You would still be incorrect... depending on YOUR interpretation of the US Constitution
I give, you win! I AM INCORRECT. INCORRECT I SAY! INCORRECT AM I. INCORRESTNESS PERMEATES THE WHOLE OF MY BEING. According to the contorted technicalities of British law (screw the intent of the framers) I recognize that The One truly is as American as Geo Washington...perhaps more so since Washington was born to TWO British immigrants (assuming there was no British law in the mid 18th century regarding nationality of legitimate or bastard children born in the British colonies henceforth to be called party of the first part). All vestiges of Geo Washington shall be stricken and replaced with the image of Baraq the Magnificent, including but not limited to, Quarters and Dollar bills. Washington DC shall now and forever more be known as Barryville. The Washington monument shall be renamed the Obamalisk. Apple pie shall now be known as Hussein pie. Curse thee vile George, long live Baraq the Magnificent!
Actually my interpretation of the Constitution would involve an imaginary conversation with Thomas Jefferson. It would go something like this..."Mr. Jefferson, the people of the United States elected as President a Mulatto born of an American female child of 17 years, sired by a Kenyan citizen loyal to the British Crown. Do you sir believe him to be eligible to preside over these United States?" Tom replies, "Pray let me thinketh upon the subject...(three seconds pass)... "Hell NO!"
ANY definition of natural born citizen other than "born of two American citizens" is a death sentence for America. Millions of children born on our soil of citizens of Mexico and elsewhere become eligible to rule us and at that point THE CONSTITUTION SAYS WHAT THEY AND THEIR APPOINTED COURT SAY IT SAYS! The end of America draws nigh, killed by lawyers and twisters of truth.

Facts are facts and case law is case law. Right now, there is no way to know how it would come down if someone was trying to throw out a sitting President based on the fact that he was born in the US out of wedlock in 1961 and one parent was a British Citizen- assuming anyone could ever get it far enough for the decision- which as we have seen..is not going to happen while Obama is President.
