Is the Republican Party now about to show the epitome of hypocrisy? Just over six years ago they raised a hue and cry about President Obama’s citizenship. Even today the “birthers” make their wild claim he was born in Kenya.
Never mind he could have been born on Jupiter and still be a natural-born U.S. citizen because he had an American-born mother regardless of who his father was. Never mind he was born in Honolulu, NOT Kenya, as birthers would have us believe. Never mind, even if he had been born in Kenya, his mother was still a citizen!
Ah, but now comes Sen. Ted Cruz, born in Canada to a U.S.-born mother and a Cuban-born father, and suddenly it’s all right! His mother is a U.S. citizen, so it’s OK. This writer agrees it’s OK. But, where are the suddenly silent birthers?
