VIDEO: McCain Says President Obama Will Remain On Arizona Ballot Despite Birther Threats
Talking Points Memo ^ | May 18, 2012 | Nick Martin

Posted on 05/19/2012 9:09:25 AM PDT by Smokeyblue

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said late Friday that President Obama will remain on Arizona’s ballot despite conspiracy theory-fueled threats from the state’s top election official.

“The president of the United States is not going to be taken off the ballot,” McCain told Phoenix television station KPNX.

Arpaio: Appears Hawaii ‘hiding’ Obama birth record

http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/arpaio-looks-like-hawaii-hiding-obama-birth-record/?cat_orig=us

SNIP

Mike Zullo, the head of Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse team investigating Obama’s eligibility, told WND that Hawaii’s refusal to comply “is just another outright, glaring display of stonewalling that the Sheriff’s Office has encountered since Day One conducting this investigation.”

Zullo said “common sense at this point should be everyone’s guide.”

“If this was a non-issue, it wouldn’t be going on eight weeks waiting for the state of Hawaii to verify anything,” he said.

Zullo told WND that Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office investigators have spoken at length with Bennett regarding the president’s birth record. Arpaio’s team announced March 1 that it found probable cause that the document released by the White House last year as Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.

Zullo said his team spoke with Bennett as recently as last week.

“We are in the beginning stages of enlightening him to critical information that the sheriff has acquired during this investigation,” Zullo said.

‘It looks like they’re hiding something’

Arpaio confirmed he’s still investigating Obama’s birth certificate and also the president’s Selective Service registration form, which his team also found probable cause to be a forgery.

It’s really easy McCain, just produce the necessary documentation for him to stay on the ballot, then he will be there...but I guess you don’t want to look stupid for not properly investigating this during your weak presidential campaign.

This dumb-ass Senator was a dumb-ass at the Naval Academy (894 of 899 in his graduating class rank) and has remained a dumb-ass. His “class ranking” puts him down near the bottom among the current crop of RINOs.

Arpaio nor McLame can keep Obama on the list or take him off. It is up to the Arizona Sec. of State, IIRC. Correct me if I am wrong.

EXACTLY!!!

McCain needs to find a cave to crawl into and spend the rest of his miserable life there.

I thought many years ago that he was to be commended for his actions in Viet Nam.

Now, he is an embarassment to himself, his family, to the Navy, and to Arizona as a whole.

Someone get legal control over this man and put him into a home before he does more damage, please. He needs an intervention, IMO.

Bennett is the Secretary of State.

He and every other Sec State of each state have the complete right and the RESPONSIBILITY to make sure that any candidate on their ballot is eligible to be there.

Kudos to Bennett & Arpaio.

I think McClame knows something about what is soon to befall the AZ-SOS.

What convinced the judge in Georgia to decide Obamugabe was “born in Hawaii” without any evidence of such being introduced in court?

Well, if nothing, McCain is consistent. Appease, appease, appease.

He could have been president if he had the courage to take on his D opponent as vigorously as he did his own party. At his age, he will probably not run again, but if he does, I hope the Arizona GOP rank-and-file votes him out.

Of course, as usual, McCain was happy to oblige them.

When McCain was running for President my best friend who lives down the street called me. She was going to pick up McCain for President signs for her yard and wanted to know if I wanted one.
My response....not in this lifetime will you EVER see a McCain for anything sign in my yard. No thanks.

The articls said that Obama’s defense came from an unlikely source. John Mccain.

What is so unlikely about Mccain coming to Obama’s defense ?

Hell !! He came to Obama’s defense when he was running against him.It’s time McCain left politics and took his fat daughter with him.

I haven’t seen any signs that McCain in NOT the dictator of Arizona.

Every conservative office holder in Arizona either gives in to the RINOs or has legal charges filed against him.

I think the AZ Secretary of State is trying to wangle the DNC to sue Arizona to demand that Obama be put on the ballot. This could turn into a catch-22 if the hearing was held *after* the election.

Importantly, no one has the “right” to have their name put on the ballot, unless they fulfill the requirements to do so. And this gets extra interesting in presidential ballots because the people are *not* voting for a presidential candidate, but for representatives in the Electoral College.

So the AZ Secretary of State might be on to something here. If the State of Hawaii refuses to provide that information to Arizona’s satisfaction, then Arizona can block Obama’s name from the ballot.

Thanks for posting. I think most states have laws that prohibit the falsifying of pertinent documents. Some are even felonies. The state attorneys generals should pursue charges based on the obvious questions of validity concerning Obama's birth certificate and draft registration documents, alone.

In Louisiana, we have http://legis.la.gov/lss/lss.asp?doc=508450.

McCain was and is an internationalist. He has no desire to go against his comrades in Bush’s words for ‘ a new world order’. Military service at any level is no guarantee for preserving what the Founding Fathers gave to us. You can see this today in all the promoting of Obama by some in the military.

He sponsored NDAA, pushes globalist agenda, maybe he doesn't have a problem with a foreign born president.

McCain had $9 million leftover from the 2008 election. Instead of helping defeat Obama he donated it to his charity on global issues.

OK..i have never seen this anywhere. But the birther issue did not fly in 2008 and it wont fly now
Rev Wright did not fly in 2008 and it will not fly now
But, if Obama claimed to be a foriegn student when in school and applied for student aid as such and it was granted and now he claims to be natural born.
He committed FELONY FRAUD
That is a high crime and misdemeanor
and is therefore a IMPEACHABLE offense.
So get some of those records UNSEALD
