The way I see it, Ted Cruz was born too "two" US citizens, that would make him a natural born citizen. Vs Obama only having his mother as a citizen so birthplace would need to factor. That's how I see it anyway.

When he was born, his parents were U.S. citizens at the time. He spent more than the minimum amount of years in the country to run for president. By law, he is just as eligible to run as Obama was. Maybe even more. People who think otherwise need to look up the requirements for running for president.

Now, with that said, he may be eligible to run but there's no way I'd want him as my president.

You know, it's funny. I thought people would be more concerned with the fact that he's Cuban.

Obama was born in the US state of Hawaii, granted 2 years after it became a state but it was a state nonetheless. He wasn't born in a different country like Ted Cruz, which is what the debate is.

I already told you. It doesn't matter what country he was born in. He could've been born in North Korea for all I care. It doesn't change the fact that he was born to American parents. By law, he is eligible to run for president.

Yeah that's one interpretation of it. The one that I happen to disagree with at the time.

I'm fine with him running. I don't care how someone got their citizenship as long as they are intelligent in all necessary areas and will actually try to help the country.

I don't care who it is as long they are trustworthy and help change America. If so, they have my vote. I never know how it is in the office against congress, but at least they are trying somehow in someway.

He fits the requirement for citizenship, and I kind of hope he gets the republican nomination, namely because he is so extreme that he will probably push sane moderates the opposite way (kind of like some of Romney's comments).

It sounds odd. Along the lines of finding a caiman in Louisiana marshland, I guess. I'm not really opposed to the thought of a Canadian president, but it's curious.

For those of you who think it should be allowed for a person who wasn't born in the United States consider this. If Arnold ran for President and they let him. Everyone would already know who he is so chances are HIGH that he would get TONS of votes from people who don't do research on candidates and people who don't normally vote would probably come out just to vote for him since hes so well known.

The question isn't whether or not Senator Cruz is an American citizen,he is.It's whether or not we can talk the Canadians into taking him back.

If they won't take back Justin Bieber, I doubt they'd want to take back Ted Cruz.

I'd vote for him. Just to see the confused look on people's faces during the State of the Union. Also to see an unusual amount of government spending the newly formed Skynet branch of government.
