At a Feb. 25 townhall meeting with Rep. Clifford Stearns, R-Fla., in Belleview, Fla., an elderly constituent expressed concern about Obama’s natural-born citizenship status because his father was Kenyan.
When the man suggested impeaching Obama, Stearns told the crowd:
“All I can tell you is that the general consensus is that he has produced a birth certificate. The question is, is it legitimate? That’s where we stand now. I’ve seen a copy of it on television of the birth certificate. But, you know, the governor of Hawaii couldn’t get what he felt was an original of the birth certificate. He tried to do it and gave up on it. So I think what Obama’s showing is a facsimile, but I think that debate probably is not enough, shall we say, enough just to impeach him. We’re going to have an election in five or six months, so we can change the course of history by electing someone other than Obama. So that’s what elections are all about. If we started impeachment this time of year it’d be very difficult in terms of time and strength.”
