Skip to comments.Arizona Senate passes Obama birther bill after boost from Donald Trump
Posted on 04/13/2011 12:39:01 PM PDT by Smokeyblue
The Arizona Senate approved the so-called birther bill requiring 2012 presidential candidates to prove they were born in the U.S. and are thus eligible to run for president.
The measure, House Bill 2177, is aimed at President Barack Obama and those on the political right who want him to produce a birth certificate proving he was born in Hawaii and not Kenya, where his father if from.
The Arizona Legislature passed the bill 20-8 on a party-line vote in the State Senate with Republicans backing and Democrats opposing.
The measure includes some changes that allow for other documents beside birth certificates to be produced by presidential contenders. It now goes back to the Arizona House of Representatives for another vote. The House previously approved the birther bill without new Senate changes.

Just 49 more to go...
One state at a time. I understand that it only takes 3 states.
Any chance this becomes law and gets signed? I hope OK can be next. If we can get 2 - we may get 2 more.
We need at least one state to require a long from birth certificate of the Pres and VP candidates. Of course, I’m sure that Rats will challenge the requirement in court, but that kinda tips their hand. Why oppose such a measure?
why would anyone vote against this bill? Unless you knew your president was not eligible and you’re a democrat.
Actually, it should only take ONE state.
He’ll have a tough time explaining why he doesn’t bother getting on the ballot in the one state where he is required to show that he is eligible for POTUS.
The bugaboo here is that, not having demanded resolution to the problem early on, time has been made available to generate the best forgery that money can buy.
The Arizona senate is useless. Did they even mention ‘natural born Citizen’ one time in this bill? These are the ass-hats that have taken an oath to protect and defend a Constitution they know nothing about. Pathetic.
I’m with ya. I don’t know why it wasn’t written in the state election law in the 1st place. I think all 50 states should embrace this.
Phil at TRSOF has a great run down of the bill...
The bill is going to allow for other documentation than birth certificates. I wonder what that means? Obama is likely to submit his COLB and his Costco photo ID card and declare victory.
They oppose positive voter ID without “tipping their hand” that they depend on voter fraud to win elections.
That solves everything. A certified, exemplified, self authenticating, COLB short form from the State of Hawaii will be accepted as a prima facie showing.
I’m sure Holder will make it his to priority to have this law overturned — for the benefit of his ‘people’...
So this AZ law is pointless?
Well, I guess Obama ain’t gonna be on the ballot in AZ in 2012.
I got to ask why did the Az Senate change any wording? Now it has to go back to the house!
“...other documents to be produced in place....”
Danger, danger, Will Robinson.
Lawyer poop detected.

“Im sure that Rats will challenge the requirement in court, but that kinda tips their hand. Why oppose such a measure?”
That’s exactly the point. If even one state has a law like this in effect, it forces the issue. Either way, if he and the Dems challenge or not, there is the gigantic question of why, and he’s toast.
You answered your own question.
A presidential contender (with legal standing) needs to sue over the fact that the president’s father, BHO Sr, was not a US citizen at the time of his birth.
One mistake on that forgery and the jig is up, though.
And, there is no way to fit a non-existant LFBC’s serial number between others born at the same time.
49 states? I thought 56 more states? There are 57 states like Heinz 57 has varieties.
Obama said there are 57 states and ALL of TV including FOX says he is a genius and a god. If Obama says it is 57 then it is 57.
ALL of TV thinks he is God.
The U.S. mint employs some VERY talented engravers. I;m sure one of them can help out with the effort — and after his work is complete, well, let’s just say: accidents happen...
Sounds like that is just what the Az Senate just did! I hope the Az house changes it!
“Obama announce kinetic military action against Arizona.”
I would think the political left would want this cleared up too.
I read that info in the link at post 16.
I also don’t see how this law will have any teeth against Obammie’s COLB.
The person will probably be Trump and he will need to fast track it.
Nope. There is probably a grandfather clause in it. Or his current “Certificate of Live Birth” will be considered “adequate.”
No, 56. /s
The measure includes some changes that allow for other documents beside birth certificates to be produced by presidential contenders.
The saving clause that renders the bill useless.
b) a certified birth certificate that includes:
i. the date and place of birth,
ii. the names of the hospital and the attending physician, and
iii. signatures of any witnesses in attendance if applicable.
He could always skip Arizona.
i think it will only take one state. If Obama fails to produce the required certificate for AZ - he is done.
hoping this gets signed into law....
Yes. Right in the beginning. The whole thing seems solid.
Also gives individual citizens of Arizona standing to challenge eligibility, which is what we all wanted, but never really asked for.
What other documents?
Well if he thinks he can win Arizona and wants their electoral votes, he will have to produce something. My guess is this, the CIA is working 24-7 to make the right document for our boy to present to the State of Arizona.
...other documents to be produced in place....?
I’d like to see Texas, Florida, and at least one other key swing vote state follow Arizona’s lead. That would make sure that Obama is eliminated from any possiblity of running for POTUS in 2012.
I will anxiously await a story regarding passage of this bill on tonight’s evening news. (hahahahaha) like that would ever happen.
I don’t think CIA is too fond of the Malicious Moslem after he (and Pelosi) tried to prosecute CIA interrogators and lawyers.
Ohio would be a great one to pass such a bill - along with Michigan or Indiana -
