This whole thing sort of reminds me of Lewinsky. We “knew” that Clinton was lying....I remember finally the weekend before he did his defiant speech, his lackeys on the talking head shows started saying, “even if he did lie...it was just about...” and so on.
That was when we all knew he was going to confess up.
Not sure how this will end with obama, but either he lied then or he lied now....and of course the left can say, “lying about kenya back then is such a non-issue” and probably most voters will agree. But ...I think the re-focus this brings on all of this will likely hurt obama.
fun to watch him squirm for a while...

You’re close, with the following clarifications........
“..... His mother was too young to confer US citizenship at the time of his birth...”
This is only true if Baby Barack was born outside of the US. If he was born in Hawaii as he claims he would be a born citizen (a broader and lessor quality than NBC....14th Amendment citizens like Jindal and Rubio are of this quality.). No matter, with with his foreign citizen father he’s ineligible, no matter what any other of the circumstances of his birth were.
“....She gave up his citizenship when they moved to Indonesia, nobody knows if Obama ever renaturalized and there is still the possibility that he renaturalized....”
There are numerious USSC cases that hold that US born children of US Citizens whose parents gave up their citizenship and moved to another country did not effect their children’s US citizenship as long as the child’s actions upon coming of age were to assert his US citizenship. No need to “re-naturalize” (?????) I’ve always felt that when Obama’s applied for a foreign student (Fulbright) scholarship he effectively made representations to the US that he approved and accepted his mother’s/adopted father’s confered Indonesian citizenship.
While I’m fairly certain that it was young man Barack’s intent to “game” the system for school dollars, his action had unintended consequences for him. He made representations to the US government that he did not consider himself a US citizen. Therefore in the court’s eyes he effectively gave up his citizenship to claim otherwise at a latter date.
Other than that you’re pretty spot on with your comments.....thanks, now let’s work to get him OUT of our White Home in Washington D.C.
At the very least that's what it is.
I consider his books part of his resume. After all, without them, he might not be where he is today. They are likely filled with more lies than we know.
