If you knew that Barak Obama was not a "natural born" citizen, would you still want him to be your president.

I am not saying that he is or isnt, but if it came out that he wasnt a natural born citizen would you still want him to be your president, or would you want him impeached?

BTW-the qualifications for being president is...No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

  • No. I would not want anyone who did not qualify by the rules in place to be President.

  • you can be natural born, move away somewhere else for a time(not be a citizen there) come back to the US and live here for 14 years and still be the president.

  • I would think he has been totally checked out by the fbi, cia, secret service, and anybody else that is involved with the nomination of a president. don't think he would have gotten clearance to run without being under the microscope. that being said, i do think more experience should be called for.
