How could Obama's father be from Kenya, in 1961, when Kenya didn't exist until 1963.

See the certificate attached. It states his father is from Kenya. Kenya didn't become a country until 1963. This raises even more of a serious question. What is this document? I could care less as I won't vote for him but this is even worse than no document at all.

    it became independent in 1963 it was founded centuries before the 20th century next time do two seconds of research. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/... in there it says that it became independent DEC.12 '63 but I like how you're trying to get him out of office in a different way;)

    Kenya was a British colony, it was called Kenya for many many years before 1961, the Republic of Kenya was formed in 1963, when it gained independence from the UK which is quite different.

    I think that's where your getting confused. Previous to that a person born in Kenya was still called a Kenyan even before it became a republic.

    Prior to 1963 the place of birth on a birth certificate was just Kenya, after 1963 the place of birth would be The Republic of Kenya. I'm not an American and have no axe to grind about Obama's nationality just giving the facts.

    True - Kenya is an ancient name for a very ancient Kingdom and civilization.
