I am asking a question here...
Did I hear that McCain had to be officially vetted by Congress that he was, in fact, a bonafide US citizen due to his birth in a foreign (military setting) hospital, but to American parents? If this is correct, how did Obama get out of this? After all, even if he was born in HI, which is highly unlikely, his father was not an American citizen and so Barry could not be one, either. can we not request through our Congress-critters that this be done, even if it is after-the-fact?
Yup. And the cherry on that particular parfait is that Obozo himself was one of the people on the panel that approved McCains status.
I think he was clean, articulate, "Democrat", and black. As so, politically unimpeachable.
Did he have to be? No. Was he? Yes, by a non-binding resolution. Congress did pretty much the same thing for Obama with their resolution on the 50th anniversary of Hawaian statehood. So the two are even.
His mother was an American citizen and thus he is considered natural born. This whole thing is silly.
Ah, the McCaskill resolution:
"...There is indirect reason to believe that this may be true. 2d Session S. RES. 511: Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen.: In the Senate of the United States. was Sponsored by Senator McCaskill and co-sponsored by Senators Leahy, Obama, Coburn, Clinton and Webb. Why? Why were Democratic Senators trying to pass a Resolution making Senator McCain undoubtedly Legally Eligible when this issue had already been cleared up in 2000 and again in 2004? And why did Senators McCaskill and Obama reportedly insert the following Clause?
Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President;
This Clause has no particular relevance to McCain and the following Clause, which it is reported McCaskill and Obama attempted to REMOVE shows that:
; and Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936:
It seems clear that McCaskill and Obama were attempting to create a blanket Resolution covering ALL Foreign Born candidates. Why do that if not to benefit a Foreign Born Democratic Candidate, who did not have a US Military background?
McCain did not need this resolution, Richardson did not need this Resolution, so far as I can see nobody needed this Resolution unless somebody in the race was born outside the USA and was Covering his/her Ass and the only individual in the race that that could apply to was Senator Obama!"
I'm also given to understand that someone attempted to expand "the children of active duty US military" to "the descendants of active duty US military". That would cover The Onointed one via his granddad...
