US Constitution Article I section 4
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President
US Constitution Article II section 1
On Friday Arizona became the first state to pass a so called Birther Bill.. this law would require any person asking to be placed on the ballot in Arizona to produce a birth certificate that includes the name of the hospital and the attending physician. If the Certificate isn't available the candidate can produce a combination of other documents as verification of eligibility,
Is this law directed at Barack Obama who so far has been unable or unwilling to to provide the type verification Arizona now requires? Yep it probably is,
That said, The requirement aren't that much different than those required to get a drivers license in most states. In fact under the new laws in Florida, it requires more proof to get an existing Drives License renewed than Arizona is requiring to run for the most important job in the word.
Arizona is not alone, other states with similar pending bills include: Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Connecticut, Indiana, Nebraska, Tennessee, Montana, Georgia and Maine. Now that Arizona has passed the law, I expect others will also. If nothing else these laws will prevent future post election arguments, bickering and lawsuits about a sitting president's right to live at the White House.
There will undoubtedly be court challenges to the new laws. For some reason, not producing the documentation Arizona's now requiring has been a focus of the Obama Administration. The Constitution is clear, and there is nothing in the Arizona law that undermines the ability of an eligible candidate to run for the office,
Of course the Mainstream Media is deriding the law instead of just reporting on it. After all the support they've given Obama in the last few years, they'll look awfully stupid if states start finding their favorite
CNN immediately took the offense
Isn't that the same laugh he used when told people who can't afford Four Dollar Gas to buy a Fifty Grand SUV
By the way, he used a different Social Security Number to register with Selective Service than the one he's using now. According to evidence Bob Mack presented on his site Crockett Lives..
