Talk:Obama citizenship denial
Does anyone think this is related to 2012 apocalypse? (As in there isn't going to be a next presidential election, so they are f***ed if they don't kick him out now?) ThiehTK = Terry Koeckritz 17:23, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
You guys do realize Inside Edition said something about this right? Something to check out.
- Old debunked stuff is old. First, it is adressed in the article. Secondly, adressing the video in question, according to the AP photo of the school registration page, Obama was listed as an Indonesian citizen, and as Barry Soetoro. However, note also that according to that same photo, Obama’s birthplace was listed as Hawaii. Thus, to the extent anyone wants to rely on this document as evidence of any alleged Indonesian adoption, its clear statement that Obama was born in Hawaii deserves the same weight. Also, this. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:50, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
Proof of citizenship
'Follow the money': becoming POTUS is expensive; if it was proved that BO was not a natural born inhabitant of the US (are 'test tube babies' and similar excluded from being President?) than there would be an awful lot of aggrieved contributors #and also# the tax people would be chasing them up as 'tax deductions for campaign contributions' would no longer be valid (and 'all that accumulated interest on late payment of fines').
Who started the rumor
According to snopes.com's investigation, the Obama citizenship denial started on right-wing blogs before it showed up in Clinton supporters' emails. Source: http://www.snopes.com/hillary-clinton-started-birther-movement/
- Politico mentions an Andy Martin,
frequent loserperennial candidate, as the "founder" of the conspiracy theory. The New York Times and Washington Post have stated this as well. Brainiac3397 (talk) 21:59, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Why didn't the birthers try and push through some legislation to clarify the birth status of 'the President' in general?
