Barack Obama AND Ted Cruz are natural-born citizens

Ted Cruz is just as eligible as Barack Obama ever was. Their mothers were American citizens; their fathers (of record*) were foreigners.

Cruz born in Canada

“The Constitution directly addresses the minimum qualifications necessary to serve as President. In addition to requiring thirty-five years of age and fourteen years of residency, the Constitution limits the presidency to “a natural born Citizen.”1. U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 5. All the sources routinely used to interpret the Constitution confirm that the phrase “natural born Citizen” has a specific meaning: namely, someone who was a U.S. citizen at birth with no need to go through a naturalization proceeding at some later time. And Congress has made equally clear from the time of the framing of the Constitution to the current day that, subject to certain residency requirements on the parents, someone born to a U.S. citizen parent generally becomes a U.S. citizen without regard to whether the birth takes place in Canada, the Canal Zone, or the continental United States.”

*My “birther” issues center on what I believe is a lie about Obama’s baby daddy. I think his real father was an American who knocked up Ann Dunham at the end of her senior year in high school and that this is the reason the Dunhams suddenly moved to Hawaii that summer. It was 1961. A single mom having a bi-racial bastard was easier to cover up in Hawaii than in Seattle. I think Obama’s real birth was probably in March and that the August date was faked up to make it possible for the handy and willing Barack Sr. to swap his name for a green card.

HAPPY MONDAY!

Had a really nice weekend. Went to see Miss Isabel in her school’s production of the Wizard of Oz. Those kids put an awful lot of work into it, as the production lasted for more than 90 minutes. Many of the costumes and scenery were borrowed from two local theater companies. The boy who played the Cowardly Lion slipped in a couple ad libs and was really funny. I got a chance to talk to him after the performance and complemented him on his sense of comedic timing and told him he could do anything he dreamed of if he worked hard enough for it. We met some of SIL’s family that we hadn’t before and had a nice lunch at Portillo’s with everybody before coming home.

I went to work this morning, as usual, and it was just starting to snow a bit when I left. Minutes later, the streets were covered with snow. I friended BigFurHat from IOTW Reports on FB yesterday and first thing this morning he was condemning Fat Al Gore to Global Warming Hell as he shoveled three inches of the white stuff. Guess Old Man Winter isn’t quite done with us yet.

Steve Goddard is a vocal climate change “denier.” Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

BHO suggests voting be mandatory

IMHO, mandatory voting would be about rounding people up so the gummint can tag and bag us. As for Mr. Rules Are For Thee, But Not For Me …
