This is the winning approach to the issue. If adopted in even a handful of states, it would effectively force Obama and all other candidates to prove their constitutional eligibility before they get on the ballot. Best of all, the various legal doctrines that have frustrated federal court challenges do not apply in state court.
That's exactly right, it will do the job and do it for anyone, whether it's Obama or the next candidate to come down the pike.
But, don't expect the ones who are of the "Obama Derangement Syndrome" to even support this kind of state law, as what I've heard directly from a few of them -- is that this is a "diversion" from their efforts to force Obama to show his birth certificate and that it's a Democrat trick to get them "off track" of what they are doing.
No..., really..., I've basically had a few tell me that, along with the fact that when I've proposed this very thing, that I was from the DU, sent over here to "sidetrack" those who want to get rid of Obama.
There's a lot of opposition to this kind of thing (i.e., a state law) -- or, at least, there has been in the past. I don't know if many of the Obama Derangement Syndrome people are still opposing it like they were right after the election... when I was proposing it.
If such laws were enacted in even a handful of states, it would compel compliance, or at least a great deal of litigation and scrutiny. No Presidential candidate could afford to be not on the ballot in four or five states as it would lead to great damage to the state parties and candidates in the affected states.
