Birther' Bill: HB 2177
- Would've required President Barack Obama and other presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before their names can appear on the state's ballot
- Arizona would've become the first state to require such proof
- 13 other states have considered similar proposals this year. The proposals were defeated in Arkansas, Connecticut, Maine and Montana
As for her decision to veto this bill, Gov. Brewer said in part: "I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for President of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their 'early baptismal or circumcision certificates'... this is a bridge too far. This measure creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona."
The Constitution clearly states:
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.
This is more than disappointing; it's infuriating. This Bill would have required candidates for President to submit proof of citizenship. Nothing more nothing less as the Constitution requires. Nothing more nothing less.
I guess Brewer is just another Lib pretending to be something she isn't. This administration has done nothing to help Arizonians let alone secure the border and somehow asking for proof of natural born citizenship as is REQUIRED by the Constitution is somehow equal to forcing a candidate to "submit their 'early baptismal or circumcision certificates'? This whole train of logic is asinine. Nor is this issue about one person being a gatekeeper this is about the employee(the President) answering to the employees and proving qualifications. Like I said this is infuriating. You residents in Arizona have a decision to make; not just about Obama, but about Brewer and if she understands who works for whom. Maybe Brewer thinks this decision is her way into Kyl's Senate seat?
Obama has openly ignored the constitution, the laws, the people, and the courts in this country. Do you think he would have complied with this, simply because Arizona said so?
I'm with you on Obama, but this is just Jan Brewer being realistic. No reason to demonize her over this.
