    Rubio isn't natural born. He was born in Cuba.

    I'm just trying to turn the rationale back on the race carders. If Obama's only questioned because he has a foriegn sounding name or apparently ethnicity, then so is Marco Rubio.

    Personally, I'm of the belief that the motivation for both is motivated primarily by partisan politics, not race.

    Rubio was born in 1971. His parents became citizens in 1975. Therefore, Marco Rubio could not be a Natural Born Citizen according to this definition as his parents were not US citizens at the time of his birth.

    So is it a BS citation for both, or does it mean that Marco Rubio is not eligible to be President? My opinion, for the record, is that it's an invalid citation and Rubio could become President, as Obama did.

    I hope your not referring to me. Birthers believe Obama was born in Africa. Im a constitutionalist.

    I do. Both parties keep putting up people not even qualified to run.

    Dunno, Sangha. I heard he would be disqualified to run for president because he was a C-Section baby. That's not being naturally born either....

    He was born in Miami to non-citizen parents.

    I think he's fine, but if you're going to go with the definition of Natural Born Citizen that requires both parents to be citizens, neither of his were at the time of his birth.
