44 US Presidents and the first black man needs to prove to Swanger he has a birth certificate.

There's a word for that and it not birther.

Sounds like Republicans are running scared that they do not have a candidate that has the ability to beat Obama. So they have to resort to other tactics.

Its the most important political position in the USA and one of the REQUIRMENTS is to be born in the USA.. how do you propose a candidate proves he or she was born here?

There are many illegals in our military so a birth certificate does not really matter for the military.

Do we really know about the amount of time that the politicians waste that we pay them good money for? Of course not! I wish we did though. Now more than ever the working class citizens who still have jobs have to justify everything they do in their work day for their small paychecks. Why should we not ask the people who are supposed to be fixing our nation for justification on the time they are getting paid for? I think that there are more important things out there to worry about than putting a bill together like this. The other day I watched on TV where they were having a meeting with the heads of the military to ask them how the repeal of "Dont Ask, Don't Tell" was affecting the military. They all said everything was fine...yet the panel kept trying to get them to say it wasn't. It kills me to see how much time and effort is wasted on things that have already taken place and are dealt with. Move on and help the nation....help your county....sigh.

Swanger is a disgrace. She has become more bizarre and extreme than Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman, two fellow Republican idiots and lunatics. Lebanon County residents need to recall her from office. Instead of wasting her time on nonsense like this, she should be fighting to properly fund local school districts and state universities, working to improve Pennsylvania's economy and increase jobs, and introducing meaningful legislation to benefit her constituents and all residents of the Commonwealth. Swanger has gone off the deep end and needs to check herself into Philhaven for treatment before she is 302'd!

Kind of pathetic that these two dolts feel the need to pander to the crackpot fringe of the eccentric fringe that is now the GOP. Isn't it ironic that the same people who are consumed with their hatered for this President never uttered a peep of criticism during the Bush and Cheney devestaion of our country ?

One of the requirement to be president of the USA you have to be an American citizen.

It't evident that Obama is an imposter That's why he has all his records sealed.

In fact he should of never been in the senate.

Bill O'Reilly addressed this on his show earlier this week and said that the people who are continuing to raise the birth certificate issue are doing nothing more than to try to delegitimize the president.

O'Reilly basically called Donald Trump a fool for stirring this up, again.

Sorry I usually dont resort to name calling but seriously. First of all, you dont "have to be born here". For Example, if me and my pregnant wife (non-citizen wife) go on vacation to Europe and she has the baby in Europe, you are telling me my newborn is not an American Citizen.

I know you are stupid so I will explain the non-citizen wife thing to you. If an American marries a NON-American, the spouse does not automatically become a citizen. They would have to apply for citizenship. In order to stay in the country the spouse is granted "residency" which is not citizenship. Residents pay taxes but cannot vote.

You birthers are so stupid, that is one of the reasons I dropped the Repubican Party. I dont want to be associated with Racists and Lunatics.

I watch Bill and he said NO SUCH thing!!!!!

What he said was If there is nothing to hide Why can't Obama just show his birth record. Just show it

Another Liberal lie!!

Noone has to delegitimize obama he's is.

Nothing to hide Why are all his records sealed.
Just show it,
Obama is NOT an American citizen one requirement to be POTUS

His grandmother even said he was born in Kenya

Like i stated before.

Obama mother or father were NOT in the military which makes them exempt from military residency and citizenship status.

How stupid can you be
Look up it

Obama grandmother ststed that he was born in Kenya.

Obama is an imposter.

Well MidAtlantic, this is from O'Reilly's website, quoting his Talking Points memo from Tuesday:

“Allegation: No birth certificate has been made public. True, but the state of Hawaii has once again said Mr. Obama’s birth certificate is on file. A Factor investigation also showed that Mr. Obama was born in a Honolulu hospital."

WRONG!!

Governor Abercrombie of Hawaii stated in the media he could NOT FIND any birth record for Obama, in fact there is a Topix tread to that fact.
LOOK IT UP.
No birth record in Hawaii for Obama FACT!!!!
