Via the Commerce News; - Benton backs 'birther' legislation - by Mark Beardsley

-image source-
Rep. Tommy Benton is among 93 state representatives signing “birther” legislation critics say is designed to keep the name of President Barack Obama off the 2012 election ballot in Georgia.

The legislation was sponsored by State Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross) and would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to provide hard proof that they were born on American soil.

Ninety-three House members, including Benton, signed on as co-sponsors. However, 23 House members had second thoughts about the legislation after they learned that Speaker David Ralston did not want to see the bill reach the floor of the House, and removed their names.

“I signed onto the bill. I thought it was a good idea,” said Benton. “When I signed on to run for state representative I had to prove I was a citizen of Georgia, a citizen of the United States and a citizen of the district I was running in.”

The birther movement alleges that Obama, born of a Kenyan father, was not born in the United States. Hawaiian birth records say otherwise, but Hatfield has complained that he’s never seen documentation that Obama is eligible to serve. Nonetheless, Hatfield claims his bill is not about Obama.

As for Benton, consider him a birther.

“I think he’s (Obama) the only one who has refused to show his birth certificate,” Benton said.

Asked if he thought Obama was born in the United States, Benton replied, “I have my doubts about it.” -Continued here; http://www.commercenewstoday.com/archives/4613-Benton-backs-birther-legislation.html

  2. In other related Obama news


    Taitz received from the Social Security Administration the issuance name and his SSAN 042-68-4424 that preceded Obama’s most used SSAN 4425. The Connecticut SSAN was issued between March 28, 1977 and April 15 1977. Thomas Wood who was issued the SS number is deceased.

  4. Obama is getting a pass, but there is another industry that is getting a pass and less attention. That is the media. This article is a perfect example as to why we need to take over the media. If the media was not so corrupt this issue would have been addressed during the primaries.

  5. Representative Tommy Benton walks back his remarks about Obama's birthplace in 5-4-3-2-1.....

    I hope not, but finding politicians who will stick with their original statement after being gang-banged by the Obots isn't easy.

    Please everyone, if you have not yet emailed, faxed or called the Georgia Speaker of the House about Georgia's Barry Bill, do it now!!

  6. "The legislation was sponsored by State Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross) and would require presidential and vice presidential candidates to provide hard proof that they were born on American soil."

    This legislation isn't enough. Proving born citizenship (sometimes called native citizenship or native born citizenship) doesn't prove natural born citizenship. Maybe, instead of pressing them to vote for insufficient legislation, we should be pressing them for legislation that requires proof of natural born citizenship. Otherwise, we may just get what we ask for and not what's needed.

  8. On page 26 of his 1995 book "Dreams from My Father" Barack Obama admits having his "birth certificate" but his 2008 campaign conjured up a computer-image of a Hawaiian Certification-of-Live-Birth to put him on the ballots. Meanwhile Grandma Sarah Obama and a Kenyan cousin claim they were present at Obama's 1961 birth in Kenya. Also in 2008, at great expense and danger, a copy of the Birth Certificate was smuggled out of Kenya.
    A Kenyan Certificate of Live Birth was also uncovered and is likely the document mentioned in Obama's book. No Hawaiian Birth Certificate has ever been found. Patriot Samuel Adams said "It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." I smell smoke and a very big rat.
