    This is absolutely insane. Looks like Mitt is going to suffer the same fate as his father, who blew his presidential nomination chances by switching from support of the Vietnam War to opposition of it; only this time, Mitt will learn that more than an "extreme portion of the population" don't share his view on what makes a natural-born citizen. Lawyers for Romney say even if Obama was born in Kenya or Paris, he would still be eligible to be president because his mother was a American citizen. If Obama was born out of the country , under the law at the time, his mother did not live in the US for 5 years after the age of 14 before he was born. Thus she could not pass on US citizenship to him. Do they even research the law before making these asinine comments? The reason behind this is because Romneys dad George wasn't eligible either when he ran for president.



    According to Romney family lawyers it doesn't matter if Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, Kenya, or even Paris: Because his mother was an American (and not even Donald Trump questions that), he is eligible to be President.

    Romney's lawyers are right. The law you cited was a Hawaiian State law and has no bearing on US Citizenship.

    No matter where Obama was born he is a NATURAL Born US Citizen in my opinion.

    I beg to differ. I argue that he was not born on this planet what-so-ever, and therefore is not human. Consequentially, this means he can not be President since only humans can be President. Impeach, etc.

    I don't care where he was born or hatched. He is a bad president. He has increased federal spending by 28% and spent more than Bush by 3 times. Get rid of him and recover as fast as we can.

    By the way congress is just as bad.

    Not only that, he dropped out of grade school due to his crack cocaine addiction.

    Americans are born overseas all the time, if one of your parents is American you are automatically an American citizen regardless where you are born.

    QUESTION: Do we know for certain that particular requirement was in effect at the time of Obama's birth?
