Constitutional expert: Here’s what ‘natural born citizen’ means
There are those who dislike Obama’s policies and just want him out of office. There are those who like the socialism he’s been working to install in the U.S. and probably will vote for him again. And there are those who have done some research and say the simple logic of the facts regarding Obama confirms he’s not eligible under the Constitution’s requirements for a person to be president.
But the concept of a constitionally qualified “natural born citizen,” when it’s been used interchangeably with so many other words like “citizen” and “native-born citizen,” remains an enigma to some.
Now comes a constitutional scholar to put it in simple phrases and make it clear.
The evaluation of the meaning of “natural born citizen” in the Constitution comes from Dr. Herbert W. Titus, of counsel to the law firm William J. Olson.
He previously taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for 30 years at five different American Bar Association-approved law schools. From 1986 to 1993 he was the founding dean of the College of Law and Government at Regent University.
And before that, he was a trial attorney and special assistant U.S. attorney with the Department of Justice.
