’Now, to reply to your implied (or at least inferred) questions:I never really gave a thought to his citizenship.I never got into Obama’s birth controversy, but it was dumb not to provide a certificate right away, except that Obama seems not to need to play by the rules of mere mortals. The courts have ruled on it anyway, so it’s a moot point.
So what do you say? You’ve started asking this silly question about every time you post, so give us your learned opinion.’-Maybe you personally didn’t get into the ‘birther’ controversy, but the other Republicans/Fox “news” viewers sure did, as did the Republican party leadership, Donald Trump, Willard the ChickenHawk, Mitch McConnell, and Rush Limbaugh. It was an ongoing issue for Obama’s entire first term, including on these boards. -The central premise of the birthers was that Obama was born in a foreign country (which wasn’t true anyway) and had a foreign father. Cruz absolutely fits both those criteria. But all the Fox “news” viewers are now silent about the issue.-Having an American passport and providing a birth certificate does NOT make you a natural born citizen. -I’m not disagreeing, but I don’t remember which courts ruled on Obama, and I didn’t hear of any ’experts’’ opinion about Cruz.-And I’ll probably continue posing the question as long as all Fox “news” viewers remain silent.-Just like ‘Do you think our health care system should be improved?’.
