Where does it say that the mother has to be “of age”?! No where I’ve seen. I think some birther pulled that out of his A** and people made it some kind of comeback ever since.
Doesn’t make any difference, dirka, his dad was a british citizen at the time of obama’s alleged birth.
If, in fact, his dad is who obama claims he is, then obama is not eligible, end of story.
But it doesn’t matter, because there are far too many cowards, idiots, and morons in this country, so nothing is going to be done about it.
Let’s just hope Bin Laden’s children don’t decide to run for president, because Obama’s use of the constitution as toilet paper has left the door wide open.
You “think” that. You mean you don’t think. Give the people who have actually read the law that applied at that time some credit. I’m not going to repeat it here, since it’s been sliced, diced and laid out clearly so many times already.

Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock: A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) INA provided the citizen parent was physically present in the U.S. for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child’s birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen is required. For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen are required for physical presence in the U.S. to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.
Stanley Ann Dunham Obama was too young to meet the age requirement.
The issue isn’t precisely her age at the time of birth, but the amount of time she lived in the U.S. after her fourteenth birthday.
If Obama was born outside the U.S., he never was and is not now a U.S. citizen. If he was born IN the U.S., he never was and is not now a “natural-born” U.S. citizen.
