    Birthers To Target Marco Rubio



    They may be done with Obama, but the birthers have another target, rising GOP star, Florida Senator Marco Rubio.





    Birther Charles Kerchner has a blog that was once devoted mostly to Obama, but lately, he’s been on a campaign to illustrate that Rubio is not a natural born citizen, and thus, ineligible to enter the White House. Kerchner’s logic is convoluted—something of a trend among the birther set. He claims that Rubio is actually a Cuban citizen, even though Rubio was born on American soil, in Miami, in 1971. But Rubio’s parents were Cubans, who didn’t become US citizens until 1975. (Kerchner went so far as to obtain Rubio’s parents’ naturalization papers from the National Archives to prove his point.) Thus, Kerchner posits, Rubio doesn’t meet the “natural born” requirement set out in the Constitution, because his parents were American citizens. Birthers have tried this argument on Obama as well, because his father was Kenyan. But the argument didn’t have much success then, and it’s not likely to have much success now.


    Kerchner isn’t the the only one in his camp who believes Rubio can’t be president. The queen of the birther movement, Orly Taitz, also agrees. Taitz, who’s spent years in court suing Obama over his eligibility, told the St. Petersburg Times this week, “We need the court to finally adjudicate this issue, who is a natural born citizen.” Rubio, for his part, was nonchalant about becoming the birthers’ newest target. “The price of our freedom and our liberty is that people can go out and spend a lot of time on stuff like this,” he told the paper. “For us, the more important thing is to focus on our job.”

    Yes, on that count your right.

    But, Marko Rubio has been listed high on the V.P. List.

    One half point to you.
