Can Barack Obama Leagally be President?


It seems that Barack Obama is not qualified to be president after all
for the following reasons:

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

a natural-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 born in 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 a U.S. citizen and Obama's mother was

only 18 when Obama was born, which means 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 still disqualify him from
holding the office.

*** Naturalized citizens are ineligible to hold the office of President. ***

Though Barack Obama was sent back to Hawaii at age 10, all the other
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 had to have remained
in the country for some time to protect any citizenship he would have had,
rather than living in Indonesia. Now you can see why Obama's aides
stopped his speech about how we technically have more than 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 the Gov. of California would be
very interested in knowing this if Obama were elected President without being
a natural-born U.S. citizen, and it would set precedence. Stay tuned to
your TV sets because I suspect some of this information will be leaking
through over the next several days.

I cannot say if it is or is not legit. If you can please let us hear from you

Ann Dunham (Obama's mother) was born in Kansas. That means she was a citizen of the United States of America from the moment of her birth.

What in the world are you thinking?

theroguex, I think the claim here is that it doesn't matter if his mother was an American or not it matters if he was naturally born. and according to the rule (at the time of Obama's birth and since changed) was that you had to be born on US soil and at that time Hawaii wasn't considered to qualify. That being said I believe this claim has since been debunked.
