On a day filled with celebration and retrospection, namely the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, a well-known and respected public-interest attorney, who appears regularly on top television and radio news and talk shows, said on Monday that he refuses to congratulate Obama, and his legal organization released a shockingly harsh statement to explain that refusal.
Larry Klayman, the founder of the successful organization Judicial Watch and a former candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida — and the only lawyer ever to have obtained a court ruling that a sitting president had committed a crime (which occurred during the Clinton administration) — issued a biting statement on Inauguration Day.
In his statement Klayman declared his refusal “to congratulate Barack Hussein Obama with regard to his inauguration celebration” and his having been illegally sworn in [Sunday] and [Monday] by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
Mr. Klayman said he does not and cannot recognize Obama as President of the United States.
And Klayman is not alone in his suspicions: the majority of Republicans — 64 percent — believe Obama is hiding something about himself while 33 percent of independents and even 14 percent of Democrats agree, New Jersey’s Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind survey revealed.
