Tell GOP Governors: Stop the Birther Bills

    1. Sponsored by

      Democratic Governors Association

No matter how many times it’s disproven, Republicans still embrace the dangerous conspiracy theory that President Obama wasn’t born in this country and is not eligible to hold office.

It’s just not true. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans in numerous state legislatures from introducing “birther” bills aimed specifically at undermining President Obama.

And it hasn’t stopped Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-Louisiana) from promising to sign one of these bills. In Indiana, you know that Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels will fall over himself to score points with the Tea Party if the bill under consideration there reaches his desk.

ENOUGH! Stand with the DGA today against these birther bills. The Republicans need to stay laser-focused on creating jobs and improving the economy, not supporting sideshow issues in order to score cheap political points.

Sign the petition now and show Republican governors like Bobby Jindal and Mitch Daniels that you oppose these so-called birther bills.

      This is absolutely ridiculous and it needs to end right now. The people responsible for this nonsense should be charged with harassment. That IS what this IS.

      Well they are discrediting a the President of the United States. When he was running for the presidential seat all the FBi, Investigators never did a background check. He got the presidential seat because at the time he was the best qualified person. I forget the name of the senate Obama out run, because the senates womanizing and sleeping with prostitute, i forgot his name.

      Well look at me my father fought for alot of Americans now freedom, his own foreign child cant come and see her grandmothers and grandfathers graves. Because they they denied my citizenship saying he is not married to my mother and he have apply before my eighteen birthday, well smarty pants my father got crazy after the war and he was in no position to file, we did blood test to show he is my father. He was alive at the time. America has left me fatherless and rape by a mad father and this way before Obama has been President.

      Thank you Readers.

      Why is it that politicians feel the need to act like children. If you want to be in any way involved in running this country, be it through congress, the senate, the presidency, etc. then you're going to have to prove your maturity first. Come on folks, you're running a freaking country for Heaven's sake, state acting your age not your freaking shoe size. I am by no means an Obama fan, but I'm really sick of this stupid birther thing and the republicans really need to just drop it already and do their damn jobs and focus on more important things.

      I feel that anybody should be able to be president or hold any other public office, as long as they have satisfied length of residence requirement, which shouldn't be longer than three years. Unless you are a native American, you are an immigrant or descended from immigrants. Plus, there should be a lot of shame for those who can claim long roots in this nation, because then their families were probably part of stealing this land from the Native Americans and the enslavement of the Africans forcibly brought to America.

      I also don't see why a felony conviction should bar anyone from either voting or holding public office. The only exception I'd make regarding holding public office would be felonies related to the position, such as taking bribes.
