Well, when Obama was born in Hawaii, the state law did not allow a mother under 18 to convey natural born citizenship. Since his father was no a us citizen he could not either. Therefor, by virtue of being born in the us, he is by definition a a naturalized citizen. It's a subtle distinction but does disqualify him constitutionally. Of course we don't really follow the constitution.
There was never a case brought before them. States are supposed to review the records but they rarely actually do.
Holloway64 - Because he is the first half-black president, they cannot sully his legacy..look at the multiple scandals he has been involved in..I mean, he freaking missed a subpoena date and no one cared.
As I said, he was born in Hawaii. That's beside the point. It is who could convey natural pen citizenship in Hawaii at that time. That's the point you're missing. Also, it never reached the Supreme Court.
It's really a moot point and there is no interest. The lower courts threw it out on technicalities because it was such a political time bomb. The us Supreme Court will never hear it. It will never make the docket. Obama is the president who was selected by the people. I'm just telling you what the law said at the time. It has nothing to do with a birth certificate.
I could quote the refusals of the Supreme Court to hear the cases. The most recent was in June. They also refued in 2008.
The federal court refused to consider the case. Not their job, they said.
That's my point. The 14 th amendment confers citizenship, bu in this case not natural born citizenship. The subtle difference is between natural born and naturalized. You don't have to agree or acknowledge it, but that's the law.
Look. This is over. The constitution is clear. What's amazing is people just won't accept the reality that we bypassed the constitution. It isn't the first time. The patriot act and the undeclared wars are other examples. I just wish people would acknowledge the facts and stop name calling at those of us who point them out.
That's your error! You nailed it. That's the whole issue. Now you know. You just won't acknowledge it. Have a good day. Gotta run.
Guess the FBI fukked up too, and the dozen times his birth certificate was shown by the state of Hawaii must have been a great Photoshop forgery.
Point is in a big country there will always be a fringe, hate-filled lunatic element that sees little green men descending on their property and our president as a non-citizen.
And also a large group that will fail to read the law before making a determination. That's much scarier than the fringe group that does.
Ohhh. That question is soooooo RACIST!
Odumbo's "birth certificate" is a very badly done Photoshop forgery. His Social Security number was issued to some guy from Connecticut who died a couple decades ago. He's a fraud and an impostor. Shame on the idiots who ignore his history.
The courts didn't miss anything. They chickened out, refused to consider the case, and said it was the responsibility of Congress. The Republican party only controls the House. The Senate won't consider any questions of Obama. So Congress is blocked. So none of the evidence has ever been officially been reviewed.
And of course, the crap media won't talk about it other than to hurl insults at anyone who questions Saint Odumbo.
It wasn't the entire party. It was the thick headed morons who, at any cost, wanted to unseat the current occupant.
