The U.S. Senate just passed this Act declaring that John McCain, born in the nation of Panama (that’s not a state in the U.S.A.) is “a natural-born citizen.”
Isn’t that really convenient? This way, the nation gets to avoid various substantial ethics-violation charges and an impeachment if and as Panama-born McCain is ever elected to and then sworn into the Office of the President, an office that is restricted to and only to persons born in the United States of America.
So, now that restriction has been broadened to include McCain, a person born in Panama, born on a U.S. military base to U.S. citizen parents, he’s been tweaked into “natural-born” status by the Senate while he is anything but natural-born to any other definition of the expression. This is madness.
The fact is, the reality is, that McCain was not born in the U.S.A. and he’s not a “natural-born citizen.” Except, now the Senate declares him so, so, I guess that means the moon’s not made of creme cheese, except when it’s running for President.
