Skip to comments.Game-changer! Arizona to pass 2012 eligibility law

It could be a game-changer.
A plan in Arizona to require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility to occupy the Oval Office is approaching critical mass, even though it has just been introduced.
The proposal from state Rep. Judy Burges, who carried a similar plan that fell short last year only because of political maneuvering, was introduced yesterday with 16 members of the state Senate as co-sponsors.
It needs only 16 votes in the Senate to pass.
In the House, there are 25 co-sponsors, with the need for only 31 votes for passage, and Burges told WND that there were several chamber members who confirmed they support the plan and will vote for it, but simply didn't wish to be listed as co-sponsors.

How about making it retroactive.
Every state should pass such a law...but it will only take one in 57 to keep this clown out of office next election.
Its a start. I’d love to see Florida, New York, Texas, do the same thing.
Puts O in a legal box. Produce, or fight it, and if he fights it, no more than 30% of voters nationwide would believe it was for “the principle.”
Don't mess with
Every state needs this.
This needs to happen in a swing state: Missouri, Colorado, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, NM, FL, or Ohio. Then it’s a game changer.
Obama will write off AZ’s electoral votes before he coughs up the truth about his birth certificate, whatever that is.
It will, of course, be challenged in the courts. But since states control who appear on their ballots then there is no reason why the law shouldn’t be upheld.
is this really gonna pass this time? Article says they don’t have the numbers in the house yet? I got my hopes up last time.
If this law is going to be effective, it will have to define what a Natural born citizen is so that the law is clear on what has to be proven by US presidential candidates to get on the ballot in Arizona and what counts as sufficient evidence for that purpose. Otherwise the liberal courts will just redefine what an NBC is and use judicial activism to put ineligible candidates on the ballot anyway. Does anyone know if this proposed bill clearly defines what Arizona considers an NBC to be?
But we need undocumented presidents to do the job American presidents won’t do!
It wouldn’t matter if this passed in a 3EV State. If Bambi writes off a State (any State) that passes such a law, he is exposing himself as a fraud to the entire country.
In the House, there are 25 co-sponsors, with the need for only 31 votes for passage, and Burges told WND that there were several chamber members who confirmed they support the plan and will vote for it, but simply didn’t wish to be listed as co-sponsors.
As soon as one state passes a presidential eligibility ballot bill, other states will do the same. It will be monkey see monkey do. :-)
"Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Arizona:
Section 1. Title 16, chapter 4, article 6, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended by adding section 16-507.01, to read:
START_STATUTE16-507.01. Presidential candidates; affidavit of qualifications
A. The national political party committee for a candidate for president for a party that is entitled to continued representation on the ballot shall provide to the secretary of state written notice of that political party's nomination of its candidates for president and vice‑president. Within ten days after submittal of the names of the candidates, the national political party committee shall submit an affidavit of the presidential candidate in which the presidential candidate states the candidate's citizenship and age and shall append to the affidavit documents that prove that the candidate is a natural born citizen, prove the candidate's age and prove that the candidate meets the residency requirements for President of the United States as prescribed in article II, section 1, Constitution of the United States.
B. The affidavit prescribed in subsection A shall include references to and attachment of all of the following, which shall be sworn to under penalty of perjury:
1. An original long form birth certificate that includes the date and place of birth, the names of the hospital and the attending physician and signatures of the witnesses in attendance.
2. A sworn statement attesting that the candidate has not held dual or multiple citizenship and that the candidate's allegiance is solely to the United States of America.
3. A sworn statement or form that identifies the candidate's places of residence in the United States for the preceding fourteen years.
C. If both the candidate and the national political party committee for that candidate fail to submit and swear to the documents prescribed in this section, the secretary of state shall not place that presidential candidate's name on the ballot in this state. END_STATUTE
Arizona State Legislature.
I suspect officials from Langely will be headed to Az Supreme Court members...to massage the opinions lol.
Oooooooooh TNTNTNTNT dud.
Hello Mr. Zot. If you are lurking like Obots do, Obama ain’t got a snow ball in hell’s chance if this bill is in effect for 2012 to get on the AZ presidential ballot. It sure looks certain that it will pass into law.
Nada, zippo, goodbye, it’s over, see yooooo, 1 and done for Obama.
Langley better be running around all over the country then ‘massaging’ judges opinions. There will be more.
Way to go, Arizona!!!
The other states submitting similar eligibility bills need to pay attention to this. They need to require more than a long form b.c. They need the candidate to prove they meet the actual requirement of NBC (& age and residency).
Obama has made a mockery of our constitution. He’s about to get a big slap in the face. Some state will pass this. And if they don’t, they are going to see thousands of law suits.
Maybe Obama will Rahm-ify it by timing the challenges such that his name will appear on the ballots when they are printed? If so, more states are needed. Obama's projected duplicity would show when more than one state's ballot printing were to become Rahm-ified in this manner.
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And if they do, they are going to see law suits from Holer and company just like AZ SB-1070.
Can you imagine this... “Obama refuses to campaign in Arizona because of Arizona law” OMG the political fallout would be MASSIVE.
Yes, but what would the angle be? (something with 14A, imaginably... ??)
Possibly, but you know they will get it wrong.
