Skip to comments.Obama is not a Native US Citizen

Meandering through my 1928 Edition of Bouvier's Law Dictionary on page 833, Native, Native Citizen is defined:
Those born in a country, of parents who are citizens.
If Obama does not meet the standards of a native citizen how can he be a natural born citizen.
Here is the copy of John Jay's letter to George Washington stating..only a natural born citizen be given command of the American Army
Lets go to the Colonial period in Virginia depicting the difference between a native born and an English born immigrant:
"The society that developed in the Chesapeake was so unique that British officials often made explicit distinctions between the English-born and the natives or "creoles born in Virginia.
A trend developed where native-born whites were increasingly singled out by English writers as natives, Virginians, and creoles as they achieved dominance in a colonial government previously controlled by English-born immigrants"

Obama is not a native, native born or natural born citizen in the US.
I don’t know whether or not he’s a US citizen but I DO KNOW that he’s NOT AN AMERICAN.
Amazing! I'll expect this astounding revelation to have him out of office by dark tonight.
No? It won't?
Maybe you should contact a lunatic dentist with this astounding information.
It was very clever for probammies to deflect this issue to simply citiizenship rather than natural born citizenship. The latter is easily resolved, he isn’t an NBC, the former may be true but we cannot know until we see the long form.
Regardless, this issue will not send him out on his arse.....it would have happened by now.
If a female American citizen has a baby in the U.S., does that make the child an American citizen?
Actually, by what authority does he have to seal his records? If he can’t prove his eligibility,(by releasing the long form), then he shouldn’t have the authority to seal any of his records.
Blame Pelosi. Didn’t she sign the paper certifying that he was eligible to be the candidate. Did she see the long form? Maybe we should go after her.
I for one believe he was born in Hawaii. This is because I am sure Hillary had his FBI file in the back of her closet and it would have come out if he really wasn't. That would end the discussion for the vast majority of people because they interpret "natural born" as being born in the US as opposed, I guess, to being adopted. However, as you are pointing out it is a legal term of art that conveys a different meaning than what is the common interpretaion. The court could agree that it meant born of US parents but no judge is wanting to take that step for fear of igniting riots.
William Edward Baldwin is correct.

Some crackpot judge will deem that his tenure as POTUS qualifies him a citizen retroactively.
Or some such nonsense.
I see the AFTER-birther hookers on crack are already here.
Tell your mom it's dinner time and get her away from the computer.
Hey! Let’s get some BO re-distribution of crack movement going!
The point is not whether he’s a citizen (although even that’s in doubt) but whether he’s what is required to be President - a natural born citizen. And, quite clearly, on this definition he’s not. It requires someone to be born in the U.S.A. of U.S. citizen parents. Quite patently Obama fails this test. The birth certificate is irrelevant in this regard.
I live in Australia and used to think that this requirement, falling as it does on someone’s background something they have no control over, was unfair and unreasonable. I’ve now changed my mind.
In any case, its not what anyone thinks of it, its what it is unless and until its changed and HE FAILS THE TEST.
Too funny, AFTER-birthers are so sensitive.
