That's arguing the law instead of the facts. Two problems:
The NBC requirement was added to prevent influential foreign-born usurpers from carpet-bagging their way into the White House. E.g., the likes of Maximilian I of Mexico. Born and raised in the US is and ought to be perfectly fine.
I see, you're one of those "the Constitution is a living, breathing document" people, so the words "natural born citizen" don't really mean "natural born citizen". As you say: "Born and raised in the US is and ought to be perfectly fine."
Sorry, but I have no use for that kind of thinking. The plain meaning of words in the Constitution ought not to be misconstrued! If Obama doesn't meet the qualifications stated in the Constitution, it's not up to us to say "Oh, it's OK - he was born in the US so that's good enough." That is un-Constitutional, and a trap that conservatives should never fall into. If we don't insist on strict adherence to the plain meaning of "natural born citizen" then we give liberals the license to interpret every other part of the Constitution however they please.
ok amend the constitution then...President & vp are the only offices requiring NBC..is that too much to ask in a Nation of 300million people to find a qualified NBC for President?
