Eating Their Own: Top Birther Says Ted Cruz Is Ineligible To Be President
A prominent birther who believes that Barack Obama was born in a scary country filled with black people, now says that Sen. Ted Cruz is ineligible to be President, too.
[su_center_ad]Former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, who now heads the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association — a guild of officers who believe the county sheriff has the authority to defy and arrest federal officials — said in a recent Blog Talk Radio interview that he believes Cruz is ineligible for the presidency, Right Wing Watch reports.
A call came into the show with the caller arguing that the Constitution bars the Canadian-born Cruz from being president.
Mack responded, “That is correct, I try to say that to a lot of people. Ted Cruz cannot run for president of the United States.”
“I like Ted, I’ve met him several times and he’s kind of a friend of mine, but he can’t run for president,” he added..
But Obama’s mother was American, and the same applies to Cruz, thus making them both eligible. In addiction, the President was born in Hawaii.
Cruz previously heaped praise on Mack’s efforts during the armed standoff against the federal government at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Colorado.

During the program, Mack also discussed the president’s birth certificate, and said it was “real easy to determine that that was a fake and a fraud,” and continued to say the people “who helped fabricate all of these things and people who know about” aren’t coming forward because they’re “all fearing for their lives.”
“I know the person who has done this, they’re all fearing for their lives, obviously, but it’s time to come forward,” he decleard. “The more light you shed on this, the less likely you are to be killed or hurt or put away.”
When Tea Partiers descended on Washington with accusations of a fake birth certificate, one thing was missing: Republicans quelling the unfounded accusations.
So, let’s just sit back and enjoy the show while they cannibalize each other.
