Mr. McCain’s likely nomination as the Republican candidate for president and the happenstance of his birth in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 are reviving a musty debate that has surfaced periodically since the founders first set quill to parchment and declared that only a “natural-born citizen” can hold the nation’s highest office.The Senate considered the issue worthy of a vote declaring John McCain is eligible to be President. Senator Barack Obama co-sponsored the resolution.
Additionally, lawsuits claiming McCain was not eligible were filed and eventually dismissed by the courts for lack of standing. John McCain's long form birth certificate was released during this time. Here is a vault long form copy of John McCain's birth certificate from Wikimedea Commons.
See how easy that was President Obama? Incidentally, McCain's short form was also released, but it lacked information such as the hospital McCain was born in. Obama's short form has the same deficiencies.
Were the people who questioned McCain's eligibility reverse racists? Where was the media outrage? Why is there a double standard?
