White House aides are scoffing at a move in the Arizona legislature to force President Obama to show his birth certificate to get on the state's ballot in 2012 for his likely re-election battle.

Well, THAT was unexpected. ;)
“scoffing” from the White House, masters of mockery
wil it work to stifle the questions? How dumb and timid are people, anyway?
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.
“This is a question that has been answered exhaustively,”
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 lady doth protest too much.”
The SOB knows he is a fraud. I hope AZ gets this passed ASAP and other states follow.
Pass the Law, and they won’t be scoffing anymore.
.... see how they respond if Texas does the same
wouldn’t it be great if a whole lot of states decided to do this to prevent the interlopers from shucking and jiving their way into office with the media’s help?
Obama-commie is nothing but a thug.
Take you two minutes to end this Barry. Why doncha?
I think they’re exhausted from not answering the question.
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.
“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.”
Funny how their only defense is to attack those who seek to have candidates be properly vetted as “birthers”.
Why in the world would they be upset? Just follow the law and you will appear on the ballot.So easy even an idiot can do it!
he is an Obustard
What’s the problem Bammy?
If you’ve already proven it, like you claim, then just do it again next time you run.
...or did you really prove it? Hmmmm?
What are they gonna do if dozens of states follow suit?................
He can’t ignore it any more.
Every state with many electoral votes needs to do this!
Scoff and be damned. Just slap that $10 certificate down in the middle of the table and tell us all to go eff ourselves. That’s what *I’d* do. Why doesn’t he?
So easy even an GIBBS can do it!..............
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.
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.
...And Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Californ .... ummm okay, probably not there, but enough states to make a serious dent in the electoral numbers!
Scoff all you want. but PRODUCE THE D@@@ bC.

>> 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”.
Contemptuous or ironic in manner or wit: derisive, jeering, mocking, sarcastic, satiric, satirical, sneering.
Someone needs to tell them that it’s not just Obama, it is for ANY future candidates. It’s not always all about you Barry.
His response should be “We will be happy to comply with any law adopted by the state legislature.”
Funny that it isnt, huh.
That is what is needed!
Certainly a helping tool to prevent a Koranic caused catastrophe from being aided by America’s White House.
My thought exactly. Holy crap that’d be cool!
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.
But, he’s so vain, he probably thinks the law is about him...
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).
So anyone still believe that he will release his BC anytime soon to discredit the birthers or can we put that theory to sleep yet?
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.
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.
This is a question that has been answered exhaustively,
Sayin it dont make it so. It is not a question that has been answered.
It’s the question that may ultimately start the shooting war.
