I don’t deny that Obama is a US. citizen. Obama was born in the U.S… he IS a U.S. citizen.
Now the constitution says that being a citizen isn’t quite enough.
He has to be a “natural born” citizen.
To be “natural born” you have to:
Have at least one parent who is a U.S. citizen at the time of birth. Obama’s Mom was a U.S. citizen… so far so good.
That parent has to have been a U.S. citizen for 10 years. Obama’s Mom had been a U.S. citizen for 18 years… so far so good.
5 of those years have to be after the age of 16 at time of birth.
Uh Oh. Obama’s mother had to only give birth for Obama to be a U.S. citizen… but had to be 21 for him to be born a “natural born” citizen. She was only 18.
Had both of his parents been U.S. citizens, Obama would be a natural born citizen.
Had only one of his parents been a U.S. citizen for 10 years, 5 of which after the age of 16, Obama would be a natural born citizen.
Neither of these are true.
Obama was born a U.S. citizen, but not a “natural born” citizen, a higher standard. He can’t be President.
