Now, back to the business of our Constitution & US citizenship, in which I have had some spirited debates on recently, I bring to you a snippet from Edwin Meese III’s 2005 release of the Heritage Guide to the Constitution. I came across this while researching back through Article I in my effort to better understand the commerce clause & the general welfare clause.

It was like fate that the word ‘dual’ jumped out at me while fanning to get to the page I was headed to.

page 111:

If you kept fanning to page 189, you'd see that the Heritage Guide has an entire section entitled "Presidential Eligibility." Wherein it states, on page 190:

"Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President."

It says absolutely nothing about a dual citizenship bar. The definition of "natural born citizen" as provided by the Heritage Guide explicitly confirms that Obama is a natural born citizen.
