(Raw Story) Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) was called out on Friday for an apparent double standard regarding the presidential eligibility of party colleague Sen. Ted Cruz compared to President Barack Obama in a combative interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews, refusing to support Obama's election as legitimate while promoting Cruz as a viable future candidate..
"He's as eligible as Obama is," Farenthold said of Cruz.
"Well, what does that mean?" a flustered Matthews asked to follow up.

"Obama's president, Ted Cruz can be president," Farenthold answered, which seemed to anger Matthews.
