Natural born citizen? Wow, our standards are getting pretty low these days if that’s seen as a huge bonus...

Good idea. I definitely say THANK YOU!!!

I was gearing up for a fight, but now I can let Romney talk me into using him to vote against obama.

Picking Ryan goes a long way to making that happen.

NBC means Constitutional and that's the highest standard, not a low one.

Things go more smoothly when we start with Constitutionally eligible.

Just ask Lt. Col. Lakin.

They will as soon as they figure out which of Obama’s numerous social security numbers his records are listed under. That may take another four or five years.

There were many things that tipped the balance against Rubio. The non-NBC probably did not matter as much, considering that the GOP, Talk Radio, and the GOP media refused to discuss Obama Birth Cert and Eligibility

Romney people must have vetted well....because Rubio would have been a disaster. He is Cuban-Amer, which does not help with the Puerto Rican and Mexican-Amer voters. Rubio is pro-Amnesty/Open Borders. Rubio is also pro-Terrorist (protecting Human Abedin). Rubio also was involved in the Florida GOP credit card fiasco

Contrary to the claims of some of our more Liberal RINO Rubio supporters....a Rubio VP pick would have handed Obama another 4 yrs. The DNC would have gone thru the Rubio political baggage like a corrupt TSA clerk at the airport.

What Catholic Vote said about Paul Ryan yesterday:
 
Paul Ryan, Representative from Wisconsin's 1st District  

Life
Co-sponsored the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.

Voted to amend the health care law so that no federal funds may be used to pay for any part of any healthcare plan that offers abortion coverage.

Voted for the Abortion Pain Bill and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.

Voted to prohibit partial birth abortion.

Marriage
Voted for a resolution proposing a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.

Voted against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Religious liberty
Voted for the Religious Liberty Protection Act of 1999.

On the HHS mandate: “This is much, much bigger than about contraception. This is about religious freedom, First Amendment rights, and how this progressive philosophy of fungible rights of a living breathing constitution really clashes and collides with these core rights that we built our society and country around.”

Embryonic life
Voted against the Stem Cell Research Act of 2007, which would have required the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct and support research on embryonic stem cells.

Voted in favor of developing methods to produce stem cells without using human embryos.

What about diversity? We have the grand Muslim Brotherhood’s Kenyan fagot failure and I suggest we try a Senegali agnostic pedophile that doesn’t speak English but can teach us French.

It’s time to start the SPP, the Senegalese Pedophile Party that will eat the Communist Demonrat Party.

Yeah that’s the ticket!

What a relief! Romney is quite wise after all!
He wants to WIN! He knows his VP pick is vital.
Picking an ineligible Rubio (not a nbc!) who will be challenged by the conservatives will be a disaster for him - he will be attacked on both sides!
Romney appears to know he needs the conservatives, so he picks Ryan as the bridge to the conservatives.
Now watch those who won’t vote for Romney will be voting for Ryan.
I say Ryan is the ‘bridge to no-obama’!

As for me eligibility for POTUSA is a first/prime requirement for selection of any such candidate. It was one of the first Articles of the Constitution. The Founders intent for importance was up front and they recognized the consequences of not recognizing such. To make light of the Founders wisdom allows usurpers like Obama squeeze in for the purpose of changing/destroying the Constitutional basis of the USA. Being a ‘birther’ I want Obama exposed and with him and all his enablers and kiss-ups.

Wish it’d been a Southern Born Conservative but I’ll settle for a Natural Born Citizen which puts him leaps and bounds above the usurper and his foreign administration we have. Now, to get our enemies out of those key departments.

No because Rubio is also a natural born citizen in spite of birther theory.

Rubio's only been on the national scene just over one year. His choice to succeed him in the FL state house was discovered to be corrupt and a close friend of his is under investigation. These are the kinds of distractions that aren't needed in the 2012 campaign even though Rubio is not known to have been involved in wrong doing.

All citizens are not natural born. Citizenship has been based for centuries on the father's citizenship.

Rubio was born to two Cuban nationals. He was born here. That makes him at best a dual citizen, and an American citizen only due to the 14th Amendment, which had nothing to do with the eligibility requirements for President.

Thus, Rubio could be a Senator or a Congressman. But he can not be President.

Natural born was an added requirement so that the Commander in Chief would not be a person of divided loyalties.Natural born is born in the country of two citizen parents, and the definition was well known to the Founders, as two copies of Vattel were present in the deliberations in Philadelphia in 1787 which produced the Constitution. That is not "birtherism". It is history--our history as Americans. I know we don't agree on this, but your comment could not go unchallenged. Others can do the research and make up their own minds.

Dear friends,
What I think ("No") about whether or not Rubio, or Jindal, or Obama is a Natural Born Citizen doesn't matter. Neither does what you think (if "Yes").

None of us cashes a SCOTUS paycheck. It simply is not within our bailiwick to wax on and on about Minor vs Habbersett, or Wong Kim Ark, or various works by Puffendorf or Vattel. The fact of the matter is that the courts have abdicated their constitutional responsibilities. Why for example, is the child of two ILLEGAL immigrants held to be an American Citizen at Birth? That is certainly not the law here the way I read it. And in fact, it's certainly not the law anywhere else. In fact, the child born here of LEGAL aliens becomes a citizen upon naturalization, not automatically by reason of native birth.

At this point in our history, The SCOTUS must stop turning down those who appeal these citizenship cases before them on meretricious grounds. Our Republic needs to establish what is a citizen, who is a citizen, and what a "Natural Born Citizen" is.

Our courts ... especially the SCOTUS have betrayed us by refusing to handle the question, so anyone's opinion is as good as anyone else's. E.G., I mean ...gasp...I could be wrong ... so could you!

This question is beyond cracker-barrel lawyers and philosophers. We pay people to handle it professionally. Be 'bout time they did.

Our Republic needs to establish what is a citizen, who is a citizen, and what a "Natural Born Citizen" is.

Our country has forgotten what "natural born citizen" means because it has forgotten what "citizen" means.

That gold medalist at the Olympics who was waving both U.S. and Mexican victory flags, this man who was the child of illegal immigrants who came to this country, has no idea what it means to be an American citizen. His parents were illegals and didn't care about America or American citizenship, so he (the anchor baby) never learned it either.

Yeah, I really do care about some taco-fartin anus waving a Mexican flag while on the American Team. In fact, makes me ill.

However, what I really do care more about is whether or not this guy is supposed to be a citizen ... and how he is supposed to have gotten to be one. That unpatriotic SOB is a symptom, not the disease.

You need not wonder very long. Unfortunately, for us constitutional conservatives, the NBC factor probably never entered the minds of the RINO Romney people. Rather, we lucked out.

Rubio and Jindal are good guys and I wish them successful political careers, but that doesn't make them constitutionally eligible to be VPOTUS or POTUS.

I was explaining this point to my Mom, and she had never heard of it. She thought that just being born in the USA made one eligible for the Presidency. I painstakingly explained it to her that even if Obama had been born in HI(which I doubt) he would STILL not be a NBC, because his alleged father was a British Subject (Kenya didn’t exist as a country at the time...it was a British Colony). This is a fact that even many “birthers” ignore.

Meanwhile, if we are going to be honest about it, Neither Rubio nor Jindal meet that criteria either.
