Racist Conservatives Pick Ted Cruz and Ben Carson in Presidential Straw Poll

Conservatives prove once again that they’re racists. Look what they just did, positive proof that Republicans and conservatives are at heart racially motivated in their political decisions.

No doubt the Democrats will pull the ubiquitous race card again by making up some story about why the poll results turned out the way they did:

“Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has won another straw poll, boosting his national profile and elevating his name among potential 2016 presidential contenders.

*****

“Cruz finished in first place in the annual conference's presidential straw poll at 30.33%. Dr. Ben Carson, a Fox News commentator and conservative activist, finished in second with 29.38% while Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, was third with 10.43%.”

A Black and Hispanic pulled in 60 percent of vote among attendees at the Republican Leadership Conference.

The racism of conservatives runs deep. That’s why they elected Gov. Bobby Jindal in Louisiana, Gov. Nikki Haley in South Carolina, and the Junior Senator Tim Scott also from South Carolina.

No doubt the Democrats will say that Cruz and Carson are GOP puppets, racial window dressing just to appeal to minority voters in order to win elections. Liberals don’t care much for racial equality. What they really want is political singularity that sees the State as a benefactor, the creation of a new form of slavery where everybody is equal -- equally poor.

How do you think this GOP presidential ticket would do in November 2016? Dr. Carson doesn’t have any political experience. In most of the articles What I’ve read about President Obama when he was running for president in 2008 is that many political pundits spent more time on his “stirring keynote address at a Democratic National Convention” and his “eloquence and hopeful approach to politics” more than his political experience.

As we now know, Obama’s “eloquence” has does wonders for our struggling economy. His policies have been some of the most destructive our nation has ever experienced.

Anyway, who needs experience? Those with experience get us into wars, ruin education, and wreck the economy, and devalue our freedoms.

The vast majority of conservatives don’t care a thing about race or national origin. It’s policies that we care about.

“Cruz's address was among the most popular. He was interrupted several times by cheers and standing ovations — especially when he told the crowd he was ‘convinced’ the Republican Party would retake control of Congress in the midterm elections this fall.

“Cruz won the Values Voter summit's presidential straw poll last fall, and came in second to Sen. Paul in this year's straw poll at the big Conservative Political Action Conference.

“The potential 2016 presidential candidate said that across the country, people tell him that they are scared – of losing their freedom, losing their constitutional rights, and bankrupting their children and grandchildren.”

It’s not about skin color, race, or national origin; it’s about policies.

In addition to ridding Congress of political destroyers from the Democrat Party, it’s also important to do a bit of GOP housecleaning:

“‘The problem with the Republican Party is that we have people in the party who don't believe in the very foundational principles of our party,’ said [Rick] Santorum, going on to criticize the party's ‘moderate’ funders, an ‘expert political class’ from ‘dark-blue communities’ in major cities.”

The people Santorum is talking about are all white![1] Once again, it’s policy, not race.

Policy — NOT race!


Notes:
  1. One of the reasons Santorum lost his Senate seat in 2008 in Pennsylvania is because he turned moderate and supported Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey in the 2004 election. []

  • NonyaBidnezz

    Ted Cruz is ineligible to be President. Ben Carson has no relevant experience.

    • RockyMtn1776

      Since when did THAT matter ? Look what we have in office now !

    • MrD

      You reveal much about yourself with your comments:BRO!

    • MrsCleaver

      Yes he is eligible. It's pure nonsense to assert otherwise. Your motives are truly questionable.

      • LeSellers

        He is not a "natural born citizen" as the Founders understood the term — thus ineligible.

        Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • MrsCleaver

          Blah blah blah. I'm going with eligible. Oh, to answer your question about jobs, the answer is absolutely not.

        • LeSellers

          On what do you base "going with eligible"?

          George Washington and Alexander Hamilton (et al.) knew what a natural born citizen was and they wrote the Document. Cruz and Rubio and others in the headlines are ineligible to the office because their births were not on USmerican soil or their parents were not citizens at the time.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • acronymous

          Suppose John Adams had brought his wife with him to France where he was ambassador, and Quincy had been born in France. Wouldn't he still have been a natural born US citizen?

          Citizenry at birth comes from ANY ONE of these: your parents were citizens, OR, you were born here while subject to the laws of this country. (Which excludes, say, the children of foreigners posted here as diplomats, because diplomats enjoy immunity from our laws.)

        • LeSellers

          Yes. Vatell makes an allowance for a child born to two citizen parents who are in the service of their country at the time of the birth.

          The citizenship of the parents is the primary consideration, to be sure, but being born on the soil of the country is also a requirement, except in rare cases when in the service of the country. Working in an oil field does not qualify.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          If we get that far, Rafael "Ted" Cruz can argue that point in court. But he will never get that far anyway.

      • NonyaBidnezz

        He is a Canadian Immigrant, son of a Cuban refugee.

    • Renellin

      I'm beginning to wonder just what experience is necessary to be President of the United States. I think it is more about the people you surround yourself with. I also think someone who has been particularly successful in their careers with solid decision making behind them may be the right path to take. I like somebody with executive experience, but I am willing to take a doctor of medicine. Ted Cruz will be an interesting discussion.

      • Antogeny

        I agree - the POTUS does NOT have to know EVERYTHING. No one can know everything! But, he has to be of above-average intellect, and confident enough to draw the brightest and best minds from all fields of endeavor (JLo doesn't count) and listen to them. Then, he needs to make a considered, intelligent decision. That's what leading is all about. DumBO is too intimidated by intelligent people to even ASK them. He has drawn his czars, cabinet members, and VP from the bottom of the barrel. He is an insecure narcissist who thinks that if he surrounds himself with fools, he'll look good in comparison. Of course, now, he and his entire staff have exposed all of their collective ignorance to the world!

    • Carolyn Ferrante

      All the better to draft them for the nominations! Ah, they're both as pure and driven as the falling snow. We should be so lucky to have Dr. Ben Carson as our Commander-in-Chief, and Ted Cruz is just as eligible as Kenya-born Obama.

    • LeSellers

      I agree with the first statement, but the second is questionable.

      "Experience" is hardly the most important criterion for being president. George Washington didn't have it, Lincoln didn't have it. John Quincy Adams was the most groomed man to hold the office, but was hardly a major success.

      I'm more concerned about a dedication to the Constitution, the ability to recognize who will be a good secretary of Defense or of Education (no one). I want someone who can make decisions, who has the intelligence to understand where there's a problem.

      I want someone who knows himself, and who knows his own weaknesses. O'bama, fills neither requirement. Both of those in the article do.

      Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

      • Ed Leon

        Amen, spot on! Like "Proudamerican" said. Even Mr. Ed would be an improvement to both the President and VP that we have now!

      • NonyaBidnezz

        I want someone who knows how to budget, how to negotiate, how to win people over. Someone who is a leader. Someone who knows about world politics and governments. Someone who actually defends the constitution no matter what his personal feeling about it are. Someone who will get things done, even if Congress cannot.

        You are right about the Cabinet. Whatever candidate wins - they bring in their own people, and we don't really know who they are until AFTER the election is over. We should vote for them as a team.

    • Jayne Nielsen

      Sounds awfully familiar. Does the name Barack Hussein Obama ring your bell?! Bill O'Reilly so eloquently stated "the stupid will vote for anyone who promises free things" (I'm kind of paraphrasing of course) And what did Obama promise....FREE EVERYTHING. Free healthcare. Free tuition for illegal aliens. Endless welfare, food stamps, and unemployment.

      This "feckless idiot" has condoned and encouraged the lazy to permanently suck from the government teat, has surrounded himself with the most corrupt Cabinet members (Holder), and has appointed the worst imbeciles (Sibelius and Lerner) to oversee government agencies but I'm sure you, NonyaBidnezz, would consider all this "relevant experience"!

      • NonyaBidnezz

        Perhaps a single job in a relevant field. This is an important position. We can't just hand it out to any joker who agrees with you on one or two controversial issues.

        • Jayne Nielsen

          Problem with your "reasoning" is, Obama had NO experience relevant or not. As for "any joker who agrees with [me] on one or two controversial issues", I strongly agree with Ted Cruz and Dr. Carson on these issues:

          1) Continued anemic economy

          2) Billions of dollars wasted on Cash for Clunkers and Solyndra among other pathetic Green Energy decisions

          3) 0.1% GDP growth this quarter

          4) FIVE scandals plaguing this Administration one which FOUR Americans were murdered

          5) The negotiation/exchange of five high level Taliban operatives/leaders

          I'm sure I missed many others but here are the ONE OR TWO controversial issues that have occurred under YOUR Messiah's watch. Pretty moronic for someone with "relevant" experience.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          Obama was a United States Senator for several terms and also was the chairman for the Illinois state healh and human resources committee.

        • tompro97


          Total lies - both of them!!! Boy, you need to do some serious research before you make such invalid comments in public. You're embarrassing!!!

        • NonyaBidnezz

          Don't you remember? Obama was basically unopposed when he ran for Senate because his opponent Jack Ryan (R) dropped out after a sex scandal involving his wife Jeri Ryan. (Seven of Nine on Star Trek Voyager) During the divorce it came out that Jack wanted her to perform sexual acts in public with him in sex clubs in New York, New Orleans, and Paris. Ryan withdrew from the race and was replaced with Alan Keys who was soundly defeated by Obama.

          That is a story I don't forget. :) If you don't know who Jeri Ryan is - ask google.

    • Billy Bob Johnson

      I also think that Dr. Ben's rantings on homosexuals also disqualifies him for the White House. That's why he was kicked out of Johns Hopkins.

      • NonyaBidnezz

        I only know his name because he said the Affordable Care Act was worse than Slavery.

        • Billy Bob Johnson

          Well look it up for the whole story.

        • NonyaBidnezz

    • Steve Tanton

      Both statements are false.

      • NonyaBidnezz

        I see you are a fan of Castro. No wonder you like Cruz.

    • acronymous

      Cruz was born in Canada but it seems his parents were US citizens. Just because they were working a stint in Canada doesn't disqualify him from natural-born citizen because the children of citizens are citizens at birth, wherever they're born. Even if it's on a plane over the Pacific.

      • LeSellers

        Rafael Cruz was not an USmerican citizen until 2005.

        Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

      • LeSellers

        Only those born overseas to citizens in the service of their country can claim natural born status. Those who are born while their parents, no matter their citizenship status, are privately travelling cannot claim that state.

    The black Muslim messiah has a forged birth certificate and had less experience than Ben Carson. I am a bit confused how can someone be racist if they support Ben Carson?? But then again we all know that RACISM Card is just a bunch of BS!~!

  • shavager

    First place America--at a time of such HUGE DEBT and stagnant economy we DON'T need a political novice like Ben Carson--he has ZERO management experience, ZERO military experience, ZERO political savvy or experience, ZERO experience in managing an economy or business. He's done nothing but give speeches--the last time this country elected someone with such ZERO experience was Barack Obama--that experience didn't wake you up? For all his great ideas or comments, Carson would make a great HHS Secretary in the next administration, electing him president at this time could be a huge mistake. WE NEED EXPERIENCE, preferably candidates like conservative governors who've proven they can handle business, economies, budgets, payrolls on a large basis. NEW faces like Scott Walker, Nikki Haley, Mary Fallin, Susana Martinez, Mitch Daniels--these are PROVEN candidates with PROVEN results.

    • Renellin

      I think that sounds like a good idea. I'm still with Bobby Jindal as well.

      • LeSellers

        Like Cruz, Jindal is ineligible: neither is a natural born citizen as the Framers understood the term.

        Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • jeff

          Obama is not a natural born citizen. His father was never a citizen of the US.

        • LeSellers

          I agree completely.

          Even if his father was Frank Marshall Davis (as I believe is more than merely possible, given his mother's sluttish ways), when he was adopted by Sotero and failed to post a formal relinquishment of Indonesian citizenship, he lost any natural born status he may ever have had.

          But if the official lie is accepted, then his father, being a British subject, made him ineligible.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Renellin

          Well said. If, as I have read, that only an Indonesian citizen could go to school, and they don't allow for dual citizens, he has to have given up any citizenship he may have had. I also think we have a right to know whether or not he applied as a foreign student to college.

        • Steve Tanton

          I do not believe that to be true. And interesting, the term "natural born" is not defined in the Constitution as having two American parents. The very fact that Obama is president, proves that one is enough.

        • LeSellers

          The Founders knew what they meant, and it was the "Law of Nations" (after the title of a book on the subject: La loi des gens).

          O'bama does not qualify, nor do Cruz and Rubio.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • jeff

          My understanding is that a natural born citizen is the offspring of two citizens of the US although they did not have to be born here; but, they had to become citizens. I believe this has always been the accepted definition of a natural born citizen.

        • LeSellers

          The Founders used Vattel's La loi des gens as the basis for defining the term "natural born citizen".

          Vattel says that a natural born citizen is one born to two citizen parents (or at least a citizen father) on the soil of the country. (This includes a child born on foreign soil when the parents are in the service of the country, however.)

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Ed Leon

          Cruz is as eligible as Barack Obama, if one violates the Constitution, then the other can too. At least Cruz came to America being a child, and has never left America to live elsewhere, and believe in the foundational principles of America and the Constitution. So if Obama is the "President" now, so sure as hell Cruz can be too!!

        • LeSellers

          Two wrong do not make a right.

          I'm unwilling to shred to Constitution to accommodate a man, even a good man, to become president.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Ed Leon

          I am not saying if he doesn't qualify constitutionally that he should be elected President, I am alluding to the fact that it did not stop American voters to elect the #1 usurper on the throne right now. I think of the violations to our Constitution perpetrated by Obummer, that is the least of them. To re-institute respect for the Constitution in America will be a task of undoing what liberals have done for over 40 years, a gigantic task!! It begins with the education of the young of why the Constitution is there to begin with.

        • Steve Tanton

          What pray tell is "natural born"? Ted Cruz IS natural born in my view, having been born of an American mother and an immigrant (then naturalized) American father.

        • LeSellers

          He was born in Canada: strike one.

          His father was not an USmerican citizen: strike two.

          He was a dual national: strike three.

          There is really only one strike needed , but he is not qualified on all three points.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

      • shavager

        IF Bobby Jindal got the nomination I'd vote for him, but I'm not convinced he's Constitutionally eligible as a candidate based on "natural BORN" requirement for president?VP position, which millions of conservatives believe means born to TWO American citizens--neither Jindal, Ted Cruz, nor Barack Obama meet these qualifications and two WRONGS wouldn't make it right by electing a Republican that arguably would be just as ineligible as Obama. BUT, like I said I'd vote for him or Cruz as the candidate--at least they have more experience in their backgrounds than Carson does. And I have NO ill will towards Ben Carson--IF he was nominated to a political post, won an election for another office and got some experience, then it might be a different story. Congress continues to LIE and distort the immense problem $17+ TRILLION in national DEBT and another $100 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities--there's NOT enough money in the whole world to pay off that amount--most economists are saying it's NOT a matter of IF the U.S. dollar will be replaced as the world's currency but WHEN. WHEN it happens--the Federal Reserve will NOT be able to print any more dollars to run government or pay our debt--there will be A DISASTER of economic proportions like the Great Depression WHEN that happens. That's why electing a conservative president so important, we need a conservative Congress to begin implementing policies that will roll back DEBT, DEFICITS and begin balancing budgets before it collapses.

        • LeSellers

          The only quibble I have about your post is that Carson needs political experience to be a good president.

          Frankly, I;d rather have an inexperienced man at the helm than some of the fools we have had. There's no way they could muck things up worse than O'bama has, and, based on their ideology, they'd do a whole lot better.,

          The phrase "natural born citizen" is all about the parents.

          In the XVIII, it meant a child born on the soil of the country of (at least) a citizen father, and more explicitly of two citizen parents.

Cruz's mother was an American but he was BORN in Canada to a CUBAN father. There IS A DIFFERENCE.

Our Founders would puke over all of these long term/lifetime do nothing political hacks screwing up our country. If they had foreseen congress members sitting for decades, they most assuredly would have written term limits into the Constitution. Living in the D.C.

So he can operate on a brain--don't make his brain any better for running this country than college graduates IF he's not up to the job. The FOUNDING Fathers never expected CAREER politicians--they envisioned CITIZEN legislators meeting at nation's capital for a SHORT time every year to address the country's issues and security. POLITICIANS have turned it into BIG BUSINESS--that's why so many leave MILLIONAIRES, from the payoffs and BRIBES. WE won't get term limits through Congress because it AFFECTS their pockets and income--that's WHY 24 states have passed legislation calling for a Constitutional Convention, 3 states have passed it through ONE side of their state legislatures needing the final vote before signing on, 34 are need to call a Convention so that would leave 7 MORE needed. Once a Constitutional Convention has the states required to convene--they will have POWER to address Balance Budget Amendment that will FORCE Congress to recognize and abide by, the can also pass TERM LIMITS--and Congress has NO AUTHORITY OVER IT SINCE IT WOULD BECOME AN AMENDMENT TO CONSTITUTION! We would see an exodus of professional politicians and an opportunity for new blood, new faces that aren't bought and owned by the lobbyists, special interests, banks, corporations, etc...

    • Steve Tanton

      Some of us would disagree. As the former head of neurosurgery, Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, he is a highly skilled scientist/technician with letters. He as also written several books besides having given many very well-delivered speeches, thus is way above average in language and communication skills. As for "ZERO" political savvy or experience, au contraire Pierre. He is obviously well-educated, has incredible savvy and as for experience, whatever his age, he has that many years experience as a citizen, which is what our democratic-republic was designed for in terms of office-holders, not POLITICAL experience. As head of surgery, he would have had management experience; as for military experience, I don't know but I do know that is not everything. I don't have any either, but I would be way better than the "Great Pretender". While you make points, and your points have some merit, they are not concrete, for I have a lifetime of watching "experienced" people take our country nearly to hell.

      • shavager

        But that is NOT management at a level at that of state or federal government level. There are millions of smart people in this country--just putting somebody with as little experience as he has is or most of them a RECIPE for disaster as the current sissy muslim is. Obama has ZERO credibility with our Allies, and even less with our enemies--they are laughing at us all over the world for this absent president--he had NO idea of problems in Libya--he missed 60%+ of NATIONAL SECURITY BRIEFINGS. YOU can support someone with very little experience in anything but his experience in medicine, I prefer someone who's had experience in running a large scale operation, budgets, payroll, etc...that's why until recent election of Obama, America has sided with governors for that experience. For all his big spending--George W. Bush was NOT a conservative in economic or fiscal policies, neither was Bill Clinton.

    Obama is and was an imbecile fraud - with a marginal IQ. What is there positive to focus on.

      There's nothing wrong with his IQ. He's president and you're not. He's very good at coming up with the right things to say to get votes. Doing that takes brains.

      Doing anything else takes qualities other than plain old smarts. He hasn't done at all well at the duties of his office. He seems to have no nose for making good appointments, for instance. They don't even work out to his own political advantage.

      But people sense is highly lacking in many high-IQ types.
      That he is lacking in that regard does not prove that he's stupid. It only explains why he's not able to carry out even that part of his duties that he wants to carry out, such as pick a cabinet member who can roll out a healthcare.gov website or administer the VA well enough to not draw fire from fellow democrats and cause a stink.

      • OldRockerguy

        You are assuming that Obama wants to be a good president and that he is simply inept. Personally, I don't believe that Obama wants to be a "good" president. Obama's mission is the destruction of this country both economically and militarily. His cabinet appointees are very carefully chosen. They are communists, socialists, muslims, etc. that all share his common goal of American destruction. His decisions and executive orders are all designed to weaken us - not to strengthen us. Obama's decisions and appointees couldn't have been more perfect to fulfill his destructive goals.

      • theshadow

        He has done nothing to prove (in his entire life) that he has an IQ. He is a media created sickening libtard. The fact he's never had a job, to no records of anything he has ever done is not a factor of how clever he is - but how libtards abuse the entire system - from beginning to end.

    • OldRockerguy

      Obama is not the one with the low IQ. He was smart enough to convince the majority of low IQ voters to support him twice for the presidency even though he is unable to prove American citizenship - natural born or naturalized. So what is the solution? The low IQ voters will counter by supporting another constitutionally ineligible candidate to replace him thus setting a precedent by BOTH political parties that constitutional eligibility requirements no longer matter. We will then put ourselves in a position where "anything goes" regarding a presidential candidate's eligibility. Any foreigner, no matter what his birthplace or to what country he owes his allegiance will be able to present a valid legal argument to run for president. So who has the low IQ?

      • theshadow

        I didn't debate the American populace isn't clueless etc. - easily manipulated by the sickening media. I understand how the lowest common denominators vote for him - handouts. It's the others that have a screw loose. Maybe I am wrong indeed - he's basically inundating this country with all of Mexico etc. with breeding rates that are astronomical. As Jay leno said - the proper PC term is Undocumented Democrats.

    When speaking at a liberal, I always start the conversation with the following statement; "I am insensitive, a racist, a Islamaphobe, a homophobe, and any other kind of phobe you might make up. With this out of the way, can we now try to discuss the facts and the miss information that you have?"

  • DrSique

    Knowing that I despise Barack Hussein Obama because of the bright crimson red of his politics, instead of the half black ethnicity of his parentage, is such a relief. For a while, I thought that all of the race baiting leftists had me pegged as a bigot. But, liberals will never cease viewing our world through race colored glasses as it serves their evil purpose far too well. They have no choice but to attack the messenger because the message is unassailable. How do they argue with individual rights, liberty and personal responsibility. I mean, other than Hillary's, "It takes a village" BS and "At this point, what difference does it make?"

  • David

    In the FINAL analysis all people are Racists, it is natural to discriminate FOR people that look like you! The right thing to do is find ANOTHER reason to vote for (or against) somebody that has nothing to do with race- like you disagree with the persons monetary theory (or his opponent has the knowledge needed for the position) or his lack of accomplishments or his killing people by either neglect or re-definition of the end product (e.g. abortion).

    • Red_Ruffansore

      Yes, ideas. Tough though when they made the entire process into a beauty pageant. Cruz is photogenic, well spoken and so very well educated and literate that I don't see any democratic opponent lasting longer than a few seconds against him.

      Cruz was born in Canada of US citizen parents

      • LeSellers

        Which Canadian birth makes him ineligible for the office of president.

        His father was not an USmerican citizen at the time of his birth, either. That would be two strikes against his eligibility. The father didn't obtain USmerican citizenship until 2005.

        • LeSellers

          There's a simple answer to this question: O'bama need only release his application for Occidental and Columbia, and the original birth certificate (I don't care, personally, where he was born, but I'd like to see who his mother actually listed as his father).

          But he's unwilling to do that. As he said, "The only people who don't want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide."

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          He knows that even if he released his college transcript - It would convince no one of anything. That is exactly what happened with the birth certificate(s).
          There is plenty of money to be made propagating this conspiracy to conspiracy theorists. There are books to sell, websites to sell ads on, markets to invest in.
          Haters gonna hate. Make a buck off of 'em.

        • LeSellers

          Had those birth "certificates" been anything but obvious forgeries, they would have convinced many, me included.

          The number of glaring errors (from pencil marks to the .pdf layers to the misaligned type and mismatched type faces) is more than a score.

          The same thing is true of the so-called SS Registration card: huge, blatant discrepancies.

          His antiSocial insecurity number, his college applications (no one cares about his substandard work at Occidental — although how such a mediocre student from a third-tier college got into Columbia is an interesting poser), his claim to be a "constitutional law professor" (whom no one liked: not the students, not the other teachers) when he was merely a guest lecturer, there are simply too many lies, too much ambiguity, too few consistencies in his life story for it to be believable.

          His "parents" never married (although his mother got a divorce). She was an under-age porn star for Frank Marshall Davis's magazine. Whoever her son's father was, he was a rapist, and Barack, Jr., is a ba$tard. (This is true even if BHO, Sr,. did "marry" Stanley Ann, since he was already married in Kenya, and bigamy makes the second ceremony null and void ab initio.)

          He was going to write a book. He never got around to it, but in the announcement, he wrote that he was the son of a Kenyan shepherd. Obama (no apostrophe) was never a shepherd. Obama never lived with the "family", even though the late governor of Hawai`i claims to have visited them" in Honolulu. His mother abandoned him and went home to Seattle to attend college within weeks of his unattested birth. Her request was that "Frank" (Marshall Davis) be young O'bama's mentor. Davis was an even more devout Communist than Stanley's own parents.

          Obama wrote home to his friends and asked them to take care of his wife while he was off in USmerica womanizing. He did not mean Stanley Ann. She never figured in his life (although probably in his bed — a different matter altogether), and neither did his "son".

          B Hussein O'bama, famously of Irish parentage (hence the apostrophe: he celebrated his Irishness by visiting Monegall, the ancestral homeland), is not eligible to the office of president by the fact of his adoption by Lolo Sotoro, and his subsequent Indonesian citizenship (required to attend school in the island nation, the largest Muslim country in the world). There is no record of Junior's having renounced his Indonesian citizenship, although Ted Cruz renounced his Canadian status. There is sufficient reason (hinted at above) that O'bama used his foreign citizenship to secure his seat at Occidental and the one at Columbia.

          BTW, one of his classmates, and at least one (far left) professor do not recall ever seeing him in class at Columbia. No one is saying that he wasn't enrolled, just that any grades he got were received, not earned.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          I'm positive you would find errors with whatever school records he would release too.
          Why bother?

        • LeSellers

          One can find errors only if those errors exist.

          The "birth certificates" are filled with them, so they were available to be found.

          If his school records were made available, and if there were no errors, what is the problem? Where would these assumed errors be?

        • NonyaBidnezz

        • LeSellers

          You do know that ad hominem is a fallacy, right?

          Either there are errors (and there are in the "birth certificates"), or there are not.

          Present the evidence and we'll see what is there.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          There are not. They were released and approved by multiple members of both parties. The state election commission in all 50 states approved and confirmed his eligibility. Twice. Not to mention the overwhelming number of lawsuits in the last six years that have failed to prove any "errors".

        • LeSellers

          You'll have to show where anyone outside the president's circle of friends had anything to do with releasing them.

          There are errors. I have seen them, and I'm not even an expert in Adobe Acrobat and .pdf files (although I work with them everyday).

          There is no way that one form was placed into two separate typewriters to produce the output. Yet there is abundant evidence that this was what must have happened unless the whole document was forged in PhotoShop. There are those pesky "?" marks and other penciled entries, as well as the layers. Birth certificates, like other official documents, must not be altered except by court order. These were.

          Oh, there were dozens of anomalies in the "long form" birth certificate that I could spot. There were equally odd anomalies on his Selective Service registration, too, and that's only a postcard sized document.

          I can produce an official birth certificate in a few minutes, but it took O'bama years to do so. I can get a copy of my university application in a couple of hours (it's further away), he has never disclosed one. In fact, he has spent more than a million dollars keeping those simple documents out of the public eye. Why?

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • NonyaBidnezz

          The governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, a Republican who at the time was stumping for John McCain, said it was on the up-and-up.

          Obama did not take years to release his birth certificate. It was released 5 months before the first election.

        • NonyaBidnezz

          "You know, during the campaign of 2008, I was actually in the mainland campaigning for Sen. McCain. This issue kept coming up so much in the campaign, and again I think it's one of those issues that is simply a distraction from the more critical issues that are facing the country. And so I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go personally view the birth certificate in the birth records of the Department of Health, and we issued a news release at that time saying that the president was, in fact, born at Kapi'olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that's just a fact. And yet people continue to call up and e-mail and want to make it an issue. And I think it's, again, a horrible distraction for the country by those people who continue this. ... It's been established. He was born here." - Linda Lingle (R)

        • LeSellers

          Lingle didn't actually see the birth certificate: she took it from the Dr in charge of the statistics department (her "health director"). Then she took to odd step of sealing the record so no one could check it out independently. Just another unanswered question.

          Secondly, and this is just as important as where he was born (I accept it was in Hawai`i), the rest of his citizenship paper trail is even more questionable than his birthplace. And, in particular, I question his Indonesian citizenship and his failure to renounce it as soon as he turned 18. I also question whether he got into Columbia based on a valid claim that he was a foreign exchange student. One cannot be both a foreign student and a natural born citizen.

          McCain refused, as did Romney, to attack O'bama's sketchy citizenship. 'Course, it was Mrs. Clinton who first raised the issue, the original "birther".

          When Romney only released one year of tax returns, he was asked the same thing. If you have nothing to hide, release 3 years, or 10 years. Nope.

          I stand corrected, he released one year of tax returns, and an estimated return that was not finalized. Every other candidate in the last 30 years have released at least 5 years. But it is not a requirement - Mitt let us know he would only release what is "required". He has that right.

        • LeSellers

          The issue is not citizenship, per se, it's natural born citizenship.

          Cruz's father was Cuban at the time of the son's birth, he was not born on USmerican soil, and his parents were not in the service of the country he would claim that state from. Ergo, he is not eligible for the office of president.

    The intolerant, bigoted, racist Democrats and Liberals call all non-racist conservatives what they themselves are, despite the fact that the GOP has been the party of greater diversity, that the GOP has empowered Hispanics and Blacks to rise up to great positions of leadership where they have positive influence in lifting their people up and out of poverty and lesser lifestyles.

    The only Hispanics and Blacks that ever rise up in the Democratic party are the ones who espouse the party agenda to keep their fellow Hispanics and Blacks under the thumb of power, controlled and allowed to be only what the Democrats and Liberals allow them to be.

    As was the case in the civil war, with the Democrats there is the freedom to live on plantations and serve masters and be patted on the back; with the GOP (as screwed up as it is right now) there is the freedom to live on your own and run with your own dreams and aspirations, and even call for reform of the old GOP, just like Sen Cruz and Dr Carson do.

    The party does not tell them what to do, Cruz and Carson tell the party what to do and stick to it.

    A HUGE Question. Does not Article II of the Constitution state that "No Person except a naturla born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President"?
    So given Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada how can he be President?
    Just asking, given we already have someone of question squatting in the oval office who's birth place is questionable at best.
    Perhaps what is good for the goose is good for the gander for most folks, but I choose to follow what our Constitution actually says, not what some choose to think it says. So I'm JUST ASKING!!!

        The 14th Amendment has no bearing on the requirements of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4...the president (and by extension the VP) MUST be a "Natural Born Citizen"....(he must be born in the United States, and BOTH parents must be citizens....since Cruz was born in Canada, and his father was Cuban at the time....he's no more eligible that osama!)

        • iitywybad

          You really need a reality check. Just what the hell do you think is the purpose of a Constitutional Amendment?? You're stuck on stupid- eligibility is governed by the amendment.

        • Phil Bronner

          It's one thing to be ignorant....it's quite another when YOU're Willfully ignorant.....Eligibility is governed by what the Supreme Court OPINES the amendment says....(A power NOT given to SCOTUS by Article III of the Constitution, but one they seized when ruling on Marbury v. Madison under Jay.) Not only that...but "Natural Born Citizen" as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 4...was NOT addressed in the 14th Amendment.
          The 14th was to apply citizenship to slaves which had been considered "property" up to that time, and thus were "stateless"...and were here LEGALLY!

Cruz is eligible. Article I, Section 3, Clause 3 (in part) "No person shall be a Senator...been nine years a Citizen of the United States..." Cruz is eligible. Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 (in part) "No person except a natural born Citizen...shall be eligible to the office of President.." Cruz is NOT eligible.

          It's not a matter of a closed mind...it IS a matter of the Constitution, common sense, and a mind open enough to read the Constitution, do the research and realize what the original intent of the Founders was...and WHY they saw fit to REQUIRE someone other than a mere "citizen" to hold the highest office in the land...and I'm thinking, looking at the Hitlerian "leader" we are stuck with and the absolute abortion of his administration, anyone with a smidgen of common sense would understand the concept of NBC....
          You might start with (in case you do not wish to REMAIN willfully ignorant):
          Emerich de Vattel: Law of Nations, Book 1, Chapter 19
          William Blackstone: Commentaries of the Laws of England, Book 1, Chapter 10.
          (Hint: Our entire legal system, including those words and phrases used in the Constitution are based on the Common Law as detailed in the two above references.)
          SCOTUS DECISIONS:
          The Venus, 12 US 8 CRANCH 253 253
          Shanks v. Dupont, 28 US 3, PET 242 242
          Minor v. Happersett, 88 US 162
          US v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 US 649
          Although SCOTUS has never rendered an opinion on a case of NBC, those listed above reference and define NBC as opposed to other forms of "citizenship"...
          SCOTUS has NEVER applied the term "Natural Born Citizen" to ANY other category than "Those born in a country of parents who are citizens thereof."

          You might also want to google: "The Logical Analysis of a Natural Born Citizen". Clearly, obama, cruz, jindal, and rubio do not pass the smell (or the Constitutional) test!

          Even liberal law professors like Alan Dershowitz disagree with you. You're just bullheaded that you have to be right. The ONLY reason for an amendment to the Constitution is to CHANGE the Constitution, and anyone with a modicum of intelligence would understand and admit that, but obviously you won't, so I'm not responding anymore because I don't want to look like an idiot also. Time will tell who is right, so have a nice day. Good Day!

I guess my old professor was right when he said, "you can't argue stupid people smart".....have a dos equis and stay ignorant, my friend...

    • Deborah G

      I wish I had the answer to that. By Democrat standards anyone they want runs. By legal standards I believe we need to have a very careful adherance to the letter of the law on this. I love Cruz, he is great an AMerican but like Rubio IF there is a question they'll hammer him. Not that we can hide the prioof like they did and skate

          The trouble with any compromise with any lib are dem is that they dont keep there word after you do give them what they want. This has even happen on amnesty before, and on Bush 1 tax cuts. So you cant compromise with them . If so you lose

    • Phil Bronner

      Ted Cruz is not eligible for the office of president, and by extension, vice president....He's no more a "Natural Born Citizen" than osama...and we see what happens when any Tom, Dick, or Barrack is allow to violate the Constitutional requirements for an office!

    • OldRockerguy

      The root cause for most all of the problems we are facing today is because we have allowed our politicians to slowly but surely undermine our constitution. Currently we are suffering under an illegal, ineligible president that cannot prove American citizenship - neither natural born or naturalized. I am a big fan of Ted Cruz. He has done a great job and I would hope that the people of Texas continue to have him as their senator for many years to come. However, even Ted Cruz is willing to thumb his nose at the constitution when it comes to advancing his own political career. Should we elect Ted Cruz as president we will then set a precedent by BOTH major political parties that natural born American citizenship is no longer a requirement to hold the office of president or vice-president. We are opening the door to allowing anyone to hold the office of president regardless of where they were born or to what country their allegiance may be dedicated. How has that been working for us lately? That is a very dangerous legal precedent to set. The only thing that is allowing us to keep what few freedoms we have left is our 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms. Once that right disappears enslavement will soon follow. The one thing that we cannot have is a president that waffles on 2nd Amendment rights. Initially Ben Carson indicated that gun controls would be okay in heavily populated urban areas (where we need self-protection the most). He also indicated that 2nd Amendment rights were negotiable. Recently he now indicates that he supports 2nd Amendment rights (probably because his real views were hurting him). Whoever we nominate must have a solid history of unwavering support of the 2nd Amendment. We are playing with fire if we nominate someone with wishy-washy views on the 2nd Amendment. Should Ben Carson become president we will again be labeled as racists if we criticize him for some view or action of his that we as conservatives feel is unconstitutional. Aren't we getting a little tired of that? The next presidential election will perhaps be the most important in the history of our country. If we vote with our emotions instead of our heads we will surely find ourselves in deep trouble in the future.

  • anniedawn

    In Minor V. Happersett (case on womens voting rights) Supreme Court Justice Morrison R. Waite stated "Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. This is apparent from the Constitution itself, for it provides that 'no person except a natural-born citizen or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adopton of the Constitution shall be eligible to the office of President,' and that Congress shall have power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.' Thus new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.
    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 nomencalture of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a COUNTRY of PARENTS who were 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 refrence to the citizenship of their parents. As to this class there have been doubls, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necesssary to solve these doubts. It is suffcient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen PARENTS within the JURISDICTON are themselves citizens." Jurisdiction is the United States of America. Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father who came here in 1957 but only became an American in 2005. This applies to lthe current president also.

    I keep hoping that enough true Americans wake up to the progressive propaganda and get out and vote for a more conservative, free America and help remove these socialist radicals in Congress and the Whitehouse. We are never going to get them to abort their attempt to create a communist America as the Democrat political party has been taken over by the Communist Party of America disguised as the progressives in our country. I doubt if many long term Democrats realize what has happened to their party over the last 20 years. The continual demonizing of conservative Christian values by the progressives and their hard push to expand government at the cost of our freedom should be an eye opener to everyone.

A person totally indoctrinated from his youth by Marxist parents, grandparents and radical mentors to hate our Constitution our laws, or economic system and our culture. A man bent on dividing us as a nation on every demographic from gender, race, religion, law and morality. A man who has no background of excellence and so ashamed of his lack of accomplishments he has spent millions to keep his records secret. A man who can spew effluent from his lips as he reads from a teleprompter and walk away without even a memory of what he said. A man protected by a fawning leg tingling media that worships his footfalls and yet when he is on rare occasions reluctantly called to give an account for his actions or in-actions claims either ignorance or deflects his responsibilities while the willing media graciously accepts his response without question. Nobody could Limbo under the bar set for the presidency today.

    Tim Scott is the junior Senator from South Carolina, not NC. He previously served in Congress. During his tenure in the House, the South Carolina delegation had the highest proportionate black representation in the Congress. Scott is a level-headed, conservative Republican. The media and social elites may continue to falsely imply that Southerners are racists, but in privacy of the election booth this is proven a lie by the election of both Scott and Governor Haley.

There are good and bad of every race and from what I have seen of Northerners or Southerners (I fit in the latter group) they are all about equal in their feelings towards other races.

With a little cohesiveness within the GOP, Romney would most likely be running for a second term now.

    Cruz, Carson or Paul would all be great presidents. Their most dangerous opponent is the lying brain-washing corporate press which will crucify any conservative which might challenge their liberal progressive candidate and agenda. Their second danger comes from the well financed RINO, progressive good old boys who have admitted that they want to destroy them. Nothing can be done to change the press which is financed by and controlled by international billionaires; however, the RINOs which call themselves republicans need to be negated and retired.

  • charles17121

    As one poster has already said Ted Cruz cannot be US President or VP because he is not a natural born US Citizen and therefore does not meet one of US Constitutional requirements to hold the office of US President or VP . As for Dr. Carson meeting those requirements I can not say . Both Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson are good men and have the American constitution at hart . But we can not ignore US Constitutional law because they are good men . US Constitutional law must be enforced if "We The People are to remain a free and Constitutional Republic .

    • John OMalia

      There is precedent for people born outside the United States making credible runs for the presidency. George Romney, Mitt Romney's father, was born in Mexico to Mormon missionaries. He ran for president in 1968. Cruz's mother was a US citizen and since he was born in Canada he held duel citizenship. He has since revoked his Canadian citizenship.

      Obama might have been born in the US but his mother was not old enough to convey citizenship. His father was never a citizen. Later on it appears that he was adopted and became an Indonesian citizen. So even if Obama might have been a citizen he later on lost that right and then bragged about it going so far as to get aide in school as a foreigner. So which one is legally qualified to be President?

    • http://www.survivingurbancrisis.com/ Silas Longshot

      'Citizenship' plainly doesn't mean a thing to democrats, posing and electing king zero, a nobody from nowhere, raised as an INDONESIAN CITIZEN as a child (so to attend the muzlim schools in that nation) with a non-citizen father and an underage woman, and most likely born in Kenya (according to his grandmother who claims to have witnessed the birth). But, I'm sure they'll bring that up against an republican.

    • cdansreau

      Ditto! I will say that i like Cruz as a person and think he would be good in congress, But! he is not a natural born citizen. I am hoping that a conservative wins the election and has the FBI investigate Obama's background with emergency authorization. we cannot let it slide that a fraud and imposter was imposed on us by a political party. With Cruz as a presidential candidate we absolve obama and ignore the constitution.

    • iamcandy

      You need to read the Constitution, Article XIV, Sec.1, then look up the definition of naturalized.

    • Joel0903

      Cruz is clearly a natural born citizen under the US Constitution. The SC has never ruled on the meaning of the phrase, but other courts have, repeatedly -going back to at least the 1850s, stated that a child is a natural born citizen if he is born to a US citizen - even if that happens overseas (else many babies of TWO US citizens living overseas due to military service, for example, would be ineligible. This was clearly not the purpose of the phrase in the Constitution.).

  • morefandave

  • iamcandy

    The Constitution, Amendment XIV, Sec 1. which states; All persons born or NATURALIZED in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States......The definition of Naturalized is: One who, having been born in another country or otherwise reared as a foreigner, has been granted U.S. citizenship and the rights and privileges of that status. Cruz's mother was born in the US, his father in Cuba, but is a naturalized citizen. Ted Cruz was born in Canada, to Americans, which gives him DUAL citizenship. Ted Cruz is eligible to run for president & spreading that nonsense around is simply ignorant of the facts.

    There is too much misinformation going on here. Please read the Constitution, Amendment XIV Section1. A person born in the US or a NATURALIZED CITIZEN can be president.

          His father is a NATURALIZED CITIZEN. Ted Cruz has DUAL citizenship. I give up...I'm done trying to educate someone who can't understand or care about the truth.

          It is understood by the founders based on Black's law that natural-born means BOTH parents are to be born here to be considered presidential material.

        • proudtexan62

          I would wait and see alleged comment!! Don't even mention him in the same breath with Obama. There is a huge difference. Ted Cruz is an Constitutional Attorney and knows more about the Constitution of the United States of America than you will ever know. He knows whether or not he is eligible and will act accordingly. Ted Cruz is one of a handful of leaders in Washington who can lead us through this hell we are experiencing now and back on the road to restoring our Country. You'd better get on the bandwagon of those who can really help save our country instead of trying to degrade and discredit them!!!

        • Alleged Comment

          They said the same thing about the sodomite negro. The one that would unite US. Unite the world and get everybody to love US.

          The sodomite negro was going to make everything allright and we can feel good about ourselves. As we all know now the negro turned out to be a DISASTER!!!

          An embarrassment, a liability, and a grave danger to our security.

          NOPE! If the negro was NOT Constitutionally qualified and neither is Ted Cruz there is a reason why it was written like that.

          Now you want us to put in another unconstitutionally qualified guy???

          It says "natural born Citizen", not "natural born American"

          You seem to be leaving out the citizen part.

          The second half specifies "or a Citizen of
          the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this
          Constitution," so at that time only (those who were living citizens) at the inception, you could be foreign born and be president. Any one born after the inception of that time, you must be a natural born Citizen, of parents who are citizens of the US. Otherwise there would be a void of people who could not be presidents if the parents needed to be born in the US. Prior to the adoption, the land was under british rule.

        • LeSellers

          Your citation does not address the issue at hand. It does not define what a natural born citizen is.

          You're reading more into that statement than those who wrote it meant.

      Article II Section 1 Paragraph 5: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of
      the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this
      Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;" You do have to be a natural born citizen, not a naturalized citizen. That said, I don't see how Mr Cruz is NOT a natural born citizen. If either parent is a U.S. citizen, the child is a natural born U.S. citizen. Nothing in the Constitution says that "natural born Citizen" means something different when talking about a candidate for president than it does in other contexts.

      • sc

        then you need to read the book that the framers used when they wrote the constitution, "The Laws of Nations" by E. Vattel. it defines what a natural born citizen is.

        • Mark Daniel Johansen

          I'm not familiar with this book. What does it say that you consider relevant here? Of course even if it's true that the founders read it, that doesn't prove that they agreed with everything in it or intended to invoke it when they used conventional phrases like "natural born citizen".

        • sc

          this book along with Blackstonem, were the main sources for the framers, when they framed the constitution, and in the constitution it is plain that they knew the difference between Natural born citizens and native born citizens or they would not have made reference to the distinct two different types, then there is a third type and that is a naturalized citizen, one of those is the vermin known as George Soros.

          Stop repeating yourself. The 14th Amendment has nothing to do with the constitutional qualifications for holding the office of the president.

        • Mark Daniel Johansen

          The 14th amendment defines the requirements to be a citizen. It does not define the qualifications for president. The original text makes pretty clear that not all citizens are eligible to be president. If the intent was that any citizen could be president, they would have simply said "citizen". But they didn't, they said "natural born citizen or citizen as of" etc. That pretty clearly means only a subset of citizens can be president.

    A naturalized citizen is a person who was born an alien, but has lawfully become a citizen of the United States under the U.S. Constitution and laws. I am editing so not to confuse anyone. Ted Cruz's father was a naturalized citizen.

    • StuckInCali2Long

      Cruz is not a naturalized citizen. His mother is a US citizen which made him a US citizen at birth. He had dual citizenship, but gave up his Canadian one.

      • iamcandy

        I was giving the definition of a naturalized citizen. I did not say Ted Cruz was, but his father a naturalized citizen. (see my comment below)

  • UpLateAgain

    I would gladly support either one of these men for president, though my preference is Ben Carson. He's a pragmatist, has a sense of history and our origins and what made us great, has flawless integrity, and is a professional problem solver. I am a member of the draft Ben Carson movement. And I'm already enjoying calling liberals who oppose him racists to their faces.

      Whoa, Kemosabe. One could oppose Ben Carson on grounds not racist. I like Carson, BUT IF ONE DOESN'T, ----- wait a minute, You are kidding and making fun of the racist liberals.

  • Ron Bedell

    I know nothing about Ben Carson. And Ted Cruz is not a Natural Born Citizen. Ted was born in Canada and his father became an America citizen many years after Ted was born in Canada. Cruz is about as inelligible as Obama is to be President.

    • Joel0903

      His mother was a US citizen at the time of his birth. She was also a natural born citizen, so there is no issue of the amount of time she had to live in the US before his birth (I haven't looked to see when they moved to Canada or how long they lived there before he was born because it's a non-issue).

      • LeSellers

        How long they were there is, as you say, not an issue. The fact that they were there at all is what raises the question. A person born outside of USmerican territory (unless while the parents were on duty for the USmerican government) is not a natural born citizen.

        Further, Cruz's father was not an USmerican citizen at the time of his birth, so that disqualifies him, as well.

        Even he admits he had dual national status, which is a third basis for ineligibility. (He renounced that citizenship, but too late, even had the other two questions not been fatal to his hope).

        Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Joel0903

          It does not. Only one parent has to be a citizen. This has been settled law for more than a century. Also, take a situation where you and your wife - U.S. citizens - are working for Sony, for example, in Japan. If you have a child, why would he NOT be a natural born citizen? The idea that you would have to become a nationalized citizen if you're born to a US citizen is simply asinine. The dual nationalization isn't an issue either. You can't make the argument that the dual nationalization is an automatic deterrent, since many countries automatically make any person born inside their nation a citizen (including the US) unless born to foreign diplomats on that country's soil.

        • LeSellers

          Your theoretical child would be a native citizen, but not a natural born citizen. He would not need to become a naturalized citizen.

          So many people here claim that this question has been settled in O'bama's favor "for more than a cetnruy", but they never offer any evidence for this.

          Some claim that the XIV gives congress the power to change the definition of "natural born citizen", but, again, with no evidence.

          Dual citizenship is a disqualifier since it at least implies dual allegiance which is what this is all about.

          Vattel's La loi des gens, the Founders' source for this definition (and many more), explicitly states that both parents must be citizens and that the child be born within the territory of the country in question (with the exception of those serving on official government capacities in a foreign territory). Franklin and Washington, who both read the original French, understood what he meant, and that's why that specific term is in the Constitution. (There were others there, too, who read the Swiss book, and doubtless felt no need to further define the phrase.)

          SCotuS has stated (on several occasions) that this is the source for the phrase (Happerset is one such case). Absent an explicit statement by the Founders or an amendment to the Document giving a different definition, only those persons who were born on USmerican soil to two citizen parents are eligible to the office of the presidency. SCotuS has even quoted the part where Vattel defines the words.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Joel0903

          Under the law, he would be a natural born citizen - eligible to be President. It's silly to disqualify someone under those circumstances. Even in the 18th century, the founders new that SOME businessmen traveled to and from Europe every year. They almost always took their entire family during these trips. It wasn't a large amount of the population, but it was often the upper middle class. Or lawmakers or members of the (future) Presidents' cabinets.

        • LeSellers

          "Under the law …": What law?

          You may think it silly, they did not. Recall that, prior to George III's reign, his father and grandfather were neither "natural born citizens", neither spoke English (but, rather, German), and neither loved the English (nor Irish) people. To the Framers, a natural born citizen requirement would have been supremely logical. George himself did not love the English, but even though born in England, and speaking English, was much more German than British.

          Between the two of you, I'll take the Founders anytime.

          Mr. Magoo O'bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

        • Joel0903

          The law in question would be the US Constitution. The Supreme never had to rule on the meaning of the phrase - since it was never an issue, but lower courts did take up the meaning of the term in several suits. The Immigration and Naturalization act also talks about obtaining US citizenship at birth:

          http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english/legal-considerations/us-citizenship-laws-policies/citizenship-child-born-abroad.html

          A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) of the INA provided the U.S. citizen parent was physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child's birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen, is required.

          For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen, is required for physical presence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.) The U.S. citizen parent must be the genetic or the gestational parent and the legal parent of the child under local law at the time and place of the child’s birth to transmit U.S. citizenship.

        • LeSellers

          Yet the Supreme Court has ruled on the phrase "natural born citizen".

          "new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization. [The Constitution] "does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. … 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."

          The court also cited Vattel (La loi des gens, The Law of Nations) as the source of the phrase: Minor v. Happersett.

          Do not confuse the two concepts: a natural born citizen is a citizen, but not all citizens are natural born. Vattel distinguishes between natural born and native born.

      In order for a person to be a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, they must be born in the United States of two parents who were both U.S. citizens before the child was born in the U.S.

    Those who are born outside the United States to one parent who is a U.S. citizen and the other who is an alien, provided the citizen parent lived in the United States or its possessions for at least five years, at least two of them after age 14. This makes Cruz a citizen at birth. Olson, the Bush solicitor general defended John McCain in a 2008 lawsuit alleging McCain was ineligible to be president, “My conclusion would be that if you are a citizen as a consequence of your birth, that’s a natural-born citizen.” He was successful in his defense. That would likely be the conclusion of any challenge to Cruz’s eligibility, as well.

    Cruz is not a natural born citizen, as required under Article II, Section 1, or that he’s Constitutionally eligible to be President.

    Cruz was born in Canada to a mother who was an American citizen but a father who was a Cuban citizen. His father did not become a naturalized American citizen until 2005.

    It`s one thing to have a President and not be able to prove he is eligible and another to have proof he is not eligible. fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me.
    Big Big mistake to put one in for President knowing they are not eligible, two wrongs don`t make a right. Only fools would elect someone knowing they are not eligible. If we are not going to go by the Constitution why not elect PUTIN for President.

    • Patriotbabe

      The difference between Cruz and Obama is that Cruz can produce a legal document proving his birthplace, and his love for America without a doubt. Obama struggled for a long time, under pressure, to produce a phony birth certificate from Hawaii which had a serial number out of sequence from the other newborns in the hospital where he was born. His Social Security number belongs to a man in Connecticut. And, among so many other things, he never speaks for a love the United States. Even his wife was not proud of the US until her husband, a half-black man, was elected POTUS. I will take Ted Cruz any day in a fight to serve and protect the citizens and land of the United States. Obama is a phony and a traitor.

          I am a believer in our Constitution, but if somehow we have to settle an election between someone like Hillary or Cruz ( if an amendment was made to accept him as the first non-native born), I would definitely vote for Cruz. But, we are still so early in the decision-making process, and we haven't heard any news about that sort of amendment, another worthy candidate is most likely. We have to stand firm, though, that there are no primary candidates who are liberal republicans like Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, etc. These people are the reason smart people stay home on Election Day.
