Mike Huckabee: Obama was raised in Kenya

Ah damn Huck. I foolishy thought out of all the potential republican candidates Mr. Huckabee was the most open minded and fair. I mean he defended Michelle Obama and all and then he goes and says this bull!@#$. On a conservative radio show he says Obama was raised in Kenya although Obama was raised in Hawaii and spent 4 years in Indonesia. Oh well I guess you should never let the truth get in the way of good talk radio. George Cook AAreports.com. Author of the Kindle book Let's Talk Honestly: One Black Man's Thoughts $1.50

Uhh, why would anybody care where he was raised? Mike Huckabee is nutz. Let's assume that Obama was indeed raised in Kenya. That would not disqualify him from being president. The two key requirements relevant to this are: 1) that a person be US born in the US and 2) that a person lived in the US for 14 years. The Constitution doesn't even say that those 14 years have to be recent nor does it say that the 14 years need to be consecutive. There is no prohibition on where someone should have lived prior to becoming a presidential candidate. So, even if it were true that President Obama did in deed grow up in Kenya, so what? He was born in America. So, Mike Huckabee needs to figure out a more substantive way to spend his time. Poor thang! And besides. Half his firt term is over. Like it or not, he's here, at least for the next two years. Get over it Mr. Huckabee.

One does not have to be born on US soil to be born a US citizen. If one parent is a US citizen the offspring can be born anywhere in the world and still would automatically be a US citizen. Military offspring are born out of the country and in foreign hospitals but are still considered US Citizens from birth. I guess Mike Huckabee has never served in the military or has been too busy reading his Bible to bother to read the Constitution.
