This story may have legs after all. . . .

A case that challenges President-elect Barack Obamas name on the 2008 election ballot citing questions over his citizenship has been scheduled for a conference at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Conferences are private meetings of the justices at which they review cases and decide which ones to accept for formal review. This case is set for a conference Dec. 5, just 10 days before the Electoral College is scheduled to meet to make formal the election of Obama as the nations next president.
Most likely, however the case goes, it’ll be a nailbiting 5-4 decision. The tiebreaker, of course, will be Anthony Kennedy and whether he’s having a bad-hair day.
Legs indeed, Lord please let this be. If they do rule against the new election could be Sarah v Hillary.
the 4 right of center justices might demure on this one. dont get your hopes too high.
I believe it only requires four justices to bring the case up for argument.
It takes 4 positive “votes” in conference for the SCOTUS to bring the case to trial.
I don’t see Roberts agreeing to it. Conference vote: 6-3, “nay”.
Interesting, I just commented in another thread
that a lot of these other suits may be asking for the wrong thing... Keyes trying to disqualify CA electors, Berg trying to stay the election, etc.
I read this right? In this one, Obama’s name on national ballot is the actual challenge?
My guess is that the justices already know what needs to be done, and they are going to pick and choose which case they review to either get it done right, or to sweep it under the rug in the most discrete manner.
Praying every day, all day long, that Hussein will never take office.
Maybe Thomas, Scalia, et al., will be an answer to prayer.
Even if the case is not heard, what will come out of this is a process for determining qualification before inauguration.
The cynical part of me says that SCOTUS will never do anything with this and risk the collective wrath of the “informed” Obama voters who no doubt will burn their building down.
Did SCOTUS actually demand Obama produce his BC by Dec 1, or did they just require that he respond to the suit?
I don’t know. Its freak show crazy that obama doesn’t produce a birth certificate. Further, actual records from Indonesia list his nationality as Indonesian when he was a boy. There are no documents that show his nationality was transfered back to the USA.
This is the kind of stuff that prevents another rock star like The Arnold from running as POTUS. (Its ok for him to run as govenor but the requirements for POTUS are more stringent—as they should be.)
Is Obama above the law?
Since the case is for an emergency stay, and pertains to a national election, they will accept the case and review it. Their decision will be given prior to vote by Electoral College.
I have a template letter on this topic and addresses to contact the SCOTUS justices and clerks. Please private mail me if you’re interested.
I agree on all points.
But I don’t see the SCOTUS wanting to be the ones to cause Civil War II.
just a feeling on this not facts.
This case also challenges McCain's citizenship.
I want justice to prevail - no matter the outcome.
