BTW - dual nationality has nothing to do with dual citizenship.
Nationality is a characteristic of birth and parentage, while citizenship is a political liberty.

A Canadian national can become a U.S. citizen, and remain a Canadian national.

An American national can become a citizen in a foreign country and remain American (nationality).

sarcasm is hard to tell on a forums (unless the tags are there, or followed by a smilie). otherwise the post comes off a typical repeat long debunked birther claims

Many American Born Chinese, call China their homeland.
Italians who were born here regularly call Italy the home country, Polish people too, it's common among first or second generation american born citizens because they grow up hearing about the "home country" from family members.

I would find this whole birther thing just plain silly, but it gets crazy when people start believing and spreading flat out lies like "Obama's grandmother said she held him at birth in Kenya," the transcripts clearly show she said he was born in the US, and she was in Kenya when he was born, she never held him, or said anything remotely like that.

Here's the bottom line folks. If hussein obama's sheep completely believed he was a natural born citizen and have zero questions about his eligibility to be president, this subject would be a moot point. Instead they react with fear of people questiong hussein obama's citizenship and with states passing laws that proof must be provided to be on a ballot.

So what's scaring you lefties? No real faith?

I never took a logic course, but that's faulty reasoning if I ever saw it. Some people just like facts, of which "Obama was born in Kenya" is not.

It is a "moot point."

Debunking birther lies /= fear of birther lies. My only problem with the states that are trying to pass birther bills is that almost every single one of them are unconstitutional. Unlike birthers, I care a great deal about our Constitution, and I don't like seeing state legislators blatantly ignoring it in an attempt to advance their bizarre and long debunked conspiracy theory.

By the way, your dog whistle is showing.

We lefties accept creditable evidence that clearly back up the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii. Birthers use the smoke and mirrors approach and have been brainwashed into believing the moon is made of green cheese, so to speak. A birth certificate authenticated by the state of Hawaii would pass any state law requiring proof of being born in the U.S.A. Nothing to fear here.

You don't have to be a "leftie," or even like Obama to realize this birther stuff is absurd, and pointing out absurdity is not the same as being afraid of it, far from it.

Since you are so sure that the citizenship listed on his Occidental enrollment forms has been debunked, or whatever you people call it, how about posting it here for me to see, since I have never seen that one and won't because you can't let things like that go. We have Truth in Information about nuclear bombs but not about things of real importance like this. Why?

However, what was his nation of citizenship at the time he enrolled in Occidental College? Somehow, I don't remember anything about that one being made public in all that debunking you people talk about.
