I love Birthers

SCOTUS confers on Presidential eligibility; ruling could be this week - National Conservative | Examiner.com: "Vattel was a French/Swiss writer who penned a work entitled, 'The Laws of Nations,' which maintains that during the era of the Founders it was common knowledge that 'natural-born citizen' meant a person born within the U.S. to parents who were both U.S. citizens. Court precedent affirms this understanding of the term, given the Court's numerous rulings on other matters in which the Vattel definition was accepted as that which the Framers of the Constitution assumed. Chief Justice John Marshall had affirmed the Vattel definition as the correct one in 1814.

According to the attorney for the Petitioners, Barack Obama's father was not a U.S. citizen but a British subject at the time of Obama's birth, meaning that according to the historical record, Obama would thus be ineligible to serve as President of the United States."
