Kudos for Arizona leading the way. Now Georgia will introduce legislation to make a Presidential candidate prove they are a Natural Born Citizen by showing certified documents. Other states that are introducing Bills are Florida, Oklahoma, New Hampshire, New York, and South Carolina which will propose requirements to ensure presidential eligibility requirements are validated prior to being placed on the ballot. This is about insuring that the Constitutional guidelines are met and that the presidential candidate is not a Citizen or Naturalized Citizen but only a Natural Born Citizen that meets Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 to be President:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

THE PEACH STATE FOLLOWS ARIZONA’S LEAD IN REQUIRING ELIGIBILITY PROOF FOR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

Apr. 24, 2010) — Georgia Representative Mark Hatfield has introduced into the state legislature House Bill 1516, which would require proof of eligibility in order for presidential candidates’ names to be placed on the state ballot for future elections.

A poll taken by CBS/New York Times shows that only 58% of those asked think Obama was born in the United States. Hatfield has stated that Americans have a right to know if the leader of their country is eligible to serve in that position.

This is GREAT for conservatives and republicans (and teabaggers, too)

since any document presented by any democrat or liberal will be dismissed as "a fake!"

and ONLY documents presented by conservatives will be accepted....


no democrat or liberal wil ever be able to run again!

ever!

Are you suggesting that only Conservatives are legally here as natural born citizens?

Really? Why is that? That sounds like more partisan hackery to me, pure unadultrated bullshit!

I would offer the opinion that the "birther" controversy has been detrimental for the president, and for the country. If it is required up front that the candidate provides the documentation of eligibility, there will not be another "birther" issue in the future.
How is that bad? How does that translate into; "no democrat or liberal will ever be able to run again!"?

My understanding is that our current president has provided documentation of his eligibility and won't be affected by these state laws in any way other than putting another piece of paper in the file.

The only way that; "no democrat or liberal will ever be able to run again!" becomes true is if the dems or liberals try to enter an unqualified candidate into the race.

Oh, and i corrected your spelling of "wil" to will.

Let those states publicly declare themselves to be birthers. It does not legitimize the birthers but delegitimizes those states

How does it delegitimze the state to preempt any future birther claims?

Got one!

Which birther claims? Obama presented his qualifications to be President, they were certified by the State of Hawaii as official. There is no controversey except in the feeble minds of birthers

And the states which placate them

Of course not.

But conservatives believe any right wing weird ass lie, not matter how far out and bizarre. So I can't speak for them.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett believes the bill is unconstitutional. “While everyone has an interest in ensuring that only eligible citizens run for president, there are obvious issues with states implementing what could become a patchwork of different tests for a presidential candidate to prove his/her citizenship,” said Bennett’s spokesman.

I know there is no real controversy. But this is to avoid any future controversy. How is that bad?

What is bad is that some two bit political hack with an axe to grind gets to tie up potential Presidential candidates with endless challenges and queries for additional documentation.

I know what the Az law says. It doesn't mention Obama, it doesn't "demand to see his birth certificate".
A candidate wishing to be placed on the ballot in Az according to the new law here likely wouldn't cause the candidate any inconvienience at all. Someone else would do it.

see here is part of the az law;
"B. An original and one copy of the reports required pursuant to
section 16-913 for the office of member of the legislature shall be filed
with either the officer in charge of elections of the county of the
candidate's residence or with the secretary of state. If the candidate files
with the officer in charge of elections, the officer shall transmit the copy
to the secretary of state within five days, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and
other legal holidays. If the candidate files with the secretary of state,
the secretary of state shall transmit the copy to the officer in charge of
elections of the county of the candidate's residence within five days,
excluding Saturdays, Sundays and other legal holidays. The secretary of
state may provide through the procedures manual adopted pursuant to section
16-452 for an alternative method for providing public access to the reports
prescribed by this section.


It says there that az would be satisfied with the records of the origional filing for candidecy, even from the candidates home district. If a candidate filed in his home district, where ever that may be in the USA, AZ law says the elections board can accept a copy from them.

The history of the bill as it passed through our state assembly, for those that may not have heard it before, is that it was introduced by some that question president Obama's citizenship. It only passed through the AZ assembly on the argument that issues like the "birther controversy" won't happen again. Now you can see the controversy as a legit question or you can see the controversy as having to put up with a dumbass waste of time argument. Sorry, had to express an opinion.It was, and is, still a controversy.

Arizona is checking to see if ever person entering the state is a citizen. Not just Presidntial candidates!!

I bet Arizona wish that was their only problem!

Because the Federal government(under the previous administration, in this case George W Bush administration!) check for eligiblity.

The states have the right to check as well through proper channels and no law is necessary to ensure this. In other words, the politicians are wasting time and taxpayers dollars playing, of all the disgusting things, wingnut-politics!


The birthers are a source of misery for right wingers. Their cases keep getting kicked out of court,they come across like Chavez-leftists, and they make little viable contribution to the understanding of right-wing ideological views.
