Marco Rubio's Birther problem

Anybody who has looked at the Birther arguments know that they long ago abandoned the "born in Kenya" arguments for a redefinition of what constitutes a natural born citizen.

Playing off a poor translation of a Swiss Philosopher's (Emerich de Vattel) book, The Law of Nations, they have decided that a natural born citizen is a citizen born on American soil to two citizen parents.

By the Birthers' own arguments, this makes Marco Rubio ineligible for the office of president.

How long before the Birthers throw their own arguments under the bus?

3. Don't expect consistency from birthers

They will have another set of rules for their own

4. The "Birther" Thing is Just Another Racist Dog Whistle

Obama could never be "American" enough for those assholes because he's black.

6. Freeperville had a thread about this

 

The consensus was that he was not a real American and was thus not eligible to be president.

7. All our early Presidents wouldn't have qualified under those standards

since most were born in Great Britain.

8. The constitution made an exception for anybody who was a citizen

 

at the time of ratification. The Birfoons know it.

10. They won't. They'll say Rubio is ineligible too

because birtherism is about racism not party.
