Ted Cruz: Born in Canada, Says He’s Article II Eligible. What Say You?

Today on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told reporter Jonathan Karl that he believes that he is eligible to run for President, even though he is born in Canada. The occasion was Cruz’ trip to Iowa, a place that no senator goes for no reason.

The fact that Barack Hussein Obama was allowed to not only run for president, enabled by a slobbering sycophantic dinosaur media, but be elected, demonstrates that despite their alleged education, the population is largely completely unaware of the “natural born citizen” requirement of Article II. It’s ironic, since as noted here, Obama is the walking embodiment of what the Founders were trying to protect us from with that very requirement.

Do you agree with Sen. Cruz?


  1. In my opinion it has become time to codify this issue in the Constitution just as we did with the 22nd amendment. We can define an Art. 2 NBC in such a fashion as to leave no doubt or wiggle room as to who does, and who does not, qualify to run for the highest office in the land. Ideally this same amendment would define citizenship in general to address issues like anchor babies and other abuses of our current system. This would be immigration reform that I would be willing to support. In my opinion Sen. Cruz is not eligible to run for the presidency.

  2. The Founders were clear. Fearing “divided loyalties” they wisely made Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, an intrigal part of our Constitutionql requirement for President. Canada is both British and French for all practical purposes. Does anyone in either Great Britain or France advocate having an American in the Highest Elective Office in their Countries? I think not! It is on not just this basis alone that I am of the opinion the foreigners keep their “friggen noses out!” Sorry if I’m blunt, but these days that is all people seem to understand. Chalk up Ted Cruz as another hopeful that failed to pass the Constitutional Muster. Much as I like his position on numerous issues, he is not “Natural Born.” Therefore, cannot be President. Sadly, neither can Bobby Jindahl but that’s another story. (end of subject)

  3. I agree that if a “Tea Bagger” (staying classy as ever, Garnet. Way to go!) congressman thought he could remove Obama citing Article II he’d do it, but as I say, the only way that would happen is if majorities of Americans demanded it. They aren’t so Congress won’t act. Too busy watching “Keeping up with Kardashians” when they aren’t working one of their 2 or 3 part-time jobs in Obama’s terrific economy.

    Actually, I’ve always been afraid of clowns.
