Arizona Birther Bill Slammed By White House And Critics


Arizona Birther Bill Slammed By White House And Critics – State Representative Kyrsten Sinema (D-Phoenix) commented on the Birther Bill which recently advanced in the Arizona House.Kyrsten Sinema said that the bill was making their state the entire “laughing stock of the nation.” The kind of reaction that the legislature has seen would suggest that just about everyone is agreeing with her comments. The Arizona House of Representatives voted on Monday and the final score was 31-22 meaning that the bill would advance.The bill is supposed to require Arizona’s secretary of state to review a presidential candidate’s birth certificate before that candidate could get on the ballot in the state.

Some voters from the Arizona Republic said that “The legislation originated from a fringe group that believe President Barrack Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States of America and therefore ineligible to be a president.” Why Arizona feels like it is their authority to review the birth certificates is unknown. The “birther movement” is really not for future presidential candidates, but rather questioning Barrack Obama’s origin of birth. It is clear that the origins of the bill came from some pretty opinionated areas. The controversy over whether or not he was born in the United States started early in the campaign. It is clear with this bill and for other reasons that the thought he could be born outside of the states is till in question by many Americans. There are lots of evidence to support that he was born in the United States though and this is including a birth announcement that was brought forth in 1961. It was even printed in the Hawaii newspapers. The White House has dismissed the legislation


  1. It should NOT fail. Look, it is the LAW to be a US citizen in order to be President so what is wrong with showing your birth certificate? This is a common sense bill it is a REQUIREMENT for the JOB.

  2. This will only affect the current president IF he runs for office in 2012.

    It is entirely within the right of anyone to ask for the certifying credentials for a candidate for public office. READ THE CONSTITUTION. A legal challenge to this bill would be stopped by that pesky little document (the constitution.)

    The state’s argument and my counter to the “illegality” of the bill is: “So a candidate for office doesn’t have to show ANY legal documents proving citizenship or even residency?”

    Semper FI!!!
