Arizona official: It's 'possible' Obama won't make ballot
LA Times ^ | 18 May 2012 | Kim Geiger

WASHINGTON -- In a revival of the controversy surrounding President Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate, a state official in Arizona says it’s “possible” that he’ll hold Obama’s name off the Arizona ballot if Hawaii officials don’t send him confirmation that the president was born there.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, a Republican who is exploring a 2014 race for governor, says he waded into the issue after receiving more than 1,200 emails from people requesting that he verify Obama’s birth in Hawaii before placing the president’s name on the 2012 ballot.

“First of all, I’m not playing to the birthers,” Bennett said in a radio interview with KFYI radio host Mike Broomhead. “I’m not a birther. I believe that the president was born in Hawaii -- or at least I hope he was.”

“But my responsibility as Secretary of State is to make sure that the ballots in Arizona are correct and that those people whose names are on the ballots have met the qualifications for the office that they’re seeking,” he said.

Ever since Obama ran for president in 2008, some critics known as “birthers” have suggested, without proof, that he was born in Kenya. The Constitution states that only natural-born citizens can serve as president or vice president.

In an effort to put the issue to rest, the Obama campaign in 2008 released a certificate of live birth from the Hawaii Health Department. Still unsatisfied, Obama’s detractors demanded release of his original birth certificate, which is not considered a public record under Hawaii law.

This isn’t negotiable. It’s time people take a stand based on the law. Nancy Pelosi broke the law when as Speaker she ‘certified’ Obama as eligible, but removed the ‘in accordance with the Constitution of the United States’ paragraph from the certification. She should be in jail for this and someone should legally hold her accountable for the mess she triggered by doing so.

A perfect checkmate to the Obama/Holder legal chest pumping against Arizona. AZ can push back.

Delicious.

EXCUSE ME BS media..but there IS proof..there is a freakin booklet that stated that Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, oh my bad, according to the person who made that booklet it was just an innocent little boo boo..and let’s not forget Obama’s own aunt who said she was witness to Obama being born IN Kenya

First, I hope President Obama is not charged with any crime. I hope he has not committed any crime. Out of respect for the office, and the wish to avoid riots I say this. Also, I hope for the sake of the African American community he has not committed a crime.

I would love to see Pelosi, however, in an orange jump suit.

Does anyone have audio or video of the Obama/Keyes debate in Illinois where Barry, in essence, says he was foreign born, but he isn’t ‘running for President, he is running for the Senate’?

It`s somewhere in the same drawer as the Connecticut SSN card, Selective Service forms, his college records... and of course the original BC.

You're correct of course, but only in theory....our "lawmakers" are all "lawyers".

End of theory.....

Obama went Indonesia in 1981 to visit his mother. Unfortunately, his mother was living in Hawaii and divorcing Lolo Soetoro.

So called “Passporters” believe Obama went to Indonesia to renew his Indonesian passport before he went to Pakistan.

Some officials, known as "democrats" have suggested, without proof, that he was born in Hawaii.

Let's see if we can get this straight once and for all: I don't have to prove to them where he was born (Kenya, Mars, whatever). They have to prove to me that he was born in Hawaii. THEY HAVE TO PROVE IT TO US, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!!!! So far, they have failed to do so.

Are you in your twenties? Don't you realize what happened the last time POTUS was accused of a crime? Great for FR, but bad for the country.

I wish I was in my twenty's.

Which President accused of a crime are you referring?

Billy Jeff? Milhouse? or W?

Either way none of them had STOLEN to the extent of the Indonesian.

In 1998, they tried to hold Bill Clinton accountable for suborning perjury, lying under oath (meaning of is is, etc). There was tremendous disorder for maybe a year or two. Not good for the country in a not good time.

We are far better off to let the election take out the trash. JMHO.

If Mr. Bennett holds firm, he will be the most courageous politician in America. I don’t think he can stand up to the forces against him; could anyone in this liberal climate?

There ksn't,and he won't; Zimmerman will demonstrate the scope or American "justice". It won't be pretty at all; in fact, a failure of the American people and her institutions.
