Had Rubio's parents become American citizens BEFORE he was born, then he would be eligible, but they weren't and he's not.
Obama's INELIGIBILITY goes even deeper. In fact, there's no evidence that he's a US citizen at all, let alone one who is "Naturally Born".
ASSUMING, that Obama Sr. (rather than Frank Marshall Davis, or Malcolm X) actually was Obama's biological father, Obama was born a British subject, as Kenya at the time was a British colony.
Additionally, many believe that Obama applied for financial aid as a foreign student when he applied to Occidental College. Obama has spent roughly $1,000,000 in legal efforts to keep all of his records confidential. If Obama was not an American citizen, then he's ineligible. If he was an American citizen, and lied about it in order to become eligible for a scholarship, then he may still be an American citizen who's just a LIAR...
But we already know he's a liar, don't we?

Eligibility to hold the office of president is a constitutional issue, not a political issue, and Rubio's parents weren't even naturalized citizens when he was born, let alone "natural born."
In Minor v. Happersett, the SCOTUS defined a natural born citizen as one who is born on U.S. soil of two citizen parents.
Neither Rubio or Jindal qualify to serve as VEEP or President. For Romney to choose either and for either to run would validate "Obama's claim to legitimacy."

Florida Senator Marco Rubio or Ohio Senator Rob Portman
Having secured enough of the Republican delegates to their forthcoming convention, Mitt Romney has smoothly and effectively locked up the nomination to oppose Barack Obama. It is easy to forget how many candidates he had to defeat in primaries around the nation.More...
