‘Birthers’ challenge President Obama’s citizenship

January 13, 2011
Maui Weekly

Recently, broadcast journalist Anderson Cooper went “head-to-head” with Texas State Rep. Leo Berman, who reportedly expressed doubt about Obama’s birthplace.

Obama’s campaign came up with a copy of his Hawai‘i birth certificate and posted it online. The certificate states Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, on Aug. 4, 1961.

The Constitution states, “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… ”

The first sentence disqualified Barack Obama with what some say is a technicality. Obama is not technically a natural born American citizen. He was born a British citizen and then became a citizen of Kenya after it declared its independence. At age 23, Kenyan law reportedly insists you must swear allegiance to Kenya or lose citizenship.

Obama reportedly did not swear allegiance to Kenya. He apparently didn’t bother to swear allegiance to the United States either, becoming a man without a country.

If Obama’s critics are technically correct, then Obama is technically wrong and should be impeached.
