    How can obama be president if he is not a natural born citizen.

    A natural born citizen is one that both parents are u.s. citizens. His father is citizen of U.K. . IF he was born in Hawaii, he would only be a citizen. To hold the office of president he must be a natural born citizen.

    Only one parent has to be American and have lived in the USA and the child has to be born on US soil.

    neither parent need be a citizen. Ask those who cross the Mexican border to give birth here. they know it becomes a U.S. citizen. that baby is a natural born in the United States.

    OK, this is getting ridiculous. We will have al-Qaeda running the US soon if we do not undo the damage to the 14th amendment because our courts decided the wording was vague so they fixed it to allow anyone to become president if they're born on US soil. An American president should have at least one legal American parent. It's time to stand up and fight to keep America, American. This whole natural born loose law makes me sick. Next they won't even have to be born here or live here. Just buy a birth certificate. What the hell, we're half way to that already.

    Colleen please see my quote above directly from the Constitution.

    I see that but I also know natural born and naturalized citizen are two different things. A naturalized citizen can not be president.
    You are considered a natural born citizen when you are born on us soil, or territory, ships, planes etc. It doesn't matter where your parents are citizens.

    Thanks bro.
    READ THE CONSTITUTION FOR GOSH SAKES!!!!!!!!!!! BOTH PARENTS HAVE TO BE CITIZENS OF THE US AND YOU HAVE TO BE BORN IN THE UNITED STATES TO BE A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN!!!!!!! OBAMA IS NOT A PRESIDENT OF ANYTHING. HE IS NOT ELIGABLE TO BE PRESIDENT!!!!! HE NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED AND THROWN IN PRISON FOR FRAUDING AMERICA!!! THE PEOPLE THAT ALLOWED HIM TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT ALSO NEED TO BE THROWN IN PRISON WITH HIM!!!!
    only cause his "birth certificate" was naturaly born here

    LOL, I like that.
    You know, there are so many interpretations it hard to find a 100% definate answer. I dont think anybody really knows. Whatever the ruling, its not going to change anything.
    evidently it does http://uspolitics.about.com/od/politicaljunkies/a/natural_citizen.htm

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. AMENDMENT XIV, SECTION 1 UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. now, dang it, give it a rest. this is a direct quote. look it up.

    crossing the border to have a baby only makes them a citizen.They can vote, get benefits, but, the parents must still be U.S. citizens to be for child to be natural born citizen. The way i understand it. Maybe its only one parent. Who knows. Birth certificates are changed all the time. I have two under totally different names.. That was back in 1961.

    you are so wrong. the parents do not have to be a US citizen. if born in a state of the US the child is considered a "NATURAL BORN CITIZEN"!!!!!!!!!!!
