If, as many claim, Big Crock Obama was not born in the US and was never naturalized, was he even eligible to have been a US Senator?
Consider the constitutional qualifications for a US Senator in Article 1, Section 3
"No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States..."
Being born in the US is not a qualification for being a senator, but being naturalized is.
It just seems strange to me that all this is gathering steam NOW, rather than earlier.
That last sentence is just my two cents, which frequently ain't worth a plug nickel.
