Pre-requisites for elective office

How is it that Barack Hussein Obama can get away with not making public information about his past?

It would seem to me that any candidate should be required to provide the following, at a minimum:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Proof of Citizenship
  • Military discharge (if served in US Armed Forces)
  • School Records
  • Medical Records
  • Submit a professionally written resume as in a job interview
  • References
The games that get played in the courts preventing access to records pertaining to a candidates past should be immediate grounds for qualification to run.

And finally, the candidate should be required to sign a "Pledge of Allegiance" to the United States of America.  If someone can't even feel good about wearing a flag pin on their lapel, then they have told us all we need to know about their ability to uphold and defend the US Constitution.

If elected, we will probably see an attack on the need to take the oath of office with hand on the Bible.
