Dick Morris’ recent column urges Romnesty to pick Rubio.
While Morris makes an interesting purely POLITICAL point, he conveniently OVERLOOKS the CONSTITUTIONAL question about Rubio’s eligibility.
Though Rubio has waffled on a few issues lately, I respect his general conservatism, which almost certainly flows from his parents having fled the nightmare of Castro’s Marxist island prison.
But therein lies the problem: Rubio’s PARENTS do not meet the necessary requirement of “natural born” for which Obama is today being challenged in a Florida court. In fact, Larry Klayman, attorney for the DEMOCRAT plaintiff in that case, made a glancing reference to the ineligibility of both Rubio and Bobby Jindal in his presentation to Judge Lewis on 6/18.
Look folks, either we HAVE a Constitution or we DO NOT. If Rubio, the son of parents who fled one form of ONE MAN TYRANNY, offers for or is tapped for VP, will he not be furthering the accelerating destruction of the very document the Founders left us to prevent our becoming a nation of men as opposed to a nation of LAWS, the Constitution being the primary exemplar?
And if the Hispanics here legally and otherwise help Obama to a second term on the basis that the rule of law and the Constitution are not important, they have only to look to Cuba to see where THAT will lead. They will have helped turn here into there and will no longer have a here to which to flee the tyranny.
In case you havent noticed, were in the process of CHOOSING SIDES in America.
Which side are YOU on??
And Morris predicted Rubio as the VP pick. So it is a good bet he would not be picked since Morris tends to get it wrong.
But therein lies the problem: Rubios PARENTS do not meet the necessary requirement of natural born for which Obama is today being challenged in a Florida court. In fact, Larry Klayman, attorney for the DEMOCRAT plaintiff in that case, made a glancing reference to the ineligibility of both Rubio and Bobby Jindal in his presentation to Judge Lewis on 6/18.
Klayman would be correct that Rubio is ineligible for VP, and since that Cuba also makes claim by law to Marco Rubio as one of their own citizens. Rubio was born to Cuban citizens at the time of his birth. Cuba ONLY sees him as Cuban. They do not recognize Rubio's US 14th Amendment citizenship.
The Government of Cuba does not recognize the U.S. nationality of U.S. citizens who are Cuban-born or are the children of Cuban parents. These individuals will be treated solely as Cuban citizens and may be subject to a range of restrictions and obligations, including military service...."
This also a very good reason why Rubio is not being vetted by Romney as a VP candidate. See Breaking News for the story.
And p.s.:.there is no such thing as a “Hispanic”. Mexican-Americans are not going to vote for the son of white Cuban exiles. Because most other South Americans who are here, especially those who are part Indian, love, worship and adore Chavez and Castro.
