Who gives a damn where Obama was born! WHAT???
We are going about this the wrong way. It is very easy to prove that Obama was a British Citizen at birth.

The answer is right here:
Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.’s children:
“British Nationality Act of 1948 (Part II, Section 5): Subject to the provisions of this section, a person born after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if his father is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at the time of the birth.” In other words, at the time of his birth,
Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S. citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United Kingdom by virtue of being born to a father who was a citizen of the UK.

Obama having dual citizenship at birth doesn’t mean he isn’t a natural born citizen, I’m a natural born citizen who was also born with Irish citizenship (and I could get British if I wanted to fill out the paperwork), I’ve never been to either country and it hasn’t ever changed my U.S. citizenship status. You have to renounce your U.S. citizenship in order to lose it if you were born in the U.S.

If he was that is.

If he wasn't their would be no case that despite his being born of a foreign father, he'd somehow still be Natural Born Citizen, because he wouldn't have been a citizen at all when he was born. Might still not be, unless he was naturalized along the way somewhere. But if he was, then that is disqualifier, too.
