As Pro, I will be arguing that President Obama is indeed a U.S. citizen. Con shall attempt to prove otherwise.

First round acceptance. Good luck.

Because yannikmarazia has a history of trolling and forfeiture, I shall not construct an entire argument. Instead, I shall present only a single point.

President Obama was born on United States soil and is therefore a United States citizen according to the Constituiton and the legal principle of jus soli.[1]

Since I don't know anything about this, I will tell you why my opponent is stupid.
1: He doesn't put up an actual argument, but just says I troll.
2: For his source he cited urban legend.com. This is far from an reliable source.
And for all these reasons you should vote con.
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Actually, I cited the urban legends section of About.com. But if that still isn't good enough for you, here are some other sources that confirm that President Obama was born in Hawaii:

1. http://www.whitehouse.gov...
2. http://www.obamacitizenshipfacts.org...
3. http://www.cnn.com...
4. http://www.barackobama.com...
5. http://www.politifact.com...

And I have put up an actual argument: "President Obama was born on United States soil and is therefore a United States citizen according to the Constituiton and the legal principle of jus soli."
