The guy in the video is a con artist.
For John McCain, there were two questions that had to be answered. BECAUSE HE WAS NOT BORN ON AMERICAN SOIL. If his parents were Mexican, and he was born on an overseas US military base, he would not be a natural born citizen.
Because he was not born on American soil, they had to look to the citizenship of his parents. Obama was born on US soil and is a citizen no matter what.
Statute, by birth within U.S.
As of 2006, United States Federal law () defines ten categories of person who are United States citizens from birth. According to that law, the following acquire citizenship at birth:
* "a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof"
* "a person born in the United States to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribe" (see Indian Citizenship Act of 1924).
* "a person of unknown parentage found in the United States while under the age of five years, until shown, prior to his attaining the age of twenty-one years, not to have been born in the United States"
* "a person born in an outlying possession of the United States of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year at any time prior to the birth of such person"

Yes, Congress just passed these citizenship laws, defining who is a citizen, with huge implications for our country, so that a few crazy people, who apparently just now became aware of OCR and the PDF format, would stop posting on internet forums and blogs their ‘analyses’ of Obama’s birth certificate.

It looks like the parents don't need to be citizens if you are born on American soil according to this. Is this all a distraction for us to stop looking at the birth certificate?

The lie is yours - or rather lying spin that you mindlessly repeat. What happened was deliberately misreported. I heard the interview live and I know what was said!
Sarah Obama did not correct McRae. Others did later. That does not count because they were part of the coverup concerning Obama's birthplace.
There was NO confusion in mistranslation. That is, too, part of the excuse given. The tape makes it plain as plain that Sarah said categorically that she was present when he was born. Here is the transcript of the conversation (see end).
Heck, at the time of Obama's run for the Senate, some of the American press were saying that Kenya was Obama's birthplace Sarah just confirmed it!
And here is the Kenyan ambassador confirming that President-elect Obama was born in Kenya:
There's NO argument about it. Just DENIAL,DENIAL, DENIAL. Because some of you don't want to face the awful truth of the huge lie foisted onto the American people. You can't deal with it, so you accept lies from the media and Democrat bloggers, who concoct some absurd nonsense explanation for you to grab onto in your desperation to avoid the truth.edit on 1-5-2011 by micpsi because: (no reason given)

Of course Congress has power to make explicit or elaborate on the meaning and specific application of the Constitution, which was intentionally not excessively prescriptive except in a few areas. (Your hypothetical example would violate other parts of the Constitution.)
Congress could make a law that all left-handed midgets born between 3 and 3:07 AM in Tibet are U.S. citizens from birth (hence natural born), and one of these people could become President upon reaching the age of 35. Is this law legal? Yes. Will such a law ever be passed? Obviously not.

Correct me if I am wrong.
But wasn't senate resolution 511 NONBINDING?
That means Congress never passed a law defining what a natural born American is.
Looks like 100% is headed toward 0% proof.
The resolution means nothing, the Constitution states that both parents must be U.S. citizens, and Obama's father was a Kenyan, a british protectorate at the time, there Obama's father was British, and not a U.S. citizen.
Do your damn homework!
