Hi aptness. Have you forgotten the last election cycle in which J. McCain had to submit both his long & short form for a congressional inquiry to
prove his eligibility to run for President?
No, I didn’t, because that never happened.
Also, that B. Obama signed off on the resolution stating that J. McCain was eligible?
Yes, Obama co-sponsored a non-binding resolution
declaring the Senate’s understanding that McCain was eligible. That was not my question.
There are plenty of resources outside of WND that confirm this.
You only provided one.
One article you might want to see is - www.newsmax.com...
In that article it clearly says -
During the 2008 presidential campaign, GOP nominee Sen. John McCain quickly released his birth certificate when liberal bloggers raised questions
about his eligibility to be president. McCain was born at a military hospital in Panama.
I’ll help you a bit with the facts:
In February 2008 the New York Times published a piece that raised questions about McCain’s natural born citizenship status. Sen. Claire McCaskill
then introduced a bill called Children of Military Families Natural Born Citizen
, with the purpose of “clarify[ing] the law and ensure that children born to United States citizens while serving overseas in the
military are eligible to become President.
It didn’t go anywhere, and I believe there were some doubts about its constitutionality, so Sen. McCaskill later introduced
Senate Resolution 511
, the non-binding resolution expressing the Senate’s
understanding that John McCain was eligible.
There were no hearings, no one asked for or inspected McCain’s birth certificate or other documentation.
There was one question
in April 2008 by Sen.
Patrick Leahy, during an unrelated Judiciary Committee hearing, asking the Secretary of Homeland Security if he believed McCain was a natural born
citizen. Secretary Michael Chertoff answered “[m]y assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally
a natural-born American citizen
That was the extent of McCain’s “vetting process.”
From a Washington Post
The McCain campaign has declined to publicly release his birth certificate, but a senior campaign official showed me a copy.
The existing public copies of McCain’s alleged birth certificate are from the Hollander v. McCain
lawsuit, that Hollander provided, not
McCain. From Hollander’s sur-reply
in objection to
the motion to dismiss (p. 1)—
Plaintiff respectfully submits this Sur-Reply in order to address new arguments presented in defendants' Reply and to submit Senator John
McCain's ("McCain") birth certificate in support of plaintiffs claim that McCain is not a natural born citizen of the United
This copy of McCain’s birth certificate provided by Hollander has never been confirmed as authentic.
You claimed “there are plenty of resources outside of WND that confirm” McCain submitted “both his long & short form for a congressional
inquiry,” can you show me more than one statement on one article of a conservative website?
Can you show me a confirmed and certified copy of McCain’s birth certificate? Short or long form. Does it have a seal? Is it signed by the
registrar? What’s the date of filing?
