Well, this one slipped under the radar ...

Barack Obama Citizenship Scandal: 7 Facts About Birth Certificate Controversy
Conspiracy theories asserting Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States gained steam during his 2008 presidential campaign and continue to garner support in certain communities. The "birther" scandal has been made light of by the media and by President Obama. However, if it were the case that Obama's birth certificate were forged or otherwise invalid, under Article Two of the U.S. Constitution he would be ineligible to be the president of the United States.
Here are seven facts about Barack Obama's birth certificate controversy:
1. Some people, dubbed by the media as "birthers," allege that Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii, but in his father's home country of Kenya. According to The Huffington Post, even if Obama had been born in Kenya, "the president still would have been a U.S. citizen at birth, because his mother was an American, a fact which nobody to this date denies."
2. In 2008, Jim Geraghty from the National Review Online suggested Barack Obama release his birth certificate to "debunk some rumors." In his article Geraghty wrote, "one could argue that he would not meet the legal definition of natural-born citizen under because U.S. law at the time of his birth required his natural-born parent (his mother) to have resided in the United States for “ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16.” Obama's mother was 18 when he was born which means she did not meet this requirement.
3. A promotional booklet published by Barack Obama's literary agents in 1991 states, "Barack Obama, the first African-American president of Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." As part of a "vetting of the president" series, Breitbart published a copy the booklet. However, Andrew Breitbart was not a "birther" and published a disclaimer saying he did not believe Obama was born outside of the United States.
4. An article published in 2004 about then U.S. Senate hopeful Barack Obama also identified him as Kenyan-born. According to Gateway Pundit, Obama never refuted the article. [...] Continued @ Newsmax.
Newsmax also listed a statement by Hawaii Department of Health director Chiyome Fukino on Obama's vital records, Donald Trump's statement the day Obama posted the supposed birth certificate on WhiteHouse.gov., and NBC News White House correspondent Chris Jansing reporting Obama is from Kenya.
Why does Newsmax insist on ignoring Sheriff Joe Arpaio's findings that Obama's birth certificate is a 100% forgery?
Not to mention Sheriff Arpaio's findings on Obama's Selective Service registration ...
Don't you love how a supposed conservative publication cites the far-left blog Huffington Post on U.S. citizenship all while ignoring the issue is really about Obama's Article II "natural born Citizen" status?
@Newsmax, if Obama's parents are who appear on the confirmed to be forged birth certificate then he's not eligible.
