The same people who defend Obama’s legal status will use the opposite argument against Rubio ...and win.

Well, they should not be able to get away with using the opposite argument against Rubio on this natural born citizen issue.

I really think we need the courts to give a definitive ruling as to what “natural born citizen” means.

There should never be any controversy about presidential candidates qualifications. The standard needs to be explicitly defined, and then either you meet the standard, or you don’t meet the standard.

I’ve heard that the Supreme Court and other courts have privately studied this issue, but, up to now have chosen not to get involved regarding Obama.

Obama may well set a “de facto” precedent that, as long as you were born in this country, that’s enough to meet the natural born citizen standard.
