That is a ridiculously false argument. The Law of Nations prohibits such a scenario by limiting recognition of citizenship to circumstances in which jus sanguinnis and/or jus soli exist in fact.
No person who is born with an allegiance to a foreign sovereign may serve as Commader-in-Chief and President of the United States. Barack Hussein Obama Jr. has publicly acknowledged he was born with an allegiance to the Sovereign of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. The Founding Fathers explicitly excluded such a person from being eligible to serve as Commader-in-Chief and President of the United States when they debated the inclusion of the natural born citizen phrase in the Constitution. Until an Amendment to the Constitution lawfully changes the intent of the Founding Fathers to exclude persons with allegiance to a foreign sovereign by removing the natural born citizen phrase used to implement the exclusion, no person may lawfully serve as Commander-in-Chief or President of the United States who was born with allegiance to a foreign sovereign.

Interesting. Particularly since Section 1 of Article Two reads as follows: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."
I thought *we* were supposed to be the strict constructionists? I thought *we* were supposed to limit interpretation of the Constitution and only apply it *as written*? Seems like there's been a few stories about that in the past decade or two.
With Dems in control of Congress and the executive branch, and the polling numbers being what they are, they're going to paint any strong opposition as right-wing nutjobbery. WHY MAKE IT SO EASY FOR THEM???
