The thing that makes the girls of the GOP's honey pots moist with love is the "H" behind Cruz's name. That "H" stands for Hispanic. Cruz is half Cuban. A Cuban looks the same as Mexican to old white men. They can't tell if the pool boy is from Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala or wherever, so maybe the gazillion Mexican illegals that WILL BE VOTING in the next election can't either. That is the hope and prayer of the GOP, one last election where they might get their guy in the Whitehouse and hold on to the House of Representatives. Don't be fooled. If they get that, they won't use their power to restore the republic, end Obama Care, limit government or any other useful or patriotic thing. What they will do is loot the place, one last time for the benefit of their special interests.
Back to the Great Brown Hope.
WASHINGTON — Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
“He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.
The circumstances of Cruz’s birth have fueled a simmering debate over his eligibility to run for president. Knowingly or not, dual citizenship is an apparent if inconvenient truth for the tea party firebrand, who shows every sign he’s angling for the White House.Here is the deal Ted: a "natural born citizen" has two, count them two, parents that are citizens of the United States of America when the child (that's you el cretino) is born. Not one parent two. It doesn't matter where the birth takes place. Teddly, you have one parent that is a US citizen, one that is a Cuban citizen and you were born in Canada. That gives you 3 possible nationalities to choose from.
The ability to obtain 3 different legal passports is a wonderful thing. Ted, do it man. You can never tell when you may need those passports to save yourself and your family. I salute you. Get all 3 three, open up bank accounts in tax havens as a Canadian and a Cuban. Build wealth and safety for when this country is gone. You are a US Senator and at the front of the looting line. Cash, prizes and a safe international exit to a warm non-extradition country await. I envy you.
You can't be president though. For that you need two citizen parents. You don't have them. Neither does the guy in there now. I know. I'm not happy about that. He has advanced the Gotterdammerung by 100 or more years. That doesn't mean you get a shot too.
