    There was never any question Obama was natural born. He was born in HI of an American mother. Cruz, on the other hand, was born in Canada. See the differnece?

    Good grief. What hypocrisy? I have said that those who question Obama's citizenship and those who question Cruz's citizenship are dunderheads. Where is the hypocrisy there?

    Oh wait, are you arguing that Cruz can't be president? Because that would explain a lot....

    How come donuts and beer is a combination I have never tried before? An embarrassing oversight on my part....

    I do.

    And maybe the Congressional Research Service kinda overstepped the parameters of what was fully necessary to define Obama's citizenship but, be that as it may, their research and analysis is their research and analysis and according to them Cruz is a natural born citizen and good to go.

    Now, maybe the SCOTUS would have a different opinion. And I suppose if a legitimate plantiff could bring a reasonable case related to the natural born citizenship issue to court they may eventually get around to ruling on it.

    But until then the only thing we have approaching a "formal" determination from government is that CRS paper.

    And again, it says that if one of your parents is an American citizen then you're a "natural born" American citizen no matter where in the world you're born.

    I'm not saying that I agree or disagree with that decision (I agree with it, if you must know), or that I like or dislike Cruz (I can't stand him, if you must know). I'm just saying that it is what it is.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
