Obama was born in Hawai’i ~ which a few argue was/is not part of the United States

20080313-Obama-Mccain-Natural-US-Citizens

According to The Honolulu Advertiser, a handful of people are arguing that Barack Obama, who was born in 1961 (three years after Hawai’i became a state), was not born in the United States.

This argument is similar to the nonsense that a very small number of people are spreading about John McCain.  Can we please move beyond these petty ideas that they’re not citizens because of a technicality?

Both are natural citizens.  Neither one had to take the citizenship test or the oath of citizenship.  They both had at least one American parent who declared the intention to have the child take on their citizenship.  They’re both good to go.

Next issue.
