Mike Walsh was a guest on Jim’s show today, and he told us of a situation happening in Arizona. Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, has asked the state of Hawaii to confirm that the state has a valid birth certificate for President Obama. Arizona doesn’t want the certificate, just confirmation that it exists.
Bennett, who spoke to Arizona radio host Mike Broomhead Thursday, said he requested the confirmation eight weeks ago and has not gotten it. Hawaii, he said, does not have to supply a certified copy of the birth certificate, merely send him an email confirming that it has one.
Asked by Broomhead if he would remove Obama’s name from the ballot if Hawaii fails to comply, Bennett said: ‘That’s possible. Or the other option would be that I would ask all the candidates, including the president, to submit a certified copy of their birth certificate.’
The request seems more than reasonable particularly in light of recent revelations that a 1991 bio of the President, authored by the President’s literary agent, declared the President’s birthplace as Kenya.
Again, I personally believe the President was born in Hawaii, but, as they say, oh what a tangled web we weave when first we try to decide to deceive.
