Shame? I have put life and limb in defense of this nation on more than one occasion. The idea that my daughter is ineligible to hold the office of President because she was born abroad while I was serving this nation is nuts. If John McCain was eligible to run for President, then so is my daughter.

I agree with you. Where stands America's fighting men, there is America also. I regard the children of any American servicemen to be "natural born citizens". So Does Emerrich Vattel. You might find the following interesting.

“I’d rather go with the ‘Elizabeth Warren, using a phony background to advance myself’ line of attack”

100% on the mark, which should lead to Obama breaking the law (Felony?) by seeking Financial gain by applying for Foreign Student funding Grants. If the records are mysteriously “lost”, it will be damning, and unbelievable. (well aside from a majority of Black Community)

If FMD was Obama’s biological father, then Obama was a U.S. citizen at birth even if he was born in Kenya.

What the term-of-art ‘natural born Citizen’ means, is exactly what it says, a person born a citizen via Natural Law.

What is a Natural Law citizen? A Natural Law citizen, a citizen that does not require ANY Positive Law to be a citizen. The time the above applies, is when a child is born in a country, to two citizen parents. Anyone who does not fall into that category, is not Constitutioeligibleggible to be President.

We have long argued that the meaning of "natural born citizen" used by our founders in Article II was based on Emerrich Vattel's "Law of Nations" (Droit des Gens) which was read by our founders for years prior to the Constitution and was also used as a reference in the Constitutional Convention. (And the ratifying debates among several states as well.)

If we are going to accept Vattel's definition regarding "natural born citizen" then we should also accept the rest of what he says about it.

It is my opinion that the children of those who serve in our Armed forces are "natural born citizens" regardless of where they are born. It is the Parent's citizenship which is the determining factor, not the ground upon which they stand.

It would not surprise me if Obama lied about being born in Kenya to present himself as special or unique. Otherwise he was just an ordinary American born to a white woman, abandoned by his black father, raised by his white grandparents, and sent to a prestigous private school. What’s special about that?

He was clearly ashamed of his white family and had abandonment issues with his father. It’s not unusual for abandoned children to seek some way to identify/connect with their missing parents. Daddy went to Harvard. So Obama went to Harvard. Daddy was from Kenya. So Obama wanted to be from Kenya.

Being special/different opened doors for him until his political aspirations threatened to close those doors. So he discarded the old narrative and disassociated himself with those who had helped him create it. Then he set about creating a new narrative - one that fit his presidential aspirations - and associated himself with those who could best help him achieve his goal.

He is a documented liar. Always has been; always will be.

Mitt Romney can make this a page one issue tomorrow. All he has to do is mention it in a press release or campaign appearance and the mainstream media will go absolutely berserk. Of course, Romney will take a beating in the media but like the homosexual marriage issue, it will drive even more voters to the Romney camp. It all depends on whether Romney has the balls.

I'm not holding my breath.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air (one of the) Hardest Hit.

He used to wave this piece of live birth announcement in a Hawaii newspaper and claim it is the Birth Certificate.

I dropped "Hot Air" from my reading list because of that jack@ss's attempt to decide for everybody else that the birth announcements were sufficient proof, and therefore no one should question this issue any further.

It was because Ed Morrissey made up his mind that Ace of Spades and co made up their minds too. They simply wouldn't listen to any further discussion on the topic.

Ed Morrissey needs to receive all the humiliation he can.

I agree with his strategy of staying focused on the economy and fiscal matters. Stay above this and let a campaign aide do the leak followed by a public admonishment for that aide.

Someone claiming to be an editorial assistant posted this comment:

Miriam Goderich issued the following statement to Political Wire:

“You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.”

You are welcome! I am astonished at how many people want to argue about this. It is insane to regard the children of our soldiers as anything other than "natural citizens". Their parents are out there sacrificing for us, so how dare we challenge their loyalty?

John McCain's father was an Admiral in our armed forces sent to Panama to SERVE THE NATION. It is disgusting to think that some would reject his son as insufficiently loyal, or insufficiently American to be President.

Well, to be fair, at the time it was Michelle Malkin (Ed and AP’s boss) and some others in the ‘conservative circle’ made that ultimate decision.

The same as the cigar-smoke-filled room for the elites (on both sides) to decide for the great unwashed what is worth or not worth pursuing.

I'm sick of so many Republicans and\or Conservatives who ignore this issue. They are either afraid because they have allowed the liberal media to control their thoughts on the issue even if they aren't aware of it. The media did exactly what it wanted in getting one of the most important issues surrounding Obama seen as a joke by many. Then there are those disgusting self-described Conservatives who say the issue isn't important. If the Constitution isn't important to you then you are a disgrace. We have to remove this criminal scum from office if we have any chance.

The media can play too many Republicans into doing what they want with ease. They do they same thing with Presidential candidates who they persuade many of there supporters as being unelectable. The fact that Obama is electable shows we are done as a nation.

I saw this. It is SUCH bullsh*it.

My wife's first job was to do publicity for McGraw Hill. I know how this works. Where would a publicist ever come to think he was born in Kenya? And even if some publicist DID do this, does anyone really think that Obama wasn't given a review copy of whatever release and/or promotional material that might be used on his behalf?

So, they let the original run for 10 years or so with a “fact checking error” in it and then discovered there was an error and only changed “raised in chicago” but left the born in Kenya.

Breitbart is great. throw out 1/2 a bomb and save the other half for later, after the response.
