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.
>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. <
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.
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.
On left wing hack websites.
Do a search on FR there are hundreds of threads that will bring you up to speed.
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.
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.
Do I look new?
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.
`What would John Wayne do?’
I think he would discount opinions from a guy who wears eye-liner.
No, you just look that way.
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?
Oh, now you are making sense.
“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.
I’ve been told that news people used to do real research in search of truth. Not these days, and not from our pop media. The dupes need to produce something other than that cut and paste BC.
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.
Do hope they give him at least one interview with Corsi. That would be good. And O’Reilly as well. Beck would probably refuse.
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.
Still trolling these threads I see....do you have or can you quote a law that says otherwise?
Lets start here:
Or this is what someone wants people to believe we’re concerned with...
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.
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.
Good then show us the BC. The B.I.R.T.H Certificate and not the certificate of live birth.
Then it will be resolved.
grats, he’s a citizen.
they seem to give that out almost as easy as noble prizes
now, about the citizenship of his father at the time of his birth... exactly how could 0bama be a -natural born- citizen again?
The Constitution and settled law are clear on the definition of “natural born”. Mr. Soetero has yet to demonstrate he qualifies.
On a side note Franklin Graham is up in a few minutes.
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?
