1. The argument that children born to servicemen while they are stationed out of the country is idiotic, political, and treasonous. 2. The ORIGINAL INTENT of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment was to prevent states from disqualifying blacks as citizens in the post-Civil War era. It was never intended to make anchor babies or Manchurian candidates eligible for President. 3. The ORIGINAL INTENT of the 'natural born citizen' qualification is to make sure we never got a President who hates America because he was born into a foreign culture that may be hostile to the US (like most Muslim cultures). 4.

Birtherism -- the belief that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, not in the United States -- pretty much died last year when the White House released a copy of the president's long-form birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. After that, the number of Americans who doubted Obama's place of birth dropped dramatically.
