WorldNet Daily editor Joseph Farah has claimed numerous times that President Obama was not born in the US, even though Obama has released both his short-form and long-form birth certificates, proving he was born in Hawaii.
Farah is now strongly supporting Canadian-born Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for president.
While that might sound hypocritical to most, Farah claims he can do so because the so-called “media elite” ignored his "birther" theory about Obama.
In a recent op-ed, Farah praised sen. Cruz for releasing his birth certificate, while attacking Obama for a "lack of transparency and thin paper trail."
With all this heavy-duty investigative journalism and newfound faux enthusiasm for the Constitution suddenly on display, it’s obvious the No. 1 fear among the elite media is that Ted Cruz might actually run for president.
They fear him not because he was born in Canada. They fear him not because of any concern for the U.S. Constitution. I will even be more generous to the Cruz smear machine than it was to me when I questioned Obama’s eligibility by rejecting the notion it is because the senator from Texas is Hispanic. They fear him because he is a bold, eloquent, charismatic, principled, committed defender of American liberty.
For those who accuse him of grand hypocrisy, Farah responds by stating:
I don’t care because the Constitution was not written and ratified to be applied to some and not others. If no one cared about Obama’s questionable eligibility, despite his shocking lack of transparency and thin paper trail, then they have no business questioning Ted Cruz – who has released his birth certificate, renounced his Canadian citizenship and upheld every provision of the Constitution to the best of his ability throughout his life.
In addition to Farah, RightWingWatch.org notes that Rep. Steve Stockman, another anti-Obama "birther," supports the foreign-born Sen. Cruz.
“One of the things I always questioned was the documentation of the president, whether that was fraudulent,” said Rep. Stockman. “But I don’t question Cruz. Ted came right out and said, ‘Here’s the documentation.'"
