The dispute centers around the U.S. Constitution's requirement that a president be only a "natural born Citizen." That was generally thought during the time the Constitution was being written to be the offspring of two citizens of a country on that country's soil.
"What the White House should do is answer the questions: Where is the real birth certificate? Why can't qualified forensic examiners have access to Obama's birth records in Hawaii to determine if they are authentic? Why doesn't the Congress hold hearings on Obama's eligibility, the same way the Senate investigated John McCain's eligibility in 2008?
"It is time for the White House to stop the lying and the smears. Obama needs to face the American people not only about where he was born, but with disclosure of all the hidden records in his background," Corsi said.
