If you're a fan of Texas' Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz and you're worried he might face a birther problem should he decide to run for president, you can rest easier knowing that Fox Nation has his back. Unlike with President Obama, Cruz's spokesperson's word is good enough to allay concerns about his citizenship. Let's compare and contrast.
Here's the article about Cruz, posted March 11:
The post excerpts an article by Washington Examiner's Byron York. York quotes a note from Cruz' spokesman saying he's a "citizen by birth" and then goes on to say:
The bottom line in the case of Cruz, who was born in Canada in 1970, is that his father was an immigrant from Cuba and not a U.S. citizen at the time of young Cruz’s birth, but his mother was born and raised in the United States. The law in effect then, and now, made Ted Cruz a U.S. citizen at birth. Although the drafters of the Constitution did not define what they meant when they required an American president to be a “natural born citizen,” it is generally thought that “citizen by birth” is the best modern-day equivalent. On that basis, Cruz appears entirely eligible — if he ever chooses to pursue the White House.
BTW, Wasn’t their 2008 golden boy McCain born in Panama?
OK. How about this:
Bolling commented on how strange it was that the family of the doctor in Hawaii who delivered Obama were clueless about Obama’s birth and he wondered, “if you gave birth to the President of the United States, don’t you think your family would know about it?” Then after Geller made her case, Bolling concluded about whether the document was altered, “it may or may not be, but it certainly opens up the can of worms that there are at least questions for it.” Even more strange was how Fox contributors Dr. Keith Ablow and Monica Crowley, who were also guests on the panel, appeared to just nod at some of Geller’s rantings. Oh well, guess one shouldn’t get too worked up about failing to convince everyone about anything these days.
“It may possibly be the greatest assembly of comedy since the movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, which would be an appropriate title for this year’s gathering.”
Especially if one of the attendees kicks the bucket after crashing his (or her) car like the late Jimmy Durante did in that classic 1963 comedy.
Speaking of enjoying a good laugh, this weekend’s CPAC should provide plenty with Sarah, Newt, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Alan West with an appetizer of “The Donald” joining the circus. It may possibly be the greatest assembly of comedy since the movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, which would be an appropriate title for this year’s gathering.
Now we have a new sty of pigs who should be harassed by the birthers; Ted “Uncle Joe McCarthy” Cruz and Marco “Gulp slurp gulp” Rubio. I mean, if the birthers were actually concerned about a candidate’s citizenship and not whether he’s African-American. But, nobody has ever accused birthers of being honest or not being hypocrites.
