The Republicrats are crowing over the possibility of Marco Rubio being Romney's running-mate. Something is going on. It's just a little bit too much of a "coincidence" for the question of a candidate's "Natural Born Citizen" status to come up in successive elections. Not only that, but the qualifications for Natural Born Citizen status have also evolved. When it was Obama's status that was being scrutinized, he attained his "natural born" citizenship through the citizenship of his mother. Now, since neither of Marco Rubio's parents were citizens, all that is required to be recognized as a Natural Born Citizen is to be born on U.S. soil. If that's the case, then Anwar Al-awlaki, the terrorist that Obama killed in a drone strike, would have been recognized as a Natural Born Citizen. The Founders deliberately used the term "Natural Born Citizen" as a qualification for, not only President, but for Commander in Chief, because, according to their understanding of the term, it would insulate America from foreign influence and intrigues. And the qualification of Natural Born Citizen that the Founders recognized that would insulate America from foreign influence, was the requirement of citizen parents. The evidence is in - today, there are many born here who hold allegience to the country of their parents, rather than to America.
