Commerce Secretary Nominee Judd Gregg's Withdrawal: What was the real reason?

Yet another withdrawal in Obama's first days:  Secretary of Commerce nominee,  Judd Gregg.  According to Pajama's Media , it may well have had something do do with Obama and the census.  I had of course thought this on my own,  as soon as I knew of the census plan.    Redrawing and realigning   districts to favor minorities and Democrats would change the shape of things for the GOP and for the country,   for many years to come.  Rather  than a bipartisan effort,  there now seems to be a Democrat versus GOP war brewing in Washington.  Is this surprising,  given what the Democrats have been enduring,  with internal and external conflicts and tangents,  throughout the last 8-25 years,  depending on whether one takes the short or long view?  Our nation has been gearing up for a major shift for a long time.   We shall have to see what comes of it;  certainly a mix of advance,  regress,  but always change.

Of course,  there is the area of the federal stimulus package itself,  which as a Republican,  Gregg said he would not be able to "support 100%".   Speaking at a press conference on Capitol Hill,  Gregg told the assembled press,  "I am a fiscal conservative,  as everybody knows, and a fairly strong one."   Fiscal ideology is in fact very different between the two parties,  and that they cannot agree about where and how much to spend in a federal stimulus,  even in this time of urgent economic crisis,  is to be expected.  But perhaps this was actually an act of hostility on Gregg's part;  a statement on the census manouver?

Sen. Gregg withdrew because (1) Obama’s chutzpah crossed the line and (2) Obama CANNOT put away his “birth certificate” issue.

1. Here’s the chutzpah: The Republicans didn’t get their act together enough to challenge Obama for not being constitutionally qualified to be President as an Article 2 “natural born citizen” so Obama’s White House steals the census from the Commerce Department against the specific instructions of the constitution itself — “actual enumeration” under Article 1.

2. Here’s the “birth certificate” issue: Since Obama’s earnest drive to convince the nation to weaken its economic strength through redistribution as well as weaken its national defense, COUPLED WITH HIS UNPRECEDENTED WHITE HOUSE TAKEOVER OF DECENNIAL CENSUS TAKING FROM THE COMMERCE DEPARTMENT, has confirmed the very threats to our Republic’s survival that the Constitution was designed to avert, it no longer is sustainable for the United States Supreme Court to refrain from exercising WHAT IS ITS ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO DEFEND THE NATION FROM UNLAWFUL USURPATION. The questions of Obama’s Kenyan birth and his father’s Kenyan/British citizenship (admitted on his own website) have been conflated by his sustained unwillingnes to supply his long form birth certificate now under seal, and compounded by his internet posting of a discredited ‘after-the-fact’ short form ‘certificate’. In the absence of these issues being acknowledged and addressed, IT IS MANIFEST THAT OBAMA REMAINS INELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. Being a 14th Amendment ‘citizen’ is not sufficient. A ‘President’ MUST BE an Article 2 ‘natural born citizen’ AS DEFINED BY THE FRAMERS’ INTENT.

Ted: Every time you come here, I get the same sense of urgency. I take it very seriously. It would appear that the Dems and GOP may indeed be headed for a show down, and a clashing of swords. I see the validity of your perspective, and your points are extremely well made and are well taken. I welcome your ideas, as a challenge to my own, and I thank you kindly for them.
