52 or 48 Have Your Pick Obama Already Did

Obama's MySpace page: I'm 52 years old, not 48

Would place president's birth during time Hawaii was a territory


If President Obama were indeed born in Hawaii, was it while the islands were a territory of the United States?

A new wrinkle in the dispute over his birth – and whether he is eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution's requirement that the president be a "natural born" citizen – appeared today when Obama's official MySpace page declared his age is 52, thus placing his birth year at 1957 instead of 1961 as has been claimed.

That would mean he would have been born during the archipelago's time as a territory of the U.S., the islands' status from about 1900 until statehood in 1959.

The birth year also conflicts with campaign and other White House information that have discussed his 48th birthday this month.

An Aug. 16, 2009, screenshot of President Obama's MySpace page declares his age as 52, not 48 as has been claimed elsewhere.

Obama's personal web page,, has numerous links to related sites including Facebook and MySpace, confirming that is the president's page on MySpace.

Even when one puts the words "MySpace" and "Barack Obama" into search engines such as Google, the top result is the same page and indicates: "Official profile page for Barack Obama includes his blog, blurbs, news clips, videos and comments from his MySpace friends."

Obama's Facebook listing does not display his age, but shows his date of birth as Aug. 4, 1961.

Obama's Facebook page lists his date of Birth as Aug. 4, 1961, and also confirms his MySpace page address

A WND request to the White House for comment did not generate an immediate response.

It was the Associated Press that reported on Aug. 4 Obama was having Senate Democrats to lunch because "it's the president's birthday and Chuck E. Cheese was booked."

AP credited Obama with being the nation's third youngest president who turned 48 this month.

Interestingly, a check of the Internet archive "Wayback Machine" finds that on April 10, 2007, Obama had his age listed as 45 on MySpace, which would be correct if, in fact, he had been born in August 1961 as has been trumpeted.

Les Kinsolving, WND's correspondent at the White House, several times has raised the question over Obama's eligibility at White House news briefings – initially asking why the president didn't just release a copy of his original long-form birth certificate.

Wild Thing's comment........

I realize with all of these a person can put any age they want, MySpace, Facebook any of them don't check a person's id. The only want a legit email address. But even so it is either highly stupid that Obama did not catch this or someone on slipped up with the truth?

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

If he is 52 then he has just hung himself. Hawaiil was not a state when he was born. Now there is more gasoline for the fire of "us" Birthers.

This could be a diversion to get things away from his hated Health Care reform but could also open a real can of worms. Lets hope so.

Chances are Obama didn't even register or provide the information. Most likely one of his aids did as from what I'm reading, he does very little for himself.

Everything Obama and his clique does is a diversion. The only way to tell for sure is to check two things, his real birth certificate and his belly button, one to verify his true age and nationality, the other to verify that he was born of man.

I'm off for a few days, here is a demographic problem to gnaw on.

I wish I could just pick my age. I would go lower if possible. But all my personal info is in the DOD Archives in St. Louis, including a county clerk and recorder seal copy of my real birth certificate. Had to prove who I was back in '73 so I could enlist.

Maybe he was actually born in the 57th state and like his age, isn't sure which one that is.
