I do wish we'd drop this

I do wish we'd drop this birther and truther nonsense. It just makes us look silly.

You may "believe" that but but you don't have support in historical precedent and the most recent Supreme Court rulings.

Chester Arthur's father was a British subject at the time of Chester's birth and NOBODY cared about it despite the fact that Arthur had many political enemies. There is also the Obama precedent.

The most recent Supreme Court ruling on the definition clearly held that all persons born in the U.S. are natural born citizens. See here:
