The Obama precedent makes Ted Cruz eligible. The moonbat to this payback will be priceless.
No, it doesn't.
That would be like saying "Because person X got away with murder, I can murder whoever I want w/o repercussion."
It’s so too bad every thread about Ted Cruz turns into this.
Ted Cruz himself has been asked about this absurdity that being born in Canada to an American mother who was working there at the time makes him ineligible to run for President.
Ted Cruz opined that natural born citizen does NOT mean born on U.S. soil but means, a citizen WHEN BORN, which he views as the opposite of becoming a citizen by going through a naturalization process.
Natural born vs. naturalized.
That’s the positioning of the two kinds of citizenship, per Cruz himself.
It really has nothing to do with Obama. With or without Obama, Cruz would say the same thing about himself.
You will find people here who will claim that Ted Cruz is a Canadian. You will even find people who will claim that he is CUBAN. Oh yes...because his father was born in Cuba and immigrated to America before marrying his mother here. I’ll just throw this into the silliness pot - they have him being so foreign that he isn’t an American AT ALL. So it’s not even needed to claim he’s not natural born (in their view of natural born) because he’s not even American.
I stick with what Cruz says about himself. He has plenty of company from legal scholars, but there are always these outliers...
