A GOP-controlled board in Kansas is trying to decide whether to remove President Obama from the state ballot over objections about his birth certificate.

The State Objections Board -- consisting of three of the state's top Republican elected officials -- ruled Thursday it did not yet have enough information and postponed a decision until Monday.

"I don't think it's a frivolous objection," Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "I do think the factual record could be supplemented."

Obama has long battled questions about the authenticity of his birth certificate and the legitimacy of his presidency. He released his long-form birth certificate in April 2011, which shows he was born in Hawaii. At the time, Obama said he was trying to end the "silliness" that has been sparked by people known as "birthers" who doubt he was born in the United States.

Kobach is an informal adviser to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has said repeatedly that he believes Obama was born in the United States. The state attorney general and lieutenant governor are also on the Kansas Objections Board.

It would be huge blow if Obama is removed from the ballot in Kansas. His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was born there as were his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, who helped raised him.

Earlier this year, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett also considered removing Obama from his state ballot but backed down after receiving information from Hawaii "that proves Obama's American birth."

Watch the inauguration.

See the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court flub the oath of office. See him smile, and squirm like a ten year old school girl.

See the President catch him in the act.

then tell me it wasn't an attempt to create yet another bone to be thrown to right wing whack jobs. Tell me the Chief Justice wasn't attempting to engineer an argument stipulating that the President wasn't the legitimate leader of the Free World because he wasn't even properly sworn in . . .

The Robert's court has done more to undermine civilian rule than any in history.

Just another stupefyingly stupid Republican. The problem is there are so damn many of them.

From a poll in Ohio -

"Who do you think deserves more credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?"

Wait for it. Wait for it.

47% of Republicans said they were 'Not sure'. Huh????

15% of Republicans said Mitt Romney. Wha wha wha wtf!!!

This from the same minds that gives us trickle-down economics.

They are as brainwashed as the people attacking embassies.

That's what happens when you worship liars, and thieves.

And good luck changing their opinion...closed minded inbred bigots.

Sorry , this only applies to 15 to 38 percent of the right, I mean wrong, ergo the repuckered party scoundrel traitors.

The party should disband, or at least any left with any integrity.

I hope Kansas does this, Obama won't win there anyway, and it would help open some eyes.

The birther issue has been one of the greatest distractions of all time. Unprovable either way.

The rights constant hate for Obama, which started before he was even sworn in (if you look at his policies, the right should be pretty fuckin happy by now) overtook them to the point that they forgot to find someone to run against him.

A classic distraction technique that the government has been using for, well, probably longer than I realize.

And 30% of registered Rs believe Obama is a Muslim
and those are the ones who escaped from their straight jackets!

[-] 2 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Which means 70% of them do not.

"Currently, 17% of registered voters say that Obama is Muslim; 49% say he is Christian, while 31% say they do not know Obama’s religion."

That means 49% say he's Christian and 48% either think he's a Muslim or don't know.

16% of Independents think he is a Musllim And 8% of Democrats think he is. Pew Research Center
