Born in Kenya. BHO, Jr. counters with "Yabut they weren't married, so I'm the son a of a single American citizen woman, and therefore constitutionally eligible?"

Well, maybe. Citizen for sure, under the law at the time, (and today as well if had been born under current law). But, Natural Born Citizen within the meaning and intent of the Art. II clause in the Constitution?

Congress can define who is eligible to be naturalized, as that is the only power over citizenship granted to them, they cannot redefine "natural born citizen", for purposes of the Constitution, anymore than they can define "speech", "religion", or "arms".
