Mr Thomas you are confusing conservatives with neocons.... AGAIN!!! Rubio is not only a neocon who voted for the NDAA, he is ineligible to be President because he's NOT a 'natural born citizen', as has been pointed out several times already in comments. The only thing 'Reaganesque' about Rubio is that he wants amnesty for the illegals. Does the GOP want to lose again in 2016??? Wake up! No RINOs! NO neocons!

That does not make him a Natural Born Citizen. To be considered a Natural Born Citizen, both parents must be US citizens when a child is born to pass Natural Born Citizen status to the child. This is why Obama is not eligible. His father was a British Citizen when he born, Barack Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen of the US for that reason. By British Natural Law, he received the citizenship of his father, regardless of where he was born, forever preventing him from Natural Born US Citizenship status.

That isn't what the US Constitution or statute says. It is best to to follow it -unlike libs
The language is pretty clear and understandable.
Born in the US- citizen. Single or both parents citizens doesn't matter.
That only matters if you were born outside US. Both parents citizens- citizen
One parent is a citizen and married- has some residency requirement for the parent who is a citizen-i.e. must have been physically present in US for 5 years prior to birth with at least 2 of those after 14'th birthday.
Gets a bit trickier if born out of wedlock and out of the country-I'll let you look it up

Conservatives have been dreaming that a political reincarnation of Ronald Reagan would lead them to an electoral promised land. I never put my faith in such a possibility, because the past is a dangerous place in which to live. Reagan never lived in the past, though he learned from it.

Yet among the contemporary political figures that closely represent the substance and style that made Ronald Reagan who he was is Senator Marco Rubio, Florida Republican.

At a fundraising event for Iowa Governor Terry Branstad last Saturday, Rubio touched all the Reagan bases and focused on solutions, not just...
