We need Freerpers to write Senators and Representatives in their states and ask that similar type legislation be introduce and, hopefully, signed into state law before the 2012 election.

I read the Arizona proposed law and it did not mention BHO anywhere. It mentioned candidates running for POTUS on Arizona ballots. This is a law that applies to anyone running, not just BHO.

Sayin’ it don’t make it so. It is not a question that has been answered. It is a question that has been ridiculed.

The White House seems very testy over a state actually setting up a mechanism that will ask for proof of one of the Constitutional requirements for a president. Although Obama might be the first incumbent president that will be affected it affects all presidential candidate equally and is a fair law...despite their howls of protestation.

"This is a law that applies to anyone running, not just BHO. "

And with Arizona being a border state, it only makes sense.

I hope the law specifies that the birth certificate must be the long-form original reflecting the hospital and doctor’s signature. Hawaii apparently claims their “Certification of Live Birth” abstract, which is all that Obama’s shown and which does not include that info, is good for all legal purposes, and he might try to use that.

If you’ve already proven it, like you claim, then just do it again next time you run.

Actually, under the definition of “Natural Born,” this should require the birth certificates for the candidate and the candidate’s parents. Natural Born requires both parents to be citizens.

No presidential candidate should be required by law to show their birth certificate.

However, the hospital where the candidate was born should be required by law to send a certified copy of the birth certificate to every state house in America before the candidate is placed on the ballot.

Straight from the White House, 0bama has to hide is birth certificate.

They can scoff all they want but all they are saying is they know 0bama does not meet constitutional requirements.

Ummm,ummm,um

>> scoffing ... to show his birth certificate

Imagine “scoffing” at the DMV or DoS agent when applying for your license or passport.

Strange CNN would use the defensive term, “scoffing”.

His response should be “We will be happy to comply with any law adopted by the state legislature.”

If I recall correctly, wasn’t Oklahoma also starting the process to pass a similar law?

All it takes is ONE state. And what’s Zero gonna do? File a lawsuit and claim they have no right to ask for verification? Good luck. His dillatory and obstructionist tactics regarding his long-form birth certificate brought us to this day. And I’ve noticed they’re getting snottier and snottier the more they’re asked about it.

As someone upthread said perfectly — it’ll take you ten minutes to clear this up, Zero.

So, a proper State of the Union, with duly elected officials isn’t allowed to pass legislation relative to basic voting requirements?

“A system of highly centralized government in which one political party or group takes control and grants neither recognition nor tolerance to other political groups.” (”Totalitarianism”, defined).

personally, I was stunned to learn that there was NOT an existing mechanism in any state to verify that candidates for POTUS met the constitutional qualifications.

Ummm... the hospital where I was born no longer exists. So, if I were a presidential candidate, they wouldn’t be able to provide a birthcertificate.

I hope the law specifies that the birth certificate must be the long-form original reflecting the hospital and doctor’s signature.

Ditto that. But I would hope they would also ask for the candidate's PARENTS long-forms as well. If one of your parent's was not a citizen - then you are still not natural born according to Vattel.

You have to provide your parent's birth certificates along with your own to gain entrance into the D.A.R. Nobody in the D.A.R. has her hand on the nuclear button, so a potential POTUS shouldn't get a pass either. JMO.

This is why I like Arizona's wording to provide all documention proving eligibility, not just one measely little abbreviated short form computer generated printout.

Actually, there are statutes in some states allowing just such verification. But not a single state official bothered to do so. Not one.
