Several states are in the process of working on legislation that would require Presidential candidates to provide legal proof of Constitutional eligibility in order to be placed on that particular state’s ballot. Arizona is leading the movement right now, having introduced a bill in the state Senate. Other states working on similar legislation include Texas, Pennsylvania, Montana and Georgia.
Obviously, the precipitating factor for all this legislation is Obama’s unrelenting refusal to release a legal copy of his birth certificate providing more fodder to those who question his true country of origin and birth. Because of Constitutional requirements of American citizenship, there are substantial doubts as to his compliance with this and he has never been mandated to produce the documentation. In fact, some have estimated that he has spent around $2 million to try to avoid “releasing” his birth certificate.
The logical question is if there is nothing to hide why is he trying to hide it?
The answer is also obvious: Obama does have something to hide - like his otherwise Constitutional ineligibility to be President. Maybe this is also why he regularly denigrates and trivializes the Constitution.
If these state bills are passed before the 2012 election, Obama may find it impossible to run for re-election or win just by the sheer loss of potential electoral votes.

The following article is a follow-up one to one we published on Jan 24th (Obama Defender and Outspoken Governor of Hawaii Can’t Find Obama’s Legal Birth Certificate). Though the information can’t necessarily be taken as absolute fact, evidence and the overall milieu of this issue should lend it substantial credence.
It is more than time to seriously address this issue immediately!
Friend says Abercrombie told him, 'There is no birth certificate!'
Jack Cashill 1/24/2011
During an interview on the KQRS morning radio show on January 20, Mike Evans, a long-time friend of Hawaii governor Neil Abercrombie, shared a conversation he had with the governor the day prior. The reader is advised to judge for himself the credibility of Evans' account, but he sounds convincing.
Evans, Honolulu born and now a Hollywood-based celebrity journalist, claimed that Abercrombie had promised him that he when he became governor, he planned to find absolute proof that Obama was born in Hawaii.
When Evans spoke to Abercrombie on January 19, Abercrombie reportedly told him that he searched the relevant Hawaii hospitals using his powers as governor, and concluded, according to Evans, "There is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii, absolutely no proof at all that Obama was born in Hawaii." After Abercrombie made such a fuss about finding the birth certificate, Evans concluded of his friend that he has "got some egg in the face."
Curiously too, when Evans asked Abercrombie when he first encountered the young Barack Obama, Abercrombie reportedly said, "I remember him playing in a T-Ball league," when he was roughly five or six years old.
The reader may recall that Abercrombie had told the Los Angeles Times just before Christmas, "Maybe I'm the only one in the country that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, ‘I was here when that baby was born.'"
A few days later, Abercrombie clarified to Mark Niesse of the Associated Press that he didn't exactly see Obama's parents with their newborn son at the hospital, but that he "remembers seeing Obama as a child with his parents at social events." Of course, Obama Sr. had left for Harvard four years before young Barack was T-Ball eligible.
In the Obama rabbit hole, things do seem to get progressively curiouser and curiouser.

The Left has been inexorably denigrated “birthers” who believe that Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirements for President and that he knows that he doesn’t and is hiding this fact. Liberals and Progressives are protecting him because they support his far left ideological positions and want him in power.
Since there has been so much controversy and no definitive answers regarding Obama’s place of birth, is too much to ask to have him produce an authentic copy? In virtually any other walk of life, this would not be such a big issue but for someone who was seeking out the Presidency, it is.
The reason is that the Constitution places strict mandates regarding his country of birth and citizenship.
This enigma persists solely because of Obama’s intransigence in refusing to reveal a legal copy. Obviously, this issue would go away instantaneously and he wouldn’t have to deal with multiple lawsuits, revisit the question frequently or even waste time addressing it in some other fashion if he could produce such a copy.
So why has he not done so (even though he claims he has)?
Well maybe he really has something to hide like not truly being able to meet the Constitutional requirements for becoming/being President. That is, if it is confirmed that he was not born an American citizen (or variants on this), he may have to be removed from office.
We strongly feel that issue should have been legally addressed far before the election. Given the singular importance of this and the attendant mysteries surround his birth (in addition to other inscrutable periods of his life), he should have not been sworn in as President without producing a simple document that virtually every other citizen in this country has to show for a variety of reasons throughout their mundane lives.
Even his outspoken supporter, defender and friend and vehement attacker of “birthers”, the Governor of Hawaii, has been unable to find a legal birth certificate despite his searches.
Hawaii governor can't find Obama birth certificate
Suggests controversy could hurt president's re-election chances
Jerome R. Corsi January 19, 2011
- Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie
Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie suggested in an interview published today that a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Barack Obama may not exist within the vital records maintained by the Hawaii Department of Health.
Abercrombie told the Honolulu Star Advertiser he was searching within the Hawaii Department of Health to find definitive vital records that would prove Obama was born in Hawaii, because the continuing eligibility controversy could hurt the president's chances of re-election in 2012.
Donalyn Dela Cruz, Abercrombie's spokeswoman in Honolulu, ignored again today another in a series of repeated requests made by WND for an interview with the governor.
Toward the end of the interview, the newspaper asked Abercrombie: "You stirred up quite a controversy with your comments regarding birthers and your plan to release more information regarding President Barack Obama's birth certificate. How is that coming?"
In his response, Abercrombie acknowledged the birth certificate issue will have "political implications" for the next presidential election "that we simply cannot have."
Suggesting he was still intent on producing more birth records on Obama from the Hawaii Department of Health vital records vault, Abercrombie told the newspaper there was a recording of the Obama birth in the state archives that he wants to make public.
Abercrombie did not report to the newspaper that he or the Hawaii Department of Health had found Obama's long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate. The governor only suggested his investigations to date had identified an unspecified listing or notation of Obama's birth that someone had made in the state archives.
"It was actually written, I am told, this is what our investigation is showing, it actually exists in the archives, written down," Abercrombie said.
For seemingly the first time, Abercrombie frankly acknowledged that presidential politics motivated his search for Obama birth records, implying that failure to resolve the questions that remain unanswered about the president's birth and early life may damage his chance for re-election.
"If there is a political agenda (regarding Obama's birth certificate), then there is nothing I can do about that, nor can the president," he said.
So far, the only birth document available on Obama is a Hawaii Certification of Live Birth that first appeared on the Internet during the 2008 presidential campaign. It was posted by two purportedly independent websites that have displayed a strong partisan bias for Obama – Snopes.com released the COLB in June 2008, and FactCheck.org published photographs of the document in August 2008.
WND previously reported the Hawaii Department of Health has refused to authenticate the COLB posted on the Internet by Snopes.com and FactCheck.org.
WND has reported that in 1961, Obama's grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, could have made an in-person report of a Hawaii birth even if the infant Barack Obama Jr. had been foreign-born.
Similarly, the newspaper announcements of Obama's birth do not prove he was born in Hawaii, since they could have been triggered by the grandparents registering the birth as Hawaiian, even if the baby was born elsewhere.
Moreover, WND has documented that the address reported in the newspaper birth announcements was the home of the grandparents.
WND also has reported that Barack Obama Sr. maintained his own separate apartment in Honolulu, even after he was supposedly married to Ann Dunham, Barack Obama's mother, and that Dunham left Hawaii within three weeks of the baby's birth to attend the University of Washington in Seattle.
Dunham did not return to Hawaii until after Barack Obama Sr. left Hawaii in June 1962 to attend graduate school at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
Conceivably, the yet undisclosed birth record in the state archives that Abercrombie has discovered may have come from the grandparents registering Obama's birth, an event that would have triggered both the newspaper birth announcements and availability of a Certification of Live Birth, even if no long-form birth certificate existed.
WND has also reported that Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in 2008, has maintained that there is no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate on file with the Hawaii Department of Health and that neither Honolulu hospital – Queens Medical Center or Kapiolani Medical Center – has any record that Obama was born there.
