In Arizona: Secretary of State Ken Bennett wants proof of President Barack Obama's citizenship before he's on the ballot

Here's another fool who's going to have foolishness as a legacy. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett wants proof that President Obama is an American before putting his name on the ballot.

From Yahoo News:
 Most Republican critics of Obama have given up pushing widely discredited long-running allegations that he was not born in the United States.
Bennett said he is attempting to confirm that Obama's name can appear on Arizona's presidential ballot, the Arizona Republic newspaper said.
While confirming on Friday that he had made the request, Bennett said he did not buy into the "birther" belief.

"First, I have been on the record since 2009 that I believe the president was born in Hawaii. I am not a 'birther,'" he said in a statement.

"At the request of a constituent, I asked the state of Hawaii for a for a verification in lieu of certified copy. We're merely asking them to officially confirm they have the president's birth certificate in their possession and are awaiting their response," he said.

The White House has denied repeated claims that Obama was not born in the United States.
In April 2011, Obama released a longer version of his birth certificate to try to put to rest speculation that he was not born in the country as required by the U.S. Constitution to become president.
The Arizona Republic said Bennett made the request about eight weeks ago and communicated with Hawaii officials as early as four weeks ago.
Arizona needs to be under some surveillance.

Obama could bring his birth certificate, the doctor who delivered him, the nurse who worked in the nursery, the discharge nurse from the hospital, every single person who saw his pregnant mother, and every single medical person who was even a small part of the pregnancy, and these fools would still call it a conspiracy.

This...umm...person (I'm trying to be polite) evidently is very insecure and feels the desperate need for his 15 seconds of infamy. Why else would he publicly show the entire planet the specific part of his anatomy that rests upon his shoulders?

Come to think of it (and I'm NOT being nice) his ass would be a much better sight than his face!

In the immortal words of Forrest Gump: "Stupid is as stupid does."
