Representative NATHAN DEAL, now a Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, conducted an interesting online chat today from the RNC offices in Washington. Deal said he and several of his House colleagues are planning on writing barry a letter to request he release his birth certificate.
TOM CRAWFORD of Capitol Impact, which puts out “The Georgia Report – the leading daily information source on issues and developments from Georgia State Government” asked Deal:
Do you believe that Barack Obama is a native-born American citizen who is eligible to serve as president? I am asking because your comments on this issue have been a little ambiguous. I would appreciate your clearing this up.
I am joining several of my colleagues in the House in writing a letter to the President asking that he release a copy of his birth certificate so we can have an answer to this question.
Note the question – whether barry is a native-born American citizen. He has already admitted he is a native-born citizen with dual citizenship: US and British. The question is whether he is a natural-born citizen.
Don’t know Rep Deal or his colleagues or when the idea came about. There was nothing about it on his website.
*From MR GALLOWAY :
This is a new position for Deal. Back in August, my AJC colleague Aaron Gould Sheinin asked much the same question. This was the response he received from Deal campaign spokesman Harris Blackwood:
“He began receiving letters and e-mails about this long before the president took office. He has maintained in response to each one that he believes the president was born in the state of Hawaii two years after it became a state, is an American citizen and therefore is fully qualified to be president of the United States.”
