Constitution states any candidate for presidency must be natural born American citizen, meaning can't have immigrated and then attained citizenship.
I believe his father is Kenyan by birth, but I could be wrong

Even if Obama's father was Kenyan, Obama, being born in the US, is a US citizen. If not, none of us would be US Citizens.

That's "if" he was born in this country. We really don't know for sure as he sealed his records. So if he was or wasn't will probably always be debated and any documents showing anything, born here or anywhere else, at this point will always be in question.

Natural-born citizens are either born in the us, or on us soil, regardless of parents' nationality, or children born to an American woman, regardless of the child's place of birth.
As long as his mother was a citizen, he could have been born on the moon

Shame on you nanatracy. By questioning Obama's nationality, you are doubting his mother's nationality and that of his grandmother (read my post and see the link to the official site about citizenship in the US). You're a grandma, and I hope that your nationality or the nationality of your grandchildren is never doubted.

There is no shame in what I was saying. I'm stating what people have been questioning , when you seal your records it makes many wonder what you might be hiding. I clicked on your link and it says the link is null & void. So I continued to search and found a link thru Google to a site that explains the different parts of the Constitution. I admit I was surprised at a couple of the definitions of a "Natural born citizen" I'm still a little confused to be quite honest.
As far as my questioning anything to do at all with Obama, that's my right to do so! He is the one with the sealed records! Why? Why seal college records and birth records? There are many who wonder what he has to hide. One theory is how could his mother afford a Harvard education? Where did the funding come from? Some believe he went to Harvard on foreign exchange scholarship funding. I'm not saying this is true, but I have every right to wonder, because he refuses to disclose any information.
When I say that this whole citizenship issue will always be in question, it's because when people feel like he's hiding something in the beginning , they lose trust. I personally don't trust him, and he's not done anything to show me that I can, and I will not be ashamed of that!
Now, as for questioning my or my grandchildrens nationality , no problem! We have certified, legible copies of our birth certificates that I would be happy to present to anyone who questioned me. I have nothing to hide. Does Obama? Well, we really don't know, do we? Just because he was elected President does not mean I have to automatically believe every word he says. You know, some women meet men from a different country, and move there, then have children. Now, according to the amendments of the Constitution, and this is where I get a little confused, there is a period of time that she must have maintained US citizenship should she want to have a child outside of this country and return that her child would be considered a citizen, except for military and foreign diplomats families. Could this have been the situation with Obamas mother? Well, I don't know...don't know much at all for sure about this man other than what he says, because again, as I have said before, his records are "sealed"!

RaulDiaz007 is right. But, I'd just like to point out some facts for people who don't understand how citizenship works...

"You may become a U.S. citizen either at birth or after birth. Individuals who are born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States and individuals born in certain territories or outlying possessions of the United States are citizens at birth. Also, individuals born outside the United States may be citizens at birth if their parent or parents were citizens at the time of birth and other requirements are met."

With a father from Kenya and a mother from Kansas, President Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. Here is another thread on this topic: http://www.ask.com/answers/2158551/what-is-obama-s-real-birth-date-origin-and-religion

Yes! He was born in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. His father was in the U.S. in college as an exchange student and that's how he met Obama's mother. I'm not sure why so many people think Obama was born in another country???
