You aren’t crazy. Just naive.
1. Our “media” is terrified of the FCC and the Administration. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS will not investigate or report. Fox will a little, until Rupert gets a call from Obama’s people.
2. Half the country is brainwashed to think that any criticism of Obama is racism and racism is bad.
Don’t waste your time. “Country Joe” Stalin has been reborn as “Urban Barry” Obama.
Rubio paired with either Newt or Rick might have positive advantages.
Their ain’t anything that is going to rescue a Romney ticket.
The media and Obama are salivating at the prospect of being able to use Romney’s Progressive Liberal record against him.
When John McCain ran against Obama for president ,right away McCain was challenged by the press as not being a natural born citizen because McCain was born in Panama. The same standard was not applied to Obama as we well know. - tom
No - only Rubio docs would be checked.
End the DNC’s war on Hispanics.
The GOP is in on the game.
I don't think that any conservative that gets on Romney's ticket will even help him. Me thinks it would be politically damaging to that person. Look how Palin even had damage to her credibility from some of her strongest supporters for endorsing McCain. People look to her to be independent vs giving respect. I was let down she did that. If she or Marco helps Romney ticket, their political future will be tarnished since many conservatives are very committed to their distrust of Romney. I pray she does not do it-she will have a hard time running for president. She needs all conservatives behind her. Imo.
There is no such thing as the Hispanic vote. The term was invented by the dems, and refers to Mexicans, the largest Latino group in the US. Rubio is Cuban - the other Latinos won’t vote for him.
Doesn’t matter...Paul Ryan is thinking about it :))))
From what I have read, Rubio, Santorum and Romney are all on the same questionable “Natural Born Citizen” boat.
Here, I will save everyone the trouble:
1. There is ONLY. I repeat ONLY, two types of "citizenship" status in this country that carry LEGAL weight in this country:
1. U.S. Citizen by BIRTH / "born under the jurisdiction of the United States"
2. U.S. Citizen by NATURALIZATION
There is no "third" category of "CITIZENSHIP" like "Natural Born" citizen. You are either ONE (a U.S. Citizen by Birth) or the OTHER (a U.S. Citizen that has been Naturalized).
You can debate the issue of "Natural Born" under the Constitution all you want (much like how many angels can dance on a pin's head), but if a person was BORN in this country and their parents were not diplomats or other recognized government officials from a foreign country", CURRENTLY, they are legally a U.S. Citizen. It doesn't matter if both parent were here on a vacation from Jupiter, the person born here will be considered a U.S. Citizen under the laws of this country (look it up).
The Obama situation is clearly a "situation" if it can be proven that he was NOT BORN in the USA. If you can't prove that, there is no case! Period. I doesn't matter if his father was from North Korea or Saudi Arabia. If he was born in the USA, he is a U.S. Citizen by Birth!
If Marco Rubio was born in the USA, and his parents were here on vacation, he is "U.S. Citizen by Birth". Period! The guy can run for any office in the land!
Questions in 2008 about McCain’s eligibility produced no such compulsions to expose Obama as you suggest.
Two wrongs don’t make a right, but that’s the precedent you’re suggesting.
I think it’s an interesing thesis and I’d be fascinated to see what happened.
Makes me want to chant, Rubio for President!
Neither of the Rubio parents was a citizen at the time of the blessed event. This is a shabby attempt to use the Mombasa MF as a precedent ... for himself and for whomsoever the GOP establishment cares to select to lose to him.
Say, I too have a crazy idea! Why doesn't the SCOTUS get its lazy black-robed bottom off its high horse and agree to hear the next case on eligibility that comes before it.
You want to know all there is to know about Constitutional eligibility? Read Donofrio's Amicus Brief to the "Disappointment in Georgia."
It would accomplish just what the commie Democrats want, what the commie RINOs want, and apparently what you want.
No amount of paper is going to "prove" that either Obama, Rubio, or Jindal are Natural Born Citizens, because neither of them are, and this fact is already known about all three.
None of the three were "born in the country to parents who were both themselves citizens at the time of birth".
Neither are anchor babies. Neither are the half-alien children of someone who took a foreign spouse, and who were born while one parent was not a US citizen. Neither are people who have dual citizenship with any other nation in the world.
Shred the US Constitution a little at a time, and it will mean less and less. Ignore this clause; usurp that one; twist this or that piece out of shape in the courts and public opinion; eventually you will have rendered it totally meaningless and useless as a blueprint for the structure of US government.
So here we are already. The US government, as a union of the several states, exists only as a contract between the states and between the people of those states. Destroy that contract, and the USA is only a figment of the imagination of the thugs who will insist on holding it together at the force of gunpoint.
“Would a Rubio VP run force Obama to prove he is a Natural Born Citizen?”
No. But it might prove that Rubio is not.
Beware of double-edged swords — swing it the wrong way, and.....
