You are correct, but there are many birthers who maintain that McCain was not “natural born” because he was born in Panama (even though both of his parents were U.S. citizens).
The purist birthers hold that you must be born in the U.S. to parents who are both U.S. citizens at the time of your birth.
There are variants. Some birthers are okay with your being born outside of the country to U.S. citizens as McCain was. A few birthers are okay with your being born in the U.S. to parents, one of which was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth.
I believe that being born a U.S. citizen according to the Constitution is the same as being “natural born”. If you have always been a U.S. citizen since the second you were born, you are “natural born” irregardless of the status of your parents.
I agree. There are two natural law concepts that determine citizenship at birth, place and parentage. Any combination sufficient to be a natural born citizen is born a U.S. citizen with natural allegiance to the U.S.A.. The only other way to become a U.S. citizen to be “naturalized” into that state of natural allegiance.
Don’t forget the birther theory that mothers under a certain age can’t pass on citizenship, even if their kids are born in the US.
Another one who missed basic middle school civics class, where all Americans are taught one must be born on U.S. soil to be a natural born citizen the requirement for President. This isn’t that difficult.
