The Canadian Usurper and the Nigerians

Ted Cruz's donation begging site shared a security certificate with Nigerian scammers.

Let's see: Cruz makes his announcement at an evangelistic school founded on the pillars of homophobia and racism (with a later tinge of teletubby-hating) in front of students who were required to be there to hear him bloviate. At one point, he whined a little bit about being a student at a college a long way from home where he didn't know anybody-- something that everyone who goes to an out-of-state school experiences (and which I've never heard anyone else describe as a character-building event).

I was going to snark about the right-wing birthers who will line up to support a candidate who was truly born in another country and whose father wasn't an American citizen. At least The Donald is being true to his birther roots. But since Trump is mulling over his own candidacy, his attack was more rank opportunism than intellectual purity.

Speaking of voting for Ted Cruz:

The sets of "intellectual purity" and "Donald Trump" have no known union.

I thought you had to be born in the USA to be president? Am I wrong?

Comrade Misfit said...

Stu, "natural born", according to the Constitution. Which means that one is either born on American soil or is born in another nation to parents who are citizens. If only one parent is a citizen, than that parent had to have lived in the U.S. for at least five years and at least two years after turning 14.

Cruz was likely born with triple citizenship: His mother was an American, his father was Cuban and he was born on Canadian soil. So will the GOP nominate a naturally-born Commie? Stay tuned....
