wow, so if I am on vacation while pregnant, say I am in the Bahamas chilling on the beach, and my baby comes early, my baby is not a citizen? Just want to clarify....
Fox has become ridiculous.
Cruz’s father was also a US citizen at the time of his birth.
Obama Sr however never had allegiance to anyone.
Here is the wider point.
If Obama was not held to these standards, why do you and Fox want to crucify Cruz?
And exactly how did this keep the Kenyan interloper from being elected to be HMFWIC twice???
I have a feeling that the people who will jump on Cruz’s “ineligibility” the most will be Obama’s demoncraps.
I would continue to push Cruz. Let’s see how the Democrats react. If the Democrats set a precedent with Obama, I don’t see why we should undermine Cruz.
Excuse Me! If you are born abroad to American Citizens you are an American Citizen by birth and most likely the birth was recorded at a US Consulate. John Mc Cain was born in Panama. Many US “Natural Born” Citizens are born abroad to U.S. Servicemen serving overseas. Are they ineligible too? You are $#%&%!
What does Sen. Cruz have to say about this?
I don’t have a TV but it seems, based on what I read, Fox is getting kinda nutty.
You are making Sarah Palin cry.
“because his fathers British Nationality ‘governed’ his birth status in 1961,
You don’t know the meaning of the word ‘governed’. Putting it in single quotes doesn’t make some magical definition for it.
Two Americans abroad give birth to a US citizen. Trying to redefine “natural” is also a stupid blunder by people trying to sound intelligent.
At least he’s honest about the circumstances under which he was born. It’s not like he’s manufacturing a fake birth certificate or anything. Just sayin’
He seems like a personable fellow, with some common sense and a good work ethic, but always find myself having to turn him off sooner or later.
And I won't be turning him back on for a while. That bit with Ted Cruz was the last I could handle.
We have enough stupid educating the ignorant as it and he took it to a national audience. Cruz sorta lawyered out of it, accurate, but not.
Fine. Rand Paul can make Cruz Attorney General. Works for me! Allen West can be VP.
Wrong. Obama is ineligible because his father was not citizen and his mother wasn’t eligible by laws at the time to confer citizen by herself alone.
How old Ted Cruz’s mother was at his time of birth, along with immigration laws at the time is what makes his eligible or not.
Some of you birther people are just head cases. Getting somewhere? It's like your determined to find people who aren't ineligible to run for President. Ted Cruz is an excellent Senator and absolutely someone who may have a presidential future. Fox News is very likely WRONG in this case.
Here is a discussion about this very subject in the LA Times:
The TLDR version is that Cruz has an American mother so he's obviously an American citizen, and people with similar birth situations (outside the US) such as McCain and George Romney would have been eligible if they had won. So far no one has challenged a presidential candidate born outside of the United States. I think Ted Cruz is probably eligible and based on what I've seen so far, I hope at some point he runs and wins.
FNC hit piece?
born in the USA and age requirment finishes.
no three types of citizenship, just two.
LOL! Everyone talks about 'natural born' yet acts as if it only takes a single parent to make a baby.
Cruz is a statutory citizen, but not a 14th Amendment one. 14th Amendment statutory citizens stem from a perversion of the purpose of the Amendment itself in the mid 1960's. Despite what Congress syas, children of foreigners are NOT Citizens of the United States under the Original Intent of the 14th Amednment.
Natural born refers to your natural parents. Cruz's natural parents were Cuban and American, so he was a dual citizen at birth and became a naturalized American when he chose which nationality he would claim upon reaching the age of majority.
He is not eligible for the Office of President...although I sincerely wish he was.
My question is:If Fox is attacking Cruz’s eligibility why aren’t these yellow coward sons of beech’s attacking Obama?
He states as if it is a fact that Cruz is ineligible to run for POTUS.
When Sarah Palin first hit the scene a few years ago, he went on a tirade about how unimportant she was. He really tore her apart. Heh, changed his tune when he say he was so wrong.
This constitutional crisis was deliberately ignored by the media on behalf of Obama - whose British father’s allegiance was the reason for the Founder’s diligence.
Consider our 21st Century conundrum - what do we do in the future when the child of a LGBT couple has rented a womb - purchased an embryo of an anonymous egg donor and a prolific sperm donor?????? Parental citizenship - conception and place of birth are left off the birth certificate!!!
