It was altered. An ask member who is inactive for a while, posted a link. The hospital where Obama was born in Hawaii wasn't built until he was six years of age. Make no bones about it. He is our first president who violated the native born law.
According to some experts his Certificate of Live Birth was tampered with. He has never shown an actual Birth Certificate. One way or the other Obama was not properly vetted to be eligible for president in 08. Although many people still believe he is not eligible the courts have ruled in his favor. My personal belief is that the truth, what ever that may be, will come to light years after he is gone. Just like Senator McCarthy's charges of Communists in government positions turned out to be fact after Russia released their records years later proving there were Communist operatives in high and low level positions in our government. Still people believe McCarthy was a conspiracy theorist.
In any case, the point is moot... even if for some reason he was actually born in Kenya, he'd still be eligible to run for President, as he would still be a "natural born citizen" because his mother was a US citizen.
"Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:
* Anyone born inside the United States
* Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)"
