However, during the campaign, Obama signed two documents in which he swears (or affirms) that he is eligible for the office of the President of The United States, one from the Commonwealth of Virginia, and another from the State of Arizona.
On the candidacy form for the Commonwealth of Virginia, date stamped, December 13, 2007, Obama made the following statement:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that all of the information in this Nomination Paper is true, that as to these and all other qualifications, I am qualified to hold the office that I seek, having fulfilled the United States constitutional requirements for holding said office. I further swear (or affirm) that I have fulfilled Arizona’s statutory requirement for placing my name on its Presidential Preference Election ballot.”
On the Candidate Nomination Paper form for the State of Arizona, date stamped, December 13, 2007, Obama made the following statement:
“I am a natural born citizen of the United States, am at least thirty-five years of age, and have been a resident within the United States for at least fourteen years.”
Obama can’t run away from these documents. No wonder he is fighting the release of his bona fides so ferociously.
