    Can we please return Cruz to sender (which in this case would be Canada?)

    Cruz— the guy who’s constitutionally NOT eligible to be president of the United States.

    Has Cruz said anything close to as stupid as Harry Reid, Nancy Peolsi, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Barbara Boxer, or a plethora of other Progressive Left Democrats regularly do? I don’t think so.
    It would be hard to beat Hank Johnson’s comment that putting 10,000 more Marines on the island of Guam might cause it to capsize and sink….

    Cruz would have drowned Narcissus to take total control of the reflecting pool.

    I have some personal knowledge of this in that my father’s parents were both American citizens but Grandma always went home to Poland to have her children. The last one got the family caught in WW1and Dad grew up there. It was good luck that Poland won the war against the Bolsheviks in 1920 or I might be someone different and speak Russian, or I might not be at all.
    Yeah, history is just about old dead people.

    Please, please, please may the Republicans nominate Cruz for president in ’16. The result will be the biggest Democratic landslide since Johnson-Goldwater, regardless of who the Democrats nominate.

    I suspect that many in the world would become Bokononists if given the opportunity. Bokononism is founded on the idea that if you believe in “foma” (useful lies) you will be freed of cares and live a happy life. Although it is a religion first revealed by Kurt Vonnegut in CAT’S CRADLE, I think more and more it is suitable to this era of history.
    If you were a Bokononist, you would see that Senator Cruz is obviously a “stuppa” (fogbound child) with the “duffle” (destiny) of many in his power. His Zah-mah-ki-bo (ultimate destiny), I think, is to cause a “pool-pah” (wrath of God, or s—- storm). I suspect that Pat Oliphant is himself a Bokononist and has snuck a few of his beliefs into this cartoon.

    I’m rather partial to Palin/Cruz in 2016.
    Let the party put their votes where their mouth is.

    Sharuniboy: You are correct, except for cases like Rupert Murdock, where a $20 million book deal bribe to Newt Gingrich provided citizenship and thus the right to buy Fox.

    We LOOVVEE Cruz. Or at least we would if the Republicans had anyone at all who could beat any of 5-10 Democrats for the presidency. Not only don’t the moderate Republicans have a candidate who has a chance, since Christie crashed and burned, but the Tea Party has enough clout to make Cruz either the Republican nominee or run him as a third party candidate, insuring a Democratic presidency for the next eight years. Since the country is becoming more blue daily, that could be enough to insure that we will never have another Republican President. Yup, we’re terrified.

    Actually if a person is born to a mother who is an American citizen, they are automatically American citizens. Fathers don’t matter under the law- I don’t know why but possibly because it was written before DNA testing. It wouldn’t matter if they were born in Canada, Hawaii, or Kenya. I’m an Air Force brat and grew up with lots of kids who were born in foreign hospitals. They have citizenship automatically.
