Arizona House: Obama Must Show His Birth Certificate for 2012 Ballot Inclusion

If President Obama, or any future presidential candidate wants to be on the ballot in Arizona, they may be required to show their original birth certificate, something Obama has refused to do. The Arizona House passed legislation with the new requirement yesterday.

The bill must continue it’s path to final passage and the governor’s signature, but this idea is already catching on in other states.

State Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross) has introduced a similar measure in Georgia, Florida is working on it, and others are preparing to follow suit.

Predictably, the left wing loonies are screaming birther, racist and every other insult we are so used to hearing when Obama is challenged on this issue.

There are many requirements to be included on a state ballot, and it varies by state. Most require thousands of signatures, filing fees, proper paperwork and forms and various hoops one must jump through to be included on the ballot. Strangely, most of these requirements are not required by the constitution. So it is difficult to understand how anyone could object to a state requiring proof one is constitutionally eligible to become president.

While the matter may force Obama to finally drag out the original certificate that is admittedly under lock-down in a Hawaiian State vault, and which he has been defiantly hiding since becoming President, this measure would also apply to all future presidential candidates.

There are very few restrictions on who can become president with age and place of birth being the main ones. How can Democrats object to proof of constitutional eligibility to be on a ballot? It is quite amusing to hear the same Democrats that are fighting challenges to unconstitutional provisions in the Health Reform bill argue that clearly constitutional requirements are somehow improper.

It would seem that impeachment is the only remedy to remove a president found to be inelegance after election. This issue must be resolved at the beginning.

    I love Arizona and Sheriff Joe. It’s a shame other states don’t have Arizona’s backbone.

  2. Marie Alio says:

    I never did understand why Obama got a pass on this. It does make one wonder. What has happened to our Constitution.

      There is really no provision as to who is supposed to check this. Good on Arizona for saying prove it or you are not on the ballot.

      There are also no provisions for removing a president if found to be born outside of the US. Impeachment would be the only option. And that will not happen with the Democrats in charge – no matter what.

    Remember that Hawai’i gave (at that time) a Certificate of Live Birth for those who show up with a child, no Delivering Doctor’s name (midwife, supposedly), no hospital. So can easily evade the truth of place where child was born.

    A BIRTH Certificate should be required.

    also check the sequential number of the certificate to be sure it fits with the date shown on the cert ificate.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
