Let's see how many people show up to defend the discord libs want to sow in the conservative base. Make no mistake, the libs are trying to take Cruz out early, and they think the birthers will help them do the deed.

Is this going to be the mother of all birther threads?

Many of them already are. Look at the threads around here on the subject.

Yup.

They’re just mocking Conservatives, that’s all. Reminding us that they control the narrative (sadly).

No legal question as to Cruz’s eligibility but questions about Obama’s the two faced media is mum.

All we want to know about BO is what his grades were and after 5 years, we still don’t know.

I haven't heard a word about Cruz's faith. He was raised Southern Baptist, but has roots in Catholicism.

That always works to throw the religious base into a tizzy.

Let’s take account, shall we?

(A) Obama’s father was not a citizen of Kenya at the time he was born, ostensibly on American soil. Consetrvatives across American point to this as an issue of his ineligibility.

(B) Cruz’s father was a Cuban citizen at the time he was born on Canadian soil. Conservatives point to his mother’s citizenship as proof of his status as an “natual born citizen”

Nah....there’s no disconnect along ideological lines in this argument.

Cruz is not an NBC. Must be of two citizen parents on US soil. Learned that in 4th grade in 1957.

If the ‘natural born citizen’ phrase has been retroactively redefined/twisted sufficiently for Obama (apparently including changes to laws that we weren’t aware of), then Cruz’ situation isn’t even an interesting question.

It is quite easy when you handover a story of corruption to them. You can harldy play the role of hypocrite by defending Democrat crimes and then engage in the same crimes yourself.

Sen. Ted Cruz can and already should have killed this problem instantly and responsibly by publicly acknowledging his own ineligibility and condemning Obama and the Democrats for their own eligibility crimes. AS it is now, Sen. Cruz is utterly destroying his own credibility by failing to take responsibility for this issue.

As a Conservative, I try very hard to play by the same rules whether it’s a Democrat or a Republican whose credentials are under review.

I believe Obama was born in Kenya. His mother was a citizen but his father wasn’t. End of story.

I believe Cruz was born in Canada. His mother was a citizen and his father wasn’t. End of story.

If that were all the story, I’d believe both to be citizens, but not natural born citizens.

Now, in Obama’s situation, he attended school in a foreign nation. Word has it he had to renounce his U. S. Citizenship to attend that school. If so, he is the shining star of illegal immigrants.

These are exactly the same type of preemptive strikes that the libs (and the GOP-E) made against Sarah Palin in 2009.

I am a Birther.

IMO Ted Cruz is not a NBC .

BUT if Obama can be President, so could Putin.

Obama is not a NBC either, so he has negated that requirement.

The Washington Post cannot have it both ways.
If they endorse Obama they must ignore questions of Cruz’s eligibility.

At this point in time Ted Cruz is my candidate.

I do not believe that Cruz is eligible. I recognize that plenty of conservatives have the opposite view. The fact that there is legitimate debate within the conservative movement on the issue does not bode well for his candidacy, as the media would surely push the issue to split conservatives and distract general election voters. That said, I think he is a great senator and a real asset to the nation. There are plenty of very important ways to serve the country without being the president. One senator can have a big impact (look at how much damage McCain has caused over the years, for one example). So I would be very happy if Cruz stays in his current position for a very long time. Out of 300 million Americans, can we not find an excellent conservative presidential candidate who is unquestionably eligible?

Øbozo and the dhimmis set the “standard” - now if they can still breathe they’re eligible.
