Sven, perhaps Obama was claimed by his grandparents as a dependent?????
Doesn’t matter anyway, Obama is ineligible to serve as POTUS because of the Constitution’s NBC clause.
Obama didn’t move in to live with his grandparents until 1976.

The article states: Dunham took young Maya back to Indonesia in 1976 to live with Soetoro’s mother, while Barack moved into his grandparents’ apartment on Beretania Street while he finished his high school years at Punahou.
The Soetoros took Maya as an exemption in 1973 because she was a dependent and a U.S. Citizen. The Soetoros did not take Obama as an exemption because he was not a U.S. Citizen.
