No it has not. It has, however, as have other courts, made a number of rulings which indicate otherwise...although no cases directly involved the issue of Presidential eligibility. Given those precedents and the meaning of the phrase at the time it was written from the common law, it would be quite an uphill battle to get a finding that Rubio or Jindal would not be eligible. Some of the cases involved someone born to people with no connection to the US other than the child was born here...in their cases you people born in the U.S. where the parents were legally in the U.S. with the intention of staying permanently to become loyal citizens of the same.

The last time I posted all of the rulings including the actual text it was said that I was actually a secret agent of Barack Obama (even though we weren't even discussing Obama) try to mislead people on the issue by posting the text of Supreme Court rulings which contradicted their viewpoints - rather than actually address what the rulings said. Another person said that the text I posted had been falisfied and that over time the actual rulings have been lost to history and others revised and falsified the text we have today and that we would need to find the original copies of the rulings issued by the court and we would find they were different...

You do not know how to read, and you do not understand legal concepts.

That the Senate mentioned McCain's parentage does not mean that parentage was required, if McCain met other requirements for Citizenship. You can be born outside the United States, of US Citizens (if of appropriate age) and still be a Citizen at Birth.

Because argument MIGHT be made about the exact place of birth for McCain, since the US Territory of Panama contained a few different jurisdictions, such as US bases, it was important for the Senate to make note of details.

The same is true of the few Court Cases your very small band of “NBC” types refer to.

That a legal decision mentions a point does not mean that point is controlling, such mention often means that that particular issue was not at issue.

Again, you do not know what you are talking about.

NOBODY buys your “Natural Born Citizen” argument -— nobody of any import, anyway.

No Judge, no Member of Congress, No attorney of any real stature, NO elected official, anywhere.

You are way out on the fringe and you are clearly wrong.

Obama’s BC shows his father was a Kenyan who never was a US citizen. Last time I checked, he is running for 2nd term.

Would someone please tell me what two US citizens where Barack Hussein Obama’s parents?

What a crazy world where we argue about Jindal and Rubio yet the clearest violator sits in Washington like a Greek god (in his mind) before us!
