Are you willfully ignorant, or just ignorant, or Article II of the US Constitution?

Jus how many people on here think any US Citizen is eligible to be president? LOL, that's really stupid. Try reading the Constitution for a change...here's a link: http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#A2Sec1 You guys think you're smarter than an army of conservative lawyers challenging... show more Jus how many people on here think any US Citizen is eligible to be president?

Puh-leez.
Update: Obama's father was NOT A US CITIZEN, HE WAS KENYAN.
A NATURAL BORN US CITIZEN
is "jus soli jus sanguinus" meaning BOTH parents must be US citizens and the child born on US soil.
Obama concurs with this in his own writing in S.R. 511. Look it up. You don't want to defy your messiah!
Update 2: John Bingham, who wrote the 14th amendment about US Citizenship also concurs.
So does legal precedent at the Supreme Court:
Perkins v. Elg
US v. Wong Kim Ark
So does Sen. Leahy, Sec. Chertoff to name a few.

Shine on, Don, you're just making up stuff again and believing yourself! Try linking to John Bingham's OWN WORDS, he wrote the definitions.
Update 5: Do you know what a Natural Born Citizen is? If you answer “a child born on American soil,” you are only partially correct. The Framers of the Constitution and American citizens at the time of the writing of the Constitution understood the term so well, that there was no need to define it. Through the years,... show more Do you know what a Natural Born Citizen is? If you answer “a child born on American soil,” you are only partially correct. The Framers of the Constitution and American citizens at the time of the writing of the Constitution understood the term so well, that there was no need to define it. Through the years, however, the term has fallen from public conversation. Its meaning, however, is still the same today as it was over 200 years ago. There are many, many references to the term in our written history, and one common definition is repeated over and over:

A Natural Born Citizen is born to two American Citizens on American Soil.

The Framers of the Constitution made this a special requirement of the President, and only the President. It is not a requirement of any other position, including Senators, Representatives, or Supreme Court Justices. It makes complete sense that the Founding Fathers would make this strict requirement to ensure that no President had split or divided
Update 6: loyalty to any other nation. The President of the United States should have allegiance to America, and America only. Despite widespread, popular belief, Mr. Obama’s father was not an American Citizen. Mr. Obama, Sr was a Kenyan (British) citizen in the United States on a student visa. Thus, Barack Obama was... show more loyalty to any other nation. The President of the United States should have allegiance to America, and America only.

Despite widespread, popular belief, Mr. Obama’s father was not an American Citizen. Mr. Obama, Sr was a Kenyan (British) citizen in the United States on a student visa. Thus, Barack Obama was born with both Kenyan (British) and American citizenship. This is precisely what the Framers guarded against when they wrote the Constitution and put the strict Natural Born Citizen requirement in place. It makes no difference that he lost his Kenyan citizenship at the age of 21, the Constitution is only concerned with citizenship at the time of birth.

Mr. Obama freely admits that he was both an American and Kenyan citizen at birth (see his official website called fightthesmears.com). This is no secret. Despite repeated requests for the media to cover this most important issue during the election, it was repeatedly ignored.
Update 7: Tubby: Natural Born Citizen is based on what the Constitution is based on :BRITISH NATURAL LAW where it is amply defined. As far as your other ridiculus criteria....Lt.

As far as your other ridiculus criteria....Lt. Quarles Harris was shot in the head as the key witness to the passport investigation for his Indonesian citizenship (yet another layer which disqualifies him), and Obama has spent over $1million in legal fees not to show his vault birth certificate. Very funny.
Update 8: Don B: a "native born" citizen is one born on US soil, a "naturalized" citizen is born of at least one US citizen parent, and a natural borncitizen is born of both US citizen parents on US soil.
