Evidently a bunch of corrupt power brokers then. He wasn't born to two American/US citizens, therefore not a natural born citizen. A must, to be president of The United States. Read the constitution, and see.<quoted text>
If I may butt in, it was indeed debunked, and that includes the complete list you supplied, by 197 judges, 9 judges of the Supreme Court, 485 lawmakers in the House and Senate, 195 countries, McCain, Palin, the whole Bush family, Grove, Rumsfeld, "shoot me in the face Cheney", Powell, Romney, Ryan, all 50 governors, etc. Hmmmm, starting to feel alone, lonely, awwww, Braindeadlintards? "Look at me in the parade, Ma, I'm the only in step", dixit Braindeadlintards.
And it is this rule, pure and simple, which it is asserted determined citizenship of the United States during the entire period prior to the passage of the act of April 9, 1866, and the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, and governed the meaning of the words "citizen of the United States" and "natural-born citizen" used in the Constitution as originally framed and adopted.

Before the Revolution, the view of the publicists had been thus put by Vattel:
The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation, and it is presumed as matter of course that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children, and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.
