Up to now I have not been a 'birther'. I am still not a birther if by the term one means someone who attaches a lot of importance to the issue
of the validity of the Certificate of Live Birth that Obama put on his website which purportedly shows that he was born in Hawaii.
Since Obama has himself indicated in his website during the 2008 campaign that his father was a British subject at the time of Obama's birth, that is proof enough for me that he does not meet the constitutional qualification of "Natural Born Citizen" to be President of the United States. The reason is simply that Barack Hussein Obama automatically acquired his father's status as a British subject NO MATTER WHERE HE WAS BORN. As a British subject, Barack is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States.
That said, I find it interesting that the contention of the Obamamaniacs that because his purported birth in Hawaii was announced in the newspaper in Hawaii within a week of his birth (wherever that birth ocurred) that is proof of his birth in Hawaii. Watch this video and you will learn that anyone could register in Hawaii the birth of ANYONE born ANYWHERE in the world in 1961 simply by filling out a form and mailing it in to the birth registry. The birth registrar would then, at the end of the week, send out a list of all the new births to the newspaper.
