He continues to possess US citizenship by virtue of his birth, until and unless he renounced it as an adult.
Obama may or not be a "native born" citizen, as he claims on his website, Fight the Smears." Releasing his birth certificate would settle that issue.
But, he is not a "natural born" citizen as required by Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the United States Constitution, simply because, "at birth," Obama was a citizen of Kenya and a British subject -- a fact he also admits on the website cited above.

(A "natural born citizen" -- two American citizen parents and born in the USA.)
As I said before, you don’t have to convince me.
He became President without releasing it. Why would he care what Beckwith (or all of FreeRepublic for that matter) thinks ?
He has zero reasons to release it, especially if it’s embarrassing or there’s a problem.
I believe getting worked up over this has become counter-productive. This will not have any effect on Obama.
