Arizona Official Suggests Obama Could Be Off Ballot

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett (R) told KFYI he's not entirely convinced President Obama was really born in the United States and suggested he could be knocked off the state's presidential ballot.

Said Bennett: "I'm not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii -- or at least I hope he was. But my responsibility as secretary of state is to make sure the ballots in Arizona are correct and that those people whose names are on the ballot have met the qualifications for the office they are seeking."

Bennett said he has been trying to get officials in Hawaii to verify the president's birth certificate for the last eight weeks.

Joke state, sure. But It's a smart way to stir up the anti-immigration base in Arizona. There's no way Obama's name will be left off the ballot.

Did that Bennett guy already obtain Romney's birth certificate as well? For all we know, Romney could actually hail from Tijuana.

Likely? Don't blow this way out of proportion. It's obvious he's just trying to stir something up - he's not going to go through with it.

They won't remove his name, if they ever do try his campaign will ruthlessly convince them otherwise until they stop.

Well, even if this guy removes Obama from the ballot, I imagine some judge would take about 3 seconds to override that.

If that were to happen, expect this map.  99.9% that will not happen.

Didn't Hawaii ask him for documentation to prove that he's actually the Arizona Secretary of State?

I fail to see how this would affect results elsewhere, at least as... wildly as you state.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

Is the guy really "likely" to remove the name?  He's following the guidelines of his job, but not exercising his brain... freaking bureaucrats.  Also, why can't the POTUS get his crap together, seriously this is a weird tactic of making himself the victim of himself.

This map won't happen unless Romney crowns himself king of the Mormons and says all non-believers should be persecuted.

Why would you wait 3 to 6+ years to let anyone see your birth certification ? ?  It should have been produced in 2007 not 2011.  The only thing I can come up with to explain the lag time is trying to be a victim.  It wouldn't be surprising considering that it was either the Hillary or Obama campaign that started the birther thing in the dem primary.

I hate to get sucked into this Birther Black Hole but didn't Obama release his Certificate of Live Birth in 2007?

I wanna see Mitts long form Birth Certificate.

If I remember right, there were a lot of things about that Certificate of Live Birth that didn't exactly click. Isn't that what started the birther crap in the first place? The fact that the documentation he provided was... questionable?

And I know it's a double-standard. But Obama shouldn't have waited this long. If there was as much demand for Mitt's birth certificate, I'm sure he would've quickly caved in (i.e., his tax returns).
