Democrats can’t make an issue. Obama’s Kenyan father was never a US citizen.
Obama’s BC shows his father was a Kenyan who never was a US citizen. Last time I checked, he is running for 2nd term.
I have heard him mention Allen West in past interviews. Man would THAT rock the left! LOL!!!!
Who has standing to challenge it? That's the problem we face.
And now the barking moonbat contingent has been heard from and can't even spell their names.
anyone that would give citizenship to even one illegal alien isn’t fit to be President of the US!!!!
Rubio is liberal crap!
Reagan granted amnesty. I do not want amnesty but your "one issue" stance is not smart or even historically defensible. Get over yourself.
The point of EVERY election is to defeat the worst candidate.
Obama must go.
A congress critter would have standing since he is violating las they passed....
Also, conservative Mark Levin, who provided some of the legal analysis used to strike down the ObamaCare mandate under the Commerce Clause has also weighed in on the issue before and believes Rubio is eligible.
Also, you can't "no standing" is just a canard since that word doesn't mean what you think it does. Suddenly I'm seeing a pattern but I digress. It's a critical and crucial problem in our judicial system today. Real things happening that effect millions or even one, yet no one has standing to get the legal questions answered.
The Dems couldn't attack Rubio or Jindal without alienating immigrants. But they wouldn't have to, they have loony Birthers, supposedly on the Right, to do it for them.
Three types of citizenship are recognized by our government.: native born (Gov. Bobby Jindal); naturalized (Gov. Arnold Schwaznegger); and citizen-by-statute (Sen. John McCain).
All the above have equal rights. All can serve in Congress, either as a Representative in the House, or as a Senator in the Senate, as per the U.S.Constitution, Article I, Section 2, clause 2.
The following link will take you to the governments own Immigration Service web page describing the three types of citizenship.
Natural born Citizen isn't listed in the above link. It is NOT a type of statutory citizenship as per the Federal Government. It is ONLY an eligibility requirement for the U.S. Presidency per Article II, Section 1, clause 5, of the U.S. Constitution.
Natural born Citizenship was defined in the holding of Supreme Court Case Minor v. Happersett (1874). Virginia Minor, a suffragette, sued to run for the Presidency claiming that she qualified under the 14th Amendment of the U.S.Constitution.
The court unanimously determined that Virgina Minor belonged to that class of persons who were born in the United States of citizen parents, that she was a natural born citizen, and was not a citizen under the 14th Amendment.
This holding of Minor v. Happersett has been used in more than twenty other SCOTUS cases.
No one has the RIGHT to be President. The eligibility requirement of natural born Citizenship (jus solis + jus sanguinas: born in the U.S. of U.S. citizen parents) must be viewed as a means to prevent split allegiance for any President of the United States.
Uh... it was Clinton & Republicans in Congress who reformed it the first time and put in the work requirements that Obama's undone.
I've heard some good things about Ayotte.
If obama is eligible - then so are Rubio and Jindal. At least they love this country. That’s more than I can say for the squatter-in-chief.
Obama is NOT eligible. His father was never a U.S. citizen. The Democratic Party, among whom were Nancy Pelosi, committed fraud when they verified his eligibility.
BHO2 never claimed to be a natural born Citizen, just a native born citizen.
Just because Democrats ignore the U.S. Constitution and are lawless, doesn’t mean we Republicans should do the same. We start down that road, everything, even our liberty, is jeopardized.
Wrong. Both Jindal and Rubio (and let's throw in the not-guilty Nikki Haley while we're at it) are natural born American citizens over the age of 35. Read it. That's all it says.
Natural born simply means entitled to be an American by birth. As opposed to immigrating and applying for naturalization.
Since Obama is finishing his 1st term as president and about to run for 2nd term, and because his father (according to birth certificate) was a Kenyan who was never a US citizen, obviously no one cares if both parents were US citizens at the time of birth. Looks like if you have a US birth certificate even if it is from Hawaii, is sufficient eligibility to run for president, as Obama has proved. Anything else is irrelevant. But I will grant you it is a hot air topic on FR.
He has never proven his Article II Constitutional eligibility for the office. He has never proven he is a natural born citizen, born on American soil of two American citizen parents.
>> Hey Newt....Jindel and Rubino arent eligible under our Constitution....So I’m a little offended by you!
Cite the law that supports the little offense.
