‘Birther in chief’ invited to dinner by Harry Reid (WND, Bob Unruh)
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, responsible for putting a charge in races where a seat in the U.S. Senate is at stake for the party, has invited Orly Taitz, the California lawyer responsible for a long list of legal and other challenges to Barack Obama’s eligibility, to one of its events that will feature the president.
The invitation prompted Taitz to post a copy on her website under the headline “You want what Mr. Reid????????????”
“I have no fear of anything. I will ask him [about eligibility] on camera,” Taitz told WND today.
The e-mailed invitation read: “Please join members of the New York House and Senate congressional delegation along with Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader, Chris Van Hollen, Chair, DCCC; Robert Menendez, Chair, DSCC with President Barack Obama.”
It’s set for Sept. 22 at the Roosevelt Hotel on at 45 East 45th Street at Madison Ave. in New York. Oh yes, 4:30 p.m.
And, of course, it’s a fundraising event.
Taitz, who still has court cases pending on appeal, has launched several of the high-profile cases challenging Obama’s eligibility to even occupy the Oval Office, including cases that have been heard in Florida, in Washington and in California. Her California case remains on appeal, and others are in various stages of the appeal process.
They all revolve around the controversy that stems from the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, which states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
A number of challenges and lawsuits have been based on the constitutional requirement, some alleging Obama does not qualify because he was not born in Hawaii in 1961 as he claims. Others say he fails to qualify because he was a dual citizen of the U.S. and the United Kingdom when he was born, and the framers of the Constitution specifically excluded dual citizens from eligibility.
The e-mail stated it was from Sen. Harry Reid and included a DSCC.org address.
Which finally leads to the Limerick:
The end of Obama is in our sights
Did Harry Reid really invite Orly Taitz?
A late lunch with Harry,
And Nancy and Barry.
This is getting interesting: “Dinner with fights”.
