Arizona has gotten a law advanced thru its senate that will require anyone, including Obama, to prove they are US citizens by birth.
Eleven state currently have birth certificate legislation under development: New Hampshire HB1245, Arizona's HB2544, Connecticut's SB391, Georgia's HB37, Indiana's SB114, Maine's LD34, Missouri's HB283, Montana's HB205, Nebraska's LB654, Oklahoma's SB91, SB384 and SB540, and Texas; HB295 and HB529.
Obama’s missing birth certificate is the subject of hot debate nationwide, and is part of the presidential campaign for 2012 due to Donald Trump's elevating the subject. Other missing Obama documentation includes kindergarten, elementary, and secondary school records; college records; Harvard Law Review articles; passport; medical records; Illinois State Bar Association records; baptism records; and adoption records.
The US Constitution states: To be President, not only must you be a citizen, but you must also be natural-born - the full definition of natural-born is documented in this link. The entire controversy arose
when it was discovered that there is no official vetting process for a presidential candidate, and no background check, even for security clearances for an elected president and his immediate staff.
If Obama, in fact as many suspect, does not have a valid birth certificate from a US state, then the Democrats have themselves a unique problem to solve. If enough states require the birth certificate,and Obama still chooses not to provide one, or even worse, turns out not to have one, then the party will have to come up with a second-stringer to face the Republicans.
If Obama turns out not to have a birth certificate at all, well, that is a subject of crises proportions that even the courts have chosen to avoid.
Call this a "birther" article, call it a "harbinger of coming elections", as with everything Obama does, we get far more drama than substance..
