Recall, the lower court judge had these nuggets of wisdom in his ruling:
The issue of the Presidents citizenship was raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by Americas vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obamas two-yearcampaign for the presidency, but this plaintiff wants it resolved by a court.HOLLISTER v. SOETORO - New filings - PETITION for Hearing en Banc, MOTION to publish (FR)
Many people, perhaps as many as a couple of dozen, feel deeply about this issue.

Where are all of the AFTER-BIRTHERS today?
OK what does this mean?
Our former senator from FL, the “Honorable” Mel Martinez, had the cojones to write me something very similar about Obozo’s eligibility. Only he cited the ELECTION of ‘08 as the crucial vetting process.
He made it sound a bit like jury nullification, which could legally permit the acquittal of a clearly guilty axe murderer.
I really don’t think that Mel liked being senator anyway. Constituents like me made him decide to quit, I think.
And 60% of another one I saw had “questions” about his eligibility.
Is this the reason for all the “birther” stories in the past week? Maybe the Wise Latina or the lesbian Justice tipped off Obama this was going to make its way onto the SC calendar. I don’t happen to believe in coincidence.
And what action can the Justices take at Conference?
Huh? Which case is this? I thought Mario’s case was teh best and the last hope.
Who is this ‘Soerto’ guy?
I think a lot of American would like to know
Is this why he was forced to give up his law licence? or else be DISBARRED for filing a false affidavit that he never used another name?
They will decide whether or not to hear the case. It takes 4 justices to say yes. Otherwise it goes into the circular file.
It seems like 2-3 cases made it that far about 2 years ago. They got tossed immediately.
That was the subject of this possibly apochryphal Scalia quote(at a party): “What can I do? It takes 4.”
Probably means it is going nowhere. They will look at it a decide to pass on it.
Orly’s on the 7th.
Hemenway’s on the 14th.
It’s getting interesting.
The Supremes won’t touch this with a 10-foot pole: they recall all too well the grief they got over the 2000 election, and they feel as stated by Martinez, that the elections WERE the vetting process.
Looking forward, we need to change the laws so that these things are settled BEFORE the elections.
It would only take one major state making it law: my own Texas, for example.
You don't have to scroll down too far to find them, including NS.
Like the good old days!
The question is not whether Obama is an American citizen.
The question is whether is a NATURAL BORN citizen.
There is no question that he is not a natural born citizen, becasue his father was not an AMerican citizen at the time of Obama’s birth. Therefore, he does not meet the Constitutional test of eligibility for the President of the United States.
And considering the damage he has doen and contoinues to inflict on the nation we love, he needs to be bounced out of office ASAP.
Are we a nation of law, or of men?
American needs a reset, before this nation goes down the tubes entirely. And that is the sole purpose of the group of Commie clowns in this Administration—to bring America down to the level of every other second rate country in the world.
After all, American exceptionalism is such a passe concept./s
I'd say its a lot more than a couple dozen.
Here I am!
