Is Ted Cruz Constitutionally Eligible To Be President?


Recommended Posts

Friends and confidants of Ted Cruz were quoted by the conservative blog National Review Online, as saying that the Republican junior senator from Texas is "considering a presidential run."

 

Cruz was born in 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, while his parents were working there. His Cuban-born father, who is now an American citizen, was not at the time. His mother was born in Delaware.

 

That seems to mirror exactly the false scenario created by the Birthers who insist that President Obama was born in Kenya to an American Mother and a non-American Father.

 

According to them (if it were true, which it wasn't) that would have made him ineligible to be president.

 

Therefore I'm sure they will apply the same standard to Ted Cruz.

 

If Cruz decides to run, I predict the 'birth' (LOL) of a Liberal birther movement.

I've always found Cruz to be a male Michelle Bachmann in his views. Now that the bit-ch is gone, we'll have Cruz to kick around and laugh at.

 

Did you even read the first line of my OP?

 

Jaybird has about 6 posts he recycles over and over and over. Doesn't matter what the topic is.

I actually have a friend(conservative who thinks Obama was not a natural born citizen) who is fairly consistent on this. He loves Cruz but wonders if the guy is eligible to be President. When I show him the law that says both Cruz and Obama are eligible he tells me that doesn't mean natural born citizen.

The mom get's him there, nationality wise. So indeed he's eligible, not withstanding he's about at worthy of being president as Mickey Mouse on crack.

 

Birthers are idiots. No need to play the idiot's game, IMO.

Of Course FOX News has already declared Cruz eligible, even though they drove the Birther bandwagon when it came to Obama.

They had the balls to put this in the article, like they had nothing to do with it.

Obama’s eligibility was questioned by a group of people labeled birthers because they though his Hawaii birth certificate was fake and that he was born in Kenya. His mother was from Kansas and his father from Kenya.

There's only about 6 different themes ever discussed on LIBERALforum but Epileptic is correct, I usually respond about the same way to whiny threads.

 

You're from the wingnut school of complaining about Al Gore because he doesn't ride a bicycle across country or take a row boat across the Atlantic Ocean.

Since the day of his inauguration, Ted Cruz has been gaining a foul national reputation for each of those qualities. He has voted against just about everything the Senate has voted for, leading him to his abysmal 1-13 voting record (including votes against confirmed John Kerry for Secretary of State and against the Violence Against Women Act). Cruz is fighting against the bipartisan immigration deal, brought a pistol grip to the floor of the Senate to make a ridiculous argument against gun control, and claimed that the gun show loophole doesn't exist.

News outlets around the country are running stories about Cruz's obstinance. And that story is just getting revved up. On Tuesday of this week, Cruz took his reputation to its lowest point yet, drawing the criticism of his own party.

 

Republican Sen. John McCain then further criticized Cruz, declaring: "No one on this committee at any time should impugn [Hagel's] character or his integrity." Even Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who's in the midst of anti-Obama chest-thumping ahead of a 2014 primary, said that many of Cruz's accusations and demands were "out of bounds, quite frankly." One Republican senator told Politico anonymously that Republican senators are getting "annoyed" by Cruz's tactics.

Make no mistake: Ted Cruz will almost certainly run for president one day. And like Michele Bachmann, known for her insane conspiracy theories, endless obstructionism, and undying love for the Tea Party, he won't get out of a primary. Like Bachmann, he has no appeal to the vast majority of Americans who want to get something done in Washington. Like Bachmann, he is supremely unlikable. Like Bachmann, Cruz has now been criticized by Sen. McCain and fellow Republicans for specious attacks against fellow Americans that serve no positive purpose.

And while he sounds smarter than Bachmann (unless you listen to the words he's saying), Ted Cruz is stupid in major ways. Six weeks into his term, Cruz is earning the ire of his own party and building a national reputation as a complete obstructionist willing to use baseless accusations and conspiracy theories to justify his actions. Remember, Ted Cruz thinks the U.N. is implementing an initiative called Agenda 21 to force us to live in hobbit homes. If Ted Cruz were smart, he wouldn't be so crazy and divisive when representing a state steadily coming over to the Democrats - or harboring hopes of getting elected president.

So you consider yourself to be smart when you deny the fact Hussein himself or even one of his minions can prove 100% without a doubt Hussein was born America?

 

Your sooooo smart that you just keep lying to yourself :D

 

 

I think the difference will be that Cruz will actually have a birth certificate to show

 

 

He's ineligible period

I like Mr. Cruz, but I hope he does not run for President. Not in 2016. He needs executive experience.

 

But, on the topic/question of the OP.....Yes, he is eligible. After obama, just about anyone is eligible.
