Then he may have lied and claimed he was never known under any other name in his Illinois State Bar application, an ethics violation that caused him to have to resign from the bar. So things like this generate questions that wouldn't necessarily need to be asked of other presidents.
We don't have to "solidly" prove obama was born elsewhere than the US. It is a requirement for all presidents to be natural born Americans. The fact that there is inconsistency, discrepency and doubt that obama was born in the US shows there is "solid" cause for concern, particularly when obama spends over $1 million to fight having to show his birth certificate. This is "solidly" suspicious behaviour for something that is critically important for world history - that obama actually meets the requirements set forth to be president.
I stick it in the same category as conspiracy theories; such as the ridiculous suggestion that 9/11 was an inside job... however, there are those who believe that too. This stuff about Obama would have been sniffed out and exposed in the days of Hillary trying to win the nomination if there was anything behind it. She alone would have put an end to that possibility just for her own gain. I, 100 percent, still believe in "we the people". As for the $1 million to fight showing it, if that is fact, then in political dollars that's only a drop in the bucket, and, if it were me, I would have spent it too just to piss people off who expected me to be treated differently than any one else in the same position. Just my opinion, Hot Tea.
Who knows about the name as a kid and taken by his mother into a second marriage and following the man to foreign country. If there is anything hidden here, I'd bet it is that his mother was a nutjob. Didn't he come back to live with his grandparents instead of staying with his mother?

Support it with something solid, please.
This is an interesting question. Did the other POTUS present this information? Was it presented and accepted? Did they withhold this information? Once one becomes POTUS, does this information get 'locked' from public records?
Since I've been a voter, which is the majority of my years now, I've never seen another go thru this sort of thing. I would think that once they even put themselves in political view, it is indeed locked in
public records, not from them.
The questions I would like to have answers to is; how did he pay for his travels abroad during his student years, and the scoop with his sister. The sister part has nothing to do with anything but how he paid for his travels and 'why' might make a difference in what I thought. On second thought, his relationship with his sister might be revealing about the whole "Soetoro" years. In all honesty, I wonder how many of us don't have a family tree where there are branches we would never bring to the light of day if we could keep it on the downlow.
