Why don't the Republicans & new tea party legislators propose legislation 1) requiring that Presidential contenders produce a birth certificate and 2) defining eligibility & natural born as being the offspring of 2 US citizens? Do it before the 2012 election.

I think since it is a requirement of the Constitution that there should be a law that requires anyone running for president to prove they are eligible.

Seems to me only those that doesnt want to follow the Constitution would have an issue with that

The courts have said that eligibility is the responsibility of Congress. Until 2008 most Americans accepted born-in-the-USA as the eligibility threshold. Now some claim it is born-to-two-US-citizens. It won't settle that matter but get Congress to vote on it. Let's see if the new tea party legislators walk the talk.
