Arizona is largely hated. How dare Arizona seek to uphold the law and claim that illegal immigration is actually illegal. Granted, that’s a stretch and all, but you would be shocked at how bloggers ridicule Arizona on this issue, yet will not argue that it is illegal. I know that is shocking, but it is true. That is not the only thing they are angry about with Arizona. Another shocker right? They are angry because Arizona introduced a bill (again) requiring Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates to prove their constitutional eligibility. Never mind the twelve other states that are pushing similar legislation. The reason they are angry with Arizona is because the bill contains the following specific “anti-Obama” language.
This particular tale of anti-birther woe starts with the Democratic National Committee’s Certificate of Nomination… or should I say Certificate(S)!
Let’s play a game! Which one of these pictures is not like the other?
Where the stories go wayward is which forms were sent to which states. Some claim Hawaii needed the additional statement, while others claim “some states” needed the additional adage of being constitutionally eligible to hold the office.
Do you mean to say that not all states ensure this is verified? Admit it! That just went through your mind!
Apparently not! Though the DNC are and RNC are vetted with the verification of constitutional eligibility, little is in place beyond that of taking their word for it - and so it would seem the these two committees take the word of the candidates. Craziness I tell you! On occasion, constitutional eligibility is made issue of. More recently, McCain was targeted to which he provided a copy of his long form birth certificate.
All of this coming to light as bloggers criticize AZ for sponsoring a bill specifically requesting the long form birth certificate. Truth be told, we could have had multiple presidents serving that were not constitutionally eligible… not just this one. That was a joke, but there is truth in jest.
Out of prudence, it was important to look at the RNC’s Certificate of nomination. Yes, it contains the caveat of constitutional eligibility. No, there were not different versions for different states. And no, it does not have the DNC’s typo in it either. Did you catch that? “Though” is used for through. This typo dates back to at least 2000. Gore’s contained it, Kerry’s contained it and obviously Obama’s contains it… both of them.
Remember that all of this was in liberal blogs. I had no idea about any of this. The blogger would write disparaging things about Arizona and go forward in presenting an excellent case as to why constitutional eligibility verification is actually needed. Even if Obama is not a usurper, would it not be nice to definitively know that each and every president is actually eligible to be President of the United States; especially after seeing the gaping holes in constitutional eligibility verification that have been waiting to be exploited by a person who studied the constitution? It has been the perfect storm brewing while it awaited the right opportunist.
Not only has there not been a long form birth certificated provided to put this to rest, one has NEVER been requested. It makes more and more sense why Obama has spent 1.5 million taxpayer dollars keeping his secrets so secretive.
My guess is that if states would pass these so called "birther bills," Obama would come up with an excuse to run in 2012.
