He is a Kenyan in the sense that his father was a Kenyan. That is all.
The “born in Kenya” story is the height of the loony side of the birther movement. It is based on forgeries like that of Lucas D. Smith, and falsifications–such as the claim that Obama’s Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya—when she actually said right on the same tape that he was born IN HAWAII, and she said in another interview that the first that her family in Kenya had heard of Obama’s birth was in a letter FROM HAWAII.
Lucas D. Smith, a convicted felon, claimed that he went to Kenya and got Obama’s birth certificate at a hospital in Mombasa. But Lucas D. Smith has constantly refused to show proof that he, Smith, had ever gone to Kenya. All that he would have to do would be to show a Kenya stamp on a page of a passport, but Lucas D. Smith has refused to do that, constantly, and he has also constantly refused to say why he will not show that proof.(Moreover, his “birth certificate” uses US date formats [month/day/year] and not the day/month/year format used in Kenya.)
Laying aside for a moment the overwhelming proof that Obama was born in Hawaii, the evidence that Obama was NOT born in Kenya is also very strong. There were a grand total of 21 people who came to the USA from Kenya in 1961. Of these only seven were US citizens. And the birther myth has always been that Obama’s parents went there and returned by plane, but only one person came to the USA from Kenya in 1961 by plane and that person was, wait for it, NOT a US citizen. And Obama’s father did not go to Kenya in 1961 either (making it unlikely that his mother did, since travel late in pregnancy was rare, and even more rare without the husband going along). WND has proved with a FOI Act request that Obama senior stayed in Hawaii throughout 1961.
And the Kenyan government investigated the “born in Kenya” story, and found that it was not true.
“Jon Chessoni, a first secretary at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington, can’t understand why his office gets so many baseless questions about whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya.
“It’s madness,” said Chessoni on Monday.“His father, in 1961, would not even have been in Kenya. When this matter first came up, the Kenyan government did its research and confirmed that these are all baseless claims.””

Obama has a Hawaii birth certificate that says that he was born in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital, and the officials of both parties in Hawaii have confirmed that fact. It is also confirmed by the birth announcement in the Hawaii newspapers in 1961, which were sent to the papers only by the DOH of Hawaii.
Obama’s birth announcement appeared in a section of the newspapers called Health Bureau Statistics. As the name indicates, and as the papers and the DOH also say, ONLY the DOH of Hawaii could send birth notices to the Health Bureau Statistics section of the paper. And the DOH only sent out those notices for children that it had issued birth certificates for, and in 1961 the DOH was not allowed to register the births of children who were not born in Hawaii.
Oh, and there is this:
http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2011/04/kapiol
And, BTW, only 21 people came to the USA from Kenya in 1961, and all but one of them came by SHIP--and there were no regularly scheduled ships from Kenya to Hawaii in 1961.
Ah, but how many came from Kenya using a passport of a different country? How many "embarked" for the last leg of their trip from another country.
You fly from Kenya to a European country and switch planes. That is the way most people get from America to Kenya this very day. No direct flights!!!

Lady, you just explained at great length and with great vigor how the founding fathers wanted only those born here to be President.

Now you are claiming that being born here isn't enough.

Do you have trouble hearing yourself speak? Or is there more than one bat in the belfry?

I will ask you to make this myth work. See if you aren't a bit brighter than your brothers and sisters here.

Here is where birther conspiracy falls apart. I will grant you Kenya, you can have it. Hell, I will grant you every devious detail of the entire conspiracy. Including that he was somehow smuggled into the U.S. as an infant... by air or boat or teleportation, it really does not matter.

Kenyan born Obama was STILL an American citizen. His mother born and raised in Kansas. He was just not naturally born.

What is the only advantage a naturally born citizen has over a regular citizen?

The ability to run for the office of President of the United States.

Hence, for the newspaper birth announcements and the baby smuggling, and the ENTIRE hypothesis to make any sense at all. His mother must have had been fully aware that her son would become President someday.

If she just wanted him in our govt. He could have been a senator. Or speaker of the house, or any other position is the US govt save President.

For there to be MOTIVE... Ann Dunham has to be a clairvoyant. And a thumping deadly accurate one at that.

And THAT Lady, is magic.

So, do you believe in magic? Or can you provide alternative motive?

I mean, I gave you everything. It still doesn't work.

You have gotta be brighter than the rest of the flock. I mean statistically it is almost impossible for you to not be.

Fix it if you can. Or explain to me how I have things wrong.

Sandra Day O'Connor questions court's decision to take Bush v. Gore
April 27, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/c9sy69e
Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor hasn't given much thought to which was the most important case she helped decide during her 25 years on the bench. But she has no doubt which was the most controversial.

It was Bush v. Gore, which ended the Florida recount and decided the 2000 presidential election.

Looking back, O'Connor said, she isn't sure the high court should have taken the case.

"It took the case and decided it at a time when it was still a big election issue," O'Connor said during a talk Friday with the Tribune editorial board. "Maybe the court should have said,'We're not going to take it, goodbye.'"

The case, she said, "stirred up the public" and "gave the court a less-than-perfect reputation."

"Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision," she said. "It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn't done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day."

Cuccinelli casts Virginia election as referendum on Obamacare
By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times, November 2, 2013

WOODBRIDGE — Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli got a boost from two midwestern Republican heavyweights Saturday as he tried to spur his voters to the polls by casting Tuesday’s gubernatorial election as a referendum on President Obama’s health care overhaul.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who grew up in Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker stumped for Mr. Cuccinelli Saturday afternoon after the state’s attorney general started his day in the Richmond area.

Bush Republicans Destroyed America
U.S. job losses worst since 1974 as recession bites
Dec 5, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/5lcvoq
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- U.S. employers axed payrolls by 533,000 jobs in November, the most in 34 years and far more than expected, government data on Friday showed, as the year-old recession hammered every corner of the U.S. economy.
Oil prices and the dollar weakened and U.S. Treasury bond prices rallied on the news that confirms the recession was now hitting activity across the board.
"You can't get much uglier than this. The economy has just collapsed, and has gone into a free fall," said Richard Yamarone, chief economist at Argus Research in New York.
The Labor Department said the unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent last month to the highest reading since 1993, compared with 6.5 percent in October.

Re: "Ah, but how many came from Kenya using a passport of a different country? How many "embarked" for the last leg of their trip from another country."

The answer is very simple. Wait for it. The INS asked people where they had embarked from. They did not base the 21 on passports or the last stop before the person came to the USA. So, only 21 people came from Kenya---and all but one of them came by sea.

"Ah, but" Rougie is pitifully ignorant. "Country of Embarkation" refers to the country from which the trip originated, not the last leg or connecting flights.

Duh!

Does simpleton Rougie ever wonder how some persons flew from Kenya to the US, according to the records from the late '50s and early '60s, when there were NO direct flights?

Although INS asked them where they arrived from, they DID check passports to verify that arriving persons indeed entered the country that they claimed to depart from. Times and dates are entered with the stamp so it was easily verified which country the person actually departed from.

Virginia race seen as crucial election bellwether
AFP By Ivan COURONNE 30 minutes ago
Roanoke (United States)(AFP)- The semi-rural, increasingly diverse state of Virginia elects a new governor Tuesday in the most watched US race of the year, as political parties jockey for supremacy ahead of 2014 and 2016 elections.
Politicians, pollsters and analysts are eager to see if the state's dramatic demographic transformation will scrape out a win for Democrats or whether its southern traditional values boosted by Tea Party conservatism will carry the day.
The election across the Potomac River from Washington is a barometer of the popularity of the two major US political parties -- as well as that of the turbulent, conservative Tea Party movement that has upended national politics in recent years.
On the right, 45-year-old Ken Cuccinelli, the state's anti-abortion, pro-gun Republican attorney general and Tea Party darling who was the first in the nation to mount a legal challenge against President Barack Obama's health care reforms in 2010.
On the left, Democrat Terry McAuliffe, 56, a party insider who has never held elected office but whose business savvy and political pragmatism -- and his status as close friend to the Clintons -- have helped him emerge as the pre-election favorite.

2. Frenchies? Where? The Nado's you mean? Where'd you read this in your "opinion piece"?

3. Scenario. A job fair. This guy Ken Cuccinelli, is applying for the dog catcher's job. "Name, qualifications", asks the job interviewer : "Ken Cuccinelli, tea party member, anti-abortion NRS member and pro-gun Republican". "Next", barks the interviewer.
