  • I just googled it bc I didnt know either nor have I heard of this kenya theory lol Even if it is true story being his mother flew to kenya to meet fathers parents then when she wanted to come back airline said she was too close to birth so she had to stay in kenya. Story continues with he was born there then shortly after mother & him flew to hawaii where his mother registered him as born there. Even is this is true then who cares he grew up here honestly. People are always looking for some sort of a conspiracy with everything now a days!

  • Mel -

    I think President Obama was born in Hawaii.

    But I do care that we support the Constitution, that "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."

    So, while I think it's a moot point for Pres. Obama, I DO care if someone was not a natural born citizen of the US is seeking office

    (I *guess* if there were any "citizen[s] of the US at the time of the Adoption of [the] Constitution" that would be ok, but even though the constitution doesn't outlaw zombie candidates, I don't think I would vote for them :-D )
