Why Could Romney's Father Run for President If He Was Born in Mexico?

I have wondered for months now why this was not a point of conversation during this Republican debate season. Even with all of the nonsense in Georgia with the Judge issuing a subpeona for President Obama to appear in court to prove he is a natural citizen, no one has questioned Williard Romney's family issues. We must play by the same rules!!!

One of the more dramatic moments in Thursday night's Republican presidential debate was when Mitt Romney said it was "repulsive" of Newt Gingrich to suggest that Romney was the most "anti-immigrant" candidate among the GOP contenders.

"Mr. Speaker, I'm not anti-immigrant. My father was born in Mexico. My wife's father was born in Wales. They came to this country. The idea that I'm anti-immigrant is repulsive," Romney said, before demanding that Gingrich apologize (Gingrich did not do that).

Romney's mention of his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, reminded us that the elder Romney ran for president himself in 1968. And given all the attention that was paid in 2008 to Sen. John McCain's birth in Panama (where his Navy officer father was stationed) and to the never-ending "birther" conspiracy theories about President Obama, it seemed worthwhile to look back again at the issue of why George Romney could run for president if he wasn't born in the U.S.
