Arizona lawmakers - failing to understand their job

As noted in a CNN piece, Arizona has put forth a law to essentially replace the duties of the State Department and the Constitution. Given the timing of the bill, the intended target is obvious.

I'll write more on this later, but wow, this is outrageous. I hope someone figures out standing to challenge this.


  1. I'm not saying that I do or don't believe all of the allegations. However, I do find it odd that Obama is the first President in 50 years to refuse to open up his medical records, school records and produce an actual birth certificate. If this is such an open and shut case, why doesn't Obama do what every other President has done and make all of those records public?

  2. Why bother? He did release an actual birth certificate. The state department certified it so. Unless you think we should expand constitutionally set requirements? Moot point anyway - the Gov. (very, very republican) veto'd it.

  3. Most Presidents open up their medical records, school records, etc.. before running for a second term. But, from what I have read, Obama is still refusing to. I just find it odd. What does he have to hide? I do think it is important information for the public to know when voting on a President. Is he healthy? Was a C-D student or an A student? To many jokes to make about Constitutional Law and Economics classes to get into. (And yes I know he taught Con Law. Good lord is that sad).
