But it does make one wonder. Have any other U.S. Presidents had their citizenship challenged? Right now, I don't know the answer to that. Maybe others will let me know in the comments section. And there are ten GOP sponsors to a bill to insist that in future elections those running for POTUS must produce a valid birth certificate (as though they haven't at some point in the past already). Isn't that just a stealth way to get BHO to do what they think they want when he runs for re-election, thus catering to these sad, pitiful people?

Did You Hear the One About Obama Being a Kenyan?
I am a little confused. Where is the notion that BHO is not an American citizen coming from? I watched "Hardball" with Chris Matthews yesterday, and I was totally dumbfounded. I laughed openly at the woman from Delaware who hijacked Congressman Castle's constituent meeting, because it was clear that there was nothing BHO could do, ever, to convince her that he is not a "Kenyan."
The easy way to tackle this is to suggest that because BHO is the first black POTUS, and he had the unfortunate luck of not being a direct descendant of American slaves (though there are apparently American slave holders in his family history), and was born in what I assume to some must be the foreign country of Hawaii, that therefore, he must be a Muslim plant, a Manchurian Candidate, or perhaps just illegitimate. That would be easy.
