GOP Presidential Candidates Questioned On Citizenship

Natural Born CitizenFor the first three years of President Obama’s time in office he has been dogged by conspiracy theorists that claimed he was not an American citizen.  Supposedly, the Hawaiian-born POTUS lied about his place of birth and was actually born in Kenya.  Everyone from conservative wacko, Orly Tate, to media whore, Donald Trump, tried to get the President to reveal two forms of ID so that he could prove his citizenship.  I’ve heard people comment that this has never happened in American history and it was an outrage that he was questioned.  The funny thing is, it’s happened several times in the past – and all to Republicans!  Here are five others who were questioned on their rights as “Natural Born Citizens”.

My Best 5 U.S. Presidents and Baseball (Trivia)

  1. Benjamin Harrison: Threw out the first pitch at a professional ball game on June 6, 1892 in Washington, DC.  The Washington Senators lost to the Boston Red Sox 4-7 in the 11th inning.     

  2. William H. Taft: Really started the Presidential ties with Baseball.  He attended 14 games while in office, including one on 4/19/1909 where the game was held up in the second inning because of the applause that President Taft received by showing up – even though he was late- for the game. Taft was also the first U.S. President to travel to baseball games outside of Washington, going to games in Cincinnati (his home town), Pittsburgh, Chicago, and St. Louis.     

  3. Woodrow Wilson: Wilson was a huge fan of baseball and even played the game while he was in college.  He was the first President of the United States to see a World Series game.  Wilson didn’t believe in getting a free ride.  Although, he had a free ticket to any game (including the World Series), he refused to use them and insisted on paying for his own tickets.     

  4. Warren G. Harding: Possibly the worst U.S. President we ever had, but was an avid fan of the game of Baseball.  Harding played the game, watched the game and even owned a minor league team in Marion, Ohio.  He was the first U.S. President to see a shutout game at Yankee Stadium.     

  5. Richard Nixon: Nixon was probably the most serious baseball fan of all U.S. Presidents.  He is quoted as saying, “I never leave a game before the last pitch.”  Nixon created his own “list” of all-stars in 1972. Many of them are found right here at www.myfivebest.com.
