Disloyalty To Obama
Michael O'Brien is reporting that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) warned Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) of "disloyalty" to President Obama if she should seek to distance herself from the White House in her re-election campaign.

Cleaver, who's seen as the likely next leader of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), cautioned the centrist senator of distancing herself from Obama, the way many endangered incumbents had done in the closing weeks of the 2012 election.

"Any attempt to extricate herself from him will be an act of disloyalty," Cleaver told McClatchy in a piece profiling McCaskill's re-election campaign. "She will not do that at all."

McCaskill is one of the centrist Democrats who managed victory in the 2006 election thanks to the headwinds favoring her party in that cycle.

Since winning, though, there have been signs that the Show-Me State has trended Republican. Rep. Roy Blunt (R) easily secured victory in the state's Senate race this fall, for instance. And McCaskill might feel justified in running from Obama in 2012, since it was one of the few swing states Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) managed to hold onto the 2008 presidential election, while Obama was sweeping to victory elsewhere.

McCaskill has sided with the president and majority Democrats on a series of key votes.  She voted for healthcare reform, Wall Street reform and the stimulus bill.

Cleaver needn't worry.  McCaskill was one of the very first to support Obama.  Way back in 2004, McCaskill was trying everything she could to prepare the way for the ineligible Barack Obama, clearly demonstratng that the Democratic Party has known all along that Obama was ineligible to serve as POTUS.

On February 28, 2008, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a bill to the Senate for consideration.  That bill was known as S. 2678: Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen Act.  The bill was co-sponsored by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK).

Bill S. 2678 attempted to change article II, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States with reference to the requirements of being a "natural born citizen" and hence; the entitlement to run for President of the United States.  This bill met the same fate that similar attempts to change the Constitution have in the past.  Attempts such as The Natural Born Citizen Act were known to have failed and the text scrubbed from the internet, with only a shadow-cached copy left, that only the most curious public can find.

 

Sen. McCaskill, her co-sponsors, fellow colleagues and legal counsel, contend that the Constitution is ambiguous in article II, section 1 and requires clarification.  But does it?  According to the framers and such drafters as John Bingham, we find the definition to be quite clear:

     

I find no fault with the introductory clause [S 61 Bill], which is simply declaratory of what is written in the Constitution, that every human being born within the jurisdiction of the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty is, in the language of your Constitution itself, a natural born citizen…

 

 – John Bingham in the United States House on March 9, 1866

      

From the days of James Madison to the present, the courts have held that the amendment process be justifiable in accordance with its constitutionality and not self-serving or political.  But is that what happened here?  Again, we must go to the record.

 

WWithin only five short weeks after Senate Bill 2678 faded from the floor, we find Sen. Claire McCaskill back again, making another attempt with Senate Resolution 511.  On April 10, 2008, she introduced a secondary proposal in the form of a non-binding resolution, recognizing John McCain as a "natural born citizen" in defiance of the Constitution.  Curiously, it contained the same identical co-sponsors, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

 

ABCNews.com reported:

      

"With questions -- however serious -- about whether Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is eligible to run for president since he was born outside U.S. borders on an American Naval base, Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. today introduced a non-binding resolution expressing the sense of the U.S. Senate that McCain qualifies as a "natural born Citizen," as specified in the Constitution and eligible for the highest office in the land.

 

Co-sponsors include Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, and Barack Obama, D-Illinois; Leahy said he anticipates it will pass unanimously."

      

One has to wonder -- what dire urgency could there possibly have been in persisting with trying to legislate a candidate into being a "natural born citizen?"  Certainly providing a birth certificate and reading the Constitution would be more than sufficient.  Why did these candidates and their wishful nominees go to such lengths in the Senate when obviously, they had more pressing matters to attend to?  And why were there two Senators co-sponsoring such an issue, twice, who were in direct competition with John McCain in the 2008 election?
