It's a certificate of live birth, not a birth certificate. I've been assured by top men that the two documents are not interchangeable in any way.

Article is about George Romney's (Mittens father) presidential campaign, and how he wasn't born in the US. Interesting quote from article.

In a paper in November aimed at clarifying presidential eligibility, the Congressional Research Service declared that the practical, legal meaning of "natural born citizen" would "most likely include" not only anyone born on U.S. soil but anyone born overseas of at least one parent who was a U.S. citizen.

Well, we know it's not the real thing, since it doesn't have Romney's actual birthplace of Equestria.

Yes, Republican Mitt Romney appears eligible to be president, according to a copy of Romney's birth certificate released to Reuters by his campaign. Willard Mitt Romney, the certificate says, was born in Detroit on March 12, 1947.

Nope, no good. We need a LONG FORM. Then, we need a Sheriff's investigation of said long form, after whomever is in charge of verifying these in Michigan verifies it. After that, we need a Secretary of State to travel TO Michigan and ask the officials there to verify it AGAIN. All the while, we need Fox news to spend hours trying to discredit the birth certificate, as well as multiple other politicians

Otherwise, this does NOT equal what Obama has gone through, so it's nothing more than a pile of bullshiat.

Also, where is his Selective Service record?

You forgot that we need thousands of bloggers to consistently talk about the reasons why the document is not authentic, we need people to sue Mitt Romney claiming it is a forgery and he is ineligible to be president, and we need Mitt Romney to ultimately call a press conference where he releases the long-form while he's orchestrating a SEAL Team Six mission that will result in the assassination of America's number one public enemy.

There should be some kind of penalty for continuing to hound a candidate about his birth records.

Once the matter is settled, the other side should have to fork over at least several million dollars in annoyance compensation.

Nationality by birth

The constitution declares that Mexicans by birth (natural born Mexicans) are the following:[1]

individuals born in Mexican territory regardless of the nationality of their parents;
individuals born abroad if one or both of their parents was a Mexican national born in Mexican territory;
individuals born abroad if one or both of their parents was a Mexican national by naturalization; and
individuals born in Mexican merchant or Navy ships or Mexican merchant or Army aircraft


Oh dear, Mitt Romney appears to be a natural born Mexican citizen.

Actually, Mitt is of Mexican nationality on his father's side; since Mitt never lived in Mexico, he does not qualify as a Mexican citizen. It works much like Irish nationality law - by law, I am of Irish nationality, but I am a citizen of the Untied States.

I was born in Michigan as well, and my birth certificate looks nothing like this. As a result, the only logical thing to conclude is that this is a forgery. There is no other possible explanation.

Don't start the Romney birth certificate stuff because his Dad was born in Mexico and therefore makes Rmoney a mexican and gives him hispanic street cred to hispanics while he gets to maintain his whiteness. Essentially, bringing up his birth certificate is a letting him have his cake and eat it too.

Mitt's father was born in Mexico and lived there for 5 years. His parents were part of the Mormon colonies near the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, a colony started in 1885, when the United States government began prosecuting polygamy practitioners within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. George Romney was most likely born in the state of Sonora or Chihuahua, which means Mitt technically is the son of a Mexican national and a United States national.

Soup4Bonnie: As if unicorns are born in Michigan. Pull the other one.


Anything born on Mackinac Island will turn into a unicorn. This is especially true is there are any lilacs blooming, and do we know what kind of weather Michigan was having in March 1947? Sure, winter usually hangs around for a while in Michigan, but sometimes spring comes early. Has anyone looked into the weather reports for 1947? Do we know for sure that Mitt was born in Detroit? Maybe that was just the hospital Mrs. Romney was taken to after she gave birth on the island. I'm not saying he wasn't born in Detroit, but do we really know for sure? Why isn't the press looking into this?
 
2012-05-31 02:22:27 PM
The Michigan certificate of live birth is meaningless, it's not documentary proof of anything. We're going to need the real, physical long-form birth certificate.

While we're waiting for that, when is Romney going to release all of his marriage certificates? We have no way of knowing how many wives he has until he releases them all. What is he hiding? Why can't we see all of them? So many, many questions surrounding his legitimacy.

Actually, it depends on the law of each country. I wasn't born in Italy, never lived there, but I have Italian citizenship because Italian law gives it to me, based on the citizenship of my grandparents.

I don't know Mexican law, but it's possible MItt could be a Mexican citizen; it depends on Mexican law. From what's posted above, it looks like he has Mexican citizenship, since his dad was born there. That doesn't prevent him from being a natural born U.S. citizen. U.S. citizenship is based on U.S. law and isn't affected by the laws of any other country.

Obama had Kenyan citizenship as a child. Kenyan law says that you have to travel to Kenya and legally declare your Kenyan citizenship within 2 years of your 21st birthday or you lose the citizenship. So Obama's not a Kenyan citizen, but he could have been if he wanted to.

Being a citizen of another country does not negate anyone's U.S. citizenship, since U.S. citizenship is based on U.S. law.
