    Bush's college grades are well known

    If Sham Wow was serious about maintaining his academic privacy why did we hear reams about his successful Harvard Law career but we don't hear what he did at Occidental and Columbia. The WSJ noted obama didn't graduate with even basic honors so its pretty safe to believe he got into HLS purely because of his race since his grades were way below the mean and median GPA (I doubt any whites made it in with a 3.2 or lower.

    I've heard that the Bamster didn't publish any articles while he was editor of the Harvard Law Review. If that's true isn't that unusual for a law review editor to go unpublished?

    Article is here
    .
    When you first read through this section of the Constitution it reads as if it's referring to the time at which the Constitution was ratified - rather than a "current" reference to when/where they were born - thus - no one was alive at *that* time and therefor it doesn't matter anymore.
    of course i know that's not what it's interpreted to mean.

    No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    Damn, you just gave the birthers more ammunition for another lawsuit. Since Obama was not born "at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution", he could therefore not have been a citizen "at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution". Obama is therefore not a citizen. Get a lawyer, preferably an ambulance chaser. Orly Taitz will do, providing that she has not been disbarred yet.

    And how do you do that? Because no mattter what produced there's always going to be some conspiracy nutballs that think its fake or not real or a cover up and that they have a doubt.

    Why should someone's college transcripts matter? Are you not sure he actually went to college or something?

    It's not how it's interpreted because that's not at all what it means.

    I know - I was just saying how it's written can come across differently
