The petition cites the U.S. Constitution's requirement that no one can be sworn into office as president without being a natural born citizen. It also asserts there are questions about Obama's reported Hawaii birth, that the Democrat has refused repeated calls to document his birth, that activist judges have declined to require him to shed light on the issue and that Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed parents whose children were born in other locations to registered the birth there.
(Story continues below)
It calls on all controlling legal authorities to take seriously the matter of where and when and to whom Obama was born and whether he qualifies as a "natural-born American citizen," according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.

“President-elect” Acorn may be an illegal immigrant.
That silly old "Constitution"...it's just an old piece of paper written by some dead white guys, anyway!
Obviously well taught by the 9th Circus and the SCOTUS.
We don’t need no stinking laws.
Why the debate?
SHOW the birth certificate.
Isn’t there a way to get this to a judge that would be favorable to furthering the issue?
That should be a requirement. Won't happen however.
I fear for the republic.

Making it easy for Obamalamadingdong to find and weed out his political enemies.
Like anybody posting on this forum.
Well, you'll know what happened to me, if I suddenly stop pos
My guess is there isn't one who has the guts. And even if there were he would be overturned by another court.
Freedom doesn't die with thunderous applause. It dies with a whimper.
I’d hold out hope though maybe the pessimists are correct.
This is something that I’d find hard to envision that so much of the country would just throw their hands up and say “big deal” or “we can’t do anything about it.”
It’s a sorry episode alright.
When all is said and done the guy is a puss. I'm too pissed off and old to care.
Just because you think it’s impossible to win this, doesn’t mean you are right.
Look how long it took until Bill Clinton was forced to face his accusers. And Clinton was impeached.
Look how long it took for Watergate to catch up with Nixon.
And Nixon resigned.
WE CAN NEVER GIVE UP!!!
I have had to show my birth certificate many times - most recently to secure employment, register to vote, and to apply for GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT. Acorn should have to do the same, if there is any doubt about his “natural-born” status. If this legal question is not settled in time, the Electoral College could make Hillary, or any one else, the President. Wouldn’t that be a screamer?!
Already there’s been articles about the gold mine for lawyers. To wit, all acts by President Obama that adversely affect anyone could be challenged in court.
Maybe not by our government, but something will be done. Count on it.
He he made his two terms in spite of that. Now most of his minions including Hillary are in Obama's cabinet. Until the sheep wake up we are screwed.

That's your second downer post to the thread. You just feeling bad about this, or are you trying to bring us all down?
Its not right, but that's the way it is.
well I’m old too but I’ll quit caring when I draw my last breath. Too many people have died for our freedom.
Freedom doesn't die with thunderous applause. It dies with a whimper.
Wow. Three for three on this thread, so far. You're a real ray of sunshine there, Bart.
Tell me... do you have any solutions to offer, or are you going to continue to tell us how everything's lost?
I don't want to bring anyone down. I'm just facing reality. But I will give you a brite note. Obama is Cater all over but worse. Carter only had one term because people figured out he was bumbling idiot.
“Already theres been articles about the gold mine for lawyers. To wit, all acts by President Obama that adversely affect anyone could be challenged in court.”
Correct and the poster who posted the Thesaurus is as well. There will be endless litigation here and I don’t see how he can play the victim when this is such a commonly asked for document of so many people and in fact he is victimizing people. After this, if he goes into power, he can be taken to court for fraud and much more.
Maybe Obama’s economic plan to cut unemployment is to make jobs for lawyers.
Only gonna happen if you sit there and allow the vampires to suck out your fighting spirit.
Personally, I tell them all to FOAD. It ain't over til it's over. Read into that what you will.
Both of you may be pessimistic, but this isn’t over. It may take a while.
And it is gaining momentum in spite of the MSM trying to squelch it, in spite of Google suppressing searches, in spite of Factcheck.org publishing a forged birth certificate, in spite of Hussein’s 800 Million.
Why don’t you go to Daily KOS and post your comments there...they will be delighted to read them.
"Can we have a President of the United States who has never proven to the country that he is eligible under the qualifications of the Constitution?"
Then why don't you do us red-blooded patriots a favor and crawl off to wait for the Obot Schutzstaffel, instead of posting your morose bullshit here?
Two cases are already in SCOTUS’s bailiwick (Berg and Donofrio). A third (Wrotnowski) has landed and been rejected by Justice Ginsburg, but it is being punted over to Judge Scalia.
We may have a landmark ruling before the end of the year - What constitute’s a “natural born citizen”.
No need for insults. I wish the little turd could be exposed. I don't set my expectations to high. That prevents disappointment in most cases.
Bart. Go read some history on the American Revolution for a while. It'll rekindle your sense of fighting spirit and hope for our future.
That's what we need right now. Not defeatism. There would never have been an America, if the colonists had succumbed to your mindset.
Do it. It'll really help you get over this.
Where do you get off? I'm probably more red blooded than you. When you can't face reality and deal with it from there your head is up your backside. I hate the fact Obama ever got elected. But I won't let anyone pump sunshine up my skirt.
Justice Thomas recommended the Donofrio case for conference on Dec 5 (10 days before the electoral college meets to cast its votes). Four of the 9 justices at the private conference must vote in favor of further proceedings. One assumes a quick, emergency hearing should four agree.
Well, if you just wanted to mention Obama, why didn't you just call him by name? LOL
Their ignorance is going to cost us all.
You'll have to do better than that if you want to suck the fighting spirit out of me.
Why not just turn yourself in to the Obot SS now, and get it over with? Leave the rest of us to rally 'round the flag.
Quite the contrary. They faced reality and acted accordingly.
If Obama or any of his acolytes were reading your comments, he’d be emboldened. Is that what you want?? Frankly, I’ve had it up to here with appeasers. We need to start letting these people know how angry they’re making us, and if you’re not angry, you should be. Your kind of ‘lie back and enjoy’ it talk Bart is what has allowed them to get away with so much in the past. I want things to change. I don’t want the left to keep winning, and this is one issue where they will not win.
Reality? Reality is what you and I decide it is, Bart. The Founders made a choice in the face of a perceived insurmountable "reality", but look at what they accomplished.
It is our duty as Americans to uphold and defend that document that many of them gave their lives and fortunes for.
I'd rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.
Spoken like a true patriot. Thank you.
blackbart.223 is right. I understand the need for optimism but the courts have consistently thrown out these cases and I suspect they will do so again. The constitution is being ignored, the laws are being ignored, campaign finance laws are being selectively applied, election day fraud is now unremarkable. The list goes on.
This is getting bad and yeah, Obama being a Carter part deux would be good news. It could get far, far worse and too many of the little snots worshipping at their masters feet would do anything he asked.
I bet not even 5% of the population has even heard of this birth certificate controversy and of that percent most dismiss it as ramblings of right wing nuts.
I'd say about 2% at best.
