Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: You must be a "NATURAL BORN US CITIZEN TO BE PRESIDENT

Senator Obama was born of a United States citizen from Kentucky in Honolulu on August 4th, 1961. He is a natural born American by virtue of parentage as well as by birth in a US state. Hawaii had become a state in 1959. Google "fight the smears" or go to barackobama.com to see a copy of the original birth certificate or call Honolulu for the birth records office. Or check the state department for a copy of his passport application. Senator McCain was born in Coco Solo, Panama on August 29th, 1936. Although he is not a natural born American by virtue of his place of birth like Obama is, he does qualify for presidency because like Obama he has at least one parent who is a US citizen. More stats: Place of birth aside, Barack placed 895 in his class of 899 at Anapolis. Barack Obama attended Columbia then Harvard law school and was president of the Law Review of the greatest university in the US. George Bush had a C- average, Clinton was a Rhode scholar. See a pattern here? God bless the USA Vote intelligently Vote for intelligence
