On March 27, 2015, I appeared in studio on Washington’s Drive at Five hosted by Larry O’Connor on WMAL 630 in D.C.

We touched on two completely unrelated, but interesting, subjects: Obama’s plan to make an end run around Congress to the U.N. Security Council to sign a nuke deal with Iran, and claims that Ted Cruz is not eligible to be President because he was born in Canada.

For background on why Cruz is eligible, you can read my September 3, 2013 post, natural born Citizens: Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz. But it’s 11,102 words, so it might be easier for you to listen to this audio.

UPDATE 1-14-2016 — Towards the end of this segment, at the 7:30 mark, I respond in the affirmative to a question about whether Obama would have been a natural born Citizen because his mother was a Citizen. I was wrong. Ilya Shapiro has the explanation why Cruz and Obama were not in the same position:

So why all the brouhaha about where Obama was born, given that there’s no dispute that his mother, Ann Dunham, was a citizen? Because his mother was 18 when she gave birth to the future president in 1961 and so couldn’t have met the 5-year-post-age-14 residency requirement. Had Obama been born a year later, it wouldn’t have mattered whether that birth took place in Hawaii, Kenya, Indonesia, or anywhere else. (For those born since 1986, by the way, the single citizen parent must have only resided here for five years, at least two of which must be after the age of 14.)
