I'm sure if there was something he was hiding that could get him kicked off the ticket, it would had already been found out by now. You better beleive the C.I.A/N.S.A or who have you, has already backround checked every living second of his life.
Prior to 14 November 1986, the physical presence requirement in this case was ten years (instead of five) -- including five years (instead of two) spent after the parent's 14th birthday. The requirement was reduced in 1986, but the change did not retroactively make US citizenship available to people born previously who did not meet the old requirement. (Congress's intent not to make this change retroactive was affirmed in 1988 with the passage of Public Law 100-525, § 8(d), 102 Stat. 2619).

I really don't get this. The burden of proof is on the accuser, not the accused. If one claims that Obama is not eligible for POTUS, then they should have documentation to prove it. Where are the documents? Where are the pictures? Show me something as opposed to suggesting that there is a coverup of immense proportions not only at the state and federal level, but internationally as well. Why didn't Hillary knock him out early on? Why do top investors (Buffet/Soros)risk their reputations by advising and associating with him? Why hasn't McCain wrapped up this election with such information? I just can't see Obama's financial and political backers being so negligent as to miss something of such obvious magnitude.
