Fox News proclaims Obama 'a citizen, period'
WND ^ | April 26, 2011 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 04/26/2011 5:51:19 PM PDT by RobinMasters

As controversy continues to heat up over whether Barack Obama is a "natural born citizen" and thus constitutionally eligible to be president, Fox News has declared that Obama is "a citizen of the United States."

The proclamation came yesterday by Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, who said:

"He has produced a birth certificate. It shows his mother gave birth to him in Hawaii. It is stamped and sealed by the state of Hawaii. It is confirmed and Fox News can confirm the president of the United States is a citizen of the United States. Period."

Smith never mentioned that typical citizens of the U.S. cannot run for president, but that only "natural born citizens" can, which has to do not only with the birthplace of a candidate, but also the citizenship of a candidate's parents.

He was reacting to statements by Christian evangelist Franklin Graham suggesting Obama should produce his long-form birth certificate that includes the name of a doctor and hospital of birth.

How about starting a petition to Fox News, to get rid of Shepard Smith? He’s nothing!

I think he’d rather not have people know who is listed as the father on the long form.

Maybe so, but not NATURAL BORN, as required.

At least that is my understanding of the law.

I wasn't aware that the Shep had been promoted as spokesman for the Fox News Network.

Shepard Smith is a retread sports commentator moron. Can't stand the retard.
Isn't he the doofus who assaulted a fellow worker over a parking space a while back?

For me, that kinda pegs his position in the "Trailer Park-O-Meter."

Sorry Shep, the issue is NOT settled.

All the evidence suggests that Obama was born in Hawaii. If you want to argue over “natural born”, go to it. By the time this matter was ever settled legally, Obama would probably be out of office.

His mother was not of legal age and his father was a Brittish Kenyan subject. Under the law at the time he was British if Obama Sr was really his father. Then he was adopted and became an Indonesian citizen and Indonesia did not allow dual citizenships. At best he is a naturalized US citizen, but he could still be an Indonesian citizen because he has not released any information in the 0bama version of transparency.

Here's a room full of citizens of the United States, as they take their oath of citizenship. They're citizens, period, like Obama claims to be, but they're not eligible for the presidency either. Let's see all the hidden records and see if the communist usurper really is a natural born citizen.

Sounds like Shep was speaking for the big guy Rupert.

Fox News can confirm...period.

This is not just politics folks. There are people in the government/media/Wall St - complex that are exhibiting FEAR.

I wonder what it is they fear?

Could there be Rand Corp or CIA studies that show the nation will burn in civil war if he is found to be ineligible? Certainly any right thinking person would prefer to see that then an interloper in the White House.

He's not one of us.

Shep Smith is the wussie liberal that blamed George Bush for Katrina on live TV. It is not hard to see he is a card carrying liberal. Just because Shep says that's the way it is, period, doesn't mean that is really the way it is.

President, Obama, just produce the long form birth certificate and remove all doubt. President Obama, are you there???? Hellloooooooooo. Is there anyone there????? We are talking about your birth certificate, and you are stonewalling.

Why?

Hey Shep: Whatever happened to "We report, you decide".
They flipped to "We've decided for you, and we have no clue as to the difference between 'citizen' and Natural Born Citizen".

If the mom is a citizen, then the son is a citizen. Not all citizens are eligible to be President. The legal age of the mother is unimportant. Indonesia’s opinion is not important.

If we are speaking of our current President, he is hiding something important on his long form birth certificate — assuming he has one.

In my view, a “natural born citizen” is one who has been a citizen from birth. I really think that if one of your parents is an American citizen, you are as well. I think the law specifies this as well. Doesn’t it say that as long as one parent is an American, and has lived for at least five years in America, their child will be a citizen.
I really think this issue is a loser. There are so many more things this jack ass is doing, and this is what we are concerned with?

“Which law? Do you have a link and quote from the pertinent law?”

Please note....I did not say IT IS THE LAW.
I said it is my understanding, as it has been posted on many sites, that to be a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, the father must also be a US citizen.

You’re right that there are hundreds of FR threads on this. I have not found a single one that cites an actual law on the matter. I do see a lot of pissing and moaning whenever anyone dares attack birther orthodoxy.

"If the mom is a citizen, then the son is a citizen"

Not true.

If mom was a citizen who established residence in another country (while NOT doing official government business) the child born in that country would NOT be a US Citizen.

Now, I'm not saying it's the case, but hypothetically, if his mom moved to Kenya and married Sr. there...then gave birth, the child is not a US Citizen.

Unless Steve's daddy was not 0 Senior and some other person who was a citizen then he is NOT an NBC.

You opinion is in direct conflict with the law.

I am all for attacking him on all fronts (psst I can do that).

This issue is not a loser because Steve has no way out now and since Trump started his popularity has plummeted.

It is not. His mother was an American. She lived here for 5 years prior to him being born, with at least 2 years being over the age of 14.

Another angle folks don't look at much is this one: What if he was born under a different name...say Barry Dunham.

He'd need to show official name change docs to support his current moniker. And, then, where has Barry Dunham been and what has HE done over the years? Has Barry Dunham ever been or claimed citizenship in another country?

Another spooky angle for BHO: What if he was adopted? IF so, where was he born? Where is the complete paper trail?

All of this could be easily settled if he would just produce his long form...assuming he HAS one. He may not.

The Constitution and settled law are clear on the definition of “natural born”. Mr. Soetero has yet to demonstrate he qualifies.

Actually, as I have been reading it, she would have to have been 14 y.o. Plus 5 years to transfer citizenship. She wasn’t.

So, let’s say the mother is, shall we say, Maury Povich material, and she sleeps with multiple men, some of whom happen to not be American citizens, but she is an American citizen. Do we make her child take a DNA test to determine whether or not he qualifies as a natural born citizen?
