Senator McCain’s GOP Challenger Calls For Obama’s Birth Certificate

After serving six terms in Congress John David “J.D.” Hayworth returned to the radio booth where he has hosted of a conservative talk show in Phoenix. He recently decided to get back into the political arena, and is challenging incumbent Senator and former GOP Presidential candidate John McCain, with a unique brand of conservative policy and rhetoric. Need proof? While appearing on Hardball last night he told Chis Matthews that, yes, Barack Obama should produce a birth certificate.

When asked by the host if he was as “far right as the birthers?” Hayworth responded, “well, gosh, we all had to bring our birth certificates to show we were who we said we were, and we were the age we said we were, to play football in youth sports…Shouldn’t we know exactly that anyone who wants to run for public office is a natural born citizen of the United States, and is who they say they are?”
