Pertains to All, Except Maybe Obama

Recently the newly seated 112th Congress decided to open this current session by reading, verbatim, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Interruptions from the Congressional gallery became apparent when it got to the section concerning citizenship requirements to be President, which is obviously still an issue with many in the Country who believe Obama does not meet this constitutional requirement.

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution says:

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

  1. Does it make me a "Birther" if I believe that he is a citizen, but not a natural born citizen as the constitution dictates? Obama even states that his father is/was a British subject at the time of his (Obama's) birth.
