Posted on 01/23/2012 9:02:19 AM PST by Oldpuppymax
For those who have waited 3 years for a judge to finally rule that Barack Hussein Obama must prove that he is legally and Constitutionally qualified to run for or serve as President of the United States, the day may have come at last.
For on Friday, Georgia State Office of Administrative Hearings Judge Michael Malihi ruled that subpoenas demanding the presence of Barack Obama in his Georgia courtroom on January 26th along with the original form of his Hawaii birth certificate and information on his myriad Social Security numbers will remain in force.
Obama s attorney Michael Jablonski had filed a motion to quash those subpoenas, arguing if Obama were made to answer questions before the court it would [require] him to interrupt duties as President of the United States (1)
It was also Obamas claim that presidential electors and Congress, not the State of Georgia, hold the Constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates. (1)
Well Judge Malihi did not agree with Obamas arguments that the laws of the State of Georgia were somehow irrelevant to the process, or that his presence in the court would materially interfere with his ability to discharge the duties of his office.
In his decision to allow the subpoenas to remain in force, Malihi wrote,
Defendant (Obama) has failed to cite any legal authority evidencing why his attendance is unreasonable or oppressive, or that testimony...

Hurrah for judical courage, in the face of unlawful adversery!
Is the Georgia primary “open”? Maybe we could get a few Republicans to write-in:
Hey don’t worry about Correction. That is how most of the Obamanerds spell Canidate any way.
Donofrio sent an Amicus Brief that is 54 pages long with 155 pages of index to the Georgia court.
Just imagine if a Reublican President were faced with the same questions. The media feeding frenzy would be epic!
We don’t want to knock O’Bummer out prior to the election. His replacement may not be as easy to beat. He is his own worst enemy.
"Just send your lawyers along with the requested documents ... that will be fine. Otherwise, you will not be on the ballot."
Don't give this to the Libs as a potential tool to use down the road.
A sitting president becomes a candidate if he wishes to run for a second term. Candidates must meet the qualifying criteria in each state if they wish to be on the ballot.
This is going to real unpopular, but ...
I don’t think the President should have to personally appear to answer a subpeona. That opens the door for every crackpot liberal judge to issue subpeonas when there is a republican in the White House.
“Just send your lawyers along with the requested documents ... that will be fine. Otherwise, you will not be on the ballot.”
Then that should be the standard for ANYONE, not just POTUS.
“Has any major news outlet even reported on this because this is serious business now.”
That was meant to be a JOKE, right? CNN/MSNBC/NBC/ABC cover THIS story???? Make their boy look bad when he’s a no show???
Let’s hope this spreads.
Bad idea. Judges tend to dislike allowing a precedent like that. The judge is likely to thus rule in favor of the plaintiffs and declare that Obama's name be stricken from the Nov ballot. That will liven things up.
It would be real juicy if the appeal went to the Supremes, and they off-handedly asked Obama to produce TO THEM, the documents in question.
Thanks..the documents are impressive.
Yeppers! I have been biting my tongue since I found out about it.
I have HOPE for real now!
Then the same thing will happen as happened tp President Clinton when he was implicated in the murder of Vincent Foster.
So true !
Bari's lawyer: No, Your Honor. Thanks for asking.
I’m still not convinced this is a ploy to have the judge declare he has all his records in order to kill the birther movement before the election.
Thomas said SCOTUS was "evading" the issue. Evade is a negative word far worse than merely avoiding or ignoring or side stepping. That is very telling.
