­i­dated. Why? The Con­sti­tu­tion of the United States point­edly requires that the Pres­i­dent be a nat­ural born citizen.

Defusing the issue would be easy: Obama could simply pro­vide a legit­i­mate and com­plete birth cer­tifi­cate proving his birth loca­tion. Not only has he stub­bornly refused to do so, but he has spent sev­eral mil­lion dol­lars in legal fees to thwart var­ious cit­izen law­suits that demand proper disclosure.

Obama has also legally cloaked records that could poten­tially sup­port or dis­credit his cit­i­zen­ship claims, like school records and tran­scripts from Har­vard and Occi­dental Col­lege. Some inves­ti­ga­tors sus­pect that he may have applied for admis­sion as a for­eign student.

The pack of critics (called “birthers” by Obama defenders) is get­ting larger by the day. Lou Dobbs and Rush Lim­baugh are both talking about it. WorldNet Daily devoted an entire issue of Whistle­Blower Mag­a­zine to it. Lawyers have filed dozens of law­suits. Mil­i­tary offi­cers are chal­lenging poten­tially illegal orders to be deployed to combat zones over­seas. Left-wing orga­ni­za­tions are being drawn into vocal oppo­si­tion, thus stir­ring the pot even more.

As the battle heats up, the attacks on the “birthers” by their detrac­tors (mostly left-wing) is taking on a familiar pat­tern. The former are being being ruth­lessly ridiculed, scorned and mar­gin­al­ized as the “lunatic fringe.”

So far, nei­ther side has blinked. Nei­ther is willing to give an inch. The battle lines have been drawn.

Herein lies the problem.

Bar­rack Obama’s approval rating is already drop­ping like a rock and the public is more sharply polar­ized than ever.

After just six months in office, Obama has fared worse than even Jimmy Carter in 1976, whose out­ra­geous acts had enraged the Amer­ican public like none before him. Carter had no chance of serving a second term.
Many Democ­rats have already pulled away from Obama, fearing that he is a) too far to the left or b) pur­suing a nar­cis­sistic agenda that leaves them out of the picture.
Obama should have balked during his cam­paign when sup­porters and his cap­tive media com­pared him to the Mes­siah. Every­body hailed Jesus Christ when he appeared in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, but less than three days later, they demanded his execution.
Per­haps Obama was con­vinced by his han­dlers that nobody would care about this nat­ural born cit­izen thing. Or, per­haps they con­vinced him that he could get away with it even if they did care.
What Obama may not know is that these same han­dlers might soon offer him up as a cheap sac­ri­fice in order to force a Con­sti­tu­tional crisis.
Why? Because it would almost cer­tainly require a Con­sti­tu­tional Con­ven­tion to straighten out the mess. Every Pres­i­den­tial act would be inval­i­dated. Civil unrest would be ram­pant. Chaos would reign, and chaos is the desired envi­ron­ment for the powers behind Obama.
With every passing day that the birth issue is not resolved in Obama’s favor, the odds will per­sis­tently increase that a Con­sti­tu­tional crisis will soon unfold, and that America will be polar­ized like never before in history.
