Run Anti-Birther Radio Spot; Birthers Are Back!?
Radio host Michael Medved cut an anti-birther radio spot in the name of conservative powerhouse Townhall.com.
The spot was heard Wednesday during a commercial break on Medved's Salem Radio Network radio show.
Transcript of Medved's Townhall.com radio spot:
This is Michael Medved for Townhall.com,
It looks like the birthers are back: The same misguided or unscrupulous activists who insisted that Barack Obama wasn’t eligible for the presidency because he was secretly born in Kenya, now claim that conservative champions Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz are also all disqualified from the nation’s highest office.
Their attackers say they’re ineligible because their immigrant parents hadn’t yet become naturalized citizens. As to Cruz, born in Canada to an American-born mother and Cuban national father, the activists count him out because only one parent was American.
Actually, all reputable legal scholars agree that one parent who’s a U.S. citizen, OR birth on U.S. soil, qualifies you as a “natural born citizen” under the Constitution. What higher good can be served by disqualifying people from the presidency because their parents hadn’t yet completed their naturalization?
I'm Michael Medved!
The Townhall.com radio spot obviously is based off Medved's recently published anti-birther rant:

I wonder if Medved knows anti-birthers Ann Coulter, Erick Erickson, and Geraldo Rivera disagree with him?
