Unfortunately, you and your progressive brothers have resorted to confusion and distortion
Actually, the burden is on the CANDIDATE to establish eligibility
Obama had to be a citizen, according to your own rendition of "facts."
"A person who is a national of the United States, whether by birth or naturalization, shall lose his nationality by: (a) Obtaining naturalization in a foreign state, either upon his own application or through the naturalization of a parent having legal custody of such person: Provided, however, That nationality not be lost as the result of the naturalization of a parent unless and until the child shall have attained the age of twenty-three years without acquiring permanent residence in the United States:....."
(1)A foreign child of less than 5 years age who is adopted by a citizen of the Republic of Indonesia acquires the citizenship of the Republic of Indonesia, if such an adoption is declared legal by the Pengadilan Negeri at the residence of the person adopting the child."
If you are a birther, you are either part of the dirty tricks propaganda machine (in which case you are a lying crook), or you are a moron. So fess up. Which one is it?
I think Obama is happy with keeping the focus on the 'birthers' and Sarah Palin. While the nutcases bicker about the existence of santa clause, and listen to a vacuous semi-literate demagogue, health care reform is done, financial reform is almost done, two Supreme Court appointments in 18 mos., major initiatives accomplished on nuclear weapons, economy improving, and on and on is getting accomplished.
Obama knows what he is doing. It's the political version of the rope-a-dope, in my opinion....

And the children of such persons so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty-one years at the time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States. And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States: Provided also, That person heretofore proscribed by any State, shall be admitted as a citizen as aforesaid, except by an act of Legislature of the State in which such person was proscribed

Birthers are yet to prove his not eligible.
Actually, the burden is on the CANDIDATE to establish eligibility, not the other way around.
