So someone who caucused for Gov. Huckabee in 2008 has chosen not only to support Cruz this time around, but also to put together a coalition of pastors in support of Cruz, yet cannot give an example of when he has been a leader!?!?!?!?!?!? scratch

Huckabee On Cruz: Country Needs A Good Leader Not A Lawyer
January 12, 2016
By Kathy Bolten
Des Moines Register

WASHINGTON, Iowa — Mike Huckabee didn't shy away from an opportunity Tuesday to set himself apart from one of the Republican presidential front-runners.

“Look, Ted’s a great lawyer,” Huckabee said Tuesday about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “But I don’t think American needs a good lawyer right now, it needs a good leader. My question to you would be can you name me what efforts (Cruz) has been a leader in ... He’s been a senator. He’s been a lawyer and a lobbyist … What has Ted Cruz done in his life that prepares him to be president of the United States?”

Huckabee’s comments came during a 12-minute exchange with Joseph Brown, pastor of Marion Avenue Baptist Church in Washington, Iowa. Brown, who started a coalition of Iowa pastors who support Cruz, began the conversation with a question about why the candidate has said Cruz tailors his comments about same-sex marriage to the audiences he addresses.

“He’s saying the same things you are saying,” Brown said.

Huckabee politely disagreed.

Cruz has said “he would leave marriage issues up to the states and therefore would not support a federal marriage amendment,” Huckabee said. “He knows, like good lawyers do, how to say things that sound almost the same as something else.”

During a question-and-answer session with New York donors in December, Politico reported Cruz as saying, “People of New York may well resolve the marriage question differently than the people of Florida or Texas or Ohio. ... That's why we have 50 states — to allow a diversity of views.” The comments were recorded and provided to Politico.

Huckabee supports passage of a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

Huckabee rarely criticizes his Republican rivals by name.

But in front of about 25 people gathered at The Coffee Corner, Huckabee pressed Brown several times to explain when Cruz has been a leader. Brown cited Mojave Memorial Cross, a case Cruz argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. “He fought and won that issue,” Brown said. “He’s stood up for the Second Amendment.”

Replied Huckabee: “Sounds like he’d be a great lawyer ... I’m asking you, what has he done that gives you reason to believe he would be a great executive, which is a very different job than a lawyer.”

Answered Brown, who caucused for Huckabee in 2008: “That’s what I like about you — you’ve been an executive for 10 years.”

After the exchange, Huckabee and Brown shook hands and talked privately for about 5 minutes.

Huckabee said later he didn’t know whether Brown had been swayed. But while many Iowa pastors support Cruz, he said, many continue to support him.

“Some of the most prominent pastors are still with us and a lot of the rank and file people still are,” he said.

This story ran in the Des Moines Register as well as USA Today.

This is good... no mean attacking, just distinguishing... very valid points Huckabee is making.

What are the required qualifications to become a supreme court justice?

This eligibility issue is starting to heat up, as more and more people look into it. There is a poll that finds 25% of Republicans think Cruz is ineligible. Ann Coulter has a new column saying he's ineligible. http://humanevents.com/2016/01/13/were- ... sburg-now/
Quote:
Because Cruz’s citizenship comes from the law, not the Constitution, as late as 1934, he would not have had “any conceivable claim to United States citizenship. For more than a century and a half, no statute was of assistance. Maternal citizenship afforded no benefit” — as the Supreme Court put it in Rogers v. Bellei (1971).

That would make no sense if Cruz were a “natural born citizen” under the Constitution. But as the Bellei Court said: “Persons not born in the United States acquire citizenship by birth only as provided by Acts of Congress.” (There’s an exception for the children of ambassadors, but Cruz wasn’t that.)

So Cruz was born a citizen — under our naturalization laws — but is not a “natural born citizen” — under our Constitution.

I keep reading the arguments in favor of Cruz being a “natural born citizen,” but don’t see any history, any Blackstone Commentaries, any common law or Supreme Court cases.


I read in a comment somewhere that by Cruz's definition of natural-born, Prince Hamzah bin Hussein of Jordan would also be eligible to run for POTUS, because he was born to Queen Noor, who was an American citizen.

Maybe Cruz can get in on Obama's Dream Act. :lol:

Seriously though, Coulter is a Trump supporter, so of course she's jumping in on the Cruz elligibility thing. If she were supporting Cruz she would be proclaiming how the constitution unquestionably makes him a natural born citizen. She's long since sacrificed her credibility for political expediency.

Clearly though, the answer to all this is to elect Huck and let Trump and Cruz continue to play slappy paws in the sand box. :)
