The left is afraid of proposed state laws requiring candidates to prove natural born citizenship

Nation writer David Corn has an article at Mother Jones explaining Arizona’s proposed law that would bar a presidential nominee from Arizona’s ballot unless he demonstrates his natural born status. While I haven’t read the whole article yet, what seems to be remarkable, as Joseph Farah points out at WND, is that Corn seems to accept it as a given that Obama will not be able to satisfy the requirement, and Corn then proceeds to wonder whether Obama can win if he is barred from Arizona and several other states that are considering similar measures.

Farah shows how Corn misconstrues the purpose of the proposed law. Corn says that its purpose is to prevent Obama from being re-elected. No, its purpose is to enforce the constitutional requirement that the president be a natural born citizen. Corn, as a leftist, cannot conceive that people actually care about the Constitution and the law. He sees things only in terms of power.
