"Birther" question

Doesn't the fact that Barack's mother was a USA citizen automatically make him a USA citizen NO MATTER where he was born?

In no way do I doubt he was born in Hawaii but c'mon...isn't this a fact?

Am I missing something here?

2. Yes, but they want to pretend otherwise.
There's some law they point to that would have required his mother to have been inside the country and over a certain age for 5 years IF he hadn't been born inside the country. But he WAS, so the details of that law, whatever they are, are moot.

6. I 100% agree he was born here. But the nutjobs use the 16 year old argument. n-t

5. You are missing one thing
Well actually the opposite, if you were missing brain cells or were a racist you would not be able to comprehend the basic facts you stated.

13. No, it doesn't. A natural born citizen is not the same as a native born citizen.
The fact that his mother is an American citizen automatically makes him a natural one.

10. I posted in another thread, get ready for the claim that she wasn't his real
mother, just part of the coverup. If the 'no matter where he was born if his mother is an Amercian' argument, then I have no doubt that would be their next tactic.
