    After a poll came out today from Wenzel Strategies stating that only 51% of Americans think Obama is eligible to be President it raised a question.



    According to Obamas website this was released:

    “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

    Fight the Smears: The Truth About Barack?s Birth Certificate

    Furthermore: Hawaii's Territorial Law, Chapter 57 - "VITAL STATISTICS, I", shown beginning pg 23 of 29, (the law in effect in 1961) allowed baby's born anywhere in the world to be eligible to apply for a Hawaii birth certificate.

    Joint Motion - with HI Territorial Law 57

    The question is how can a Natural Born Citizen's status be "GOVERNED" by Great Britian?

    My understanding is that the US does not recognize dual nationality, but many places do.

    Someone born in the US is a US Citizen.

    I think this is kind of silly, but I heard of worse. Someone claimed that Barry Goldwater wasn't qualified to run for POTUS because when he was born, AZ was not a state.

    You are correct the U.S. does not recognize dual citizenship. Obama is at best a U.S. Citizen but not a Natural Born Citizen which is the Constitutional requirement to be President. He is not eligible.

    But he was born in Hawaii which means he is 'natural born'.

    Edit: Ohhhh, I see what you're saying now. Oops. That does seem to make him ineligible. Damn.... I had always assumed the 'birther' thing was about him being born in Kenya. Hmmm. This appears not to be the case.

    Look he was born in Hawaii, a US STATE at the time, to an American Citizen Mother, he is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. Unless you believe that the Republican Governor and LT. Governor are covering for him.

    British law and acts applied to whether Obama could be considered a British Citizen. The way Dual citizenship works in the States is the child decides at 18 if the Parents do nothing before that date.

    Read my previous post. dual citizenship does not become illegal in the US until a person is OF AGE to consent and choose his citizenship. He made that choice by6 remaining in this country and staying an American citizen BY BIRTH.

    Obama's dad was a British subject, Obama would be recognized by the Brits as British.
