Protester disrupts House over Obama’s birthplace

A protester who says President Obama wasn’t born in the USA was arrested for disrupting the reading of the Constitution in the House chamber.

The woman yelled out “except Obama” when Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., read the clause in the Constitution that states only a “natural born citizen” may be president of the United States. People who contend Obama was born outside of the USA are known in the blogosphere as “birthers.” Obama, the White House and the state of Hawaii have repeatedly weighed in on this subject. Obama was, indeed, born in Hawaii, and there is a birth certificate in the Aloha State to prove it. Lawmakers of both parties are taking turns reading the Constitution, something the new GOP majority vowed it would do.
