Exercises in futility are so much fun.

Better late than never, I suppose, but futile.

Barack Obama’s election and subsequent reelection have forever changed the meaning of the term “natural born”.

There is no need for another stupid petition!!!

Congress itself, LED BY THE DEMOCRATS defined it in TOTAL in 2008 when they held a hearing on John McCain’s eligibility.

In that full congressional hearing, BOTH John McCain’s birthplace was examined, as well as the citizenship of BOTH his parents.

The Democrats ALREADY settled this for us!

Why are we not forcing Boehner to apply the same congressional hearing to Obama that was applied to McCain???

It would be LIGHTS OUT for Obama, and a reset back to the beginning of this constitutional crisis in 2008.

Maybe if some of the Billionaires who pumped mega millions into Romney campaign, could have better spent revealing who Obama really is.

Oops forgot, he is a Nice man with a Nice smile, and we have nothing to fear from him. It is that Evil Rush Limbaugh that we must fear.

"A petition asking the Supreme Court to give a clear concise definition of the term "Natural Born Citizen".

My guess on SCOTUS decision:

"Whatever Obama wants it to be."

(majority opinion delivered by Chief Justice John Roberts)

Going by the U.S. Constitution there has only ever been three types of U.S. citizen.

Those who were citizens at the time of the adoption of the Constitution.

Those who are naturalized as U.S. citizens.

Those who are natural born citizens.

The Supreme Court does not give advisory opinions. Never has.

Anyone who signs this "petition" is simply attesting to his/her ignorance of that fact.

Waste of time. The SCOTUS answered this question in the late 19th century.

If this part of the constitution was in the US code we may of had a chance in court against Obama. It wasn't thus technically it wasn't a law.

Just a suggestion for a petition

I predict that Vladimir Putin will be the Democrat’s 2016 nominee.

There’s a very easy answer to that question - you don’t have standing.....

In the unlikely event SCOTUS takes up this challenge, does anyone truly believe they wouldn't come up with a 9-0 decision?

Of course, then birthers would just cry about judicial activism.

That is a dumb move, even if it is successful. The Current Supreme Court (for that matter, the entire current judiciary) are ill suited to define what is a "natural born citizen." They are thoroughly polluted with misinterpreted precedent, and so far disconnected with original intent that they cannot help but make a wrong decision. (Such as, "Anchor babies are natural born citizens.")

Years ago, people were always urging the NRA to push court cases that would get the court to affirm the Second Amendment. The NRA always balked at this because they were afraid that with the current (at the time) makeup of the court, the decision was very likely to go against them. They intentionally bided their time until the makeup of the court indicated that the time was ripe to take them a defining case.

The United States was gifted with such a case in the guise of McDonald v. Chicago. The court ruled that the second amendment meant the right to own and carry a gun WAS an individual right. That's how it's done, people!

Leave the "natural born citizen" case alone until the public can be educated about the correct meaning of "natural citizen." The courts will eventually follow.

I think I know what they’ll say.

A child who is born by passing through the birth canal of the mother is natural-born. One born by C-Section is not./Sarc!

The Supreme Court already gave a definitive and exclusive definition of NBC in Minor v. Happersett: all children born in the country to parents who were its citizens. It rejected a 14th amendment argument creating a material distinction between 14th amendment birth citizenship and Article II natural-born citizenship.

Justice Scalia has already said not to depend on the current court to uphold the Constitution. Since we saw what they have done to several key constitutional issues in the past few years, I think we can count on his statement.
