    The latest: Arizona's top elections official is trying to explain why he's seeking to verify the document before placing Obama on the November ballot.

    Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, a Republican exploring a 2014 race for governor, issued a statement insisting he is not a "birther," the word he and others use for those who believe Obama was not born in the United States and is not legitimately president. Bennett told a radio interviewer yesterday it was "possible" he would keep Obama off the ballot if the issue isn't resolved.

    After ALL this time and hoopla do you not think that the greatest information/intelligence gathering organizations on the planet would not have acted is the POTUS was NOT an American citizen by birth?

    well, it seems that the Hawaii state government has declined to release anything, since Ken Bennett doesn't qualify for official release of the document:

    And Hawaii has responded. They asked him under what Hawaii law qualies him to receive the verification which he seeks.
    -------
    g) The department shall not issue a verification in lieu of a certified copy of any such record, or any part thereof, unless it is satisfied that the applicant requesting a verification is:
    (1) A person who has a direct and tangible interest in the record but requests a verification in lieu of a certified copy;

    (2) A governmental agency or organization who for a legitimate government purpose maintains and needs to update official lists of persons in the ordinary course of the agency's or organization's activities;

    (3) A governmental, private, social, or educational agency or organization who seeks confirmation of a certified copy of any such record submitted in support of or information provided about a vital event relating to any such record and contained in an official application made in the ordinary course of the agency's or organization's activities by an individual seeking employment with, entrance to, or the services or products of the agency or organization;

    (4) A private or government attorney who seeks to confirm information about a vital event relating to any such record which was acquired during the course of or for purposes of legal proceedings; or

    (5) An individual employed, endorsed, or sponsored by a governmental, private, social, or educational agency or organization who seeks to confirm information about a vital event relating to any such record in preparation of reports or publications by the agency or organization for research or educational purposes. [L 1949, c 327, §22; RL 1955, §57-21; am L Sp 1959 2d, c 1, §19; am L 1967, c 30, §2; HRS §338-18; am L 1977, c 118, §1; am L 1991, c 190, §1; am L 1997, c 305, §5; am L 2001, c 246, §2]
    --------------

    At this time, Bennett is not qualified to receive verification.

    The GOP is Obama's best hope for re-election. They're nuts.

    Enough already of this birth certificate crap! For the love of God Almighty!

    I didn't vote for Obama in 2008 nor do I plan on voting for him this year (or anybody in truth) but I thought this was already solved. icon_rolleyes.gif

    As someone who does lean Republican on some issues, I am eagerly anticipating for the current crop of nut-bag Republicans to be replaced by the more sane, progressive Republicans of my generation!

    But by not voting for anybody you empower these Republican maniacs. How do you justify that?

    To answer your question: I simply have no intention of supporting the 2012 election candidates. I may agree with Obama on the LGBT issues, but he isn't my first choice. And I certainly don't like Romney. Lastly, candidates who hold my views aren't well represented in this pathetically corrupt two-party system.

    THIS is how I justify my aforementioned post.

    I agree with Athlete, these far right republicans are "Obama's best hope for re-election". They are doing a pretty good job of turning even republicans against these fruitcakes.

    Having made it a habit to read from the 'far right' regularly (too keep abreast of what the 'enemy' is up to), I am amazed at the number of articles on Obama's birthplace being other than Hawaii in the last month. The hell of it is that these people are crazy enough to actually be serious.
