Skip to comments.Hillary, Obama, & Dems will destroy Cruz over his eligibility

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.
Many FReepers are clamoring to see Donald Trump choose Ted Cruz as his choice for Vice-President. Indeed, it is the ultimate selection, even better than when McCain chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for VP in 2008: Cruz is only in his mid-40s. He has a command of the Constitution and conservatism like no other Republican has had in a generation, and he is a skilled and polished debater who would absolutely eat his Democrat opponent for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and defecate them back out even before the VP debate begins.
Unfortunately, the only thing standing in Cruz's way is the very prestigious document that he has a firm command of: The U.S. Constitution.
Now, I don't want to hear about how "Well, Obama is President, so that means Cruz should, too!" You conveniently ignore the fact that we are dealing with leftists. Leftists like Hillary/Obama are immune from hypocrisy and double-standards. If Rafael "Ted" Cruz is handed the GOP nomination by the corrupt GOP leadership, or if he is selected for VP by Donald Trump, he will get utterly destroyed.
- Rafael "Ted" Cruz was clearly born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
- Rafael "Ted" Cruz kept his Canadian citizenship and did not renounce it until May 2014 . Not 1984, not 1994, not even in 2004. But just 2 years ago.
- Rafael "Ted" Cruz's Mother may have held Canadian citizenship in 1970. In 1970, Canada did NOT allow dual-citizenship.
- Rafael "Ted" Cruz's Father did not become a naturalized U.S. citizen until 2005.
- His parents failed to file a CRBA form which is required by US law. Teds parents did not fill out the required form until 1986.
So there you have it. Don't get mad at me, Trump actually brought this up so Cruz would have the time to defuse it.
Here's what's going to happen:
- Wacko FL Congressman Alan Grayson will do the dirty work and file a lawsuit against Cruz for being on the ticket.
- Hillary Clinton and Obama will say that we all need to "stick to the issues" and not get caught up over "this birther nonsense."
- Behind the scenes however, Obama's DOJ, appointed leftist judges, the media, and various leftist activist groups will continue to feed the narrative and call on Cruz to "step down."
- Trump will be unable to push his message to the people, because he's going to be dealing with Cruz's eligibility distraction.
Now, I don't have a problem with Cruz being Trump's choice VP (Yes, I would still vote for a Trump/Cruz ticket, even though I hate Cruz for not defending Trump over the thugs who shut down his rally, even though he's a smarmy know-it-all who sold his soul to the GOPe, and even though that he'll get destroyed over his eligibility). So, Donald Trump should choose someone who is not only eligible, but will compliment him on the ticket as well (Duncan Hunter, Jr., IMO).
Where’s the awe not this shit again meme?
Was Cruz’s mother a u.s. citizen when he was born?
Hey, I'm just the messenger. If Cruz was eligible, I would be willing to overlook his dirty tactics and would enthusiastically support him as VP. But Hillary/Obama are mofos.
Would hillary have any trouble getting the discussion going in the courts? It wouldn’t be settled in time, and that would make Cruz unelectable.
Quickest way to shut a Cruz supporter up when they’re being obnoxious? — Ask them where they stood on the Obama birther issue.
I recognize some posters names as pretty hardcore birthers with heaps and heaps of ridicule towards those that disagreed with them.
Now the shoe is on the other foot and they’re wishing those posts they made would go away.
Duncan Hunter, Jr
I’ll second that
You recognize hard core birthers when you weren’t even here during the height of the eligibility issue. Impressive.
Funny that. Many who claim to be consistent Constitutional conservatives twist themselves into pretzels to make a Cuban/Canadian/American into a natural born citizen.
Anyone who has read the founders writings knows what they meant.
Naturally a US citizen because one born here of citizen parents cannot be anything else.
Solely a US citizen.
She was born in the USA but there is a document showing she may have registered to vote in Canada. So her citizenship has been questioned.
Cruz has destroyed himself ...
Personally I don’t think it matters anymore.
Cruz’s “Catching Fire” meme never really... well... caught fire. He’s a runner up, and quite frankly, his campaign associations are troubling (Jeff “Winning > Integrity” Roe, Glenn “Stabby the Clown” Beck, Kevin “Kill the Gays” Swanson, etc...).
Anti-Trumpers are always happy to say stuff like “look at how 60% of Republicans don’t want Trump”, but the converse of that is true, and the numbers are worse for Cruz.
Trump should pick a solid conservative that is well liked and people would be willing to swallow as a second-fiddle voice in the administration even if they’re “establishment”, and as long as they haven’t been part of the NAFTA/invaders problem, they will likely be acceptable to most people.
It’s been hashed out here darn near daily and several courts have even ruled on it. Posting another ridiculous vanity only causes more animosity. Laz hit it out of the park yesterday, and his is the only vanity worth a poop lately.
Those who demand that others disregard the Constitution are part of the problem. The Constitution has not changed with regard to eligibility since it was signed. The fact that progressives have so damaged the constitution that Conservatives ignore it as well is perhaps THE MAJOR cause of America’s downfall.
The Constitution is purported to be The Law of the Land. How can it be so easily discarded? Look around you.
| Very well stated piece.
If the law is hazy, there's no question the lefties will do anything necessary to take Cruz or Trump/Cruz out on the issue. And with Obama in office and Roberts in the SCOTUS, there's a very good probability that the GOP is out to lunch in the general.
That meme makes me laugh every time.
That is in doubt. Why are the records sealed unless there is something to hide?
What about Ted Cruz for Attorney General? Eligibility null and void.
Has the *Cruz woman problem* gone public yet ?
