Skip to comments.Marco Rubio on FOX News Sunday - Grand Slam!!! (Vanity)
Posted on 05/06/2012 4:09:01 PM PDT by Homers-odd-I-see
I've been torn between Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida for the GOP Vice Presidential spot. Marco Rubio was on "FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace" today. OMG, the dude was AWESOME!!! He did not miss a step; sharp, sensible, intelligent answers to every question. I was amazed at how smart this guy is. Don't know for sure, but, you might be able to see the interview on FOX News.com
Yep, Marco Rubio is my guy for VP.
According to a Human Events article, Rubio is good to go.
“Marco Rubio is a Natural Born Citizen, just like John Fremont and Chester Arthur.”
It was trollish liberal BS.
Read the case. It' s there.
It takes a real mental midget to make as many mistakes as you did in so few letters. Bye.
Well, bye. Midget.
You mean this:
“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens.”
If so, that does not nearly resolve the issue. In fact, it explicitly refrains from considering the issue.
Oh, knock it off.
"Attorney Herb Titus, who has taught constitutional law for nearly 30 years and was the founding dean of the College of Law and Government at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., is offering a correction to Fox News anchor Bret Baiers explanation of natural born citizen.
The issue arose this week when Baier posted online his explanation of natural born citizen and said that the issue is resolved by federal law. He pointed to 8 U.S. Code, Section 1401, contending all that is required is for the mother to be an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for five years or more, at least two of these years after the age of 14.
The question arose in the context of concerns he was observing regarding the eligibility of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who was born before his parents were citizens of the U.S.
Baier asserted that people born in the U.S., born outside the U.S. to parents who are both citizens or born outside the U.S. to one parent who is a U.S. citizen are all natural born U.S. citizens.
Titus takes Baier to task.
Bret Baier commits a common error, he wrote in the response posted online at the Article 2 Superpac. He assumes that natural born citizen means the same thing as citizen by birth. They are not the same. A citizen by birth is one who by constitutional or statutory provision is made or recognized as a citizen based upon where or to whom they were born.
He continued, Under Mr. Baiers view, a natural born citizen, then, is a citizen of a particular nation only by positive law. If a natural born citizen is defined by statute, as Mr. Baier claims they are, then by statute Congress can take away their natural born citizenship status, subject only to the 14th Amendments definition of citizenship by birth. And even that citizenship can be taken away by an amendment to the Constitution. Indeed, according to Mr. Baier, no one could have been eligible to be elected president UNLESS Congress passed a statute designating ones citizenship by birth, or until the 14th amendment definition of citizenship by birth was ratified.
The issue has been in the news since Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008. Questions about his eligibility have yet to be resolved, as hes continued to conceal many personal documents."

Rubio would let him campaign about Blue Hairs losing Medicare (which would be a real yuck yuck).
There are others out there with just the hook 'bama wants.
Actually all the candidates approved by the money guys behind Romney have some serious failings ~ since they all want to argue for Democrat ideas.
We must take care of our OWN first.
Do you really think peeps will let rubio or jindal slide from the natural born issue.
Uh.....yeah. They didn’t give a crap about B. Hussein Obama’s NBC status or the fact that Bill Clinton got oral sex from a girl near his daughter’s age. People don’t care about that.
You’re probably right.
Oh, I see. You consider the millions of illegals and their spawn as "playing". I guess Rubio considers it playing, too?
I also see you are not even willing to try to convince me of anything so you gave up, insulted me and got all indignant over nothing.
BTW, we have negative Mexican immigration now, so the job market has taken care of this problem all on its own.
Ha ha! Oh yeah, millions of them are just going to leave. What about the Peruvians, Ecuadoreans, Dominicans, etc.? Are they leaving, too?
Hey folks, we have a FReeper who actually believes the government's lies.
Wait until the birthers come here.
Nice that a supposed FReeper uses a term of derision invented and employed by Team Obama!
Well, if the shoe fits, Bozo.... What’s really “nice” is that so many FReepers on here are so damn hard-headed and mean-spirited that they are willing to give us four more years of Barack Obama. Why don’t you move on over to the DU, traitor.
Agree, Rubio did a great job in his interview with Chris Wallace. I’ve heard Rubio speak and have always been impressed. But, I’ve wondered if he was not yet ready for VP role. After this morning, I hope Romney picks Rubio. He answered every question very thoughtfully, thoroughly, and without hesitation. He also gave answers that he wanted to give vs what Wallace wanted to hear. He appears genuine and speaks plainly so all can relate.
The "truce" does not extend to Romney's selection for VP ~ I'd much prefer a full convention vote on that, and then only after some really serious credentials checks.
NO MORE OBAMAS.
No votes for gun-grabbing baby killers, traitor.
Got any sources to substantiate your accusations? And, btw, FAT PEOPLE ARE LAZY. Get off the computer and go get some exercise.
Thanks for your Post #32...it was....Brilliant.
