So, what's your point? According to the very article you sourced, Obama clearly DID NOT have dual citizenship when he ran for, and was elected as
POTUS. Of course we wouldn't elect a President who currently had dual citizenship, (at least I wouldn't) but Obama didn't and so we did, elect him
Personally, I don't think that anyone "currently possessing" dual citizenship should be allowed to serve in any position in the federal government,
whether it be by election or appointment. I'm not saying that anyone who has ever had dual citizenship shouldn't be able to serve, only that you
shouldn't be eligible to serve while retaining citizenship of a foreign nation. If you want to serve, then you should make a choice of where your
Many Americans end up with birthright citizenship in foreign nations because of the nationality of their parents but it doesn't make them any less
American than you or I. We are a nation of immigrants which, by it's very nature, will produce children who are awarded dual citizenship at birth.
Can't have one without the other.
On the other hand, I would just imagine that during the time that our founding fathers were writing the very constitution that is the cornerstone of
our great society, that many of them were indeed citizens of other nations. I'm sure that during those early years, there were many occasions where
children were born as American citizens when neither of their parents were U.S. citizens, much less just one of them.
I think you may have better luck recruiting members to the Obama haters fan club with the alien hybrid theory. At least it's harder for those of us
who actually rely on facts to disprove.
