PHOENIX (AP) — Nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to state officials if he runs for re-election.A state House committee on Tuesday approved the measure sponsored by 40 of the state's 90 legislators. It would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the requirements to be president.All 40 co-sponsors are Republicans, comprising 75 percent of the GOP caucus. Two of them have since resigned to run for Congress.The idea was proposed by Skull Valley Republican Rep. Judy Burges. She says if people have to prove their citizenship to apply for a job or get a passport, they should have to prove it to run for president.

One can see the ice bergs. They have names on them: Tea Party, Freedom, Liberty, American Citizen, et al. The phony ship of state, Obama, has begun to hit them as it carefully and deceitfully navigates the foaming seas. Cracks are developing where it collides with them. Soon it will be floundering even more than it has. A sinking cannot come any too soon. All democratic hands on deck. To the depths they go.
