szechwean asked: I find it interesting also that one of excerpts in the Snopes article made mention of the fact that Obama's father was not a US citizen so therefore Obama is not a natural born citizen. I was not aware that citizenship was (still) inherited paternally.

If that’s the case, Mitt Romney should be worried. George Romney, Mitt’s father, would not have been an American citizen if that were true. He was born in Mexico, but because his parents were U.S. citizens, he was a citizen. If the citizenship issue were interpreted as strictly as birthers suggest, well, George was not born on American soil — therefore not American. Then, if citizenship is inherited paternally, well, Mitt’s not an American.

And they just disqualified Mitt.
