It’s OK to cry: Presidential tears aren’t unusual

President Obama again shed tears for the children of Newtown.

As he did on the morning of the 2012 mass shooting, Obama choked up Tuesday as he mentioned the “first graders” gunned down at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., while again proposing measures designed to combat gun violence in America.

“Every time I think about those kids, it makes me mad,” Obama said at the White House as he announced new executive actions designed to curb gun deaths.

    Yes, I’m sure he is mad. Mad because he hasn’t been able to disarm law abiding criminals. When it comes to tears, he had to work hard to dredge them up. Maybe he stuck a finger in his eye.

    Senator Ted Cruz has a strange logic about what makes a person a natural born citizen, he says that he is a natural born citizen BECAUSE his mother is a natural born citizen of the USA, even though he was born in Canada. But to his way of thinking that would negate all of these illegal immigrants US citizenship for their children born here,because his logic dictates that you are actually a citizen of the country of your parents birth i.e. children born in the United States whose birth parents are natural citizens of Mexico, are also themselves natural born citizens of Mexico, not the US. So according to his way of thinking they don’t have all the benefits coming to them for actual US citizens, because they are actually citizens of Mexico. So if people in our government want to accept his way of thinking, that he is a US citizen just because his mother was born here, then we need to cut off all benefits to the children of illegal immigrants who though born here are really citizens of Mexico, and thus are not entitled to any benefits reserved for actual natural born citizens, as they have no rights to them. Don’t blame the messenger for the message, I’m just reading the US Constitution on qualifications for running for President of the US. And the only way you can be ELIGIBLE to run is if you have natural born citizens for parents and they plus you were actually born within our US borders, there is no other way, YOU MUST BE BORN HERE, you also cannot take the citizenship oath and then run for President, as you were not born here of natural born parents(of the United States).That does not mean that you can’t hold office as a Senator, Congressman, or even Secretary of State, but the position of President and Vice-President calls for a higher standard, that you MUST be born here of parents also born here, period, no if ands or buts.
