He's an American. Shut up trump. Beat him on the issues that I love about trump and Cruz. Otherwise quit whining.
Trump lost me at the stupid birther issue because I knew he was just lying so nativists could put their hoods on and hate anyone who wasn't purely "American" (Code word for White). His whole campaign after that is about how to defeat all the people he hates. He has turned into Vince McMahan (who happens to be one of his close friends).
Read the following article by Andrew C. McCarthy. It will put to rest any ridiculous notions about Ted Cruz’s citizenship and his eligibility to become President.
Win a few delegates and give a long-winded victory speech sermon and then the questions get a bit tougher don't they? Ted doesn't have Trump to hide behind now that he "won" Iowa and it ain't gonna get any easier from here on out. Glenn better head on up to New Hampshire this weekend for moral support.
If Cruz was an immigrant from an unknown island and barely spoke English - he's still a better fit for office than any democrat and the currently terrorist in the White House
Cruz is gold vs the digested Taco Bell meat in office
This country needs policies not arguments of what location a babies head popped out from
I find that very strange. Cruz is one of the most talented and quick witted argument makers we have on our legal floors today. Why in the name of all that is good and decent, would he defer the argument and pass such an opportunity by?
He could have delicately played that man like a Stradivarius, then ripped the whole subject to shreds, making his point -clearing up the subject for all time. So, why did he cut him off so curtly?
There had to be a reason, and a damn good one, at that.
Was a very simple question. The guy wanted to know why Cruz didn't look to fix it until 2014...Instead he again went to the reassuring answer that his mama was from here. The real truth we will never know. Like did they pay the hospital bill oir did they go in as Canadian citizens. And what's the time line to him being born and the Cruz's signing up for Canadian voter registration. But again Ted needed to use his super powers not to answer...
Bla, bla, bla, bla....I am so sick to death of the cesspool of accusations against Ted Cruz. The guy is like the character played by Clint Eastwood in "The Gauntlet" getting attacked in every imaginable way. He is the gutsiest, most honest, most consistent man in DC who would end the cronyism and corruption that pervades Washington today....of course they are all out to take him down...they're scared to death of him. He is the one guy capable of solving the most serious issues that we have facing us today and in the near future, and as far as I'm concerned, that makes him as American as John Wayne. STFU and deal with it!
It's a bad question.
Being born in another country doesn't give you automatic citizenship of that country.
You must legally apply for citizenship of that country. And as a child born to a U.S. citizen, you're given automatic status of your parent's U.S. citizenship. Cruz's mother never applied to be a citizen of Canada, it was nothing more than a job she took on abroad with Cruz's father.
Both of his parents were legal citizens of the U.S. to begin with, before he was born. So really, the argument itself is moot.
How can a guy think he has the judgement to be president when he didnt even know he was a citizen of another country.....This is beyond ridiculousness.
Too bad they are both ineligible.
Ted Cruz should have answered the mans question.
The problem is that a Canadian with one citizen parent is the same as a Kenyan with one citizen parent, under the law. I happen to think that both are eligible, because 1) if one of your parents was an American citizen when you were born, you were born an American citizen, and 2) Obama might have been born in the US. We KNOW Cruz wasn’t born in the US. So what, you were born a citizen, let the voters decide. That’s my honest opinion. What twists my brains into knots is hearing people argue ‘Person A’ who was rumored to be foreign-born to an American mother, despite the evidence saying he was native born, isn’t eligible, whereas ‘Person B’ who was DEFINITELY foreign born with an American mother, is eligible.
That’s just dumber than a bag of hammers. If you aren’t an Obama birther, you can reasonably support Cruz. If you are, you can still support him, it just means you’re an idiot.
There are a lot of idiots.
The question has been in the public for several months, and knowing that and even where to freaking look for the answer, anybody who hasn't done their own research by now is wasting everybody's time, and wasting an opportunity to pose a pertinent/new question.
Trump's the one who keep flogging this dead horse but...
Maybe the idiots who keep bringing it up need to be flogged anyway.
It's not a legit question any more than, "When did you stop beating your wife?" It assumes that Ted Cruz claimed to not know about the dual citizenship until last year, and he has never made that claim. He's answered that elsewhere already, in public and on the record, so it's time to move on.
Why are all of you commenters getting so angry and defensive??? The guy asking the question said specifically that he was not questioning Cruz's eligibility or citizenship. It was about his credibility. If Cruz is supposed to be the sharpest and smartest mind in Washington DC, which I think he is, then one would think that he would know about his dual-citizenship before 2014. So he was either lying in 2014, or he was extremely ignorant, and the way he got flustered and dodged this man's question makes me believe that he lied back in 2014, and that he knew all along that he was a dual-citizen.
It is a legit question? If you lived in the U.S. your entire life as a U.S. citizen, what would prompt you to look up to see if you also had a Canadian citizenship? I don't think that would be on the minds of many people and the fact that Cruz discovered his dual citizenship later in life has no bearing whatsoever on whether he is qualified to be president.
Cruz has demonstrated that he actually understands the constitution which makes it possible to actually follow it. It is hard to follow something you haven't read and don't understand. The questions you should be asking deal with things that he has the power to do while in office. Immigration enforcement, foreign policy, drug enforcement, supreme court justice appointments, and what types of legislation he would veto vs support.
He is my first pick because of the supreme court appointments and the types of legislation he would veto and support. I wish he aligned more closely with my own opinions on foreign policy, immigration enforcement, and drug enforcement.
The question was about his credibility. How come he was unaware, and what prompted him to research if he had a Canadian citizenship? Tis a little fishy.
The founders were what made up most of the first Congress.
Enough already with the..."That's a legit question".
Quit playing fetch like an obedient dog every time someone throws a ball.
"There is an argument because the Constitution requires a “natural born” citizen. It says nothing allowing being born in a foreign nation as long as you don’t live there for too many years."
Go read the Federalist papers. The US COnstitution was based on many, many source documents, including the Law of Nations. Now at the time, a person born in a foreign country became a citizen of their Father, but there were of course exceptions. This was largely because most things were passed patrilinearly. Today's US, after Suffrage would no longer recognize it as only belonging to children of men who were citizens, but those who are children of any parent who are citizen, at least until the age of majority when they could revoke that claim.
Cruz gets attacked every which direction, but don't say anything about Rubio God forbid. Maybe I've missed something but haven't Rubio talked crap to other candidates but don't let anybody else say anything to Rubio. But Cruz seems to me he's trying to stand up for the right things unless again I'm missing something. And they peg Cruz as if he is Satan this is the craziest bs ever. These guys need to quit dividing each other and unite or Clinton going jump in and win. They are going after the gop like no tomarrow and the same ppl are letting a lying, cheating, pretty much murderous scumbag just skate by. What the hell is wrong with us Americans this is sick.
Smart people look for authoritative sources, perhaps the Harvard Law Review. Ted is a Natural Born Citizen.

What is even more amusing is Killary IS the Dem Establishment while being amused at Berns calling her out. What a freak show.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:43pm
“I don’t think we should be any harder on her”
WHY THE HELL NOT? Take that traitorous witch down.
His point was, that you are fair with everyone. That you don't attack her simply because of who she is, you only go after her based on the law that's on the books and nothing more or less. He's exactly right in saying that.
Ready for more long-winded political theater for the masses with no consequences.
We've seen that movie before, not interested.
Well Chaffetz' threats will no doubt put Hitlary in her place. She better watch out. The FBI, CIA and heaven knows who else is investigating her and evidently with no intentions of prosecuting, so I'm sure Chaffetz will take care of this. More do nothing from our elected "officials" as they spend our tax dollars doing............ you guessed it...... NOTHING!
the only probe will be the probe the American people will get having to pay for another fruitless investigation where nothing will be done regardless of evidence found.
 February 4, 2016 at 1:32pm
So right, LHS. I will never understand the childishness of excusing illegal actions that got Americans murdered being justified by saying, “they did it too”. What are they 5?
Moreover, even the article admits that they didn't do it to even a fraction of the degree nor did they purposefully have information stripped of its classification. It's like the man man whose stone drunk pointing fingers at the man who used alcoholic mouthwash.
When a law is not enforced equally, it presents all sorts of problems. They won't be charging Rice or Powell for the violations, and so any attempt to charge Clinton for her violations risks looking entirely partisan.
This is why you make sure to hold your own to the law, or else the other side knows they won't have to.

It’s rather sad when even Iraq protects itself better than our Progressives. Then again, Iraq doesn’t actually want to destroy itself from within.
 February 2, 2016 at 5:32pm
Wow. A disgusting user name like BabyParts speaks for itself. It apparently wants to also speak for you, Balthazor. It is not worthy of a response IMO nor would an indoctrinated ideologue comprehend the level of detail you were proposing voters conduct on candidates. BP prefers the fast-food voting approach and letting a potentially hackable app due to it’s vetting. The dumbing down of Amerika continues.
 February 2, 2016 at 5:15pm
Progressives are a f’n disgrace. Welcome to gender neutral Amerika.
Millennial males are a disgrace. This is what happens when everyone gets a trophy.
Everyone’s a winner. Child worship.
It’s now okay for a man to put a bun in his hair. Welcome to the new pussified America.
Not long ago if you showed up at the bar looking like this at school you'd get beat.
 February 2, 2016 at 5:06pm
“That would be like hiring a lawyer who’s education consisted of looking up “United States Laws” on Wikipedia.”
That resembles the educational background of our actor, er I mean, acting Prez.
 February 2, 2016 at 4:58pm
LOL I am very sure lying is involved in MULTIPLE divorces and bankruptcies. Perhaps one of each is excusable. But, even if you live in a bubble of innocence, the sheer number of both for Donald speak directly to his character.
Integrity and honor ain’t what it used to be.
 February 2, 2016 at 4:50pm
Does it work as well as the Microsoft one that voted for Rubio? kidding
 February 2, 2016 at 4:45pm
That is hysterical, Marc. The name isn’t fake. It was/is one of Barry’s many names/identities and was most likely the name he used to get his foreign student application in college. You know, the document that would prove his massive intellect that he sealed on one of his first days as Prez.
 February 2, 2016 at 4:39pm
Well, she was told they were a peacful, loving people and all. And Germany did need an underclass of hired help. So, yeah, I get her nomination. Trump’s is mind boggling though. “Vigorous Peace Through Strength” is the exact opposite reason why 0bama received his Peace Pipe Prize.
February 2, 2016 at 4:22pm
You don’t think any lying was involved in ANY of those situations or his numerous policy flip-flops. Please. Donald changes his loyalties as often as the political wind of self-promotion and self-advantage blows. In all fairness, I doubt even Donald knows what he genuinely believes in so long as he personally benefits.
February 2, 2016 at 4:11pm
Oh hell slayer, there’s a scenario I hadn’t considered. Clinton wins the nomination with the assist from Trump. Then, 0bama finally indicts the witch in November and EO’s his continued Presidency for the good of the country. That has to be as good of a script as they have already written.
Of course, it is ruinous for the country but it would be a bit funny to see Zero once again steal Killary’s thunder.
 February 2, 2016 at 4:05pm
True but even Donald knows Brown adds zero to the ticket.
But his vote stopped the ACA didn't it?
Wait....didn't it? Oh yeah, the rules changed.
SLAP: That's right about changing the rules. It worked for "Dead Fish" Rahm who bypassed state residency to run for mayor of Chicago. Wait until Hillary is indicted and they call-up Uncle Joe to take her place. He's already in the dugout working out misdirection pitches. lol
Slap, Brown never got to vote on the ACA. When Reid finally agreed to seat Brown in the Senate the bill was back in the house for their recommended changes and approval. Pelosi pulled an end run seeing that Brown's presence in the Senate could stall or kill the bill just Deemed The Bill As Passed, the 0bama rapidly signed it into law. And, the Demwits own it lock, stock, and barrel.
I wonder how many people Trump has promised the VP to.
 February 2, 2016 at 4:00pm
I am quite certain 0bama will not fade quietly away or be as respectful as when W handed off the reins to him 7 years ago. I fear you are correct, Snow. “An unsettling year” will be an understatement.
