For Cruz and Rubio

Since this "natural born citizen" nonsense has popped up again, I have decided to provide links to all the essays I wrote about the "birther" arguments about Obama. Since they apply to the cases of Rubio and Cruz every bit as well, I figure it is time to bring them back:

Don't worry, I am not going to start filling the blog with nothing but lists of links to old essays, but in this case, I have said so much, there is not much point in repeating myself.

* These links still point to the Townhall blog links and thus do not work. I hope to change them over the next few days as I copy these old essays to this blog, but for now they do not work properly.
