Will the Crazy Birthers Be Able to Switch Gears for Cruz?

Will those staunch defenders of the United States Constitution, Orly Taitz and Joe Arpaio, be able to suddenly and convincingly change their world view when faced with the likely presidential candidacy of Texas senator and Tea Party darling, Ted Cruz?   Cruz, the son of an American citizen mother and foreign father, and who was born outside of the United States, should be a birther’s worst nightmare – or most salacious wet dream – depending on the birther’s personal political agenda.

But wait!  Birthers just defend the printed word of the Constitution as inspired by God and set in stone by James Madison, right?  There is no wiggle room?  Barack Obama is obviously a usurper with his shameless American mother and black Kenyan socialist father.  Those phony birth announcements that his cagey relatives put in the Hawaiian newspapers over fifty years ago in a devious attempt to make it look as though he had been born in the United States so that he could one day grab the power of the presidency didn’t fool anyone.    The evidence of a conspiracy is compelling beyond belief.

Here’s the problem for the batshit birthers, and it’s a doozy.  Barack Obama was born in the United States, and try as they might, they have never been able to prove otherwise.  Legal opinion tends to lean toward his being a “natural born” citizen regardless of where he was born as long as one of his parents was a citizen and he never had to become naturalized – but set that caveat aside and just agree with the whackos’ premise, that being born outside of the United States with one foreign parent disqualifies a person from becoming President.  (George Romney and John McCain were both born in foreign countries with two American parents.  Of course, both were white Republicans, so it never became an issue.)

But Senator Ted Cruz still does not pass the birther test for being a "natural born" citizen.

Ted Cruz was born in Calagry, Alberta, Canada in 1970 and lived there the first four years of his life.  His mother was an American, but his father was a Cuban national who had yet to become a citizen of the United States.


Really big whoops!

Better break out the laughing gas, Dr. Taitz.  You’re going to need it!
