    Congress realized their error and corrected the mistake and the language was changed a short five years later in 1795 to just "citizen".
    Ok, so you're saying that regardless where a president is born, as long as one parent is a US citizen, then the child can be a president.

    He was born in the Canal Zone, which is (or at least was) controlled by the United States.

    It may come as a surprise to you, but obama isn't black.
    So focusing on Obama's heritage makes one not a racist?

    Yeah, I think Excon already cleared that up.

    Of course not, what matters is whether that President is a Republican.

    I do think that McCain was eligible. I think Cruz is too. So am I.


    Cruz should make it his campaign slogan. "Ted Cruz - Legally eligible for the Presidency."

    No one said they are not citizens.
    Are you really not paying attention?
    They are not natural born Citizens. There is a difference.

    As a liberal, of course you would. Anything to ignore the Constitution.
    The Constitution clearly distinguishes between a Citizen and a natural born Citizen. You can be a Citizen for the lower offices, but not for the office of the President of which you must be a natural born Citizen.

    I just assumed people would read the full thing, not look solely at what I quoted.

    They did not make it clear that the first was superseded, as in no longer in effect.
    And as already said, they "directly lie and point you to something totally irrelevant to their dishonest claim."

    iLOL
    I do not need a site, liberal or otherwise, to tell me what I already know.
    As I previously pointed out, this issue has never been determined by the Supreme court.


    A Citizen is not the same as a natural born Citizen.
    The founders knew there was a difference and it is why they made the distinction.

    Go on... I'm listening.
