Of course Mathews was completely right about this. Cruz was born in Canada. End of story.

Absolutely. Where does a foreigner like Ted Cruz get off criticizing our country or it's president. If he does not like it here he should either move back to Canada where he came from or go to Cuba where his father came from.

I am not sure why you would direct criticism at Bashir though. At least he works for an American network. There is a foreign owed network called FOX that spends an inordinate amount of time criticizing American and it's leaders. You should your ire at them.

Matthews needs to check the Constitution. Is Senator Cruz running for President? No, he isn't. There are no birth restrictions on Senators. Matthews would know that if he learned to read, and write, instead of just chatter like a magpie. He has a room temperature I Q, and MSNBCs ratings are dropping like wet stones, because they keep those misinformed chatter boxes around to amuse themselves.

Cruz has US citizens for parents. He has no restrictions. He is an American citizen. End of story.......But this is nothing more that the lefty press trying to pick the next Republican presidential hopeful. Sorry, they dont get to choose this time. It will be Rick Perry or Scott Walker.

You are not really one for details are you? Matthews was doing a piece on all of the people who are saying Cruz should run for president. He was merely pointing out that many of these same people were birthers.

We are moving to Texas as soon as we can sell the house, and business. Taking all my tax paying children with us. I swear, even with Illinois raising State taxes more then 100% they did not pay any bills. Just gave it to Union pensions. That is disgusting. Texas unemployment is at 6%

You guys don't comprehend well, do ya? The question is will the so called birthers spew their birtherism if Cruz runs for president?

It is a simple question and we will be watching for the answer ...

Perhaps it is a rhetorical question? LOLL

For petes sake, Hillary started the friggen birther movement.

The entire issue of Barack Obama's eligibility was brought to the fore by lawyers acting on behalf of Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2008.

Specifically, Phil J. Berg, hardly a member of any vast right wing conspiracy, was an ardent supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her candidacy for the presidency.

She is the mother of the birthers, LOL

Why don't you wait until Cruz runs for President unless you are so afraid of him your hair is falling out? Even if he runs the Kenyan has already set the precedent for foreigners being elected. Funny how that works. It is fine for Democrats, but not for anyone else to do the same thing. If he does run he will beat any Democrat by millions. It will look like that recall of Sheriff Joe where they didn't get half as many signatures as they needed to unseat him. So funny.

This is true. The Clintons ARE the original birthers. Yes!! Democrats were the first to question Obama's eligibility. Not the Republicans. not the Tea party. But Democrats. What did the Clintons know?
