This sounds like another API fantasy. Scotus is never gonna do anything.

What you say may be true, and I may live to see the day when your viewpoint is vindicated (for the record, I hope you are right).

But something tells me that Obama is going to be sworn on January 20 and he will be your President for the next four years: Constitution, facts, logic and the Law notwithstanding.

He paid lawyers a lot of money to fight this. They are a talented team and they may still have a few tricks up their sleeves. And the tricks may be shady or criminal in nature. Just because they are lawyers does not mean they obey the law. Winning is the only thing.

Note that if just one SC justice is in fear of his life, he may set aside his scruples and shut down the case. We'll see....

Has anyone seen or posted any documents, brief, or response filed in any court by Obama’s attorneys?

It would be sweet and it would be wonderful to see the Constitution upheld. But I think you’re dreaming. This whole thing is going to quietly pass right on by without even a whimper.

On Friday the SCOTUS did not engage in a move of check. Rather, they moved an out of the way pawn and yielded control of the center of the board. This is poor chess and poor political maneuvering.

And finally the Supreme Court has made its devastating move of checkmate by allowing a conference on January 16th to discuss Berg’s injunction to stop congress in counting the Electoral College’s votes!

And in the real world, John Roberts, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court will administer the Oath of Office to Barack Hussein Obama on January 20th, 2009.

It'll be on TV if you want to watch it live.

My guess as a non-lawyer is that as long as the SCOTUS members do not issue a ruling, no precedent is set that could affect future court cases of this type. Because of the sensitivity of this particular election, and the ramifications of ruling that Obama would not be eligible to be president, the SCOTUS members may not want to rock the boat at this time, but want to leave the door open for future challenges of future presidents to be.

This is just my uneducated opinion.

Lots of noise, but just that. This Obama corrupt political machine will not allow the SC to have any power. We are in the first stages of Communism and very little can be done. The vast liberal followers believed this nitwit.

...the Justices’ will have it within their power to retroactively cancel the results from the January 8th Electoral College’s vote count!

Absolute utter nonsense.
