Here's some cut and paste for you :wojar wrote:
Sorry, it, natural born citizen, was universally understood to be someone who was born on American soil.
“And the constitution itself contains a direct recognition of the subsisting common law principle,in the section which defines the qualification of the President.‘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,’ &c. The only standard which then existed, of a natural born citizen, was the rule of the common law, and no different standard has been adopted since. Suppose a person should be elected President who was native born, but of alien parents, could there be any reasonable doubt that he was eligible under the constitution? I think not.”
Lynch v. Clarke, 3 NY Leg. Obs. 236, 246 (N.Y. Ch. 1844).
“In the convention of the people of Pennsylvania, which was held in November, 1787, to take into consideration the adoption of the Federal Constitution, it [giving up of common law rights] was objected because the word ‘appeaIs’ was used in that instrument, that the trial by jury was intended to be given up, and the civil law introduced in its stead.(See Wilson’s Works, and Hall’s Amer. Law Journal 321, 423, 426.)”
“And this rooted partiality for the common law, resulted in the adding of the express provisions securing to the people the right of trial by jury, and other common law rights, which are to be found in the amendments to the Constitution of the United States.”
"And this rooted partiality for the common law ...." Yet birfoons insist the Revolution was all about getting rid of common law.
But don't let facts get in your way, birfoons, it would spoil your fantasy.

The action follows by weeks the release of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into Obama’s eligibility. The investigation by professional law enforcement officers working on a volunteer basis for Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse found probable cause that Obama’s birth certificate was forged and fraudulently presented as a genuine document.
The plaintiff has submitted affidavits from Arpaio and others to support the claim.
The complaint explains that even if Obama was born within the United States, he is still not a “natural-born citizen” as required by the U.S. Constitution.That’s because his father was born in the British Colony of Kenya on June 18, 1936, making him a British subject, according to the British Nationality Act of 1948.
Obama did not even know that for any person,but especially for the "Commander in Chief" to stand their with his hands over his crotch instead of saluting the Flag which is a SYMBOL of this nation,and his hand over his HEART area when songs,etc representing respect for those who gave their lives for this country, was one of the most DISRESPECTFUL things he could have done shows his "culture" came from elsewhere. Pretty much everyone was shocked, even his supporters - but then the "spin" came out and it was HIDDEN like sweeping dirt under a couch.
PLUS his LOONY wife once said "All this just for a Flag".....
TRR: Michelle Obama:“All This Just For a Flag”
As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers,a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say,“all this just for a flag.”She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.
Just for a flag?If that is what she said it is regrettable(Wash Times)
"Appears to say?" APPEARS? From the Washington Times,to the right of Mein Kampf? Lip reading? The hate!
