I wanted to make sure this didn't get lost in today's thread.

I would like to see Rush interview all three on his show.

IIRC, Marco and Bobby have nbc issues, and Mr. West (as well as Mr. Rubio) JUST GOT THERE! They still need directios to find the men’s room!

I like all three, but only one appears to be a natural born citizen.

According to some Freepers around here, neither Bobby Jindal nor Marco Rubio are natural born citizens eligible for the presidency.

Somebody should call Rush and set his straight.

I’d love to hear that conversation.

And keep in mind that these are just off the cuff names that Rush threw out due to their allegiance to conservatism and certainly does not presume an endorsement by Rush........

With that being said, git yerself some popcorn cause here comes the Rush bashers and other nefarious sorts who will take offense.........LOL!

Yes, he did and he got a hot email from me immediately afterward for pushing 2 non-natural born citizens (Jindal and Rubio) for the presidency.

He should know better than to stir up NEW eligibility controversies especially when the men in question have refused all interest in running for prez or VP in 2012.

They are being decent about it because they know the truth and they are true patriots. Just not NBCs, sadly.

Do you reckon that everyone who does not promote Palin must be afraid of her?

How about Lima beans. I don't like 'em, don't recommend 'em.

Does that mean I'm afraid of Lima beans? Or just that I don't like them?

I am actually glad that Rush doesn’t talk about the NBC issue, he’s an idiot on the topic.

One of the three is not an NBC and Rubio isn’t NBC.

I don’t have time to call Rush but I have a feeling that he or “Snerdley” read the email because I didn’t hear anymore about Jindal or Rubio the rest of the show.

Rush understands the Constitution. And he surely understands that those two guys were born of non-citizen parents. He was probably tossing out some chum just to see what came up.

Well, I think he got the answer rather quickly.

Given his position, his picks are also like a chess move — you move the weaker pieces out first. Rush surely understands the NBC issues with Jindal and Rubio. He moves them up to block a Christie play, and keep the field open for a Palin.

Last time around Rush’s picks started dropping one by one until he was left promoting Mitt Romney against McCain and Huckabee. After Romney dropped out Rush stooped to Operation Chaos. Hopefully Rush won’t back Palin until She’s the only one left standing.

I’ve heard good things about West, but haven’t taken the time to check out his stated positions on a number of issues. He may be the guy, though it can be tough to jump into the big time only a few months into a first term in the House.

I think Rubio is a closet open-borders supporter, and that rules him out for me. We have to stop the massive invasion; it’s killing us.

Jindal is a smart guy, but is too weak to go up against the hardened leftists.

I just hate to see Marco, especially (our FL senator), pressured on this.

He doesn’t want any part of the presidential fray, wants to do a good job in the Senate, and seems to want to stay there.

He seems very determined to me.

Would you like to see the liberals attack him on this issue?

I'd pay good money to see that...

I know that Jindal’s parents were not citizens when he was born, but has that been confirmed with Rubio’s?

Both Jindal and Rubio were born in the United States. Not sure if their parents were citizens at the time of birth.

Allen West is on the top of my list anyway. One hundred percent American.

Since when not being a NBC an obstacle to the presidency? Naw, we can’t get bogged down in trivial details such as this. All either one would have to do is lawyer up and seal their records. Problem fixed!

So far West hasn't disappointed me. I met him at the Freeper convention and was very impressed.

At the time I was thinking Palin / West, then Bachmann, West, then Cain / West, but why not the best first — West / Cain.

Remember—when the MSM and the left criticize West, it’s only because they’re racist. There’s no other reason.

I stopped listening to Rush when he extolled how valuable illegal aliens were for our economy. GAG!

Now that was a few years ago and thankfully he became wise and stopped making those statements. I returned as a faithful listener.

Then, in the past couple years, Rush has said that a Constitutional lawyer (Mark Levin?) told him there is no difference between a “native born citizen” and a “natural born citizen”.

(sigh!)

If true, why did our founders make a distinction in the U.S. Constitution between “citizen” eligibility for Congress, and “natural born citizen” eligibility for the Presidency?

If the only requirement to be President is to be born here, then any anchor baby could grow up to be CIC, no matter what citizenship his/her parents possessed.

It defies logic to believe the founders, who had just fought a brutal war with the most powerful empire on earth, had not thought this out. I’m certain they intended to prevent a person with dual loyalties from ever becoming President and Commander-in-Chief.

The Law of Nations is mentioned in Article I, so the Constitutional congress did read it, and the book was present during debates. Furthermore, it is natural law that a child born in a nation to citizen parents is a citizen, a natural born citizen: a legal statute isn’t required for natural law.

I believe Rush is a Trump man. He sometimes plays devil’s advocate on his show and points out negatives when conversing with Trump callers, but I think that’s just to give the appearance that he hasn’t selected a horse in this race.

You are right. There is a difference. We don’t give citizenship to everyone born here. The children of foreign diplomats are not currently given citizenship.

Here are three threads from 2008 mentioning Jindal as a possible presidential candidate. There is not a single mention of two citizen parents being required for natural born citizen status.

Because any citizen, including naturalized citizens (eg.Joseph Cao or Lincoln Diaz-Balart) can be congressmen but they could not become president.

Rush talked about Sarah and how he truly likes her... he complimented her and listed Sarah and Trump as the only two actually criticizing obama... and he defended Sarah against those trying to destroy her and her family. She has not announced yet and he was asked by a caller to name some conservatives that had not announced yet, that he liked and Rush then listed these three. The caller brought up West earlier in the call.

Exactly. Which is why immigrants are not eligible! Their children, who have been born here and spent there whole lives here, have no knowledge of the land of their parents except for what they’ve been told or maybe a visit or two, otoh, clearly are eligible. I have seen nothing codified in American law that prevents either Jindal or Rubio from being considered natural born. They would make a great ticket one day.

I know a lot freepers on here don't agree, but most legal scholars believe that all it takes to be a “Natural Born Citizen” is to be born here.

They are cranks. Both Rubio and Jindhal were born in the USA and are as qualified as Spiro Agnew wrt NBC, and nobody raised an objection to Agnew as VP.

>> Mr. West ... JUST GOT THERE! They still need directios to find the men’s room!

I can’t deny that Allan West is new. On the other hand, in his grasp of the issues and ability to think on his feet he is head and shoulders above nearly *all* legislators in ability — not just freshmen.

Then, too, he has one sort of experience that I prize very much in a candidate — actual management and leadership experience.

I’d vote for Allan West for POTUS in a heartbeat.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Rush is kind of messing with people’s heads a bit.

Never forget, he’s an entertainer . . . yeah, he’s an opinion-shaper, too, but he also shapes the opinions of the opposition—you KNOW they listen to every word he says. If he sounds like he’s leaning towards somebody, Media Matters and the rest of them have to start up the smear factories and opposition research operations.

Maybe he’s trying to get them to chase their tails a bit—turn a bit of reverse-Alinsky chaos loose on them.

I’d be astonished if Rush actually came out and formally endorsed anybody much before this time next year . . . if he actually does “endorse” at all before somebody wins the Republican nomination.
