Over at Hot Air (well named, by the way…) there’s a poll asking who you’d like to see Romney nominate as his Veep. (Hat tip to Thirdwavedave for calling my attention to it because I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise.  I stopped reading the Republican establishment-leaning Hot Air a long time ago).

The top two “winnahs” are both ineligible per Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution.

People… are we really THAT uninformed?  Or is it just the majority of Hot Air readers?

Here’s the poll result.  I’ve added a few of comments from the more astute HA readers.  It appears that Obama isn’t the only one tearing up, shredding, lighting afire, and ignoring the Constitution. Woe is us…

After a long run at the top, Marco Rubio has been overtaken by Bobby Jindal as Hot Air’s pick for vice president. Allen West came in third, followed by Paul Ryan and Condoleezza Rice. Over 2300 votes were cast:

“I agree that the Constitution doesn’t define “natural born citizen”. It may go to court, but his parents were here legally and he was born here. Unless you have something more concrete than “it’s against the Constitution”, you’ve got nothing.”

They were here legally, but not citizens. That was good enough for Chester Arthur to hide and destroy all of his documentation (his father was Britihs when he was born).

Yes, this does need to be resolved by a court, but at a time when our Constitution lies in tatters and we are faced with the task of not just ejecting an America-hating traitor and his junta from the WHite House but repairing the extensive damage that he has done (and our cowardly GOP has, to a great extent, allowed without so much as a peep) one would think that it would be best to not skate the edge of Constitutionality in this election – certainly not for the VP position. That people feel so strongly (if this poll and subsequent comments are to be believed) that they need one individual (who’s nice and competent and all but not America’s greatest political genius or anything even close) whose Consitutional eligibility is, at best, questionable, shows a serious misunderstanding by people of the shape America is in and what it will take to repair this nation. This attitude does not bode well for America.

But, like I said, it’s not just Jindal (who I can accept only by his politics with no problem whatsoever, if that was all there was to the Presidency and VP) but that whole list that looks totally insane.

to idiots that voted for jindal and rubio…why did rohrabacher and conyers try to change eligibility [8 attempts from 2003 to 2007]…[from birtherthinktank]…
4. Sept. 15, 2004, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., brought HJR 104, “to make eligible for the office of president a person who is not a natural born citizen of the United States but has been a United States citizen for at least 20 years.”

5. Jan. 4, 2005, Conyers, D-Mich., HJR2, the same as Rohrabacher’s.
