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, BarackObama.com, has numerous links to related sites including Facebookand MySpace, confirming that MySpace.com/barackobama 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.

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.


A screenshot from the archive of Barack Obama’s MySpace page from April 10, 2007, indicates an age of 45 years old, which would be consistent with a birth date of Aug. 4, 1961.

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.

Robert Gibbs, Obama’s press secretary, at first laughed at the idea, stating the “birth certificate” was on the Internet. That image, however, shows a “certification of live birth” which is not the same document and until recently wasn’t even accepted as identification by the state of Hawaii for some of its programs.

But a multitude of other records that also have not been released would shed light on the president’s past, including his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption records.

  1. I dont believe Obama is 52 years of age and if he is, make them PROVE IT. Otherwise we will all assume he was born in 1961 and orly taiz will demand he prove his citzenship, by providing said birth certificate, college records, health records, elementary-high school records, senate records and attorney client records. We will not accept he is 52, just because some low-level, totem poll secrectary, posted the information on Facebook. Prove he is 52; heresay is not evidence!

  2. FActcheck.org, is not a credible source of information and is owned by annenberg, which Obama used to do some work for. I wouldnt believe anything posted on this site.

  3. This website is very cerdible…

    This website is just making us aware of the somethings that we don’t hear on the media….

    If there is a mistake in the Obama facebook profile then they should rectify it…

    Thanks for Early Today for making us realize that mistake…

    I am a life long Democrat and I give 5 stars for this blog…

  4. Watch out for Obama spammers who are paid by White House to do their bidding….

    I think marla is one of them….

    I love this blog…

  5. Again this website is owned by annenberg, of which obama used to do work for them. This is a biased site, as far as obama is concerned and I would not expect any of their material, regarding Obama to be accurate. They would do anything he asked them to to do.

  6. I think Marla works for the White House as a spammer…

    We all love Obama… He is our President….

    Marla is a spammer for White House….

  7. Guys, use your noodle, that you have on the top of your body. If I worked for the White HOuse, I would not be saying anything, as staff in the White HOUse Dont!! I think today is his birthday and he is 47. But I only care WHERE he was born and it “aint” Dodge!!!

  8. Marla is a White House spammer…. Obama has a new Internet Czar who monitor blogs and social networking profiles that refute Obama…
