    What's the "definite element" which unites the Tea Party? I'm not trying to trick you or something. I'm just curious what you believe it to be.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    From what I understand, a natural born American can be born outside the US if the parent or parents are Americans. That is regulated in the US constitution and because the birthers tried to make it into something it was not with Obama does not mean that democrats have to be equally narrow minded and unfair to do this with Cruz as a retaliation because of what happened to Obama.

    You don't have to be born in Canada to be prime minster you just have to be a citizen.

    Don't get me wrong, I believe Cruz is Constitutionally eligible to be president. I'm just dancing at the hypocrisy of the right.

    To be fair, the far, far, far right is questioning Cruz in largely the same light as they did Obama.

    It's the rest of the GOP that's being a bunch of hypocrites.

    Maybe the far right has another issue with Cruz, just like Obama is half black, Cruz is half latino. I do not know whether that is the problem for the extreme right but it is possible.

    Cruz's parents should have declared his birth to the nearest embassy in canada and had them issue some forms declaring his citizenship. It does not seem to be a technical requirement, but they do say it could interfere with his rights as a citizen if his parents did not go through that process. They did neglect doing that probably for purposes of gaining canadian benefits restricted from US citizens. The reality is it makes his citizenship much more questionable than Obama's was considering Obama had a BC from within the US and his parents certainly never needed to go contact a US embassy to have him declared a citizen. There is actuallty a basis for questioning cruz's citizenship due to lack of following process. It does not mean he is not a citizen, just that it is far more questionable than a person who could prove they were born in america to an american citizen. But birthers are crazy and do not care about their hypocrisy.

    We will see about that when he runs and faces legal challenges to his candidacy in courts like Obama did. It is early for any of those challenges to be filed, and you cannot say they are treating it the same until it is the proper time to file them and they are either filed or not.
