Calling Obama’s bluff

Arizona looks set to tell Obama to show his cards:

A plan in Arizona to require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility to occupy the Oval Office is approaching critical mass, even though it has just been introduced. The proposal from state Rep. Judy Burges, who carried a similar plan that fell short last year only because of political maneuvering, was introduced yesterday with 16 members of the state Senate as co-sponsors.

It needs only 16 votes in the Senate to pass.

In the House, there are 25 co-sponsors, with the need for only 31 votes for passage, and Burges told WND that there were several chamber members who confirmed they support the plan and will vote for it, but simply didn’t wish to be listed as co-sponsors.

It should be interesting to see how many Arizona and national Democrats oppose this perfectly sensible state law. It should be kept in mind that any opposition to it is a tacit admission that Obama is not, in fact, eligible to be president, so I doubt the New York Times will dare to do its usual hand-wringing about Arizona.
