Joe Farah, who runs the conspiracy/birther website WorldNetDaily, has no problem with Ted Cruz running for president, even though he previously has said that one must be born on U.S. soil to be president. The fact is that both Cruz and Obama are American citizens by virtue of the fact that their mothers were American. Even if Obama had been born in Kenya he’d still qualify to be president. But that doesn’t stop the double standard expressed by Farah.

Farah explains that because the “media elite” quashed his conspiracy theory that President Obama is ineligible to be president because he was born in Kenya to an American mother and a Kenyan father, it doesn’t matter that Cruz was born abroad.

Of course, the main difference is that Cruz was actually born in Canada — to an American mother and Cuban father — while Obama was born in the United States.

While Farah has made a career out of insisting that the Constitution requires the president to be born on U.S. soil regardless of the citizenship of his or her parents, apparently this rule doesn’t apply to Tea Party heroes like Ted Cruz…and it’s all the media’s fault.
