What am I missing here? Over the past six years we have listened to birthed after birther tell us that President Obama is ineligible to be president because he was born in Kenya, (despite evidence to the contrary) so please help a dumb ole country boy like myself, HOW is Ted Cruz elligible to run and he was born in Canada? I'm missing something here.

"Natural born citizen" simply is not defined in the Constitution. Most legal experts define it as having citizenship upon birth, which one does if at least one parent is a citizen at the time, even if born abroad. Obama's cool. Cruz is cool. And you'll remember, even McCain's citizenship was challenged.

But until an amendment is created or a Supreme Court ruling, the definition is still open to question.

Frankly, the whole "natural born" thing just seems a bit too xenophobic to me. As long as a person is a citizen, I don't really care.
