I believe that Obama does NOT qualify to be the president of the United States. This is, even if he was born here. His father was not born here, and he went to school in Indonesia at a time when Indonesia required citizenship and did not allow duo citizenship.

As an American, I believe that the U.S. Constitution needs to be upheld.

As you mentioned on today's show, I feel that it is a good idea for every state to make laws that would hold the states accountable to citizens to qualify anyone who wants to be on the voting ballot for president. Here is the web-page address that has the proposed bill that I submitted to my state senator:

And for the record, I think that Erick Erickson showed a lack of good judgment in what he did.

One clarification to Debra's great comment.

Obama's parents(dad) did not have to be born here. They just needed to be a U.S. Citizen, BOTH, at the time of Obama's birth, for Obama to be a "natural born Citizen."

We know from 4 SCOTUS rulings that "all children born in the country of parents who were its citizens... " make up the “natural born Citizen” category. The SCOTUS says that there have never been any doubts as to the status of these children. As to children born in the U.S. to parents who were not U.S. citizens at the time of their birth, there have been doubts. In other words, "natural born Citizen" under this formulation requires two generations of U.S. citizens, one generation in the parents and the other in the child himself/herself who also must be born on U.S. soil. It is important to understand that we are focusing on what is a "natural born Citizen" under Article II which specifies the requirements to be President and not on what a "Citizen" is under the 14th Amendment or under some Congressional Act which does not relate to the Article II of our Constitution regarding natural born Citizenship.

Obama, while having his mother's U.S. citizenship generation, is missing that of his father's, for his father was a British subject/citizen at the time of his birth. He therefore cannot be a "natural born Citizen," even if the presumptive president was born in Hawaii. Which he; by the way, is not ready, willing nor able to prove in court, under oath.

This is a Constitutional issue... NOT a Political issue nor a Conspiracy theory!

Thank you for that clarification, ORYR (ObamaRelease YourRecords).
