Frank Fahrenkope, Co-Chair, Commission on Presidential Debates Makes False Statement on Fox News about U.S. Constitution Article II Section 1 – Presidential Constitutional Eligibility Requirements
Mr. Fahrenkope, Co-Chair of the Commission on Presidential Debates, states the U.S. Constitution says a President must be a “native born Citizen” when it fact the U.S. Constitution says the President must be a “natural born Citizen”. Is being cute by half? Does he not know the difference? Does he understand ‘set and subset’ logic? Being native born is a necessary but not sufficient part of the other, i.e., being a natural born Citizen. Is he deliberately misleading the American people as the New York State Election Commission is doing?
See the video of the false/incorrect statement here. If you wish to fast forward to the spot where his misstates what the U.S. Constitution states regarding what type of Citizen per the U.S. Constitution is eligible to serve as the President, go to about 1:20 into the video: http://video.foxnews.com/v/1221582002001/presidential-debates-a
Being a “native born Citizen” is NOT legally identically equal to being a “natural born Citizen”. There are five types of Citizenship mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. It should be noted that natural born Citizens are the largest subset by far of the various types of U.S. Citizens.
Read this essay on basic logic: Of Trees and Plants and Basic Logic: Trees are plants but not all plants are trees. “natural born Citizens (NBC)” are indeed “native born Citizens” and “Citizens at birth (CAB)” but not all “native born Citizens” and “Citizens at birth (CAB)” are “natural born Citizens (NBC)”!!
Our constitutional republic is being destroyed by those who are charged with protecting it! Once again the debate commission is looking the other way on the constitutional requirements for the office of the presidency. This is a national disgrace! Mr. Fahrenkope should be ashamed of himself for misquoting the U.S. Constitution on national television. Or did he do it on purpose to deliberately misinform the American electorate in order to prep the public with misinformation to try to give Obama an easier pass in the debate qualification phase of the election process, … once again?

Adjectives mean something. Barack Obama may be a ‘Citizen of the United States’. But he is not a ‘natural born Citizen of the United States’ and does not meet the constitutional standards as to who can be the President and Commander in Chief of our military: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/03/obama-maybe-citizen-of-united-states.html
The natural born Citizen clause of the U.S. Constitution is a national security issue and placed in the U.S. Constitution by the nation’s founders and the Constitution’s framers for national security reasons. We are now faced with the “enemy within” out to destroy our constitutional republic because the natural born Citizen clause of our U.S. Constitution was ignored in the 2008 election and it appears it is going to be usurped again in the coming 2012 election. Misinformation and disinformation is being spewed out at the highest levels. Wake up Congress! Wake up People! This must be stopped!
