What about the claims that Obama’s father (who lived in Connecticut) applied for Obama’s SSN before Obama was 12?
(I don’t know either way, but this seems to be the only “out” for this issue)
Where is there proof that his father lived in Conn ? Even if he did, it would make no sense. These are the steps that would have to have been followed:
It seems the number was issued sometime between 1976 and 1977. Therefore, the only way he could have that number issued was if he had a mailing address in Conn. Now a little common sense has to be used here. Say you are a 16 year old looking to get his first job. Do you
(a) Go to the nearest Social Security office and fill out the form in order to get the card as fast as possible so you can get that summer job as fast as possible; or
(b) (1) Have someone on the mainland fill out the card for you
(2) Once filled out, they have to mail it back to you for your signature
(3) You then send it back to them with your birth certificate (that is needed in applying for a social security number )
(4) He then files the form, but instead of putting your address on it as the mailing address so that the card is sent directly to you, a Conn. mailing address is put on the application
(5) The card is sent to the mailing address in Conn and is then sent on to you in Hawaii.
If he was applying for his social security number, wouldn't a normal person go through procedue (a). Even if for some reason they chose the (b) option, wouldn't you at least put the mailing address as Hawaii so the card would be sent straight to you ?
One other thing. The number was issued between 1976 and 1977, so it would have had to have been issued after Obama was 12. Plus Obama Sr. returned to Kenya in 1965 and visited the US once in 1971.
