the state of kansas is an embarrassment.

"A Manhattan man was scheduled to argue before state officials Thursday afternoon that President Obama's name should not be allowed on the November general election ballot.

The appeal by Joe Montgomery was to be heard by The Kansas Board of Objections, a three-person body that resolves ballot-eligibility issues. The board is comprised of Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Atty. Gen. Derek Schmidt. All three are Republicans.

In material filed with the Secretary of State's office, Montgomery argues that Obama's name should be stricken from the ballot because he does not meet the constitutional requirement that candidates have been "born in this country to parents who are both U.S. citizens, primarily to a U.S. citizen father."

Obama signed the NDAA and is currently fighting in court to keep in place. Whoever supports this guy is ignorant, and doesn't like freedom.

Not if Mitt's dad was a US citizen when Mitt was born. Barack's father was not and is not a US citizen. Barack is a citizen, but not a natural-born citizen. His daughters would be natural-born citizens because both parents were US citizens at the time they were born.

It was established early on in America that those born on US soil were 'natural born citizens' regardless of their parents original nationality. Many of the colonialists were born in other countries and there was no naturalization procedure at that time.
