Oh, God, not you too. I'm so disappointed.

Obama was born in Hawaii, but claimed he was born in Kenya whenever it suited him (notably during his college days). His reluctance to address the issue is not because he's lying when he says he was born in Hawaii, but because he knows he was lying when he said he was born in Kenya so many times.

When and to whom did Obama claim to have been born in Kenya?

Note especially the 2004 Obama vs. Keyes debate, when apparently Keyes said to Obama "You are not even a natural born citizen!" and Obama replied without hesitation "So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency."

Link? Sounds like an Internet rumor.

And Keyes says that exchange never happened. Besides, Keyes questioning of Obama's "natural born citizen" status is based on the fact that both of his parents weren't U.S. citizens, which isn't in dispute, not his birthplace.

There's plenty of people who corroborate that Obama claimed he was born in Kenya, with various degrees of believability and documentary evidence.

Who, for example? What documentary evidence are you referring to?
