Can't a person be a Muslim or Christian or any other religion even if they are born in Hawaii?

You need to study the Constitution before you make such a claim. You are implying that McCain being born in Panama might disqualify him for running for the presidency. The Constitution states if an American citizen gives birth to a child no matter what country he or she is in that child is automatically an American citizen.

So my question is what is your point?

"He is not a Muslim and nor has he ever been. This is based on the color of his skin by a bunch of narrow minded bigots."

So 50% or more of the American voters won't vote for Obama because of the color of his skin? Let me ask you this Kathy. Would you vote for Obama if he was white over Hillary Clinton? If your answer is yes than wouldn't you vote for Hillary because she is a woman? See how your argument is flawed.
