I, and many others in here would have loved to be able to vote for Herman Cain. Remember him? He was a genuine black candidate. Unfortunately for him, and our country ... he was a "conservative" and not a liberal.
I mightily disagree with you on this:
Obama won the second time because you ran a Mormon and a dipstick whose own mother is ashamed of his politics.
I hate to admit it, but I think that I am about ready to join the tinfoil hat people. ... I can't seem to stop the voices in my head that tell me "The fix is in."
It just doesn't seem to matter what "we the people" want, vote for, or even think these days, I fear it is all a dreadful fait accompli!American By Choice ~ 1980

Helpfully, the Congressional Research Service gathered all of the information relevant to Cruz's case a few years ago, at the height (nadir?) of Obama birtherism. In short, the Constitution says that the president must be a natural-born citizen. "The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that 'natural born Citizen' means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship 'at birth' or 'by birth,' including any child born 'in' the United States, the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parents who has met U.S. residency requirements," the CRS's Jack Maskell wrote. So in short: Cruz is a citizen; Cruz is not naturalized; therefore Cruz is a natural-born citizen, and in any case his mother is a citizen.

It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

Gum-snapping doofus. While Palin had some deer-in-the-headlights moments very early on, what doomed her wasn't her gum-snapping. What doomed her was the lies spread by your MSM. Palin has since grown into being a very viable conservative voice that STILL scares the shit out of you libs. Uncheck.
Groundswell in liberal ranks to elect a half-black president. Check. So many people swayed by so many lies. Amazing, isn't it?
Mormon. Romney's religion had virtually zero impact on the election results. Uncheck.
Dipstick = Ryan (presumably). First I've heard about Ryan's mother being ashamed of his politics. Until you can present some sort of viable information on this, I'm calling Uncheck.
60% of your post is bullshit. Oh, excuse me -- let's call that Uncheck.U.S. Army, Retired
