Even in the midst of being on the road to one of the most successful turnarounds in US history, some Obama naysayers- all Republicans, arestill requesting proof of his citizenship of the United States.
Although Obama has been in office for over a year, an Arizona State House committee on Tuesday (February 23) approved the measure that would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the requirements to be President.
Skull Valley republican Judy Burgess, who initiated the proposal, states,
“If people have to prove their citizenship to apply for jobs, or to get a passport, they should have to prove it to run for President.”
According to published reports, nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to state officials if he runs for re-election, are Republican.
Personally, I don’t know why we are still sweating the issue; we had a President that showed eligibility to work in the United States, but lacked skill.
I demand from now on that we pass a bill that requires that Presidential candidates pass a choose your own adventure test. This bill would indicate how successful a president is in handling situations when he is forced to make a decision.
Based on the synopsis, we all know that if the “bill” did exist, we would have never elected past President Bush. Mostly because he wouldn’t have made it past the first story in the test, but secondly because we would have the jump on the fact that he didn’t know what he was doing.
I also would like to know where was all this fact checking when Bush led us into the second longest war in our time? Republicans, just get over it. Get off Obama’s back already and enjoy the next seven years of hope and possibility.
