The previous posters that responded to your post appear to "have forgotten" to mentioned this large salient point.

(citing from the Brief): Defendants would have this Court believe, hold, rule, and accept that utter and complete inaction, stony silence even by the Vice‐President of an opposing party sitting as President of the Senate during the certification of the electoral vote to Congress pursuant to 3 U.S.C. §15, is and must be sufficient to satisfy the people that the President has met the Constitutional qualifications for office. "


Not exactly. But I suspect that the DOJ would have the court believe (and, thus, hold, rule, and/or accept) that
(a) the enabling statute requires any objections to be submitted in writing; and yet
(b) any such written objection would have been made part of the official Congressional Record; and,
(c) no Representative or Senator called for a point of order in order to properly lodge their objection; and
(d) no Representative or Senator has filed suit claiming that they filed (or wished to file but were prevented from doing so) a written objection that was not properly considered by the Vice President and/or Congress;

Therefore, there is no evidence to suggest that the Constitution was not followed in this respect.

Now, if Taitz (or any other lawyer pursuing the eligibility actions) could find even just one single representative or senator who could affirm that the Rep/Senator was not permitted to file an objection, that person would have standing to sue, and the case would be proceeding post haste.

I suspect Orly and her associate lawyers disagree with you here. The President of the Senate has to call for objections for which he did not. This country has been kowtowed by PC'ness and Obama, as has Congressional members. Because no Congress critter didn't file a written objection doesn't mean there were not any.

There was an Ohio member of Congress who did raise his hand as he was about to object, but Cheney ignored him as he ignored to ask Congress for objections.

Now, if Taitz (or any other lawyer pursuing the eligibility actions) could find even just one single representative or senator who could affirm that the Rep/Senator was not permitted to file an objection, that person would have standing to sue, and the case would be proceeding post haste.

Who knows, this case may lead to that.
