But many here think he is ineligible to run for POTUS due to birth in Canada. IMO if Obama is eligible, Cruz is eligible x 10.

Cruz is so feared and loathed by the LEFT he makes them apoplectic. Works for me.

They fear him because he threatens everything they have been doing for the last 70 years.

Sen Cruz: A Republican with stones. What a refreshing change.
Romney lost because a slew of conservatives didn’t vote for him and stayed home.

Cruz can bring them back.

Where is he on national security...I like his positions on everything listed but there never seems to be anything on his views on the WOT, national defense etc....

The left fears him more because he was a champion debater at Harvard. They know Hillary would look like deer in headlights going one on one against Cruz.

I guess those folks will find themselves voting for Alan Keyes (again) or Ron Paul (again)

The only question is whose heads would explode first, Democrats or GOPe Republicans?

Were either of his parents American citizens at the time of his birth. If that's the case, it doesn't matter WHERE he was born.

“Were either both of his parents American citizens at the time of his birth. If that’s the case, it doesn’t matter WHERE he was born.”

You may have a technical point. The counter point is that the democrats need to have their noses rubbed in their duplicity with their lack of vetting of Obama.

The democrats cannot say a word about Ted Cruz without implicating themselves. Putting him on the ticket would also, I think lead to a clarification of the terms used in various places making the eligibility requirements less obscure or possibly updated.

The democrats are waging total war upon the US. Those who oppose them may need to learn how to fight a little bit dirty too.

I’m with Ted.

Too bad he’s in the party of wimps, appeasers and those who limp along to retirement never wanting to ‘rock the boat’.

Take Obamacare for example.

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.

Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is X-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting three weeks for an appointment, then waits eight weeks to see a specialist, then gets an X-ray, which isn’t reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for six months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Don’t just stand there, Republicans, DO SOMETHING!
