Ineligibility Snafu: Media Pointed Out Trump’s Scotland-Born Mother, But Not Obama’s Kenyan-Born Father

With some inspiration from DrKatesView’s recent posting, and with an alleged FOIA request confirming Mr. Obama Sr.’s citizenship status (something that was not altogether obvious from the now-released alleged birth certificate), remember Politico’s Ben Smith saying the following?:

Trump’s mother, it should be noted, was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This fact pattern — along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he claims is a birth certificate — raises serious doubts about his eligibility to serve as President of the United States.

I had also posted recently that WND reported that Mr. Trump’s mother had become naturalized three years prior to Donald’s birth.

If Mr. Smith was being serious in his observation about Mr. Trump’s mother, then why couldn’t he be just as serious about Mr. Obama’s father who, as it currently appears, never became a naturalized American citizen (perhaps likely because he wanted to retain his Kenyan/British citizenship, for whatever reason, such as never intending to stay within the United States)?

Maybe releasing further background documentation by Mr. Obama would raise these questions even further regarding his past? After all, in this 2012 presidential campaign season, being fit for the presidency isn’t solely about presidential eligibility. And, at this point, all questions are legitimately on the table.

Maybe the birth certificate was just the tip of the iceberg.
