David Vitter, Jerome Corsi and Obama's Eligibility

I recently came upon a post by Dean Striker at in which the author poses a couple of questions:
  1. Why the silence within Congress on President Obama's proof of citizenship?
  2. If there is a single Congressman or Senator who cares deeply enough about the United States Constitution and the requirements that must be met before someone can lawfully run for the office of United States President, who is it and why haven't we heart from him, her or them?
We all know what they say about assumptions, so I'll refrain from repeating it here. That said, suffice it to say that Mr. Striker hadn't done his homework (at least not thoroughly) before assuming and stating publicly that no U.S. Congressman or Senator has acknowledged the constitutional crisis posed by President Obama's apparent lack of eligibility for the office of United States Chief Executive.

Louisiana GOP Senator David Vitter
, a man whom I am honored to say I worked for and helped reelect, has done and is doing all he can to continue to bring this issue to light.

I have assembled a list below of stories and references from around the web documenting Senator Vitter's efforts to protect and defend the United States Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.

Stories regarding Sen. Vitter's questioning of Obama's eligibility:

Jerome CorsiSenator Vitter also spoke at a Tea Party rally last October in which the other big-name speaker appearing at the event was none other than Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of the book entitled: Where's the Birth Certificate?: The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.

Corsi's speech at the "Remember in November" Tea Party event in Mandeville, Louisiana was largely centered around Obama's lack of eligibility to be President of the United States. Senator Vitter spoke at the very same rally just minutes before Dr. Corsi delivered the keynote address. Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) also spoke at the event, but I do not remember his speech as I was too busy working the crowd recruiting volunteers for the Vitter Campaign.

Below is a photograph of myself, Sen. Vitter, Peter and Pamela Egan. It was taken at an awards banquet for a local Republican organization. The banquet was held at the Quail Farm in Abita Springs, Louisiana. This photo was taken almost a year before my employment with the 2011 David Vitter for U.S. Senate campaign.

I worked as the Grassroots Coordinator for Southeast Louisiana for Vitter's 2010 reelection bid in which Vitter defeated Democrat Charlie Melancon by a score of 57-38. A field of more than 10 minor candidates split the other 5% of the vote.

A number of so-called experts and analysts had projected the race to be very close and initially considered the GOP-held seat "vulnerable". From my vantage point - working on the ground and interacting with voters every day (all day, seven days a week) - I had a pretty good idea the contest would end in a blowout with my candidate falling on the right end of the lopsided score.

I actually took a temporary leave-of-absence from my business (much of which was on autopilot anyway) to work on the campaign. I did this because I truly believe, as evidenced by this post and the stories referenced herein, that America has a much better chance of surviving the assault unleashed by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and of course President Barack Obama on the American Constitution, economy and military/defense infrastructure if David Vitter continues to serve as a voice of reason in the United States Senate. I can only think of two others off the top of my head, and one of them was not a member of the Senate when I decided to dedicate myself to helping to ensure Vitter's reelection. The other two Senators are Jim DeMint (R-SC) and Rand Paul (R-KY), respectively. The House generally speaking has a higher percentage of ideologically-pure conservatives than does the Senate, and conservatives in the House are traditionally less likely to compromise with Democrats for the sake of unity, "bipartisanship" or compromise (which usually involves the left getting most or all of what it wants).

Anyway, as for the second of Dean's two-part second question about why he hadn't yet been made aware of this fact, the reality is that while the URLs listed above come from well-known, "mainstream" news sources, while these entities obviously reported on Sen. Vitter's defense of the Constitution, they most likely buried the stories so deep within their sites that the only way anyone would ever find them is if they were searching Google using queries specific to David Vitter and Obama's eligibility/birth certificate.

More about Dr. Jerry Corsi (from Amazon):
"Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers The Obama Nation and Unfit for Command. Along with serving as WND's senior staff reporter, Corsi is a senior managing director at Gilford Securities."
More about Dr. Corsi's New Book:
"Over the course of more than three years of research, Jerome Corsi assembles the evidence that Barack Obama is constitutionally ineligible for the office of the presidency. As a New York Times bestselling author, Harvard graduate, and investigative journalist, Corsi exposes in detail key issues with Obama's eligibility, including the fact the President has spent millions of dollars in legal fees to avoid providing the American people with something as simple as a long-form birth certificate. The eligibility issue has major ramifications for every American, and through Corsi's in-depth research, a clear, concise, and compelling case is made for a return to Founding Father principles and transparent, constitutional government, starting from the top down."
Anyway, if anyone reading this is interested in learning more about the book and/or buying it, just click the image below.
