Arizona Governor Vetoes Birther Bill

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed the controversial   ‘birther’ bill that would keep any presidential candidate off of Arizona Ballots without proof of birth in the United States.  Finally someone with a bit of understanding that the whole “birther” issue is a complete waste of time.  The focus on this far right issue will do nothing but insure a second term for President Obama when he produces his birth certificate at the first debate with the GOP candidate.

‘Birther’ Bill: HB 2177

– Would’ve required President Barack Obama and other presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before their names can appear on the state’s ballot
– Arizona would’ve become the first state to require such proof
– 13 other states have considered similar proposals this year. The proposals were defeated in Arkansas, Connecticut, Maine and Montana

As for her decision to veto this bill, Gov. Brewer said in part: “I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for President of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their ‘early baptismal or circumcision certificates’… this is a bridge too far. This measure creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona.”

Now lets move on.
