To the point however. I am the son of a foreign national and I am a natural born citizen and eligible for the presidency. No need for a resolution.
Unlike Obama, John McCain was not born in the United States so there were some legal questions about his eligibility for the office of president that hinged around the legal status of the Panama Canal Zone at the time of his birth.
Oh, thanks for YOUR service since you claim to know so much. Most everybody at one time got a "confidential clearance" and as far as your doper buddies go I bet they didn't admit to a "little blow" like Bobo did now did they? That IS in case you're not lying through your tooth.
Security clearances are based on disclosures and honesty. The concern is that one isn't hiding something that is potentially a black offense. Discloure is key. Besides, they never would have gotten by the lifestyle poly, if they had tried to hide what they did in college.
Seriously, man, you are way out of your element.
It cracks me up that chicken littles that have never served a day in their lives are such authorities. >shakes head<
"Beings I wasn't...."
Is this English?
The FBI background check is looking at your arrest, or criminal record. By itself, this will NOT qualify you for a security clearance. Many employers, including most school districts have this done as part of their employment screening process....but they don't have a clearance. Your FBI background check means jack. Just means you haven't been convicted of a felony.

As I said, if no piors, it's all about disclosures.
I served in Nam. Where did you, arm chair warrior, serve?
You are a loon to believe that Obama didn't, or couldn't get a confidential clearance". Utterly absurd. Obama has access to some of the most sensitive, compartmented secrets this nation has....
It's a given that Barry Hussein is a shiftless, lazy doper who is unfit for office.
Some of us like to hold our elected officials accountable.
But it seems the leftwingers like to live in a dreamworld, where the "Hope and Change" promised by a drug-damaged, cheap, common grifter is always going to happen "soon" ...
I'll call your link and raise you mine. You know, the one you said you didn't think existed? If you have troubles with my English please make my life easier by improving your spelling.
CONFIDENTIAL: Applied to information or material the unauthorized disclosure of which could be reasonably expected to cause damage to the national security.
SECRET: Applied to information or material the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.
TOP SECRET: Applied to information or material the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security.
It has been clearly established that the children of American citizens serving the government, born in Embassy's or military bases(US soil), are "natural born citizens". McCain, I believe, was born in a private hospital off base and therefore not on US soil. Accordingly, he was not a "Natural born Citizen" lacking jus soli. The Democrats obviously recognized this and proffered the "non-binding resolution" declaring McCain natural born. I suspect both Obama and Clinton viewed McCain as the weakest candidate the GOP could offer and wanted to make sure he could run. It may also explain why McCain raised no questions about Obama's eligibility.
"“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.” Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 168.
Might I also inject your source "Snopes" documented Mr. Obama being born at two different hospitals.
I see you are playing your little games again. Quoting a portion of a paragraph from Minor v. Happersett, without the remainder of the paragraph.
Gee, this court case specifically says it will not address the issue of children born of non-citizen parents. Yet you don't care; indeed, you want people to think it does.Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their [p168] parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens. The words "all children" are certainly as comprehensive, when used in this connection, as "all persons," and if females are included in the last they must be in the first. That they are included in the last is not denied. In fact the whole argument of the plaintiffs proceeds upon that idea.
Anyone wishing to expand the definition would have to bring the matter before the Court

How can you post your nonsense here without any kind of embarrassment?
This case specifically said the court would not resolve the issue of children of non-citizen parents, and Barack Obama had one citizen parent. This in no way substantiates your claim that "[t]o be a natural born citizen requires citizenship to be conveyed by jus soli AND jus sanguis(the citizenship of the parents)."
And again, what is the significance of where or whether the President attended Christmas church services?
