The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Jan. 6, that Georgia Congressman Nathan Deal has sent a letter to the White House formally requesting a copy of Obama's birth certificate. Deal is the first Congressman to take such a step. Earlier last year, Rep. Bill Posey of Florida introduced legislation requiring future Presidents to produce birth certificates as proof of eligibility. Deal and 6 other Republican Congressmen have signed on as co-sponsors.
Deal is currently a candidate for the Republican nomination for Georgia Governor. He is often identified with the Tea Party movement, and is a relatively high scorer on pro-taxpayer and libertarian voting indexes.
Not sure how too respond to this. Congressman Deal is running for the Republican nomination in the upcoming Gubernatorial election in Georgia, I am not sure what the political motive would be, for demanding the President of the United States release his birth certificate.
I am not a member of the "birthers movement", I believe Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States of America, but I also believe he should release his birth certificate to end these rumors and theories once and for all. Congressman Deal might be looking at it as a political boost amongst Republicans or as an attempt to end the rumors once and for all, I have no idea.
I have never been apart of the "birther movement", as I have been focusing on the horrific legislative goals the Obama administration and the Democratic controlled Congress has been attempting to force down our throats, and I believe a President can be against our values, and still be a self destructive American, instead of a secret operative from Africa.
As I have called for before, let the United States Congress pass legislation demanding proof of citizenship before all Presidential elections, including sound documentation of all birth certificates of the numerous Presidential candidates, so this rumor will be ended once and for all, and it will never return, ever again. Plus, it would prevent unconstitutional candidates from running, such as the candidate for the Socialist Workers Party in 2008, who was not a naturalized American from birth.
