Washington Times Runs Birther Ad

    You have to admit that it’s a pretty good ad. Of course, the answer here is that it’s irrelevant what citizenship Obama’s father held just as it’s irrelevant that one of the millions of current aliens resident in the US is not a citizen but can have a child here who is. And British law conferring citizenship on the offspring of British subjects in former colonies doesn’t come into the matter at all (unless Obama had for some reason sought to claim British citizenship). As the offspring of a woman born in what is now Eire, I can apply for Irish citizenship if I feel like it. (And since my mother was a British subject when she sailed for America, I might even be able to claim british citizenship!) But I was born here. End of story.
