Well, yes, Hannity is relevant, because a lot people are claiming that he doubts Obama's citizenship, so quoting him in saying the exact opposite is exactly relevant to the discussion about Fox News. But I agree that candidates should provide that info to each state where they want to be on the ballet, and not to anyone else.

What kind of idiot with the power, money, and total support of the US government allows a foreigner to become president? And even those that believe they aren't saying that are certainly suggesting the possibility still exists.
We don't know anything for certain. Maybe the world is not real, and maybe we are just dreaming.
Bush didn't run for reelection, so it was not his concern who was or was not qualified to run for President. But now that we realize that Obama is a closet war-mongering Republican in disguise, maybe some on the left will demand to see his BC.

The media actually did ask for McCain's BC, and he provided it. But I agree that it should be a uniform requirement for all federal candidates for House, Senate, and President, to certify their age and citizenship (if running for President). Where I live, it is a legal requirement that everyone prove their age to be served alcohol, regardless of their age, and it is enforced without exception.
The interesting thing you have not addressed is that Obama freely and willingly (early in the campaign) released his Certificate of Live Birth to attempt to dispel the myths that he was not born in the USA. So if Obama didn't think he needed to prove his citizenship, then why did he release the Certificate of Live Birth? This is when the hoopla really started, because the Certificate of Live Birth was printed on laser printer, just a relatively short time before he ran for President. Some are wondering why he didn't just release his BC instead of Certificate of Live Birth, and wonder if there is something embarrassing in the BC (even if he is a citizen).

I am not running for President. There is no requirement that members of this forum be US citizens (especially since the publisher is Canadian).
