So we think the silly season in presidential politics should be closed down, early. We believe that Cruz, Haley, Jindal, and Rubio are all eligible to serve as president. Now, this is not the same thing as endorsing any one of them. But, it’s a safe bet than any one of these worthies is capable of being a better president than the one we now have.
If conservatives want to be a majority of the electorate, we need to welcome, not put off, immigrants and children of immigrants. Any other stance will result in our “self-deporting” ourselves as conservatives — from the White House.
Consider this historical question: Could it have been the original intent of the Founders to disqualify themselves from serving as president? It was not until Martin Van Buren, eighth president, that we elected a man who had been born an American citizen. There was actually some silly maneuvering around the accession of Chester Alan Arthur in 1881. Some misguided folks then tried to argue that young Chet had been born in Canada and smuggled across the border into Vermont as an infant.
One thing is clear from a plain and unforced reading of the greatest Constitution ever written: Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) of Michigan and former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (?) of California are both ineligible. Granholm was born in Canada of Canadian parents. Arnold was born in Austria of Austrian parents. For that much, we conservatives can thank God — and the Founders’ wisdom!
