The noted Hawaiian, of course, is President Barack Obama.

1. Before anybody objects, I think it was funny, a respectful joke. (nt)

2. I agree
It's also a subtle in-yer-face to the birthers.

SUMMARY: On NPR, Cokie Roberts asserted that Sen. Barack Obama's vacation to Hawaii "makes him seem a little bit more exotic," and characterized Hawaii as "a somewhat odd place to be doing it," despite also asserting, "I know that he is from Hawaii, he grew up there, his grandmother lives there." Roberts previously criticized Obama on ABC's This Week, stating that Obama's vacation in Hawaii "has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place."

10. Hawaii is not part of "real America"

Hawaiians are practically foreigners.

And since Hawaii was not part of the US in 1789, persons born there cannot have been within the original intent of "natural born citizen".
