Skip to comments.Fox News proclaims Obama 'a citizen, period'
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.

So id F**king Soros, but that has nothing to do with it! Is he a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN!!!!!
Well, if his Mother was a citizen, then so is the son.
Shep Smith in almost the same breath said Billy Graham was dead.
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.

There ya have it Shepey...plain and simple. You don’t have to stay at the Holiday Inn to know that.
“Well, if his Mother was a citizen, then so is the son.”
Maybe so, but not NATURAL BORN, as required.
At least that is my understanding of the law.
Arnold is a citizen...doesn’t mean he can president. Ditto Jennifer Granholm.
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.
Fox News is also known as Faux News.
Shep is boring and a a dink.
He is my chance to catch up on paperwork while waiting for Cavuto.
They sold their soul for pottage.
Shep should go back to the gay beach scene in beautiful PCB.
Which law? Do you have a link and quote from the pertinent law?
What? Are you new?
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.
They are immigrants. Obama was born here. Big difference.
