Obama stays on the Kansas ballot
It was yet another opportunity for comedians to make jokes about Kansas. A man from Manhattan challenged President Obama’s right to be on the ballot for president because the president is not a citizen. When Joe Montgomery took his suspicions to the all-Republican State Objections Board, it got him so much intimidation that he dropped his challenge.
Too late. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Koback says the Board takes all cases seriously, even those that don’t seem to be too … serious.
So, last Monday the Board looked at a few documents and determined that the president’s name will stay on the Kansas ballot.
Of course, this won’t slow down those who choose not to believe any amount of documentation that Barack Obama is the legally-elected president.
But I consider Kobach about as Republican as they come, and he said “that settles the issue” … and “I have no doubts now”.
Our thought for today is from Arthur Golden:
“A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory.”
