Skip to comments.Bill stems from Obama 'birther' controversy
Posted on 01/12/2010 3:25:13 PM PST by Berlin_Freeper
If Barack Obama wants to run for re-election he would need to produce proof of both his U.S. birth and citizenship to get on the ballot in Arizona, at least under a measure being pushed by a state legislator.
Rep. Judy Burges, R-Skull Valley, is crafting a measure to require anyone running for president or vice president to provide proof to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office that they are legally eligible to seek the office. The U.S. Constitution requires the president - and, by extension, the vice president - to be "a natural born citizen."

No, the bill hasn't even been written yet.
I think the State Eligibility Law is a mistake.
The only likely successor to an Obama term is one of Osama’s sons taking over as Prez of the USA.
Let’s face it, who better to understand terrorism then the son of a terrorist.
It’s a Win Win... and a logical succession to Obama.
The State Law could prevent this and should be avoided.
As of this writing, Nancy Pelosi is working on notorizing the Osama Jr. eligibility doc.
I respectfully disagree. If we truly believe in the Constitution we should be satisfied with the requirements in the Constitution. College transcripts and medical records are not required by the Constitution. Even candidates have a right to privacy. Plus, I would not want to exclude people who have not gone to college from running for President.
No Constitutional justification for it.
The Constitution isn’t a law? I wonder how many Constitutional violations he’s made.
Not according to the definition of "natural born citizen" by Justice Marshall in the Venus decision of 1814, history of qualifications of American Presidents, and the Senate's own SR511.
Then all of those legislatures will just be engaging in a waste of time.
All you would need is one state to demand the long form of the birth certificate and you’d have all the proof you would need. If he didn’t produce it for Arizona, the rest of the states would see what a fraud he was and the jig would be up.
I disagree and I'm certain the Supreme Court does as well. Nonetheless, you didn't answer my question. What method shall the candidate use to prove to the Arizona Secretary of State that his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth?
Would 0b0z0 dare run for reelection? If he does, I have a suggestion:
We find somebody who’s a naturalized American citizen, foreign accent and all that throws his hat into the ring in ‘12.
That application will be thrown out for obvious reasons. A lawsuit demanding all candidates to prove beyond any doubt that they are NBC!! Otherwise, it’s discrimination, plain and simple.
I would love to see the look on 0b0z0’s face, would he run or run away? We could see some of his ghostly records!
Your friendly Ghoster
That would be a way to force the courts.
You mean Schwarzenegger?
Testing ... ping? ;-)
Absolutely. All secretaries of states are required to do their job this time. If things don't add up, that candidate can't be allowed by a secretary of state to be on the ballot in his/her state!
If 0b0z0 doesn't like it, he can go to court.
Best idea I’ve heard in a long time.
Heck, why not/ He was born in HI and has the muscular form replacing the long form!
An indignant naturalized American citizen can use political correctness against the 0b0z0 party.
The Constitution tells professor 0b0z0 two words, created equal," NBC notwithstanding, eh? Just a Ghoster
Reference bump for lib baby sister out thataways ... Rep. Judy Burges, R-Skull Valley - Skull Valley not Judy! ;-)
ST has been saying for months that everyone concerned about 0bama’s eligibility is an idiot and that s/he, ST The Great, is very, very busy in his/her home state, trying to get a law passed that will require candidates to prove their citizenship status.
And now s/he says it’s a waste of time?
I don’t get it.
