Ted Cruz is outstanding. Unfortunately, he will likely remain in the Senate (unless a Republican can win the White House and appoint him to the Supreme Court) because his birth in Canada precludes him from being POTUS. I have some reservations about Sen. Graham. However, we cannot sacrafice safe GOP seats to make a point. That was done last year in Indiana, which now has a newly minted Democratic Senator (in a state Romney carried comfortably). Republicans need to be careful not to nominate sure losers in the General Election (Akin, O'Donnel, Angle, Murdoch). Perhaps if Nikki Haley ran for Graham's Senate seat? If not, Graham is better than any Democrat. We can't have Dem Senators in red states. There are few GOP Senators in blue states.

I find it difficult to trust Nikki Haley.

Actually, Ted is a U.S. citizen. His mother is a U.S. citizen, ergo he is a U.S. citizen. Place of birth doesn't invalidate this. My ex-son-in-law was born in Morocco to American parent, and he is a U.S. citizen. Until he was 18 he actually had dual citizenship. At 18 he declared himself to be solely a U.S. citizen.

I asked the president, can you kill an American on American soil, it should have been an easy answer. It’s an easy question. It should have been a resounding, an unequivocal, “No.” The president’s response? He hasn’t killed anyone yet. -- Rand Paul

I do not believe that question deserves an answer. -- Lindsey Graham

Mr. Holder’s letter answers Mr. Rand’s question, “Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill Americans not engaged in combat on U.S. soil. The answer to that question is 'no.’”--
