    Interesting guy. Not afraid to speak his mind.

    He should make it interesting, but the odds are stacked against him in the Republican party leadership. They're a lot ideologically closer to being democrats than he is.

    Smart guy with some outlier opinions that frankly are not in the mainstream of the electorate. Don't see him having a real chance. If by some turn of events he becomes the nominee, it will be a walk to the presidency for the Democratic Party.

    He doesn't qualify to hold the office of POTUS. He is not a natural born citizen of this country.

    Not that the law matters as far as politicians are concerned anymore.

    Explain please. As far as I have been able to tell, he does qualify as a natural born citizen under the law.

    I don't remember Matt, did you say that Obama was a natural born citizen?

    Cruz's father was born in Cuba. His mother in the US. He, Curz, was born in Canada. He held a dual citizenship, US and Canadian. I do not know what Cuba says about his status, maybe they consider him a Cuban national.
