Well, Rush Limbaugh’s guest host, Mark Steyn goes birther in a perfectly sensible way which will no doubt make Obots’ collective heads… REJOICE! And – it kills me to say this – I happened to agree: Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President. He was born in Canada of a British subject (his father, who emigrated there from Cuba). Now, his mother is American, but “natural-born citizen,” as opposed to merely “citizen,” is the higher standard required for the presidency.
The Founders intended it very purposefully. Why? Loyalty. They did not want a whisper of divided loyalties. They were a little sensitive about that, quite understandably. You know, the whole Revolution thing. Long train of abuses. Usurpations. Those things. They were a little fussy about protecting that which they staked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
So as much as I love Ted Cruz, and can brag that he follows me on Twitter (I know. I have no life.) the guy just isn’t eligible. He’s a citizen, yes. But he’s not a natural-born citizen. So he can’t be President. I know this is extremely controversial, and quite apart from Minor v Happersett, not yet addressed by SCOTUS, but gang, Cruz can’t be POTUS.
Here’s the 4+ minutes of audio.
