'Birthers' Vs. Pres. Obama: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight on 360°, keeping them honest. The 'Birthers' are back and this time legislators are listening.
Arizona passes a bill demanding presidential candidates produce a birth certificate. Five other states are working on similar measures. Tonight, hear directly from one of the Arizona lawmakers who voted for the bill.
Plus, new developments in the murder of a principal and more.

    I'm sorry about your father. I am a nurse and I do allow children to see their dying or ill parent if the other parent makes that choice.

    Actually I get worried when I see someone that out of it or intoxicated. It's not funny. Where's he going to go stumbling next? And he doesn't have a friend with him. Unless it's the person with the video camera.

    Great show Anderson.

    Good night everyone,.

    Thanks Anderson for trying to pin Mr. Ash to the wall! He did a great job of skirting the issue...must be he doesn't know how to access in formation on-line! I agree with Rowland. Are people really stupid enough to believe this is not racially motivated!

    Good evening Joe Johns.

    Is it not an astrounding success that GM has already paid back it's bailout money with interest?

    Anderson, good question about research into deeper levels of cognition and awareness. Isn't it also the case that the brain sometimes reconfigures so to speak it's memory after injuries? And I've seen reports about devices that allow people with disabilities to communicate and type messages via blinking.

    I can understand the fathers concern, but I think there's a strong argument that it would be good and healing for the children to be able to be with their mother. It is a sensitive issue and more complex than it might appear at first glance, but they must wonder about their mother too.

    Great show tonight.

    Mr. Cooper is on fire — someone needs to find out what he ate and how his routine went today so you can write it down before the AC360 team heads home. 😉
