Aw Pops, it's not supposed to work like that.

See, when they refer to any anti-DumBama person as a racist, you're supposed to freak out. You are supposed to convert because you certainly don't want to be label a racist. A racist is the most evil thing in the mind of a liberal.

Liberals really believe that the white guilt they feel can be cast upon you like a witches spell. When you are called a racist, you are supposed to run for the hills screaming like your hair is on fire. You are supposed to promise yourself that you will never, ever criticize DumBama in a negative way again.

So there you have it. McCain's citizenship was in question in regards to becoming President by the left. His father wasn't some radical from another country, his father was serving our country when they had a child. Two American parents having an American child overseas that became a POW fighting for our country as well.
Go back and read what I posted. At the time McCain was born, he was not a citizen of the US. The laws were changed a year after he was born, to make him a citizen. This is not some deceptive rumor --- they are facts as they were presented by well known legal scholars. That's as opposed to the lies about Obama, which had no basis in fact and were originally presented in anonymous emails.

You obviously CAN criticize Obama, you do it constantly. And you CAN call him names, give him a dirty look, or say rude things about his wife. But you shouldn't do those things because it just makes YOU seem juvenile and dumb.

Remind us if the Birth Certificate thing was all just a big waste of everyone's time. Now tell us why it just so happened to become an issue with our nation's first black president. Yah...blah blah blah. I hear your gums flapping but you ain't saying much. The fact that you think me pointing out documented facts is some absurd obfuscation, despite that fact that any of you have yet to post one thing false that I have claimed, but asking the black man a hundred times for his birth certificate is a Constitutional requirement, and not just a desperate GOP attempt to override the voting will of the American people. You guys roll like sleazeball lawyers trying to get a child molester client set free. Just a series of loopholes and stipulations in the place of truth or honor. I'll quit calling you guys a bunch of racists, the second you quit being just a bunch of racists. Until then, have a nice day you racist.
I was not & am NOT a 'Birther' but Yes, it was a waste of time, The waste of time was created by someone NOT being forthcoming from the start & that was Mr Transparent. IF memory serves me correctly it pretty much started with a simple claim of a b-certificate existing, then after some time there was a statement from some hospital official saying that yes, a b-cert existed, Then after another while, a copy was presented, then even after that there seems to have been statements from other Hawain state officials that they had personally seen the original. All of this protracted because state law forbade the hospital from releasing it without B.O.'s OK. So why didn't he simply give his OK? Which I am not sure that he has yet. You may ask or attack me for my not being sure but the reason that I am not sure is because I haven't been hung up on the issue.
Personally it seemed to me that someone would have to have whale size Kahoona's to perpetrate such B.S There were others fighting the fight.. So I didn't give it much waste of effort or thought.
As far as you pointing out DOCUMENTED FACTS in the post that I responded to, they must be somewhat hidden. You don't know me well enough to call me a racist & can not find a single racist remark posted by me so when talking about me or to me, you can keep the R word in your mouth, don't let it out.
As far as ...a series of loopholes & stipulations...you are right, That IS lawyers AND politicians of ALL ilk. & they just make me sick. ALL Politicians need to simply do their jobs as elected & quit wasting time & tax money playing their F'ing power trip games. Quit playing word games & quit blaming others. Just Man/Woman up & do the F'ing job!!

Yes, the requirement has always been there. But I don't remember George W. being challenged on his origins, nor Clinton, nor H.W. Bush, nor Reagan, nor Carter, nor Nixon... Not until the black man with the funny sounding name was running did it become an issue. For some it was racism, for others it was political opportunity (and for quite a few it was a mix of the two.)
Who initially made the challenge? What evidence did they present? It started as an anonymous rumor with no evidence to support it. We now know that it was just a slimy, political dirty trick. Obama eventually presented his birth certificate, which corresponded to newspaper reports of the time and what he had told us from the beginning. Those that spread the rumors were perpetuating lies.
With all respect, each of the presidents that you mentioned ( & MORE) had a much more exposed ancestry. Carter came from a long line of Georgia peanut farmers, served in WWII & had been a gov. Clinton had been a gov for several terms, political activist & more for years, Nixon had been vice pres & more, HW Bush & GHW came from prominent historically well known & written about families, pretty much similar about Reagan. Know what else they all had in common besides race? They were forthcoming IF & when asked for evidence & NONE had a non-citizen parent, grandparent or great grandparent.
Race had absolutely NOTHING to do the Bull$hit. Yes, there are racist among us. As employers, politicians, family & even sometimes friends but being White does NOT make the only racists, they come in all colors, such as the 90+% of blacks that voted for Obama. A number like that can NOT be defended as voting for his ideology. Many Blacks are clearly racist too.
But I totally agree that nasty B.S. politics was in the middle of the whole damn thing.

FULL QUESTION:

I understand John McCain was born in Panama. Doesn’t that make him ineligible to be president? I thought the Constitution said you had to have been born in a state.
FULL ANSWER:

John McCain’s father was an admiral in the U.S. Navy who was stationed in Panama in 1936, when McCain was born. This has led to speculation as to whether McCain is a U.S. citizen and whether he can be elected president, a question that was raised during McCain’s run for the Republican nomination in 2000 as well.

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."

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.

This is not the first time the question has been broached in a presidential election. Fellow Arizonian Barry Goldwater was born in the Arizona territory before it was a state. And Mitt Romney’s father, George, ran for president in 1968, though he was born in Mexico. Like McCain, both were born to U.S. citizens and, therefore, considered to be American citizens.

How about offering some facts to support that assertion, Pops? Obama released his birth certificate in 2008, before the election, and soon after the rumors started.

"Expressed belief in such theories has persisted despite Obama's pre-election release of his official Hawaiian birth certificate in 2008; confirmation, based on the original documents, by the Hawaii Department of Health; the April 2011 release of a certified copy of Obama's original Certificate of Live Birth (or long-form birth certificate); and contemporaneous birth announcements published in two Hawaii newspapers. Polls conducted in 2010 suggested that at least one quarter of adult Americans said that they doubted Obama's U.S. birth, while a May 2011 Gallup poll found that 13% of American adults (23% of Republicans) continued to express such doubts."

Facts to assert what assertion?
I will say that Obama did NOT clarify his nation of birth or there would have been NO 'news' story to perpetuate. That is unless the media created a non-story.
I also did NOT post any doubt about my thoughts of Obama's citizenship. I may have been apathetic because I am apathetic... I was rather clear about that....I don't care about the issue so what is your point to me?
Come on OG. I made NO assertions that picked any side of the issue of the 'Birther' argument. In fact, I said that I don't give a $hit about it. So I don't quite understand your post as it may pertain to me.

#28629 May 22, 2014
Just to clarify...IF Obama's mother was a U.S.A citizen, of which I have no doubt, I don't care if he was born on the top of Mount Everest, He would be a U.S.A citizen even IF having multinational citizenship which is very possible in any number of scenerio's. Multiple citizenship is NOT a crime or a disqualification to be president.
That opinion may not be inarguable but it is still my position.
So again, I am not understanding of your response to my previous post.

People ought to put this birth certificate thing to rest. Need to worry about our president making America the laughing stock of the world. He has numerous scandals he keeps covering up and a media who thinks he walks on water. He finds out about VA wrongdoing in the paper. Bengazi is another scandal. Does he have a sign on his desk that says "the buck stops here". I doubt it

Here's the part of the "FULL ANSWER" that you didn't post:

"This is not the first time the question has been broached in a presidential election. Fellow Arizonian Barry Goldwater was born in the Arizona territory before it was a state. And Mitt Romney’s father, George, ran for president in 1968, though he was born in Mexico. Like McCain, both were born to U.S. citizens and, therefore, considered to be American citizens.

However, both of those candidates were unsuccessful in their bids – and so a smidgen of uncertainty remains. If McCain wins the presidency, the constitutionality of these congressional statutes could be challenged in the courts. Members of Congress have expressed this fear and proposed a more explicit law, or even a Constitutional amendment. Neither has been adopted."

Like I said the first time, unless McCain decides to run again, this technical point is moot.

When I saw this I asked you for facts to justify that assertion, that Obama was not forthcoming about the details of his birth. I posted a link that showed that Obama had released his birth certificate during the Democratic primaries in 2008. Instead of providing facts, you just doubled down on asserting "it was Obama's fault":

No, my assertion may be wrong, but it's not "juvenile" or "dumb." Making fun of someone's name or physical characteristics is something that most folks quit doing after grade school. That's why it's regarded as "juvenile" behavior. It is a "dumb" thing to do because it makes others think less of you, and inclines them to disregard your opinions. Is that what you want?

He's fairly well regarded here in Western Europe and in the South East Asian cities I visit the most often (Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai, Beijing, HK) for work. Rather than making the US a laughingstock in these areas, his presidency has really seemed to raise the status of America and Americans, making it significantly easier to live, work and travel overseas as an American, over the previous administration.

I could care less what anybody thinks of my opinions. They are what they are.

And my opinion is that using this "black" thing is no different than using insults like juvenile or dumb. It's just a feeble attempt to stop people from making fun of your King. But the reverse psychology method never worked on me. I can see right through it. Then again, maybe you don't even realize why you are using it.
