As reported at the Dallas News, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate this weekend. Hmm, it took Barack Obama how long to do the same?
From the TPM, Ted Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. The popular Conservative Republican is most likely paving the way for a 2016 run for President. This is going to open up an interesting debate. Those that went out of their way to back Barack Obama in his birth certificate fight will now oppose Ted Cruz. And those who went against Obama will now defend Cruz. It would appear that if it was good for Obama, it is also good for Cruz.
In an effort to repudiate suggestions that he is ineligible to be president of the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released his birth certificate Sunday to The Dallas Morning News.
The birth certificate confirmed that the Texas Republican was born Dec. 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta. Because he was born to an American mother, Cruz instantly became an American citizen. But he also immediately became a Canadian citizen under the country’s law. Given his dual citizenship, Cruz could not only launch a White House bid, but he could also run for Canadian Parliament. According to legal experts, he’ll remain a citizen of both countries unless he renounces his citizenship.
Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)
Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?
Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.
Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.
The state’s Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send ‘Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.’
Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.
Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.
Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.
Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage.
Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.”
Before being elected governor in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.
As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
The Comedian “Hypocrite” in Chief: Obama Cracks “Racist” Birther Joke, Asks Hawaiian Boy if He Has His Birth Certificate? VIDEO
The Comedian in Chief, or is it the Hypocrite in Chief Barack Obama makes “birther” joke.
After Barack Obama and his insincere minions made it a federal issue when Mitt Romney made what was considered a “birther” joke on the campaign stump, what does Barack Obama do? Why of course he makes a birther joke of his own. As reported by The Hill, at a campaign stop in Orlando, FL Barack Obama cracked a “birther” joke when he asked a young boy who was born in Hawaii, if he had a birth certificate.
The Comedian in Chief keeping the birther meme alive …
The president made a stop at a local sports bar, Gator Dockside, where he made the rounds, speaking to patrons, according to a White House pool report.
At one table, Obama was told by an adult that a young boy at the table was “born in Hawaii.”
“You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?” the president asked, as the table broke into laughter.
Of course the corrupt, leftist main stream media complex and Obams’s minions will defend Obama’s comments as just a joke, making fun of birthers. It gets worse, the AP just plain did not even report that Obama attacked Romney just last month for making a birther joke. Unreal, that America can exist when the media has become nothing more than a propaganda tool for Democrats. This should never be allowed to fly. Not when Barack Obama and his mouth pieces whined incessantly that there was no place in the public or political discourse for “birther” comments. In the video below, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz stated that, “there is nothing funny to suggest that the President of the United States was not born in this country … It’s beneath some one who is running for President of the United States.” Hmm, so if the hypocritical LEFT does not want the story mentioned, why it it Obama that keeps the “birther” meme going? It would see that if its beneath the Office, that should apply to Obama as well.
The Obama team, however, quickly leaped on the remarks, releasing a web video saying that “America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”
“Holding out hope Romney had a vision for the middle class?,” the narrator said in the video. “Think again. Embracing unfounded conspiracy theories, distracting from real issues. America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief.”
As Weasel Zippers reminds us, According to the clowns on MSNBC birther jokes are racist.
Who actually thinks it is appropriate, responsible or even ethical for Obama to cry bloody, political murder when anyone dare reference his birther certificate, yet Obama continues the narrative in order to further distract and demonize others by purposely continuing the controversy?
The Romney “Birther” Joke Continues … LEFT Trots Out Anti-Romney Misspelled Birther Airplane Banner … “America is Better ‘then’ Birtherism”
At least they spelled “birtherism” correctly …
It appears that the Romney “Birther” joke continues on, except this time its not because of Romney’s comment, it is because of the Left’s rebuttal. A funny thing happened on the way to the LEFT trying to call out Romney for his joking “birther” comment, the LEFT made the joke themselves after they misspelled their airplane banner. Oops.

One day after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney quipped that “no one’s ever ever asked to see” his birth certificate, a plane towed a banner over his Ohio rally declaring “America is better” than “birtherism.”
The problem? The banner contained an elementary grammatical error: It used “then” instead of “than.”
With all the issues that are going wrong in the United States, this is what the LEFT flies behind a plane on a banner. I guess America is better than 42 consecutive months over 8%, record number of Americans on food stamps, record federal debt, out of control Obama spending in the $trillions, millions of Americans leaving the work force and an EPIC Failure of Hope & Change was too long.
UPDATE I: According to the Daily Caller, Maeve Reston at the LA Times says MoveOn.org is responsible for this blunder at the Romney-Ryan campaign rally in Powell, Oiho. That makes sense, because they’re super-smart.
Ed Discoll asks, if the LEFT is so concerned about the environment, atmosphere and pollution, why did by engaging in unnecessary aviation?
Obama & Minions So Outraged at Birth Certificate Joke by Romney, Yet Obama Making a “Birther” Joke at 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner Is Perfectly OK
BARACK OBAMA … THE BIRTH OF THE LYING KING …
Team Obama, the MSM and the Left claimed to be so outraged by the comments that Mitt Romney made the following comment at a campaign stop in Michigan, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” That automatically made the Left and the MSM refer to Romney as a ‘birther”. Really, you mean it wasn’t a joke? Suddenly the thin skinned Team Obama folks became morally outraged that how dare Romney make such a comment, joke or no joke.
The disingenuous LEFT even went so far as to call Romney a “birther” even though the Romney had already made it public record that he believed Obama was born in Hawaii. But that did not stop the LEFT and Team Obama from using the joke as a way to try and make it a distraction to the campaign. Anything and everything at all cost to divert from the 8.3% unemployment, record debt and millions of out of work Americans.
DNC Chair, Debbie “Downer” Wasserman Schultz stated that Romney ‘birther’ quip no joke. Really Debbie, you might want to take back those words before you have to eat them. Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on to say that making a joke about a presidents birth certificate, “its beneath some one who is running for President of the United States”. Get a life Debbie … look what Obama said about his own birth certificate in 2011.
Just one question to Team Obama and the unhinged LEFT, how come it is perfectly ok for Barack Obama to make fun of where he was born? He did just that at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner where “The Obamamessiah” played a clip from his birth video, see below.
Obama Releases Birth Video at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner
Hmm, does this make Obama a “birther” as well. How dare he joke about his birth certificate. Obama must be a birther because no one is allowed to reference or joke about the Obamamessiah’s birth certificate. Moonbats, do you see how foolish you look actually trying to make this an issue. Hmm?
