Around noon, Obama marks today's tax deadline with an address about the tax code. His remarks come as conservatives host tea parties nationwide to demonstrate their opposition to government spending under his administration.

At 4:00 p.m., Obama meets with U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs delivers the press briefing at 1:00 p.m.

Mr Obama was born in Kenya - this makes him ineligible to be President.

Another fact is that his *father's* birth certificate was widely available until Mr Obama suppressed it - and it gave the racial details of the father. This is standard for births in Kenya. The father is 92% Arab and 8% black so Mr Obama does not qualify as the first black President...
but no one can challenge this without being called a racist. Very well done, don't you think?

Legally, Obama is not President if he is not a "natural born" citizen.
