Racist: John McCain not sure if Ted Cruz a citizen eligible to be president

John_McCain_-_Guard_Association_of_the_United_States_General_ConferenceSen. [score]John McCain[/score], the alleged Republican senator from Arizona who, by the way, was born outside the country, said he’s not certain if [score]Ted Cruz[/score] is a natural-born citizen who is qualified to be president.

“I don’t know the answer to that,” he said Wednesday while appearing on KFYI 550’s Chris Merrill Show on Wednesday. “I know it came up in my race because I was born in Panama, but I was born in the Canal Zone which is a territory. Barry Goldwater was born in Arizona when it was a territory when he ran in 1964.”

McCain — who has always been highly critical of Cruz and supported Lindsay Graham for president — went on to say the Supreme Court may have to decide the issue.

Is America headed for a recession?

He also acknowledged not being a Constitutional scholar despite being in the Senate for so long.

But one person who is a Constitutional scholar said McCain’s full of crap.

The text of the law Levin linked to can be seen here.  And yes, Cruz is eligible.  Even Buzzfeed observed: “Cruz was a U.S. citizen at birth; his mother was a U.S. citizen living in Canada at the time.”

So — since it was considered racist to question Obama’s birth, all those now questioning Cruz’s birth are racists.
