Bill Posey's Seat Labeled Vulnerable

The National Republican Congressional Committee has added Rep. Bill Posey to their list of vulnerable incumbents.

A GOP official said simply, "better safe than sorry," mostly because Posey is a freshman.

Posey has received national attention for questioning President Barack Obama's citizenship and introducing a bill requiring "a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate." The bill is redundant. The Constitution makes clear only the Founding Fathers did not have to naturalized citizens, in order to serve as President.

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Side note: Posey has not answered Stephen Colbert's challenge and provide proof he is not part gator.
