Yeah, it’s pretty dumb. Seeing as he was born in Hawaii, he’s a Natural Born Citizen.
If there’s any proof otherwise... lets see it.
You got proof of that?
According to factcheck, quote, “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdoms dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948.
Factcheck continues: “That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children.
Factcheck continues: “Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.” End quote.
Thus, this is a direct admission that Barack Obama was a British citizen “at birth”.
Since Obama had dual citizenship “at birth,” and therefore split loyalties “at birth,” he is not a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America. A “natural born citizen” would not owe allegiance to any foreign sovereign “at birth” if and only if both parents were, themselves citizens of the United States of America at the time of the child’s birth!
The Framers of the Unites States Constitution carefully chose the words “natural born” and those words CANNOT BE IGNORED. Those words can not mean the same as “citizen” in the 14th Amendment.
The status referred to in Article 2, Section 1, “natural born citizen”, pertains to the status of the person’s citizenship “at birth”.
Born in Hawaii? . . . DOES NOT MATTER! Because Obama was, “at birth”, a British citizen, it is completely irrelevant whether Obama was born in Hawaii or abroad.
Either way, he is not eligible to be President.
Sadly, that is one of the most disappointing posts you’ve ever made at FR, that I’ve read! If a Russian child is born in Hawaii, is that child eligible to become president? ... Just being born in Hawaii doesn’t make one eligible according to the founders use of the term ‘natural born citizen’. But of course, if, like Beck, you just want to ridicule and insult folks, continue your ‘dumb’ remarks. And for goodness sakes, don’t do any digging into the facts of the issue when you can pass gas, er, judgment so readily.
