don’t borrow trouble (worrying) - for now, he’s leading the charge against Obama Care - along with Mike Lee - if he successfully leads that, then that alone is HUUUGE contribution to the Republic.

In before the anti-Cruz birthers...

If they were really interested in just simply the questions about the constitution, then they'd be using Rubio and Jindal as examples.

Both make excellent examples for discussion, and using them as discussion starters instead of Cruz, doesn't harm Cruz's attacks on ObamaCare, Illegal Amnesty, and government overreach in general.

We're fairly certain, as well, that Rubio will test the presidential waters. So why not attack him instead. After all, it makes more sense to ruin the Gang of 8 bill by attacking Rubio's citizenship than it does to ruin Cruz's desire to stop ObamaCare and Illegal amnesty.

Then they could spout off to their heart's content and nobody would care. But, no...they want Cruz to be the target.

Wonder why?

Excellent points - I hope someone makes them every time the ‘dummies’ chime in.

Because other people keep putting his name at the top of the thread. To respond to the thread means you are responding to their claims over which you have no control.

I would much prefer to discuss Rubio. He's screwed the pooch on that Amnesty bill where the Republicans decided to make him the Hood Ornament of their ugly Amnesty vehicle.

Rubio very likely cannot come back from this.

As for Jindal, to my knowledge he has done nothing for which I would object. I quite like him. I don't know if he's eligible or not because I don't think i've ever looked into it.

I find myself being in the uncomfortable position of supporting Cruz politically, but being goaded into arguing against his eligibility because OTHER PEOPLE keep making him the focus of a topic that I have been long discussing.

Yes, I would much rather we focus on someone else, but I can't make people stop referring to him.

Awww, you probably should have kept listening, he is covering right now in his normal straightforward, conservative approach.

Like I said xzins, Rand Paul Supporters.

Thanks. Once the traffic dies down you might want to put that up on a vanity post, or if you see it in an article link it through there. I bet the website is going to be slammed for hours now.

After signing, you will get this donation page. I passed, not knowing what next debacle my contribution will enable. I advise you to consider the same... contribute with your primary vote to get rid of the RINOs.

Cruz was perfect in that interview!

I think he is absolutely right on defunding Obamacare.

I'm sold. Maybe he'll Rubio us down the road. I sure hope not. But I sure am impressed and support his effort to defund.

Please go to dontfundobamacare.com and sign the petition. Then send the link to friends and family.

I cannot believe I find myself defending birthers on FR after my adversarial history with them, but ... they have long questioned the eligibility of Rubio and Jindal. It is truly a constitutional question to them.

Then where are all the Rubio/Jindal articles the last month?

Why are they attacking Cruz about an office he hasn’t even declared for?

To injure him now, to distract him now, is to play along with the liberal plan to kneecap those fighting against ObamaCare

It's not, just some people I know that support what he's been doing and would have liked to listen. I'll try to remember to include you the next time I ping for a good Cruz article or event if you'd like

Maybe onyx would help start a Cruz ping list or know how to put one together?
