Larry Klayman, former Sen. candidate & Judicial Watch founder, goes birther in Florida

KlaymanLarry Klayman, the conservative legal activist from Miami who ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 2004, has filed a lawsuit against the state over Barack Obama's eligibiliy to be on the general election ballot. Klayman wants to require Secretary of State Ken Detzner confirm the eligibility of Obama before placing his name on the ballot.

From Klayman's release: "Neither Mr. Obama, nor the Democratic Party of Florida, nor any other group has confirmed that Mr. Obama is a "natural born citizen" since his father was a British subject born in Kenya and not a citizen of the United States. Therefore, according to Klayman, Mr. Obama is ineligible for the Office of the President of the United States until the state can confirm his eligibility."

"The requirement for natural born citizenship, which is found in the U.S. Constitution, was intended to prevent foreign influences from 'influencing' an American president. These 'influences' have regrettably been witnessed by the American people during President Obama's term in office.  It is clear the Founding Fathers intended to avoid such a situation, where an American president seems to frequently sympathize with and take actions benefitting foreign interests," said Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch who spent $2.9-million on his 2004 primary campaign and won 1 percent of the vote.

Larry is looking for another sucker. Send him money.


Guess what...Mitt Romeny's father was born in Mexico, idiot.


The evidence is on Larry's side, but the judiciary, political parties and media are NOT. However, polls show 40% of people smell a rat (in the White House). You can fool all of the people SOME of the time and SOME of the people all of the time ....

Brad, Its Romney, and none of the Romneys who fled to Mexico were allowed to become Mexican citizens. Nor was George (his dad), Who was fairly well vetted in 1967 when he ran for POTUS nomination. Mexican govt seems to still carry the relatives that stayed in Mexico as US citizens.

Sleuth... You can fool ALL the people SOME of the time, and SOME of the people ALL the time...but you can't fool ALL the people ALL the time. A.Lincoln.

McCain, Obama, Jindal, Rubio, and Romney all have something in common. They all can never be considered natural born. This is nothing against Rinos, Communists, Indians, Cubans, or Mexicans. This is about our great old Constitution. A2 S1 p5. John Jay was so smart when he wrote to George Washington about making sure no foreign influence got into out top spot. We let John Jay down! I hope we correct that in 2012. Sorry John, America has become rather stupid.

While it is true, Barack Obama has referred to himself as a "native-born" Citizen; he has stated, in writing, he was qualified to take the oath of office of the Presidency of the United States at the DNC convention in 2008.

The Mexican government would not have allowed a hoard of white anglos coming down from the north into their territory to proselytizer against the predominant religion of the country: Roman Catholic, nor buy and own Mexican territory WITHOUT the Romneys being Mexican citizens.

Think about it.

Apparently it IS true you can fool some of the the people some of the time, as witness this ridiculous claim and false assertion that Obama is not a natural born citizen. Steve K is correct - at least HE is showing how stupid Americans have become, by believing this horse hockey nonsense. Grasping at straws any way they can, just to hoist the desperate canard that Obama is "the Other", not to be trusted, my goodness, he's "Not An American". What a waste of political capital to even give one sentence over to this delusion, and if Klayman wants to spend more of his money, more proof, that yes, some people Are Stupid!


If Larry wins, then Joe Biden becomes President!


He spent 2:9 million and got 1% of votes. Just goes to show some people have more than they need and become idiots with dumb idea of self worth and no humbleness, such a waste of humanity. There is so much suffering in this world and this fool is a birther. Someone needs to legally take all of his money to bring him back to reality.
Just my opinion, and I don't think I am wrong.
A President that let China disassemble one of US top spy planes and hold Americans air force personnel for more than a month.
A President who deregulated bank where they granted investor of a return of their money, which in turn they bet that the borrowers would default. Won on both ends. Republicans big screwing of the 99% of real Americans not those traitors.
A President that started to war without thinking how to pay for it.
A President who sent 13 billion dollars in cash on pallets to Iraq that just disappeared in thin air (99% of tax dollars):
A President that turned his back on victims of Katrina.
A President who was on watch during 911 when he was warned by previous Administration of this treat.

And this idiot is worried about a man who want all Americans to have health care.
A man who got Bin Laden.
A man who have fought for rights of the 99% workers who really produce goods, other than the loafers who want to make their money by stealing from the 99%.

I got one response, GO SCREW YOURSELF.
Vote for the same thing that got us in this mess because obviously the revolution by the people can not be avoided.


Actually, the founders wanted to avoid "foreigners" from the Presidency, not "foreign influence."

Thomas Jefferson was a French citizen when he served as President, and indeed was very partial to France, but he was not a foreigner according to his generation because he was born in the United States (that is, what became the United States).


Larry Klayman is looking better all the time. He's got a good case against "Obama" in FL, with a good plaintiff.

Since he started, a major investigation has verified that the "Obama" "birth certificate" is forged and his draft registration is bogus. Bill Ayers' postman testified that Ayers' wife said "Obama" was a foreign student. Obama's publisher put out a fancy brochure saying he was "Kenyan" born. This wasn't changed until 2007, when "Obama" decided to run for President. If there's sucker born every minute, it is those who financed his run, voted for and enabled him.
