Last August, Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz promised to renounce his Canadian citizenship before the end of the year. Well, he lied. He is still a dual citizen of the US and Canada.
When asked recently about it, Cruz claimed that his lawyers are still preparing the paperwork. But immigration attorneys say that renouncing Canadian citizenship is fast and easy, and no way would it take this much time unless there is some security or mental health issue. So either Cruz is (again) lying or he is a security or mental health risk. (I would vote for the latter.)
And yet the Tea Party Birther faithful still want Cruz to run for president.
To be honest, I don’t actually care about Cruz’s citizenship. But how hypocritical is it for the same people who have spent years screaming about Obama being unqualified to be president to have no problem with Cruz being a Canadian citizen?
