Birthers: Obama's MySpace Page More Proof Of Obama's Birth Shenanigans

World Net Daily's latest issue with Barack Obama's eligibility to be president? His MySpace page has his age totally wrong!
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.
WingNutDaily fails to note in their article that even if Obama were born in Hawaii before it became a state, he would still be eligible. Barry Goldwater, for example, ran for president as the GOP candidate in 1964 even though he was born in Arizona before it became a state. I'll allow that the MySpace thing is strange, though. It's still wrong, too, at this writing.
