The cavalcade of stupid continues unabated:

Obama has Kenyan citizenship as well as US citizenship.

[...]

Reader Bob R. wonders:

I wonder how the clingy, bible thumpin’, shotgun pumpin’, outhouse dumpin’, crowd in flyover country would respond to this gem. And, wouldn’t it be “special” to hear the “Wizard of Uhhs” stumble through an explanation of this fact, and why it hasn’t been aired out earlier?

And, I’m not sure, but I believe that Kenya doesn’t allow dual citizenships. Mightn’t this be among the reasons that Glibama, the most transparent candidate with the most transparent campaign, won’t release his actual birth certificate?

Bob R. is correct in one respect: Kenya doesn’t allow dual citizenship. Unfortunately, commenting from the outhouse (the rest of America has indoor plumbing, but hey) leads you to say some stupid things. Obama wouldn’t comment on his “Kenyan citizenship” because dual citizens (if Obama was ever one) eventually have their Kenyan citizenship stripped:

A person who, upon the attainment of the age of twenty-one years, is a citizen of Kenya and also a citizen of some country other than Kenya shall, subject to subsection (7), cease to be a citizen of Kenya upon the specified date unless he has renounced his citizenship of that other country, taken the oath of allegiance and, in the case of a person who was born outside Kenya. made and registered such declaration of his intentions concerning residence as may be prescribed by or under an Act of Parliament.

Obama, being an American citizen, is legally prevented from having Kenyan citizenship and has been for 26 years. You don’t renounce citizenship, you don’t apply to have it taken away – it just goes after you turn 21, unless you renounce your citizenship for the other country. Of course, Obama must now prove that he didn’t renounce his American citizenship with a Certificate of Still Being a Citizen and Christian.

P.S.: Yes, this is xenophobic and racist on Gateway Pundit’s part. In case anyone was confused.
