Skip to comments.Where Was President Obama Really Born? Can This Issue Finally Be Settled?

Over twenty-five percent of Americans, say that President Obama's 49th birthday is not this week. A poll called where were you really born that day? summoned this up into question.
The persistent theory boosted heavily by conservative activists that Obama was not born in Hawaii, but that he was born outside of the country of the U.S. The CNN/Opinion research Corp. survey said 27 percent of responsive people doubt that Obama's father is telling the truth or that his birth certificate is real. 42% have no doubts, 29% said he probably was born in Hawaii, but couldn't give a sure answer. Democrats backed Obama more than Republicans. 14 percent of Republicans said he was NOT born in the United States. This issue began over Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign and has become a topic of interest with Rush Limbaugh and the so called 'Birther' movement. Hawaii has already released a certified copy of Obama's birth certificate. The 1961 archives of two local newspapers in Hawaii also show his birth announcements! Snopes.com has also checked into it.
When the time is right they'll prove beyond a shadow of a doubt where he was born, and bury the eligibility issue behind that smokescreen.
I don’t think he was born. /s
I’m beginning to believe he was born in hell. Only a spawn of satan could try to destroy the greatest nation in the history of the world.
Lol - wishful thinking! ;o)
Everybody knows hussein dunham was born in Kenya. Grandma Sarah witnessed the birth along with other relatives.
"Im beginning to believe he was born in hell. Only a spawn of satan could try to destroy the greatest nation in the history of the world.You get my vote for the post of the day.
Are we the only people that even realize this? It seems so freakin' simple to me, I can't understand why anyone is falling for the smoke (no pun intended).
“Snopes has checked into it”.
Oh, well - that certainly settles it then.
The notion that qualification as a natural born citizen requires that both parents be citizens is very much a minority opinion. Very few jurists, legal scholars, or politicians believe this to be true. If this belief were widely held, a challenge to Obama would have certainly been made before he was sworn in as President.
My opinion is this: Obama was born in Hawaii, as he has said and as the Governor of Hawaii has confirmed. The reason that he has spent over $2 million to destroy or conceal records of his early life, including his birth certificate is that he was later adopted by his Indonesian step-father and became an Indonesian citizen. When he was past the age of 18, he either obtained or renewed his Indonesian passport in order to use that document to gain entrance as a foreign student to either Occidental or Columbia, or both. By taking this action, he unknowingly renounced his original citizenship and even though he has certainly has his citizenship reinstated, he no longer can claim to be a natural born citizen, but rather he is a naturalized citizen.
However, even if my theory were proven to be 100% true, Obama would still be the legitimate President of the United States. His election was certified by the Vice President and by the Congress and he was sworn in by the Chief Justice of the United States. The only ways that he can be removed from office involuntarily before the end of his term is through the impeachment process or incapacitating illness.
The Birther Brigades will disagree with my opinion and they are quite welcome to hold their own. But, they are not entitled to insist that their opinion is correct and they are not entitled to demand that I accept their view. They will toss any number of silly insults my way for disagreeing with them.
I hope they know that Snopes is a husband-and-wife outfit that they run out of their homes. It isn't some investigative outfit or a newspaper-affiliated resource.
Thank you. I am honored!!
Chris Matthews said Dunham was born in Indonesia, if that helps any.
Do your homework or STFU! I have posted this to you MANY TIMES and you are too stupid to check the facts or can’t read! The British Nationality Act of 1948 granted BRITISH CITIZENSHIP to and child born of a BRITISH MALE CITIZEN!
Bambi was BOTH BRITISH and AMERICAN at birth. So, cut the BS and stop wasting our time, Obama TROLL!!
Sorry Jim! This guy really PO’s me off!
This is hilarious.
They’ve begun to fight this.
And all of them will start with these stale talking points.
WRONG -- 'You' cannot impeach someone who was never LEGALLY elected.
