Though I’ve mentioned it here on this site before — and many times on my radio program — it bears repeating, especially in light of the fact that some pretty sharp folks out there still don’t get what a natural born citizen is.
It galls me to hear TV idjits like Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, and O’Bloviator say time and again that Rubio should be on the ’12 ticket for the White House. Are they ignorant? Or are they being willfully deceitful?
Folks are all gaga over Marco Rubio, my US Senator (yes, I voted for him). And granted, he seems — for all appearances — to have the tools and mindset that we’re looking for in Washington. But as I’ve reminded folks time and again, Rubio is NOT eligible to be Prez under the Constitutional requirements any more than Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal or Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH) are.
Folks here in Florida who know Rubio have mixed feelings about him and the “famiglia” that surrounds, sequesters, and protects him. Rubio is not every Floridian’s golden boy. They know too much about him.
Cdr. Charles Kerchner has spent the past three to four years studying the NBC issue, has even brought forward a lawsuit challenging Obama, which the courts refused to hear on its merits, as all the courts have done with the dozens of other eligibility lawsuits. Cdr. Kerchner has written reams of copy about it, debated paid Obamabots (oh yes, they’re paid to troll on behalf of the slitherer-in-chief) and has placed several full page informational ads in the Washington Times, often paid from his own resources.
I consider him and attorney Mario Apuzzo to be experts on the subject.
Also, consider this — Rubio will not respond to repeated questions about his heritage. Why not? According to Cdr. Kerchner, until his first blog post on 22 May 2011 of the facts as to when his parents became U.S. citizens, Senator Marco Rubio has been evasive and not forthcoming about his exact citizenship status upon his birth in the United States in May 1971. Phone calls, emails, and letters to his office by various volunteers over the last year have gone unanswered on the question of whether his parents (who were immigrants from Cuba) had become naturalized citizens of the USA by the time of Marco’s birth in the USA.
So, with that, here’s Cdr. Kerchner’s considered opinion and history of Marco Rubio. You might not like it, but facts are facts. And he’s got the documentation to back it up. Putting his money where his mouth is, so to speak.
Marco Rubio is a Cuban Citizen. Senator Marco Rubio’s Lack of Natural Born Citizenship Update 27 May 2011: See PDF copy of the Sep 1975 Petition for Naturalization for Mario Rubio, father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, more than 4 years before his father elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounce his Cuban citizenship.
As a dual-citizen at birth Marco Rubio does not have sole allegiance to the United States. He is still a Cuban Citizen under U.S. law, Cuban law, and international law.
Marco Rubio also claims his parents came to the U.S. to escape the communist takeover by Fidel Castro. Marco’s parents came to the U.S. in May 1956. Castro and the communists did not take over Cuba until 1959. His parents came here for a better job as a bartender in the Miami FL hotels via connections he made by those owners having casinos and hotels in Cuba.
Marco Rubio has been embellishing his early life story to win the sympathy of the real Cuban refugees that did come to the USA to escape Castro in much the same way some politicians have embellished their military records and similar to the way Obama embellished his life story with his Selma AL comments.
Marco Rubio is not a natural born Citizen of the United States having sole allegiance to only the USA at birth. Marco is to this day a Citizen of Cuba.

The Constitution matters. The truth matters. The RNC and DNC have got to stop putting up ineligible candidates for Pres and VP.
95%+ of the American Citizens are natural born Citizens. It is from them that our Constitution says we must choose our President and commander of the military and the VP.
