    Yeah, thank god. My point was to be that he did run once upon a time, and I don't remember a big stink about it, though there may have been in some circles.

    While Pres. Obama is half-black, half-white (approx), he self-identifies as black, and he is treated as black, particularly by the racists who hate his presidency.

    Sadly, the country is not as color-blind as you are.

    You are not paying attention.
    I never once said he wasn't.

    I clearly stated he was born of one parent and owing allegiance to another country.
    That is not a natural born citizen.

    But McCain is a natural-born citizen, even though he was not born within this country’s borders, since his parents were citizens at the time of his birth. As a congressional act stated in 1790:
    Congress: “And the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens.”
    Applies to Cruz too.

    No Patty it didn't apply to McCain and it does not apply to Cruz.
    That was changed when Congress discovered their error a short 5 years later in 1795 to just "citizen".
    Please note the year, 1795.

    But that is what you get for using a liberal source, they don't make it clear, directly lie and point you to something totally irrelevant to their dishonest claim.

    Had anything you said been true no one would have thought it was needed to pass a non-binding resolution to declare McCain eligible.
    He clearly wasn't, still isn't, and neither is Cruz.

    No Montecresto, there you don't have it.
    She provided you faulty information.
    Congress realized their error and corrected the mistake and the language was changed a short five years later in 1795 to just "citizen".

    What do you base that on? I've heard him speak on the subject, he is, without a doubt, very knowledgeable. I believe he's argued cases in front of the Supreme Court.

    We know what you said. You're just wrong.

    The resolution wasn't required. He and Cruz both had a parent who was an American citizen; therefore they are American citizens.

    but here you go - here's a "liberal" site that says it's ambiguous, if you prefer
    snopes.com: Is John McCain a natural-born citizen of the U.S.?

    I think word-sniping over what "natural-born" is is pretty stupid, but that's just me.

    And by the way, the original link did go on to say
    Another congressional act in 1795 issued a similar assurance, though it changed the language from “natural born citizen” to “citizen.”

    But the State Department clarifies the issue, saying that the 1790 language is honored under section 301(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
    I just assumed people would read the full thing, not look solely at what I quoted.
