Skip to comments.Obama's MySpace page: I'm 52 years old, not 48

If President Obama were indeed born in Hawaii, was it while the islands were a territory of the United States?
A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural born" citizen appeared today when Obama's official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.

These stories just get weirder and weirder.
Maybe THIS is what he’s been hiding. Now wouldn’t that be a real kick.
you don’t spend millions when you have nothing to hide.
Oh, come on............ myspace page and the wrong birthdate.....
This is really stretching it... What is the chance that Obama actually made this page versus some intern? The chance of this being simply a mistake by the kid who made the MySpace page is much greater than a conspiracy going back fifty years to change the date of Bambi’s birth.
I was born in Hawaii, 1956. Both my parents are U.S. citizens. So I believe that if I wanted to, I could run for president.
Probably another DU or Move-On stunt.
I just checked it out. It says he’s 52! Probably a mistake by the person who set up the page. I wouldn’t make this a big deal. It was probably done on purpose to piss off the birthers.
Agreed, you would think someone in the WH would have tied up the name though
He doesn’t act like a 52 year-old.
Or a 48 year-old, either, for that matter.
Agreed. In addition, that would have made his mother only 13 at the time of his birth, which isn’t very likely.
If he truly was born in Hawaii, I don’t think it matters when. Hawaii is a state, which would make him natural born.
Barry Goldwater was born in AZ before it had become a state. Are we suggesting he wasn’t natural born? This article is silly.
But I would still like to see a birth certificate.
Well which is it. Is he 48 as of the first of this month or 52?
An IDIOT could have put that myspace page there.
Probably for good reason. ;)
in a quick reply, Robert Gibbs had this to say:
“MySpace obviously mis-spoke. What they should have printed isn’t necessary what was typed, but they should have known better. The media has mis-read this as an admission the age of the President, but what’s there isn’t what’s not there and what shoulda not been printed.”
“I hope that clarifies the situation for everyone. This is now old news and it’s time for us to move forward.”
No doubt, I would have thought the name would have been reserved for the one himself though.
..and people wonder why so many don’t take WND seriously.
