I keep getting emails doubting if Obama is a natural-born citizen, something you have to be to be President. As Steve Sailer said a while back, of course he is. His mother`s family has been American, as Colby Cosh recently pointed out, since the seventeenth century.[See family tree] Furthermore, he was born in the State of Hawaii, which would make him an American citizen even if both his parents were from Kenya.

The fact is that it`s easier to be a "natural born citizen" than you probably think, which is a problem in itself. McCain has citizenship through both his mother and father, though born in the Canal Zone.

The question for voters isn`t if Obama is an America—the quesion is, "Does he feel like an American?"
