I saw a brief interview with Cruz on the news tonight where he proudly announced he would not be attending this event because there would be nothing new. Furthermore, he said he felt the president would reach a higher level of Demagoguery than ever and he would only be presenting a "wish list". I found this upsetting because at the very least, despite their differences, our leaders should show at least some level of respect for the office, if not the man. Anybody agree?

Yes, he should. And so should the speaker of the house, especially when he's on camera seated behind the person in the office. A new low for republicans.
If I had been born a few weeks later, would have been born on an Air Force base in England,wouldn't have made me a Brit.! His mother, like mine,born in the U.S.A. He explained the loan to my satisfaction. For the sake of our future, hope he wins!
Birth on a US military base is the same as 'natural born.' That's why McCain's birth was never an issue. However, being born in a hospital or home on foreign land is not the same as 'natural born.' The loan doesn't pass the smell test.
An air force base is considered American soil. Different situation here.
His mother was born in the U.S. and his Father became a U.S. citizen through legal avenues, long before Ted was born. He is a U.S. citizen! Non-issue.
He was not born on American soil, and this is a sticking point with regards to legal issues. Check out the forums to learn more. It's a very confusing and controversial situation with no clear answers.
