Is knowing your father a requirement to be POTUS? What if you met him once? Knew him for a few years? Never knew him at all?

The two men will never be matched in a presidential election. If they were, I think Obama would win overwhelmingly. It is not illegal or immoral to live overseas, and Herbert Hoover did so for decades (in fact, he and his wife spoke Chinese to each other in the White House).
It's not Presidential to lie and cheat. No one is more corrupt than Barack Obama.

Was he a Cuban Citizen when Ted was born (he certainly wasn't a US citizen at the time - neither were Jindall's parents when he was born). doesn't that create an issue in Birfistan? Or are you happy being a hypocrite?

Why does the citizenship of Obama's father matter if Ted's dad doesn't?

<quoted text>Barack Obama's father was never a citizen of the United States,not even for one day. Ted Cruz's father is a United States citizen who migrated to the United States before Ted Cruz was even born. Barack Obama's mother loved the United States so much that she never lived here for more than a few years as an adult. Barack Obama is the son of a Kenyan British subject who lived his informative years in Indonesia before moving in with his grandparents. How can anyone compare the Barack Obama to Ted Cruz? Ted Cruz is ten times the man Obama could ever be.
Ted Cruz's dad didn't become a u.s. citizen til 2005.When ted was BORN his father was a CUBAN(not american),his mother was an American,and he was born in a foreign country but Obama was born in America....fact

There are children that lose their father in the military when they are very young or never meet the father or even lose their parents in a lethal accident. Obama's history is not that. Obama went to Indonesia with his mother at a very young age because that was his mothers choice. Children may not be able to choose their parents or their history,but adults that choose dishonesty,lies,and corruption do it themselves and are responsible for their lies. Obama has never had one day in his adult life that he hasn't told a lie.

I think you'll find that Cuba stripped Ted's dad of citizenship when he defected. Technically I don't believe he held citizenship anywhere at the time if Ted's birth.

Barack Obama's father 'never' immigrated to the United States. Barack Obama's father was 'never' a citizen of The United States. Barack Obama's father was a visitor to the United States,making Barack Obama the son of a Kenyan British Subject. There are certain privileges to immigrating to the United States. An immigrant to the United States can not be eligible to serve the office of POTUS, but his son can. Why should a 'visitor' be able to have that privilege?

Even if true this has no impact on eligibility to be POTUS. Further - if your complaint is with the quality of parenting then you should find another forum

Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948.

Therefore 'your' pRez obama
IS
a British subject!

Country/citizenship of his father - British
Country/citizenship of his mother(*?)- American

At best - DUAL citizen
A DUAL citizen CAN NOT BE president of the United States. His "allegiance" can ONLY BE to ONE country.

*
She "expatriated" herself from the US at some point.

British Nationality Act 1948

***There has BEEN rumor he was born 'out of wedlock'

23Legitimated children

(1)A person born out of wedlock and legitimated by the subsequent marriage of his parents shall, as from the date of the marriage or of the commencement of this Act, whichever is later, be treated, for the purpose of determining whether he is a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies, or was a British subject immediately before the commencement of this Act, as if he had been born legitimate.

Because it is the law.

What if Ted's dad never became a US citizen? He certainly didn't seem to be in a great hurry. Ted wasn't the son of a US Citizen (father) until 8 years ago. Did he magically gain allegiance then? I thought Natural Born made reference to status at birth - not at age 34

Can you think of one thing that Obama has said that wasn't a lie. Obama said that if you like you insurance,you can keep it. Obama said that he would never sign a bill that didn't have bipartisan support. Obama said that the first time he heard about Fast and Furious, is when it was on the news. Obama said that the first time he heard about Benghazi was when he saw it on the news. Obama lied about ending war, taxes,ACORN,his father serving in WWII,about giving the public five days to look at the health care bill before he signed it, Does Obama really think that United States citizens can believe anything he says?
