WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth. The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., to intervene in the presidential election.

Misleading headline. The SOC never said that they would not hear this case as of yet. A second case has been picked up for conference this Friday by Justice Scalia. There seems to be new cases being started everyday as well. The issue is gaining steam and the MSM (and the blogosphere) are putting out an avalanche of inaccurate and misleading headlines and news on the issue.

So far one FRer has claimed he actually expected this to go someplace, but that’s it. And I know he wont bet money on it.

Here is my senator’s response to the eligibility issue regarding Obama’s citizenship:

Dear Ms. Marlowe :

Thank you for contacting me regarding Senator Barack Obama’s eligibility to become President. It is good to hear from you.

Article II of the Constitution states that in order to be President, a person must be a natural-born citizen, at least 35 years old, and have resided in the U.S. for at least 14 years. Regardless of the citizenship status of the parents, any person born on U.S. soil is a U.S. citizen.

Senator Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961, which makes him a U.S. citizen and at age 46 he meets the minimum age requirement. He has also resided in the U.S. for at least 14 years. While I do not agree with many of Senator Obama’s policy positions, he does meet the Constitutional requirements to be President of the United States .

Yep. Senator Chambliss’ response was about as lame a response as I could have asked for...

Yep, but reading the local papers and the msm you would think that this is the end of it. They do not mention the other cases in the works. I wonder what they will say about the Rezko/Obama land deal?

I don’t know... Once something gets started against an Illinois politician it’s pretty much a done deal. The miracle is getting charges brought... The MSM isn’t going to be able to hide too much about the case against Blagojevich - unless right now the feds are grilling him for even more information (which they probably are...).

I should’ve added that a lot is dovetailing right now pretty interestingly all around Obama. I don’t think he will get out unscathed.

January 7, 2008 Bill Richardson: Obama’s an Immigrant?

Thomas Lifson, the editor of the American Thinker web site, posted a blog entry December 7 that says New Mexico Governor and Commerce Secretary nominee Bill Richardson made a statement, in Spanish, that “Obama is an immigrant.” The statement was allegedly recorded by French television.

Lifson adds the context of the statement was meant to convey to Hispanics that Obama’s immigrant status meant he (the president-elect) could relate to them.

Lifson tells readers to “Watch the YouTube clip and decide for yourself what on earth the Governor meant,” but there is no link on his site for the YouTube clip he references.

Hussien is qualified .... just look at the cesspool of Chicago politics.

Bribes with land deals, selling senate seats.... if that doesn't qualify him I don't know what does.

Screw the birth certificate, gangsters don't need them.

Obama looks like a worried little boy in the pics from today's news conference...... I think he's in deep shit. I bet Rod Blogvich has some nice stories to tell.
