Not Qualified?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Let me see here. In my copy of the "Constitution of The United States", Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5, it states" 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 the age of thirty-five years and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."

I know that you are aware of this because of your patriotic fervor and your own copy of the Constitution that you refer to. I have checked the record and I cannot find ANYTHING that states that he has not met these qualifications. He is 46 years old. Was born in Honolulu Hawaii in 1961, BTW, Hawaii had been made a state in 1959. And has lived in the United States since 1971. What source do you quote to make such an unfounded claim?
