consultants are sandburs

I need help from a "birther" about what Constitution Art. II means about only "a natural born Citizen," can serve as President.

What about Ted Cruz? Born in Canada; ostensibly his mother was a citizen, but proof that far back, of her actual citizenship status at the time of birth is not clear to me. The birth certificate asserts her citizenship, but might that not at the time have been an uncaught misrepresentation?

His father was not a citizen when Cruz was born in Canada.

Help me, birthers, please. Submit a comment suggesting why Cruz is qualified, Constitutionally, to serve. That phrase, "natural born Citizen" has to refer to the common law in effect at the time the wording was chosen, doesn't it?

So, help me on that common law, 1789 question.
