atl2atx85 saidI don't see what's wrong with this bill. Citizenship (and of the jus soli variety) is a requirement for presidency. It's no different from the post office (or dep of state, rather) requiring proof of citizenship before issuing a passport.
I agree. Why is this a problem?
It inconsistent with the majority of state laws governing how they produce birth certificates, which is to produce the "certificate of live birth" but not the original one from the hospital. I had to request my own birth certificate a few years ago and the document that I was given is nearly identical to the one Obama's people have released time and time again.
well the state of Ny and California required my original birth certificate and had this idea they could keep/ destroy it for my medical license.
all of there documentations say ORIGINAL not copies or facsimiles. And if the original is not available , a notarized letter has to state the document is lost, unavailable or destroyed.
Many states these requirements this for professional licensing.
You basically have to threaten a lawsuit to get your documents back.
They also require the ORIGNAL medical diploma as well.
This is a stupid political law , i agree because its a waste of money to defend.
But you have to say Obama is loving this Birther thing. He probably has his birth certificate and not giving it up.
The new defense to any criticism of Obama is the explicit word "birther"
this is a straw man, and I have seen it gaining use as Obama racks up the many broken campaign promises.
