Do you believe Obama was born here? Are you a “Birther”?

Question by anotherone773: Do you believe Obama was born here? Are you a “Birther”?
You know one of the people that think Obama wasn’t born in the US. I really cannot see how someone can believe in this “birther” movement when a little( literally) research will tell you that is an American:

Some facts:

* “Dunham was born in St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, Kansas[7] as the only child of Madelyn Lee Payne and Stanley Armour Dunham” – Obama’s mother was born in the US.

* “On August 21, 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state to be admitted into the Union. Dunham’s parents sought business opportunities in the new state, and after graduating from high school in 1960, Dunham and her family moved to Hawaii. Dunham soon enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa.”

*While attending a Russian language class, Dunham met Barack Obama, Sr., the school’s first African student. At the age of 23, Obama had come to Hawaii to pursue his education”

*Dunham and Obama were married on the Hawaiian island of Maui on February 2, 1961, despite parental opposition from both families. Dunham was three months pregnant at the time of her marriage.”

*Obama Sr.’s and Dunham’s son, Barack Hussein Obama II, was born on 4 August 1961. Dunham quit her studies to care for the baby, while Obama Sr. completed his degree. He graduated from the University of Hawaii in June 1962 (and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa)

* “After her divorce, Dunham married Indonesian student Lolo Soetoro, who was attending college in Hawaii. When Suharto, a military leader in Soetoro’s home country, came to power in 1967, all Indonesian students studying abroad were recalled, and the family moved to the Menteng neighborhood of Jakarta.[18][19] From ages six to ten, Obama attended local schools in Jakarta, including Besuki Public School and St. Francis of Assisi School.[20][21]

In 1971, Obama returned to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents, Madelyn and Stanley Armour Dunham, and attended Punahou School, a private college preparatory school, from the fifth grade until his graduation from high school in 1979.”

Requirements for the Office of President
- Must be 35 years old or older
- Must have been born in the US or both parents must be US Citizens.
- Must have lived in the US 14 years.

* Obama is over 35 = Check
* Obama has lived in the US at least 14 years = Check
* Obama was born in the US = Check.

How do i know Obama was born in the US?

- Both parents were attending the University of Hawaii before and after he was born. So unless they had made a trip to Kenya real fast in August before the fall semester started he was born here. She wouldn’t of been able to travel overseas being that close to term anyway nor did she have ANY reason to go to Kenya. Her only tie to Kenya was Obama’s father who was basically an exchange student.

- There is no mention in any documents anywhere of Ann Dunham( Obama’s Mother) EVER going to Kenya. Therefore it is unreasonable to believe that she was ever in Kenya.

- Obama went to Indonesia when he was 6 and came home at the age of 10.

I did not need any legal documents to figure this out. You can put together a time-line of Obama’s life with information available on the internet and plainly see that he was indeed born in the US and that he lived here for over 14 years of his life.

This makes him qualified to be president.

My question is: As a birther are you going to ignore common sense so you can keep claiming he is not qualified for president?






wiki isn’t reliable as a news source? Wiki isn’t a news source and it definitely about 100 times more reliable than a news source. In case people don’t know this but Wiki is very accurate. The content is checked for accuracy daily and every article must have sources of the information( you know all those little numbered footnotes at the bottom. Those are sources).

Wiki is not reliable is parroting of people who don’t know anything about how an encyclopedia works.
@ Eugene: That is funny because both me and my g/f are/have been in college. College professors have no problem with Wikipedia as a source. Professor trumps high school teacher.
@ Libs hate: No other president in the last 100 years has had to make public private information. The people who need to verify he can be president have seen the required documents. Do you see GOP congressmen going around saying Obama shouldn’t be president? No. You wonder why that is? Why is it the people that would have the most to gain politically from Obama not being qualified don’t say a word about his credentials? Because they know he is qualified and they do not want to look like a fool and kill their political career.

i dont care but wiki isnt reliable as a news source.

although i do use it its other peoples postings which makes it sort of not reliable

Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. If elected, he would be the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother’s side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father’s side. While Barack Hussein Obama’s father was from Kenya , his father’s family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama’s father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father’s birth certificate even states he’s Arab, not African Negro).

    I don’t know if he was.

    But then you got to think….does the name Barack Obama sound American to you? Makes me suspicious.

    Why bother with details…

    The Obama hate runs DEEP and nothing will convince the haters…

    Fortunately, they still represent a minority and Obama will likely be re-elected in 2012…

    Only fools, racist and or those still sore that their political party didn’t garnish the Oval Office are birthers at this point.

    Wow. Now I’m not certain he was ever even born.

    there is such a simple and easy solution to prove to us that 0bama was indeed born in the US. however, for some strange reason, 0bama is keeping his birth certificate in hiding.

  6. 0

    Research leaves a lot of questions. Obama is hiding something. He won’t cooperate. Why should anyone believe anything he says. He lies about everything. I am a birther .It wouldn’t matter if he was born in DC and dumped at the steps of teh White House, He is clearly incompetent and he is not qualified to be president.

    thats great you fell for this garbage. i know for a fact that obama is a kenyan, i have seen his birth certificate from kenya, now go away
    EDIT; i hate to tell you but obama is at least 60 yrs old not 49 like he wants us to believe

    What I care about is having an American as President.
    Regardless of where he was born, Obama is NOT an American at heart.
    It is up to American voters to keep all Socialist Communist Marxist types at bay and Far from Washington DC.

    I didn’t read what you said, but i think that Obama is born in the U.S. Wiki leaks didn’t say anything against the fact that he was born in the U.S. Wiki leaks is a better source than wikipedia.

    Until the day the proof is presented, there is no reason to ever think he was actually born here. If he was, he wouldn’t be holding back the proof.

    0bama = Kenyan and illegal President who should be impeached and tried for treason.

    I’m still waiting to see a birth certificate…from a foreign country…that shows he was born outside the US. Can any birthers produce evidence of one?

  12. 0

    Republicans are trying everything they can to destroy Obama. I am sure he is a u.s. citizen.

    Your facts are not fact ! Wikipedia is not even allowed as a reference for research in our local high school because it is not reliable !

    It is a fact however that he has spent a couple of million dollars keeping his records hidden ! Has to be a really big reason ! We also know he attend occidential college with a scholarship for foreign students only ! Where he was listed as Kenyan !

  14. 0

    Your research is very impressive, but it would not surprise me if all that is ignored in order to keep the rumor alive. Birthers need to get a life!

    I think he was probably born here, but I do question why he is so adamantly against showing his actual birth certificate. It’s certainly not due to privacy constraints, which is the reason most private citizens would choose not to do so. Any private information which could usually be garnered from a birth certificate is already public knowledge in the case of a President. What could possibly be the reason for not wanting to release it, knowing that if it’s legitimate, he will in one fell swoop quiet a segment of his critics and make them look foolish?

    Call me a conspiracy theorist if you wish, but there’s something fishy there.

    A hospital in Hawaii under u.s. Congress summons, refused to produce an authentic birth certificate.
    A U.S. judge ordered the record
    What the judge received looked like nothing compared to the birth certificates issued at that time of Obama’s claimed birth.
    The image the court received was blurred and specific vital data and document structure from other certificates issued in that era were completely different.
    The judge ruled that there was not sufficient grounds to stop the election, but he also said that a lot of questions remain.
    No proof leaving “no” doubts has ever been produced.
    Having received several requests using the freedom of information act, the Hawaiian hospital still refuses to release anything.

    For a republican, Obama can’t possibly be an American, because:
    1. he’s not a republican
    2. he’s not white (or a “half breed”)
    3. he’s a liberal
    4. he’s a democrat
    5. he married a black woman with a big booty
    6. he believes even poor people are human
    7. he does not worship at the altar of the rich
    8. his black minister said angry things about America (even though white Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell said the same things)

    that’s fine. Just don’t question our next nominee. Maybe it will be Arnold and we won’t let you see his college records or his documentation either. Let me put it another way. If a republican president went to school at an all boys catholic school in Italy for most of his life than came back to America and announced he was an atheist would you believe him? I think not.

    Can somebody tell me the exact name of the hospital in Hawaii where little Barry boy was delivered?

    Was it Queens Medical Center in Honolulu? Or was it Kapi’olani Center for Women and Children in Honolulu?

    This particular detail in the “official” narrative of little Barry boy HAS changed at least once over the past two plus years.

    If it was Queens Medical Center, or if it was Kapi’olani Center for Women and Children, then why won’t either one of these hospitals just proclaim the distinction of being the birthplace of such a “historic” figure as little Barry boy? Why won’t either one of these places at least put up a commemorative plaque on the wall in their lobby or whatever?

    To sincerely believe that Obama is NOT a legitimate American citizen born on US soil is to suggest that out of 179 House and 41 Senate Republicans not ONE of them has the intelligence or drive to bring the evidence to the full Congress and have the matter addressed…

    Ergo, EITHER he is a legitimate President and was born on American soil OR every elected Republican is an incompetent fool…..now I am no big fan of the GOP, but which of those seems more likely to you? LOL!

    Where he was born is irrelevant. Obama’s citizenship status at birth was also governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948. This means he has held dual citizenship’s in his lifetime. Therefore, he could never be considered a “natural born citizen” of the United States. This also means is should have been disqualified when seeking the office of the presidency of the United States.

  22. 0

    I believe he was born here in the US, these birthers don’t like it when you tell them facts!

    “College professors have no problem with Wikipedia as a source. Professor trumps high school teacher. ”

    HAHA! I hate it when people say Wikipedia ISN’T (oops I said is before edit) reliable! Check the source and make sure it matches, then it’s all good!

  23. 0

    Wikipedia isn’t allowed is schools because they want students to learn how to do their own research, not because it isn’t accurate.

    Birthers don’t want Obama to be president and have latched on to this conspiracy because it furthers their idea that he’s “not one of us.” Their “facts” are rumors that have been repeatedly debunked. Show them actual records and they claim conspiracy. And the whole two citizen parents thing? Complete nonsense. I’m amazed at how some of the rumors mutate.

    Kapi’olani actually HAS said Obama was born there. (It’s in the program and speeches from their anniversary dinner.) The single time Queens was cited was in a school publication, by some kid who has explained that he assumed that was the hospital. (Both are named for Hawaiian queens.) Obama HAS published his Hawaii proof of birth in the only format Hawaii has issued since 2001. He published this more than 2 years ago. And Obama is part Arab? Huh? Not all African Muslims like his father are Arab. Obama Sr. was Luo.
