Subject: Can Obama Legally Be President ???
By Thomas Sowell

</DIV>CAN OBAMA LEGALLY BE PRESIDENT?

It seems that <SPAN class=yshortcuts id=lw_1213874958_0 style="BACKGROUND: none transparent scroll repeat 0% 0%; CURSOR: hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed">Barack Obama is not qualified to be president after allfor
the following reason:

Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. natural-born citizen according to
the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between
'December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986? Presidential office requires
anatural-born citizen if the child was not born to two U.S. citizen
parents, which of course is what exempts John McCain though he was
bornin the Panama Canal . US Law very clearly stipulates: '.If only one
parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must
have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five
of which had to be after the age of 16.' Barack Obama's father was not
aU.S. citizen and Obama's mother was only 18 when Obama was born, </DIV>whichmeans though she had been a U.S. citizen for 10 years, (or citizen
perhaps because of Hawaii being a territory) the mother fails the test
for being so for at least 5 years **prior to** Barack Obama's birth,but
*after* age 16. It doesn't matter *after* . In essence, she was not old
enough to qualify her son for automatic U.S. citizenship. At most,there
were only 2 years elapsed since his mother turned 16 at the time of
Barack Obama's birth when she was 18 in Hawaii. His mother would have
needed to have been 16+5= 21 years old, at the time of Barack Obama's
birth for him to have been a natural-born citizen. As aforementioned,she
was a young college student at the time and was not. Barack Obama was
already 3 years old at that time his mother would have needed to have
waited to have him as the only U.S. Citizen parent. Obama instead
should have been naturalized, but even then, that would stilldisqualify
him from holding the office.

*** <SPAN class=yshortcuts id=lw_1213874958_1 style="CURSOR: hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed">Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office ofPresident.
*** Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all theother
info does not matter because his mother is the one who needed to have
been a U.S. citizen for 10 years prior to his birth on August 4, 1961,
with 5 of those years being after age 16. Further, Obama may have hadto
have remained in the country for some time to protect any citizenshiphe
would have had, rather than living in Indonesia. Now you can see why
Obama's aides stopped his speech about how we technically have morethan
50 states, because it would have led to this discovery. This is very
clear cut and a blaring violation of U.S. election law. I think theGov.
of California would be very interested in knowing this if Obama were
elected President without being a natural-born U.S. citizen, and itwould
set precedence. Stay tuned to your TV sets because I suspect some of
thisinformation will be leaking through over the next several days.

It's amazing the stuff people will believe when they read it on the internet. That is as false as every other fake quote and fake story about Obama posted on this forum.

Snopes is calling it false, although it does not give an explanation. Think this one requires a little more research, although I have a feeling if this were true, it would have been out in the open by now. Billary wouldn't have overlooked this one.

In order to appease the asshats of the world, the birth certificate has been published. It only has to legally be published to the elections commission and obviously has been. If you think he would have gotten this far without being legally of age or properly born a U.S. citizen, you are nuts.

If, at the time of your birth, both your parents were U.S. citizens and at least one had a prior residence in the United States, you automatically acquired U.S. citizenship with no conditions for retaining it.

If only one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, that parent must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16. There are no conditions placed on retaining this type of citizenship. If your one U.S. citizen parent is your father and you were born outside of marriage, the same rules apply if your father legally legitimated you before your 21st birthday and you were unmarried at the time. If legitimation occurred after November 14, 1986, your father must have established paternity prior to your 18th birthday, either by acknowledgment or by court order, and must have stated in writing that he would support you financially until your 18th birthday.<P class=MsoNormal style="BACKGROUND: white; MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/ht...5----000-.html<P class=MsoNormal style="BACKGROUND: white; MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana"><o><P class=MsoNormal style="BACKGROUND: white; MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana">A person born in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:State w:st="on">Hawaii</st1:State> on or after August 12, 1898, and before April 30, 1900, is declared to be a citizen of the <st1lace w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">United States</st1:country-region></st1lace> as of April 30, 1900. <B style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">A person born in <st1:State w:st="on">Hawaii</st1:State> on or after[/B] <B style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">April 30, 1900, is a citizen of the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">United States</st1lace></st1:country-region> at birth[/B].
