    I think he was allowed dual citizenship since he had parents from both countries. I read somewhere he had to make a choice at like 18 or something.

    I wonder what Kenya was planning on doing with those T-72 tanks and other heavy stuff that the Ukraine was sending them (before the pirates took over the ship)?

    He is NOT from Kenya - why is this mis-truth continually perpetuated here??? He is an American citizen, born in Hawaii with a birth cert and even a birth announcement in the newspaper to prove it.

    Maybe I should put an ad in the paper announcing that I am a millionaire, then maybe it will make it true. Nahhhh,,,I will still be poor.

    So Obama's parents had this plotted since 1961 when they falsified the birth announcement in the local paper?

    I guess that is a possibility. It would show astounding foresight.

    If they were concerned about his future citizenship status, then yes, it is entirely possible that they did everything they could to ensure that his citizenship was secure.

    Mexicans do it here every day.

    I used to see conspiracies everywhere. Even this would have been a stretch for me.

    Is there any scrape of evidence, other than suspicion, that he was born in Kenya?

    Are you suggesting that the Prime Minister of Kenya did not say this?

    Are you suggesting he did say this? Where is your proof. Where is your credible link?

    This idea is too foolish to research.

    It wasn't the Prime Minister of Kenya, it was former congressman Walter Fauntroy.

    It happened in June so someone or some bot had to do some serious digging just to find this insignificant story.

    Here is the story in a Kenyan Real Estate website that re-publishes articles from The Daily Nation (Nairobi) that charges to view archived articles. (search under Walter Fauntroy).

    It looks like the wnd quoted portion is relatively intact, but missing some context and contains a distortion of the reception of those words.

    The choppiness looks to me like a butchered translation somewhere along the way. But even if the quote was accurate, I think it is pretty obvious that Fauntroy meant that Obama has roots in Kenya through his father and his presidency would increase Kenya's global importance through that association and relationship.

    Obama's African relatives are from Kenya. His father was from Kenya. His grandmother lives in Kenya. Why do defenders of Obama have an issue with those facts?

    Roger, does the OP have anything to do with Obama being born in Kenya? I didn't read that in there.

    I'm not voting for Obama.

    But I don't much get the concept of making non-issues, issues.

    As I've said, ad nauseum, let's vote up or down on issues, not WND rumors. All this does is discredit legitimate reasons to not vote for Obama.

    No one has to have a problem with these facts. What do they matter.

    According to our laws, if one parent is a citizen in the country for more than XXX years then the child is a natural citizen even if born in a foreign country. His mother was clearly a citizen so Obama is a natural citizen.

    We are not at war with Kenya that I know of so his Kenyan roots don't matter. Do they?

    It's not unusual for there to be birth announcements in other cities or states news papers then where a baby was actually born, if the family has friends and family in that city or state. An announcement in the news paper is not proof of anything. We get stuff in our local paper all the time, someone had a baby, someone died, someone graduated from college, etc. and they don't live here, but 5 states away.

    I don't think it matters to obama where he was born, he obviously feels in close kinship with kenya, and according to his past it makes abig difference to him and what he thinks and beleives. As we saw with his africa focused not Jesus focused church, according to him this si what drew him to it.

    I don't get your point, I have a Vietnamese friend who also feels close to his kinship but I don't hold that against him. He was drafted as an American and sent to Vietnam where he fought for his country. He is a Vietnamese American. How about the Irish or German American's? Latinos? What about Southerner's who still fly the confederate flag? :laugh:

    Saying he is close to his kinship is more confirming the normal than something we should be concerned about. Also, why can't he focus on both Africa and the Church? I agree he's had some bad Bible teaching but if he believes in the Lord Jesus Christ as his Saviour, he is saved.
