Yeah, this topic is an old, tired one, but it was reported by Bret Baier on Fox News.
News coming out of Arizona won’t be making any birthers happy. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett asked the state of Hawaii to legally verify that President Obama was born in Hawaii.
Well, the state of Hawaii did just that. Now, Bennett acknowledges that Obama is constitutionally qualified to be the President. By the way, Bennett is a Republican.
This isn’t the first time that Hawaii government officials verified that President Obama was born in Hawaii. In April 2011 the state of Hawaii issued a news release which stated for the official record that Obama was born in Hawaii.
I don’t expect that this latest evidence will satisfy anyone who still insists that Obama was born outside the USA. There are still people who claim that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a fake – a claim that has already been debunked, as reported by FoxNews.com.
Also, there are still people who believe that Obama isn’t a natural-born U. S. citizen despite his birth in Hawaii. In the SCOTUS case of United States v. Wong Kim Ark, the Court ruled that a person born in the USA is a natural-born citizen, which means that Obama is a natural-born citizen. Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be the President was confirmed by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. By the way, Kemp is a Republican.
There are plenty of reasons to be opposed to Obama’s presidency*, but his citizenship status isn’t one of them.
(*I have always been opposed to Obama’s presidency.)
