This Ted Cruz birther stuff would continue even if an angel came down and affirmed his eligibility.

If conservatives cannot even discuss these sorts of issues amongst ourselves, what are we going to do when the leftist media gets involved? We need to present a strong case.
For the record, I like Senator Cruz quite a bit. I do agree with the FReeper who said Cruz has very little executive experience. If I had to choose between someone weak on conservative ideology but strong on executive experience, versus someone who was solidly conservative with little experience, I’d probably go with the latter. Nevertheless, it’s reasonable to acknowledge the lack of experience.
The same thing goes with Cruz’s citizenship. He makes the point that he was brought here at four years of age, and America is all he’s ever known. Illegal alien dreamers like to make the same point. It’s hardly relevant to whether one is a natural born American citizen or not.
Jim Robinson makes the point that Senator Cruz was an American at birth even though he wasn’t born in the USA. That’s a reasonable point. Does “natural born” mean something different than American by birth, i.e. not naturalized?
