BOTH of McCain’s Parents were US Citizens.

BOTH of McCain’s Parents were old enough to pass AUTOMATIC citizenship to John McCain, even if McCain had been born on Mars.

Wrong, and this is old news, it comes from 2008 and isn't worth whining or crying about. And, just understand, you are in the company of a great number of folks who just aren't bothering to do their research and go off blazing without a single thought of actually asking the important questions and finding the answers that are out there for anyone to find who cares.

Whereas, I am in the camp of folks who are too lazy to have all of these citations to jam into a post to you without spending 15 minutes for each fool who comes up with the same wrong interpretation of the same laws written up to nearly hundreds of years after Article II was put in place.

To find out what this means, you have to look to who wrote it and find what they say they meant. Then you know.

Well, maybe, but the law was differnent in 1936 than it was after 1952. Also citizenship is not enough, it must be natural born citizenship. The provisions of the law, which was passed by Congress under it's power to define a uniform rule of naturalization, can't redefine "natural born citizenship". However with both McCain's parents being citizens, and if he was, as he and his mother both claim, born on the Navy Base at Coco Solo, then that was on territory under complete US control, at the time, and thus he likely met the Natural Born citizen requirement. If however he was born in Colon Panama, then he was citizen due to the law, but perhaps not a natural born citizen.
