Oh, let the birthers rant. Particularlty the OP.
They can have their little circle jerk they seem to have to do twice a week on ATS.
It doesn't matter in the least, they are in outer space. They are completly irrelevant, have zero effect on anything.
Why argue anymore? Nuts are nuts!
...your continued worship of Obama.
When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.
Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4, 1982.”
Corrected (Sep. 3, 2009): Our original article incorrectly stated that then-Sen. Obama lost his Kenyan citizenship on Aug. 4, 1982. The correct date is Aug. 4, 1984. The Kenyan Constitution required Obama to choose whether to keep either his U.S. or Kenyan citizenship upon his 21st birthday, which was in 1982. But we initially missed that the Constitution provided him a two-year window for making that choice. So Obama did not lose his Kenyan citizenship until his 23rd birthday in 1984. We have updated the item to reflect this.
Apparently, according to the Obama campaign, In 1981 -- the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University -- Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend's family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India.

What is so threatening to you about him?
What about him is such a threat to you that he must be dragged through this never-ending mudbath by you people?
Do you live in this country? Do you listen to any news other than MSNBC, CBS, Huffington Post? If not you are quickly becoming the minority of those who still aren't getting it.
Its not about "IF" he and his cronies are doing what so many warned about, its now whether you agree with that agenda or not.

Thanks birthers! I really needed a laugh today, and, as usual, you came through!
Go guys! Go! Damn Obama!
Of course one could turn to that great legal scholar, Sen. Patrick Leahy, who agreed with former judge and HSA Secretary Michael Chertoff in 2008 when Chertoff said, “It is my understanding that a natural born citizen has two parents who are citizens.”
“It is my understanding that a natural born citizen has two parents who are citizens.”
“My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen,” Chertoff replied.
“That is mine, too,” said Leahy.

I think you should take your ditto agenda to a rightwing site then and leave this conspiracy site. We have enough wingnuts whining , "oh we lost we lost, it's doomsday, we lost. Halliburton is losing profit. America is doomed, We lost boo who who"
This post is so much semantics driven, Obama was born in America, he's President. Get over it. In fact he's doing a heck of a better job than his predecessor.
Either debate the OP on its merits and claims or go play with yourself somewhere else.
