If the Facts Dont Support the Theory, Destroy the Facts Comment left by: CreativeOgre: While digging my way through the Internet last night, I came across the following paper, written by SARAH P. HERLIHY. Its title
AMENDING THE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN REQUIREMENT: GLOBALIZATION AS THE IMPETUS AND THE OBSTACLE
caught my eye, and had to read it
I had to ask myself, what would drive any American to want to change a clause in a document that is the very foundation of our government? So, I kept digging, and found that SARAH P. HERLIHY is employed by Kirkland & Ellis LLP http://www.kirkland.com
Noting that this law firm is based in Chicago, the light bulb was shining a little brighter . Upon looking at the firm, and the partners, I found that Bruce I. Ettelson, P.C., is Member of finance committees of U.S. Senators Barack Obama and Richard Durbin.

Levin, P.C., another partner who, in December 2002 was presented the Illinois Venture Capital Associations lifetime achievement award for service to the private equity/venture capital community presented by Sen. Barack Obama
So it sure looks like Obamas people have looked into the matter of Natural born as far back as early 2006. What is even more disturbing is that it would appear that they are following the thought of : If the facts do not support the theory, Destroy the facts!
None of Hawaii’s vital records have been released, hence no evidence.
That which makes evident or manifest; that which furnishes, or tends to furnish, proof; any mode of proof; the ground of belief or judgement;
"Place of Birth....Honolulu, Hawaii"
Of course a native citizen is, indeed, an American citizen.
However they avoid the term ‘natural’ born.
If ‘native and ‘natural mean the same thing — to them — then why not just use the term Natural Born: as used in the constitution?
Yes, we all understand that some believe the two terms are the same.
The question was when did Obama say he was native born?
Well, fight the smears said it.
Hope that helps.
Hawaii's director of public health has officially confirmed that the state's records show him being born in Hawaii.
That his step father may have believed Indonesia claimed him as a citizen when he was 8 years old in no way disqualifies him from the presidency.
Do you really not get it or are your questions all part of the plan to throw everyone off?
We understand that tactic well.
Because "native-born" and "natural born" are synonymous.
If native and natural mean the same thing to them then why not just use the term Natural Born: as used in the constitution?
Because the courts have also used "native born" and "natural born" synonymously.
Then the question deserves an answer, huh?
What does the constitution say about dual citizenship?
Prove it as a lie then.
Why does federal law use the term "citizens at birth" and some Supreme Court decisions use the same term while others use "citizen by birt"? It's all irrelevant, the Constitution identifes two specific forms of citizenship - natural born and naturalized. If you are not one then you are the other. "Native born" or "natural born", "citizen at birth" or "citizen by birth", they're all different terms for the same thing.
OMG!! You really really don’t get it!!
God help us.
Here’s something I found...
You are ill-informed on the birther issue. Barack Obama, by his own admission, was a British subject at birth. He has never denied having a Kenyan father, who himself was a British subject as a Kenyan native. This is easly established under the British Nationality Act of 1948. He is therefore disqualified to run for the office of the President, because the office is not available to subjects of other governments. The issue is very simple, and very obvious. Obama himself admitted that he wasnt a natural born citizen when he debated Alan Keyes in 2004.
Oh Lord! That takes me back to those unblurred pictures of precious doing her thing at the oh, so boring Duke LAX party.
Had the details of those pictures been made public even Barry Sanders and Cash Michaels would be hard pressed to say "something happened" to baby girl.
What is it that I'm not supposed to be getting?
OMG!! Once again are you seriously STILL missing the point or do you really not get that being potus is not simply a matter of birthplace but also citizenship???
Do you not get the difference??
Could be he was born in a mud hut somewhere in Africa with a witch doctor shaking bones over him as a midwife delivered him...No hospital...no doctor...no records...
...no evidence supporting your scenario...
Honestly, can this stuff get any stupider? Kapi’olani didn't deliver babies? That would be the Kapi’olani where the Nordyke twins this idiotic fantasy keeps trumpeting were born. The one identified on the Nordyke twin birth certificates as “Kapi’olani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital.” I'm sure a hospital with that name wouldn't deliver babies. After all, what do babies have to do with maternity and gynecological issues?
Even if you try and ressurect that tired old Queen's Hospital non-story, they delivered babies, too.
This is exactly why the birther movement is perceived as an embarrassment to rational thought. It just makes stuff up, no matter how insane, and keeps parroting it long after it has been discredited.
Obama's Kenyan citizenship lapsed when he turned 21 and did not give up his U.S. citizenship so problem solved.
