Fight To Reveal Obama's Birth Certificate Continues
Evening Bulletin ^ | 11/9/08 | John Connelly

Posted on 11/10/2008 12:19:47 PM PST by pissant

Two of the plaintiffs in court cases against Sen. Barack Obama, the president-elect, are working to move their cases forward before his presidential inauguration.

Philip J. Berg, the attorney who filed suit against Mr. Obama challenging him to produce his original birth certificate to prove he meets the constitutional requirements to serve as U.S. president. Mr. Berg filed a Writ of Certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court late in October, in an effort to force Mr. Obama to produce the document.

Accordingly, the U.S. Supreme Court has said that Mr. Obama, the DNC and all co-defendants are to respond to the writ, on or before Dec. 1.

The judge in Mr. Berg's original case ruled that Mr. Berg does not have standing to enforce the constitutional requirements on a presidential candidate. Mr. Berg appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court.

I didn’t know Berg had any appeals left but I think this is a fight worth having, regardless of the chances. I guess we should send letters to our electors in our state pronto.

If BO is disqualified before the electors meet, they would be able to vote for anyone who is constitutionally qualified for POTUS. Might be fun! There would still be 365 D electors. But it wouldn’t have to be Biden. Might be HRC or whoever they like. If BO gets the boot after the electors have voted, then yes, we have a Biden succession scenario. Oh, BTW, if no one has 270 electoral votes for POTUS, the House gets to elect one. More fun!

“Somehow, Pissant, I just don’t see this thing coming to fruition. I hope I’m wrong though.”

I agree.
In the words of a wetback, “I don’t need no damn stinkin papers”.

Sad times for the new USSA.

If it were ever proven that Obama is not a natural born citizen, the Democrat and media spin would be that our evil Constitution is inherently racist and needs to be changed (or be retroactively interpreted more “more broadly”) — and not one word of outrage that Obama deliberately defrauded the American people while by running for President while knowing all along that he is ineligible.

Obama’s credibility and character would not be called into question, except by those few who care about the Constitution, and those people would be demonized and marginalized as racist, reactionary kooks.

For the record, at this point I do not think it can be stated with assurance that Obama is not a natural-borne citizen. But when it would be such a simple matter to release the actual certified birth certificate, his refusal to do so, and his willingness to hire lawyers to prevent having to do so, sure do suggest he is hiding something. And when you consider that his Kenyan grandmother claims to recall his birth in Kenya, it’s awfully hard to take his assurances at face value.

Unless of course he was found to be lying. Then it will matter.

He lied almost every time he opened his mouth. It didn't matter.

Different animals. For $20, Obama can get a certified copy of his BC. Instead, he has spend 10s of 1000s of dollars to fight its release in court.

It wouldn’t matter now if they did. No court is going to remove him from office and even if they did we get Biden.

Think ahead two more steps:

Biden needs a Veep. Who better than the runner-up at the DNC convention, Hillary!™ Clinton.

Biden is mortal.

Who appointed the judges? That would be Bill Clinton, wouldn't it?

If he was officially found to be ineligible before inauguration, you wouldn't. It would, I think, be unprecedented, but since the vice-president takes over in case the president is incapacitated, Biden couldn't be sworn in as president if he had not yet been inaugurated as vice-president. Besides, if Obama were revealed to be ineligible, one could make a good argument that the whole ticket must be eliminated since vice-presidential candidates are chosen by the presidential candidate and in this election only McCain/Palin was the top electoral choice with a legitimate president and vice-president.

True, but he did not create forged documents on most subjects.

LOL! Somehow I don't think that will be a problem for The One. Lots of friends we haven't met.

"It wouldn’t matter now if they did. No court is going to remove him from office and even if they did we get Biden."

Normally in this situation I would suggest that not being eligible would provide an opportunity for Dems to dump him if this gets even worse; but there is the race issue.

I’ll take Biden over Obama. He’d be much easier to attack and the MSM would have egg on its face. It would be a major victory politically.

"I believe the Dems would amend the Constitution in record time..."

These Dems probably think they can. Fortunately for us, they still must pass 2/3 vote in both the House and Senate, and get 3/4 of the state legislatures to agree. It ain't ever gonna happen.

If the president-elect fails to qualify, the vice president-elect is inaugurated as president.

Accordingly, the U.S. Supreme Court has said that Mr. Obama, the DNC and all co-defendants are to respond to the writ, on or before Dec. 1.

This is a most puzzling situation. On one hand, the claims that Obama has a certified birth certificate in Hawaii seem to have credibility. Obama was born in Hawaii ... end of story.

On the other hand the secrecy and reticence surrounding the very simple request that Mr. Obama produce his birth certificate is unsettling. Given my low opinion of the integrity of Marxists, I would like to see this issue come to closure before the election is certified.

But we did fight back with Proposition 8...and won.

...And we are talking about Obama here, not any state initiative. His operatives will do all they can to squelch this thing...I mean look at who he's tapped for his Chief of Staff for Pete's sake!

How about an injunction and/or class action suit against the Electoral College (when the time comes) for not doing their due diligence to assure the elected official they are certifying actually complies with the constitutional requirements to hold office?

The MSM told me not to worry about this and to grin and bear it and deal with the fact (or strong suspicion) that we have a phoney being sworn in.

Well, that sucks, but it could be really, really entertaining.
