Here is a real mess, that is much more confusing than Obama's ineligiblity.
It has occurred to me that Mitt Romney, may not be a natural born citizen, and may not even be a US citizen. I'll give the facts as I know them, and let you all research the Immigration Laws.
When Congress started cracking down on polygamy, Miles Park Romney (Mitt Romney's great-grandfather) and many other families, left the United States, 5 March 1885, moved to Mexico and began their own settlement.
Mitt Romney's paternal grandfather Gaskell Romney (18711955), fathered George Wilcken Romney, however, remained in Mexico until events during the Mexican Revolution forced his family to move back to the United States, when his son was still young. The year they moved back is unknown, but, the revolution started in 1910.
Mitt Romney's father, George Wilcken Romney (July 8, 1907 July 26, 1995) was born in Colonia Dublán, Galeana, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua one of the Mormon colonies in Mexico on July 8, 1907.
Here is the core issue. Under today's immigration law, Gaskell Romney would be considered a US citizen, because both of his parents were citizens, both of whom, did live for a while in the United States, however, his son, George Wilcken Romney was born in Mexico, to US citizen parents who had not yet spent one day on US soil. So exactly what was George Wilcken Romney true citizenship status? I believe that he would have been required to apply for naturalization, but he did not. How can Mitt Romney be considered a natural born citizen, when his father was possibly an illegal alien , and not a US citizen?
I remember those, plus "Romney the Rambler", in much the same vein as "Hubert ("Dump the Hump") Humphry, whose mouth is full of tongue".
That isn’t the way that it is done son, you made a ridiculous claim, you can’t just make up silly stuff here.
Gosh I thought it was because Goldwater got 800 votes to Romneys 40 at the GOP convention...
Birtherism is mutating... “
I don’t think it’s mutating at all. I found this genealogical Romney factoid long ago and have always thought that the BO and handlers copied Mitt’s daddy. That’s why we are in this fix today.
Mitt is an anchor baby?
I really don’t know. This would all depend on what immigration laws were in effect in 1907. According to today’s laws, his father would not have been considered a US citizen.
the brainwashing comment was an excuse to keep Junior out of Vietnam...
With Daddys help, Mitt Romney managed to dodge the draft two times and sit out the war in a mansion in Paris while better men were being killed and wounded in Nam...
If you want to know what Congress was saying about George Romney, here is the June 1967 Congressional record.
I thunk a thot oncet, too, but I fergot it.
I wonder if it could be referring to the liberal, relativists, who have seen the light and are on the way to shed their beastliness for conversion?????
That isnt the way that it is done son, you made a ridiculous claim, you cant just make up silly stuff here.
What fact did I present that was not true?
Read post 28, can’t you figure out what it says?
Good article. However, it states that Mitt’s dad was a dual citizen. I don’t know what that means for Mitt.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
All that means anything to the son of George Romney as far as eligibility is that George Romney was a citizen as was his wife, at the time of their son’s birth in the United States.
Interesting factoid tho, that George Romney was ineligible for the Office of the President, according to that cited Congressional record.
The beauty of those men who actually argued and thought through the issues of that day in Congress is astounding — in contrast.
Thank you sir. It’s good to see, there are still a few people that can actually deal with the facts.
No problem. I deal with the un-factual just about everyday.
We’re talking Mitt Romney, His Weirdness.
