Brett lists several examples of who would be considered a natural born American. In short, people like Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal can breathe a sigh of relief. They are good to go.
All the law requires is that the mother be an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for five years or more, at least two of those years after the age of 14. If the mother fits those criteria, the child is a U.S. citizen at birth, regardless of the father's nationality.
This makes my blood boil.
These people must be stupid, and I can read and at least understand college level language. Come On....these people never learn and in the end, we are going to have to enforce the 2nd amendment in order to set this government right again. Pathetic.
And from GOPUSA no less -- there are some intelligent comments, but how bright do you need to be to do a little research and find out what The Founders intended and WHY ?
You said it Clois, if they are successful it will legitimize Boy'O!!
They are trying to make Obama legal.
The Supreme Court has ruled on this in the past and they stated that to be a Natural Born Citizen both Parents must be Citizens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brett Bair has been bought off by obumer!!!!!!!!!!
Obama is not eligible, Rubio is not eligible - what part of the Constitution don't you understand?! I expected a lot more from Bret Bair - another bought off by this regime. I agree with you gentlemen, we all need to be ready to clean house.
Please go back and check this thread - There IS a difference between "citizen by birth" (born in the country) and "Natural Born Citizen" (born in the contry of two citizen parents). The intent of the Founders was to have a President and Commander in Chief with NO divided loyalty because either of the parents were not citizens of this country alone and therefore loyal only to this country. The idea that loyalty to another nation could pass from parent to child was why that eligibility was put in The Constitution and they grandfathered themselves in.
It has still not been PROVEN with verifiable documents that BO was born in Hawaii, There is no certified document that has been found or provided that proves Where, When, How, and Who the father actually is. If we can believe BO, his father is BHO senior, but that has not been PROVEN. If his sather is BHO senior, then because his father was never a US citizen BO does not have two citizen parents and his birth place is not enough to make him eligible.
