10. Only one parent must be US citizen.

Like Obama.

Like my dad's 2nd wife, an Italian war bride who married a GI and their kids, born in Italy and Spain, are US citizens from birth.

13. Obama was born in the US, so even if both parents were foreign born he could still be president. nt

9. He is a POS

 

But he is also a naturally born United States Citizen. From the Congressional Research Service,

"The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that 'natural born Citizen' means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship 'at birth' or 'by birth,' including any child born 'in' the United States, the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parents who has met U.S. residency requirements,"


IT may not be desirable but it IS Constitutional.

14. He can run but it's a poke in the eye to the birther people. After all, they agree O's mama was

American so if Cruz is OK to be president, so is Obama,even if born in Kenya.
