Republican broken clock awards - candidate kudos

As far as I'm concerned, Donald Trump "the Chump" has one redeeming quality as a US presidential candidate. In fact, he's justifiably calling out Senator "Ted" Cruz for not proving his qualifications to be President of the United States, because he was born in Canada.

As a matter of fact, a few "persons on the street" interviews, where voters were asked why they support Senator Cruz, received a response about how he's a Constitutional expert! Well, okay, if Cruz is such a Constutitonal expert, why do challenges continue to raise red flags about his Canadian birth? Does Canadian birth disqualify Cruz to run for President? Honestly, it doesn't bother me one bit about where Senator Cruz was born. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, he could've been born on the moon, as long as he's an American citizen. But, the US Constitution may not be so forgiving. Here's the stats: Senator Raphael "Ted" Cruz was born on December 22, 1970,  in Canada. It's certainly odd to read his Wikepedia biography, where there's no name for the location of his birth. This lack of transparency is another reason I believe Senator Cruz is a total hypocrite. Every other Wikepedia biography has a place of birth named in biographies, but I can't find this simple and factual information on Senator Cruz's page.

Therefore, the political broken clock award goes to Donald Trump for raising the "birther" issue as a potential disqualificatoin for the Cruz presidential campaign.

Another broken clock award goes to Governor Chris Christie, for pointing out how inept Florida's Senator Marco Rubio is to be considered for the office of President of the United States. Governor Christie reminded smitten Republican voters about the lack of Rubio's Presidential qualifications. "We're not electing a high school student council president," warned Christie. 

Indeed, Senator Rubio is running for president because he used his Cuban heritage to his advantage in Florida to win elections and gain ethnic support. Nevertheless, Senator Rubio fails whenever he's thrust into the spotlight, given the opportunity to show a "Kennedy-esque" moment. It never happens.

It's unbelievable, but the Republicans are wasting invaluable political time by exposing each others hypocritical positions. Moreover, the Senator Cruz birthplace in Canada might be contrary to the US Constitutional qualfiications to be elected US president.

In my opnion, it's unconcionalbe for Senator Cruz to run for President when the Cosntitutional issue about his birthplace has not been compleely resolved.  

Therefore, Donald Trump "the Chump" deserves credit for raising the Cruz "birther" issue before it reaches the Supreme Court.  

As for Governor Christie's broken clock award, the nation can only say "thank you", because Senator Marco Rubio simply isn't qualified to be President of the United States. 

Republican kudos to Donald Trump and Governor Chris Christie.
