Those that question Obama's birth certificate, and qualification to be president are often labeled as extremists, birthers, nut jobs or conspiracy theorists. But, it looks like the idea has become more mainstream, as the Arizona State House voted to require that Obama show his birth certificate if he wants to run for reelection in their state. Seems like common sense to me. Candidates should be required to prove their eligibility if they want to be on state ballots.
The Arizona House on Monday voted for a provision that would require President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate if he hopes to be on the state's ballot when he runs for reelection.
The House voted 31-22 to add the provision to a separate bill. The measure still faces a formal vote.
It would require U.S. presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the constitutional requirements to be president.
