This Could be trouble for big O, “The One”.
I have dual citizenship (U.S. and Irish), but I am a natural-born American citizen.
Whether Obama is or is not a natural-born citizen hinges entirely on his having been born in Hawaii—and so far, he’s provided no evidence that he was.
Maybe this is what Hillary is waiting for? With this information, she’ll get the nomination ...
or maybe Hillary already knew this information
Doesn't say anything about dual citizens not being eligible.
Wouldn't a kerfluffel about his citizenship work to the benefit of clinton at the convention? (I do not think that dual citizenship would constitutionally make him ineligible for the presidency - if he was born in the USA)
He may be natural-born, but from what I understand the president cannot have dual-citizenship. That’s what would disqualify him.
I would be shocked if that was true although it would make sense.
Hopefully, because she will lose without the Obamamaniacs.
“Section 90 of the Constitution of Kenya:
A Person born outside Kenya after 11th December, 1963 shall become a citizen of Kenya at the date of his/her birth if at that date his/her father was a citizen of Kenya”
He’s not a Kenyan citizen, unfortunately.
Now the birth certificate forgery, I’d like to see proof that the COLB is genuine. That’s something that should be explored.
So if, say, North Korea decided to make John McCain a citizen to show their interest in making peace with the US, would that disqualify him?
Shouldn't the person have to -do- something to acknowledge/accept the citizenship>
If Kenya requires a loyalty oath to become a citizen, Obama may have forfeited his US citizenship. I have always heard that you cannot have dual citizenship when the other country requires an oath of loyalty.
Right, but this seems to be based solely on the Kenyan constitution, not on anything he ever did himself.
I agree, stick with the birth certificate. Possible forgery trumps everything, including birthplace.
Furthermore, if this rumor is true, it would make great campaign fodder even if he is still eligible to serve as President.
I think Hillary could win by picking up more independent voters. And women would flock to her, more reliable voters than Obamaniacs who might be too strung out on whatever they snort to get to the polls.
“This could be big trouble [for O’Bama].”
You’re right. ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ sucks.
Remember there was that same issue with Kerry and the question that he also held French citizenship? Nothing much came of it, but a lot was said. I hope, this time, if this is true, there is a lot of attention to this. You cannot proclaim allegiance to the flag of one country and swear to protect it, if you are also a citizen of another. Come to think of it, now we have a clue of why Obama didn’t wear a flag lapel pin, put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem was played, and does not regularly have the Pledge of Allegiance said at his campaigns (until someone complains!).
Weren’t the first Presidents citizens of both England and the United States?
Maybe, maybe not constitutionally but make no mistake, it would cost him the presidency if it is true.
