Cruz has made a very bad — and very foolish — bet. All in the name of ego. He's already pissed of much of the Repugnican House, and when his grandstanding bullish¡t antics crash and burn in the Senate, his credibility and value as an elected official will be vaporized. Forever.
And his father was not American, and the question of whether his mother lived long enough in the US before he was born and if there is the paperwork to prove it is also an issue. I don't know if the criteria for a senator are the same or more or less stringent than those for president.

I don't know if the criteria for a senator are the same or more or less stringent than those for president.
It's not. He's a legitimately — if unfortunately — elected Senator. The hilarious irony is that Cruz stated that because his mother was a U.S. Citizen, he is, too, despite not having been born in the U.S. Yet the same logic shouldn't hold for President Obama? Dumberer and dumberer.
Gee Marv, that's big of you. The point of the article is that Cruz's citizenship is a matter of serious legal doubt. It says nothing about Obama. I've no doubt that Cruz can work through the complicated paperwork to prove that he's a citizen. My point was pretty straightforward, though: the hypocrisy is more than usually noticeable. The same people who have doubt after doubt after doubt about Obama's citizenship have no doubt at all about Cruz's citizenship, and yet one is crystal clear and the other is legally at issue.
