The petition was filed on behalf of Keyes and Drake, candidates on the 2008 ballot for president and vice president, and Markham Robinson, an elector for the state of California in 2008.
As candidates during 2008, Keyes and Drake had an interest in having a fair competition for those positions. This interest is akin to the interest of an Olympic competition, where one of the competitors in an athletic competition is found to be using performance enhancing drugs, but is not removed.
The case explains that in such cases, all of the athletes who had trained for the event legitimately are harmed if that disqualified contestant remains, as the contestants would not be competing on a level playing field.
Obama entered this race without having met the eligibility requirements for the office of president of the United States, and, as a result, Keyes and Drake have been injured, because they did not have fair competition for the office.
To the government argument that third-party candidates really arent hurt because they couldnt win anyway, Kreep writes: Does the law, therefore, provide opportunities for, and encourage, majority party presidential candidates to skirt, or ignore, election rules and laws, since, according to respondents, third party presidential challenges would never have standing to challenge?
Such a result would never be acceptable in the jurisprudence of this court, he says.
And, Kreep noted, third-party candidates have included H. Ross Perot and George Wallace, who had an impact on the general election.

Maybe the Supremes are just waiting until they’ve disposed of “Obamacare” and then they’ll get right on this one.
Just like it’s not attempted rape since he never got her panties off.
Duh, doesn’t the Statue of Justice show her blindfolded?
Are dim whit Zer0’s parents both US citizens at his birth? Not as claimed, but could be if Frank Marshall Davis (communist too) is the real father.
This has to be settled because it’s going to come up again when an *anchor baby* wants to run for president.
Thanks for the ping.
I don't dispute your prognostication regarding an attempt at some point by an "anchor baby" to run for the presidency if this is left unresolved. That problem however, is just another facet of why the constitutional crisis that we are already in needs to be resolved: the issue of potential for divided loyalties in the Executive is one of extremely grave concern to the security of the Republic and the rule of law.
The issue of presumed undivided loyalty is far more important than place of birth, though that Minor detail (birth on the nation's soil) is also a NBC criteria that has SCOTUS precedent backing it as part and parcel along with having two citizen parents.
3. If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President. If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, or if the President elect shall have failed to qualify, then the Vice President elect shall act as President until a President shall have qualified; and the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.
No positive proof of eligibility shown to date means "failed to qualify." Now what?
Yes, but unfortunately some very powerful people have a "collective" thumb on the scales.
Why is this disinformation continually showing up on these threads?
we need to start filing other petitions...
petitions addressing the fact that the courts are not upholding existing law nor the Constitution
additionally, points should be made to require the Constitution be upheld IN ITS ENTIRETY ... or taxation will cease
yes, they want our money. the question is, do they hate the Constitution more then their love for our money...
If he gets reelected the USA is going broke. We will have a credit downgrade. He’ll give us all the finger. We’ll be looking at 20 million dollar vacations every month.
Obama is toast
I can't see how they will strike down the wishes of Obama/Holder. Hitler crushed his judges and bent them to his will, thus legitimizing in law the horrors of National Socialism. Maybe I'm being overly pessimistic, but we're dealing with total corruption here....and that, my friends, can be a wily little rascal.
10:14 to 10:17 "Obama can't recover. There's no way he's gonna recover."
We'll see. After all . . .
Lie down until it passes. Chief Justice Roberts swore him in. Twice.
