Obama Doesn’t Need a Birth Certificate

According to Romney family lawyers it doesn’t matter if Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, Kenya, or even Paris: Because his mother was an American (and not even Donald Trump questions that), he is eligible to be President. The Romney lawyers investigated this question in the 1960s, when Mitt Romney’s father, Governor George Romney of Michigan, was vying for the Republican presidential nomination. George Romney had been born in a Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico, as his grandfather moved there with his wives in the 1880s after polygamy was outlawed in the U.S. While some opponents nicknamed him “Chihuahua George,” his suitability for the highest office because of his birth was never seriously challenged. The reason his campaign faltered was because of his shift in position on the Vietnam War: He went from being a supporter to opposing it, infamously claiming to have been “brainwashed” by military officials. After that Richard Nixon’s lead in the polls more than doubled.


Article II of the U.S. Constitution states that “No person except a natural born citizen … shall be eligible to the Office of President,” and so the question is: Does natural born citizen mean born a citizen or born in the U.S.? The Founding Fathers were of course aware of both jus soli (birthright citizenship) and jus sanguinis (citizenship through parentage), but deliberately wrote “natural born” rather than something like “born on U.S. soil,” arguably to include children born to U.S parents outside the country.


The first Congress of the United States (which included many of the Founders) furthered this interpretation, when, in 1790, they passed the Immigration and Naturalization Act, stating that: “The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States.” (In 1795 Congress however passed a new act stating that: “… the children of citizens of the United States born out of the limits and jurisdiction of the United States, shall be considered as citizens of the United States.”) Originally the passing of citizenship to children only applied through one’s father, which is why George Romney (born 1907 in Mexico to an American father) was automatically a U.S. citizen, while Winston Churchill (born 1874 in England to an American mother) wasn’t. Only in 1934 did Congress change the law so that citizenship automatically passed through one’s mother as well.

Then why did he produce it?

He could have just stated what you referenced and been done with it-legally.

So, why did he release one? One that has apparent issues with?

To keep the issue going?

Maybe you should write him and let him know this? You might get a reply back.

Because it doesn't matter to the birthers, hell some people here are demanding proof he even exists, it's all a sideshow and Obama used it to his advantage the entire time.

Agreed. Obama made trump look like a fool all over the country. Trump the man who made a fortune, is accusing the us gov of being so stupid they let a non citizen be elected to the highest office in the land.

HIT NAIL ON HEAD: to keep the issue going! Obama and his campaign advisors LOVE this issue because it gives him the liberal sympathy vote. MSNBC and the White House (subtly) boil this down to a race issue, ignorant independents and even Obama voters who might be on the fence after his first years in office might think "that poor man, they only hate him because he's black" distracting from any real issues. the PC crowd might feel the need to defend him with their votes, giving Obama an advantage leading into the primaries.

if this was a real legal issue, then someone within the system somewhere would have been able to bring charges against him. obviously there is no legal precedent here, otherwise we wouldn't be three years into an illegal presidency. but if the White House just comes out and settles the argument, they have no racist republicans to hold up to the public to make Obama look like a victim. think about it; there are no other groups getting any significant media attention regarding Obama's origins or qualifications, the "right" (newspeak) is behaving themselves.

since Obama really has no slam-dunk accomplishments to win votes with, he and his people are resorting to old political tricks. "look how mean and backwards my opponents are! you can't vote for them! or you are mean and backwards, too!" neither side has anything of value to offer, so they just have to demonize their opponents.
