Yep, the birther bill was vetoed. Brewer is an opportunistic politician on the rightwing, but even she is smart enough to recognize what she was
stepping into had she signed off this bill. To state the obvious:
The law violates the constitution in the full faith & credit clause
, in particular it refuses to recognize what Hawaii considers a suitable
form of a birth certificate.
It automatically disqualifies natural born american citizens from running for the presidency because they don't have a long form birth certificate, it
is silly. None of my relatives have their original long form birth certificates, not all original birth certificates are held by each state, some
states no longer issue them, Arizona being one of them:
Aside from the waste of money on these kinds of birther bills, what exactly will an image of Obama's long form birth certificate do for birthers alike
"It's just a piece of paper" in their words.
They are unqualified to examine it's authenticity and would require Hawaiian officials to do so (again)
That it will repeat the same informaton contained in the short form?
So what will releasing his long form birth certificate do? Nothing really. If a child cries and stamps his feet because he wants that toy on the shelf
at a shopping center, the wrong thing for the parent to do is to give the child what he wants, because then the child will become spoiled and demand
