Everyone trying to make their “favorite candidate” fit the letter of the law is not my idea of “right”.
Two citizen parents who is born in the USA was the law until all the abstractions of McCain and Obama. ( I am not saying McCain was wrong, only that congress saw the need to clarify a citizen stationed on an official duty area. Now Obama is another problem entirely, as is Rubio.)
If the Constitution needs to be updated for the current qualifications there is a process to do that!
And it could be why McCain was 'chosen' despite his fall in the polls/no money; and then a sudden rise/money flowed in from where?
I really doubt that what the framers had in mind was to make the children of soldiers serving in Germany ineligible.
There are a lot of kids born on US military bases to US citizen parents...and born in hospitals of foreign countries...and I really doubt the intentions of the framers was to say they couldn't one day be president.
No, it wasn't.
It was never, ever, EVER the law in the United States, and to say it was is simply a lie.
There is not one single significant authority in the entire history of the United States who EVER said it required birth on US soil PLUS two citizen parents for a person to be a natural born citizen or eligible to be President. NOT ONE.
The claim was made up out of whole cloth by birthers who didn't like Obama. Now the FALSE CLAIM is being turned against Ted Cruz.
