Arizona GOPers Move to Reconsider "Birther Bill." Give it Up Already

Categories: I'm Only a Bill

If at first you don't succeed, try, try (and try) again -- no matter how absurd what you're trying to accomplish may be.

A little over a month after the "Birther Bill" failed in the Senate Judiciary Committee, GOP legislators are pushing to send the proposal back to both houses for consideration.

According to the Associated Press, "as House and Senate committees near a deadline to consider legislation originated by the other chamber, proponents want to attach proposals onto unrelated bills Tuesday in the House and Wednesday in the Senate."

The "Birther Bill," apparently, is one of those proposals.

For anyone unfamiliar with the conspiracy theory bill, it would require anyone who wants to run for president or vice-president to prove their U.S. citizenship before their name's allowed on the ballot in Arizona -- even though it happens to already be a federal requirement to land either job.

The bill is in direct response to the repeatedly debunked controversy over President Barack Obama's citizenship and the right-wing conspiracy theorist "birther" movement. Birthers, as you know, are tin-foil-helmet-wearing whack-jobs, so the move doesn't do much to help the state's already bad rep.

The purely symbolic bill has failed twice in the legislature already. It was voted down last year, and despite it passing in the Arizona House of Representatives earlier this year, it failed in committee in the Senate, so it never went to a full vote.

In any event, in the Arizona legislature's crusade to waste as much of its time -- and infinitely worse, your money -- as possible debating useless legislation, both houses could potentially reconsider the proposal.

On the "his father is Kenyan", therefore he's not natural born theory, that is in his book.. Published in 1995.. Certainly no secret.. Nothing Obama sought to hide.. What's your theory? That nobody in congress can read? It was in print for 13 years prior to him becoming president.. Could it be, perhaps, that congress knew his father was Kenyan and it didn't matter?

Yes, it does not matter. Not only was his mother an American but he was bornin the state of Hawaii in a hospital that even published his birth in two newspapersnearly 50 years ago. Enough already!!

If you don't have a high def digital recording of the birth in Hawaii, then it obviously never happened.

Obama is hiding something. If not birthplace, possibly he claimed foreign citizenship during school years. He has spent a lot of money covering his tracks. Something is not right.

The only thing that isn't right is your mind. Anyone who thinks that $$$ reported to the FEC has anything to do with lawsuits ain't right in the head.

President Obama isn't hiding anything and has spent very little. Only 3 of the cases out of 70+ involve his lawyers and one has said he's working pro bono and in another case that was denied, costs were awarded to Obama, Biden and Bowen. The people who are spending all the $$$ on these frivolous suits are the TAXPAYERS! Teapartiers should be outraged!

Why in the world would a person who graduated from a US high school claim foreign citizenship? It would put him at a disadvantage as far as admission, financial aid and school loans!

We know more about President Obama and his family than any other candidate in history. We even know how many traffic tickets his sister has gotten.

Judy Burgess needs to get off the meds.. they're harming her reasoning. The legislators voted "No" to kill the previous bills..and now she introduces a Strike Everything Amendment? Really Geeeze! What part of "NO" does she not understand?

The only reason the dimwitted politicians we hired are doing this is because they don't like President Obama.

I have news for you: I don't necessarily like the president or agree with him on his policies. However, he is still the leader of the Free World and he still has a monumental job to do.

I also suspect politics has to do with this useless do-nothing bill. Obama is a Democrat, and Arizona is heavily Republican.

The lengthy deliberation over this issue is really solving the STATES problems.. thank's local government, you're more inept than ever.Recall them all, stop voting in lockstep with the party you've registered with, as they are not who they used to be.Populists need to unite!

Birthers are untrainable. No matter how many times you bop them in the nose with Obama's rolled up birth certificate, they still continue to make a mess on the living room rug.

Obama has already disclosed that he is Irish. I still see no problem with the president as long as he is doing his job.
