Wait, what? Birtherism as a tool that the left is wielding against the right? Hold on a minute. The left has dismissed the birthers as cranks and fools, now they ARE birthers? What’s going on.
It’s just another way that the left is kicking our butts tactically. WE LET THEM WIN, ALL THE TIME. Because we are foolish. Figure it out, and just stop it.
John Hayward explains and in his last paragraph nails the strategy, and makes you understand why it is another in a long list of small victories of the left over the right. They bat us around like the cat playing with the mouse. It’s sport for them.
To recap: Ted Cruz was born in Canada, to an American mother. He was a US Citizen at birth, no naturalization process required – US law says so. He was also a Canadian citizen at birth. The two countries have similar laws, and Ted Cruz ended up a dual citizen, at birth.
- You’re a citizen no matter where you are born if one of your parents is a citizen and lived in the country for 5 years.
- You’re a citizen based on where you were born.
We know this – if a pregnant American is traveling, and has her baby while in Mozambique, that kid is American. (So yes, even if Obama’s mom had the baby in Kenya, he’s a citizen). That’s part 1. Pregnant Mexican citizens cross the border so that the baby is born in America and thus and American. That’s part 2.
So yes, Ted Cruz has been an American since birth. It’s a non-troversy.
The left has started “just asking questions” and poking around and doing their deceptive “investigations” which are simply attempts to wound good Conservative politicians, issues, or groups.
This is not something that the left cares about. They know it’s an irrelevancy. They know it disappears tomorrow.
But they trot is out, hoping that the right will form a circular firing squad and that they can just sit back and watch us fight amongst ourselves as they enact some other bit of progressive economic or cultural destruction.
It’s working. They have actually succeeded in getting the Paul campaign sniping at the Cruz campaign. You know what that hurts? The defund Obamacare movement. Because the staffers will be angry at each other rather than working together.
The Washington Examiner reports it, Drudge highlights it, and we spend time talking about it, fighting over it, and now we have to divide into Paul camps versus Cruz camps? Really? Victory to the left. Well done. That was easy.
We have GOT to stop being so freaking stupid. Seriously.
