Marco Rubio is, well, a sleazy, over-hyped, overrated anti-choicer who has no business being elevated to higher office, let alone occupy a seat in Congress. He’s opposed to the DREAM Act, he’s pro-E-Verify (which would require all U.S. employers to use an electronic system to determine worker eligibility), and he’s generally been trying to out-crazy the crazies for some time now.
So how ironic is it that it’s the crazies who are suggesting he’s not a “natural born” citizen and may not be eligible to be any presidential candidate’s running mate? That’s right, he now has joined President Obama as a target of some loony birthers.
All together now: Awwww.
It has become a new talking point of the “birthers,” both left and right, and it’s sparking debate among scholars and experts of the United States Constitution.
The issue is while Rubio was born in Miami, his Cuban-born parents were not American citizens at the time of his birth in 1971. That made him a dual citizen.
Whether or not this is as idiotic as the birth certificate inanity that the president disposed of so eloquently, it’s entertaining to see this particular episode of Republicans Eating Their Own unfold.
