The undocumented President Obama has stirred up his own controversy with the so-called "birther" movement. To this day, Barack Obama has only released a certificate of live birth, which isn't an actual birth certificate. Conspiracies started to grow about whether Barry Soetoro was really born in Kenya and not in Hawaii, thus making him ineligible to be our president. Since the Supreme Court won't take on the case, some state lawmakers are looking at different ways to get the president, and all future politicians, to show their actual birth certificate before their name appears on a state's election ballet. Birthers can now anxiously await for the next election.
The birther movement had quieted down until that fat slob and socialist of a governor, Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, announced he was working to produce the birth certificate to dispel claims Obama wasn't born in America. Abercrombie, who was a member of the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA), went on a witch hunt searching for the document. He brought the situation on entirely himself. After reviving the issue, Abercrombie was stopped short due to alleged privacy laws.
"There is nothing more than Governor Abercrombie can do within the law to produce a document. Unfortunately, there are conspirators who will continue to question the citizenship of our president."
Conspirator really isn't the appropriate term because Obama has not released his actual birth certificate. That's a fact and it's also coming from a non-birther who would just like to see the document. Obama has the opportunity to make birthers look like idiots by simply providing the document. That won't happen - his birth certificate is in the same hidden pile of documents that include all of his college transcripts and other material showing what an anti-American, ideological liberal he really is.
Disappointed by Obama's own lack of transparency, Arizona state lawmakers have drafted a bill that would require all presidential candidates to provide their actual birth certificate before their name appears on the state's election ballot. It's genius, really. In fact, a handful of other states - Texas, Montana, Pennsylvania, Georgia - are looking into passing a similar bill.
Arizona tried to pass a similar measure last year, but failed by a few votes. The current numbers supporting the bill indicate there's a chance it could pass. The legislation doesn't single out the birther movement, but rather the portions of the Constitution that mention presidential eligibility.
"Within ten days after submittal of the names of the candidates, the national political party committee shall submit an affidavit of the presidential candidate in which the presidential candidate states the candidate's citizenship and age and shall append to the affidavit documents that prove that the candidate is a natural born citizen, prove the candidate's age and prove that the candidate meets the residency requirements for the President of the United States as prescribed in article II, section 1, Constitution of the United States."
That's a mouthful, but basically the phrase "natural born citizen" taken directly from the Constitution is the essential piece of information. It's already a presidential requirement, but clearly some individuals don't believe Obama has proved he's eligible to hold the office.
Once again, President Obama has made this situation on his own. He didn't release his official birth certificate, and, when pressed, simply points to his certificate of live birth, which even a foreign-born individual can get. Beyond that, his Democratic allies do nothing but demonize the birther movement, which doesn't help their argument. This is why he's earned the name of our undocumented president.
