Our Constitution says only a Natural Born Citizen can be president and in 1874 the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Minor  Vs. Happersett defined an N.B.C. as a person born of parents both of whom are citizens excludes Obama from the Office of Presidency, therefore at this time we have no president?

Do you have any other information supporting this claim? Quotations from the court case? Evidence that both parents were not citizens? Sometimes it seems this issue is overblown or missunderstood. Just my opinion.

I am providing exact quotes copied and pasted into my off -ine drives from the documents I found on-line. I verified these by seasrching at least 3 sources on each document including Supreme Court Records.

Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 5 says (quote):

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Minor v. Happersett / Supreme Court of the United States / 88 U.S. 162; 21 Wall 162 / October, 1874 Term / page 3, by unanimous decision (quote):

Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. This is apparent from the Constitution itself, for it provides that "no person except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President," and that Congress shall have power "to establish a uniform rule of naturalization." Thus new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.

Both documents are easily searched and found online.

Please note: Only a "... natural born citizen ..." is eligible to be President as stated and quoted by the Court and continued by defining that status is by that Court defined as a child "... born in a country of parents who were its citizens ..."

Following with common logic and reasoning the definition by Supreme Court of the United States, being uncontested and standing, neither B. O. Obama nor Cruz can be President. Neither are natural born citizens and have never been eligible not ever will be eligible to be President.

Regarding Obama's parentage, I can only submit a copy of the short and long form birth certificates he presented as his own, and his personal autobiography stating that his father was not a citizen of the United States. None of these can I present to you but are available on-line if you are really interested.
