J. D. Hayworth wants to see Barack Obama’s birth certificate.
He sorta accused Obama of identify theft?
“All I’m saying is, for every race across the country, especially with identity theft in the news, it would be great that people can confirm who they say they are,” Hayworth said.
“Identity theft? I mean, come on,” an incredulous CNN host Campbell Brown said, laughing. “Is that honestly what this is about?”
Brown pressed Hayworth as to whether he was “comfortable with the fact that (Obama is) an American citizen.” The Constitution requires that the president be a natural-born citizen, which is widely viewed as meaning he must be born in the United States. Obama was born Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii. During the presidential race, Obama’s campaign produced the Hawaii-issued short-form birth certificate, but fringe Obama critics, dubbed “birthers,” continue to demand to see his long-form birth certificate.
“Barack Obama is the president of the United States. He is our 44th president,” Hayworth told Brown. “I have no qualms about who he is, or who he says he is.”
But in a Jan. 26 interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Hayworth said Obama “should come forward with the information, that’s all.”
“Well, gosh, we all had to bring our birth certificates to show we were who we said we were, and we were the age we said we were, to play football and youth sports,” Hayworth said. “Shouldn’t we know exactly that anyone who wants to run for public office is a natural-born citizen of the United States and is who they say they are?”…”
J. D. Hayworth is part of a very lovely little bunch of Maricopa County arch-conservatives. The leader of this lovely little band of Merry Men is Sheriff Joe. Russell Pearce is part of this bunch, but Hayworth finally had to distance himself from Nazi-Lovin’ Pearce.
I keep asking why conservatives put up with the likes of Hayworth, Sheriff Joe, etc. At least Dan Riehl has realized that Hayworth is pathetic.
