Panama Red

Is J. Sidney McCain the Panamanian Candidate that, once in office, will surrender to the Latin Americans, destroying America (the real one) from within?

WASHINGTON — The question has nagged at the parents of Americans born outside the continental United States for generations: Dare their children aspire to grow up and become president? In the case of Senator [J. Sidney] McCain of Arizona, the issue is becoming more than a matter of parental daydreaming.

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.

Well, certainly this brings into question whether McCain is a REAL American.

Let's let the republican controlled Supreme Court decide it!

By my count the court is still liberal:

Roberts: conservative
Scalia: conservative
Alito: conservative
Thomas: conservative

Stevens: liberal
Ginsburg: liberal
Souter: liberal
Breyer: liberal
Kennedy: swing vote/leaning liberal

But, you are correct in that it could be considered a republican court as Roberts, Alito, Scalia, Kennedy, Stevens, Souter, and Thomas were all appointed by GOP presidents.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, the only member of the court to be in the majority in all of this term's 5 to 4 decisions, has sided more consistently with conservatives.
