Say what you will about the birthers, but dont call them partisan.
The people who brought you the Barack Obama birth-certificate hullabaloo now have a new target: Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a man often speculated to be the next Republican vice presidential nominee. While theyre at it, they also have Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana and perhaps a future presidential candidate, in their sights.
The good news for the birthers is that this suggests they were going after Obama, whose father was a Kenyan national, not because of the presidents political party. The bad news is that this supports the suspicion that they were going after Obama because of his race.

I'll have to check out the comments in WaPo to see how long it takes for this to be pointed out...
What else can you expect from Dana Milbank?
The red herrings are falling from the sky already.....
Anything to keep the attention off of the fraud and crime that is the Democrat party now.
Hey, I have a solar company that needs a bail out.....
No, Washington Post, this won't get you off the hook. You are a NEST of Communists and perverts.
I’m sorry to hear that Rubio might not be eligible. Unlike Obama, he is an American, and proud of his country.
The players are the same as the real game, but the birthers can create their own party “draft” with their own qualification rules, and their own imagined election results. I'montosomethinghere...
I wish we could have disqualified John McCain before he sunk the ship.
His parents birthplace are not an issue.
Hasn’t he read Joseph Farah who said that Rubio isn’t qualified?
Milbank is a jerk. Just because Obama is an illegal alien usurper doesn’t mean that conservatives should abandon the Constitution too.
If the Democrats cheat, lie, and steal, would it really help the country if Republicans did the same thing, just because the Democrats did it?
Rubio doesn’t qualify, and neither does Jindal.
But there is one big difference. Neither Rubio nor Jindal has lied to the people in order to become President. Obama did, with the help of Nancy Pelosi, the DNC, and a complicit press who failed to vet him.
Well, actually I suspect they know just as well as we do that the latest COLB is a forgery, just like the earlier one, and that Obama has covered up all sorts of things, with their eager help.
You might want to rethink your bigotry towards Rubio:
The Cuban Refugee Program was authorized by the President of the United States in February 1961. Federal assistance for Cuban refugees had begun in 1960 under President Eisenhower in response to the growing number of Cubans fleeing the Castro regime. President John F. Kennedy, recognizing that the situation was beyond the scope of individual states and volunteer agencies, assigned responsibility to the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), at the time Abraham Ribicoff, who delegated implementation and administration to William L. Mitchell, Commissioner of Social Security. The Migration and Refugee Assistance Act, enacted in 1962, provided the legislative basis for the program and authorized appropriations. The Florida State Department of Public Welfare, representing the federal government, set up an office in Miami for the assistance, child welfare services and medical care of Cuban refugees.
The Miami Cuban Refugee Emergency Center, located at the Freedom Tower, 600 Biscayne Boulevard, became the focal point of refugee registration, assistance, relief and resettlement, as well as coordination of government and independent agencies programs. Federal funding provided for the centers operations, record keeping, publications, coordination of agencies and research on different aspects of the refugee situation, as well as for programs. The latter included financial assistance, educational loans, health care, adult education and re-training, resettlement and care of unaccompanied children. By 1962 between 1500 and 2000 Cubans were arriving weekly.
In 1963 the newly formed Welfare Administration succeeded Social Security in overseeing the Cuban Refugee Program. The decrease in influx of refugees following the cessation of regular flights and the implementation of programs such as home visits facilitated the transition from crisis response to a more efficient, better organized program.
In the years to come, however, the program would have to adapt to new emergency situations such as the arrival of Bay of Pigs Brigade 2506 prisoners in 1963 and the Camarioca boatlift of 1965. Perhaps the most taxing year was 1980 when the Mariel boatlift brought more than 125,000 Cubans to the United States. Simultaneously, Haitian refugees had started to arrive in growing numbers. The federal government declared a state of emergency and charged the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with processing and assisting the entrants. On July of the same year the Cuban-Haitian Task Force (CHTF) was created to coordinate federal resources in support of county and state efforts, and to address community problems related to the influx of refugees into the Miami area, replacing FEMA in this capacity.
The Center closed its last location on Ponce de Leon Boulevard and 8th Street on July 1994, after more than three decades of providing assistance to thousands of refugees. Its archives were donated to Professor Juan Clark of Miami-Dade College who in turn donated them to the Cuban Heritage Collection.

SEEMS PRESIDENTS HELPED THEM AFTER THEY ESCAPED THE COMMIE DICTATOR.
He's a real black man who unlike their usurper is eligible to be President.
born December 13, 1945 in Memphis, TN (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Luther Cain Jr., born March 16, 1925 in TN, died March 29, 1982 in Atlanta, GA
Lenora Davis, born July 27, 1925 in GA, died August 20, 2005 in Atlanta, GA
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Herman Cain is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama ISN'T!
Rubio meets all qualifications to serve as president of the US.
His parents birthplace are not an issue.
You are partially correct. His parents birthplace are not an issue. Their citizenship at the time of his birth is. They were NOT American citizens at the time of his birth which makes him a citizen, not a Natural Born Citizen. Rubio is NOT eligible because he is not a Natural Born Citizen.
Well, I have no idea how to add to your post.
Damnit. If Rubio isn’t NBC then that’s just the way it is. Sad, because he is one hell of an American, A fine man and an extraordinary Conservative talent.
Jindal isn’t NBC, so nothing to discuss there except, his credentials are the same as Marco’s.
Both would be great choices but for NBC.
Their citizenship status is the issue.
They were not US citizens at the time of his birth. They were citizens of Cuba making Rubio a dual citizen at birth whose parents were not under the jurisdiction of the US at the time.
Marco is a citizen of the USA but not an NBC.
The unprincipled Milbanks in the media like to pretend that people of principle just use it as a ruse.
Just as they use any handy argument as a ruse to disguise their real agenda.
I did not know 0Bama’s parents were US citizens at the time of his birth. I thought his mother was underage?
As soon as Barry produced his BC from Hawaii, birther issue just disappeared!
His parents birthplace are not an issue.
Are you sure? I hear that in order to be naturalized, you have to have your parents either born in America or citizens before birth of children. Not sure if either one of those was true on the day of his birth.
If Obama can serve as president - so can Bobby Jindal.
I have always wished he would announce. What on earth could the anti-birthers say?
