Natural citizen, or not?

Why does Obama not present a birth certificate, and quash this question about his natural-born status? This is really starting to bother me a lot.

It's an undeniable requirement - natural citizenship - that is explicitly required by our constitution. Do rules matter anymore, or is this another one of those pesky "fundamental flaws"?

What is the big deal in answering this question?

Thanks, Phil Berg, for raising awareness of this. I think that once we have set the precedent - that is that the rules don't really matter as written - well, anything therein can be discounted as obsolete, outmoded, or irrational...
