Sam, my book with the Constitution in it has the "critical comma" you mention but I believe since it’s a temporary provision you read it without the italicized part. It has this in parenthesis, (Parts of the Constitution no longer in effect are printed in italics). 

From my book,

"No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution,12 shall be eligible to the Office of President;" 

12. This was a temporary provision"

Should be read like this,

 No person except a natural born Citizen, shall be eligible to the Office of President;

I’m not an expert but I think I’m right about this,
