I believe that since obama was not born as a natural born citizen of this great nation, the USA, then how can he even have the right to run for the presidency anyway? How can we allow someone to come into our government who is a muslim or islamic who is raised to hate us christian or jewish,people who believe in any other faith than muslim or islamic? This great nation was founded on the properties of GOD-and even though it has become a very large melting pot of different faiths, most of us will stand and tell the truth in regard to what we believe in, Don"t let this deceptor win vote McCain at least he has served his country and been proud to tell the truth.

"I believe that since obama was not born as a natural born citizen of this great nation..." Hmmm.

Anyway Angela - we do have a problem then. I guess both the Dems and Reps will have to select new candiadtes hey...

"John McCain was born August 29, 1936 in the Panama Canal Zone. It’s a common misunderstanding that the zone was a U.S. territory.

The US Constitution states, “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.”

“Natural Born Citizen” - “is where ONLY the natural act of one being born in a place determines the status of ones citizenship with no additional stipulations necessary to influence that status”

No law or court ruling has ever established the precise definition of a natural born citizen. It is generally agreed that a natural born citizen of the United States is any person born in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia. "

Hawaii was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959.

Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu Hawaii to Ann Dunham, a U.S. Citizen. He qualifies as a natural born U.S. Citizen.

Though John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, he was born at Coco Solo Naval Air Station to U.S. Citizen parents, and as military bases are generally considered to be United States property and therefore territory, he also qualifies as a natural born U.S. Citizen.

They are both eligible to run for the Presidency.

Their religion has nothing to do with their eligibility. Neither does their having cheated on their crippled first wife. (See how inappropriate that is?)

Let's keep it fair and balanced, and I don't mean the "Fox News" definition either. I mean actually fair and balanced.

Try laying out some facts on the economy, on health care, on education, on the mortgage crisis. These are the things I want to hear about from fellow Republicans, not tabloid speculation and outright slander.

Just as an extra:

The land that the US used for it's military bases was LEASED from panama - therefore not territory of the US - order under the rules of US law - so if you go by the letter of the law - he really was not born in the US.

But hey - I just added the comment to level things.

I agree - the US is probably in the most dire financial state it has EVER been in and people should choose wisely ...
