    Same as Obama, and McCain.  I'm not having this fight again.  It's stupid.  And there are SO MANY real reasons not to elect Cruz.  Don't waste your time on this BS.

      Obama was born in HAWAII, which is part of the US. End of story. Doesn't matter WHO his parents were, they could both be Martians for all it mattered.

      McCain was born in Panama, which I think was a US commonwealth (not sure) at the time, and his father was military. I assume his birth was duly registered as well.

      Not sure about either of those things with Cruz. His father was NOT a citizen, not sure if his mother lived here long enough either, AND we don't know if his birth was correctly registered.

      There will be records though, which I'm sure will come out when appropriate.

      It's stupid to muddy the waters with questions about Cruz' citizenship, when there are so many good reasons to keep him out of the White House.

      In the event that he actually manages to snag the Republican nomination for the presidency, I'd like to see a campaign focused on his wrong-headed policy positions and just the fact that he is an arrogant jackass.

      Based on those things, I think Hillary could beat him by well over ten points (and probably closer to twenty), without muddying things with dubious questions about his citizenship.
