I predict this will go nowhere.
They are a bit late to be filing this. Most likely it will get reviewed AFTER the election.
Holy Jumpin’ Judas!
Yes Please! YUM!!
Sen. Obama is not a naturalized U.S. citizen
From my understanding it’s “native born” not “naturalized” that’s mentioned in the Constitution. The Governator of California is a naturalized citizen but not native born therefore he’d be ineligible to become president ....
If his mom is an American, than born anywhere, he is an American.
He he has a problem at this stage, I think, he should go to the credentials committee of the Democratic Party.
Glad it’s a Dem and that this wasn’t dropped on a Friday afternoon.
Not at her age. She would have had to be a Citizen resident of the US for 5 years after her 16th birthday. She was 19 as I understand it when Barry was born.
Let the games begin.....yeeeehawwww! This election is too much fun!
Will this seek the desk of a clinton appointed judge? Could be just the thing to give it traction.
There is more to this issue than that.
In the ABC August 4th Bill Clinton interview, Bill has a VERY peculiar quote:
In an interview that aired on ABCs World News Tonight Bill Clinton denied that he is angry at Barack Obama, but offered very little in terms of an endorsement and enthusiasm for the Democratic nominee.
Clinton denied that he is still angry, Im not, and I never was mad at Senator Obama. I think everybodys got a right to run for president if he qualifies under the Constitution...
IMHO, it just seems "strange" Bill would say "...IF HE QUALIFIES UNDER THE CONSTITUTION" when being questioned about his support for the Obamassiah.
Off topic, but Drudge is reporting McCain office received an elvelope with white powder substance and death threats.
So is breaking news.
Two McCain offices received envelopes. Denver and Manchester, NH?
You mean to say, he has no standing to sue, and his suit should be thrown out on that ground?
This could be a lot of fun!
LOLOL! Just in time for the convention!
Why no report of this on MSM?
Is this posting a fake?
So is breaking news.
I don’t really think there is.... but if there is a 5 year test after the age of 18 for the mother then maybe.
why did he wait so long?
“The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States. “
I thought you could run for office even if you are a Communist.
Apparently not completely true. FTA:
Should Sen. Obama truly have been born in Kenya, Berg writes, the laws on the books at the time of his birth hold that U.S. citizenship may only pass to a child born overseas to a U.S. citizen parent and non-citizen parent if the former was at least 19 years of age. Sen. Obama's mother was only 18 at the time.
He doesn't seem to know what he's talking about. He talks about "naturalized" American citizenship, but those are the folks who are ineligible, not eligible. I can't tell if he's talking about duel citizenship or not, but if so there's nothing illegal about it. Taking the oath of citizenship requires renunciation of loyalty to any foreign state, but the takers are not required to surrender any foreign passport, which is why so people have what is popularly called "duel citizenship." But I've never seen any evidence Obama ever applied for an Indonesian or Kenyan passport.
I need to seem some actual evidence from this guy.
He's filed suit against Obama and the DNC. Wouldn't the credentials committee be covered under that?
I think there are going to be some things happening at the Democratic National Convention that we haven’t seen in modern history.
Barack Obama has some huge baggage, and there has got to be some movers and shakers who realize that there is a chance, even as poor a candidate as McCain is, the Obama is going to crash and burn in a big way.
I’ll bet there are more than a few asking themselves “Oh my God. What have we done?”
McCain isn’t great, but Obama is a very, very flawed candidate.
Sadly, you are probably right. It will tie up his attention if it isn’t killed. And the more noise it makes, the more doubts will build in the voters. Actually, this is great that it is a Hil supporter before the convention. Saved the McCain team from bringing it up later.
Could you think the His is gearing up for a floor fight for real??
It’s getting to the point that a whole year’s crop would not be enough popcorn.
Yeah...but she has to be 19, eh?
Thank the Maker!
Maybe not.Bergs a “Truther” and McCain can beat Obama. What about Hillary?
The court has no jurisdiction over the DNC's choice for a candidate. The DNC can pick anyone they want to run. Also the person suing hasn't been directly harmed in any way by Obama's candidacy, so he has no grounds to sue in federal court.
IMHO, this case will get thrown out.
Right. Very lawyerly statement out of King Billy Jeff, huh?!
Pretty cool, good timing. With the poll numbers going down for Obama, the hard core ads about his “friends” coming out, Clinton getting a roll call vote at the convention and now a legitimate case being put forward in court as to his constitutional ineligibility to run for office. Id say the SD must be crapping their pants right about now.
I sure thought so!!!
The “test” for the bona fides comes at the Electoral College stage.
Thanks for the reminder. At the time I thought it was a strange statement from an oily politician known to be very careful with his words.
