Skip to comments.Scalia: You need 4 votes for Obama eligibility case
Posted on 03/10/2009 6:35:13 PM PDT by hope
A lawyer lobbying the U.S. Justice Department and the U.S. Supreme Court for a review of Barack Obama's qualifications to be president says a key conservative justice has hinted that another conservative justice has been voting against hearing the dispute. According to Orly Taitz, a California attorney working through her Defend Our Freedoms Foundation on several cases challenging Obama, said she was presented with an opportunity to ask a question of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia yesterday. The issue of Obama's eligibility has been raised before the Supreme Court at least four times already but has yet to be given a single hearing. Cases have been brought by Taitz, Philip Berg, Cort Wrotnowski and Leo Donofrio.

I’m guessing Roberts.
No real reason, just a gut feeling.
I’m guessing all 9, including Scalia.
You might be on to something there....
To me, Scalia and Thomas appear to be the firmest constitutionalsts.
Read the Unruh article before you spittle something else, n00b ... Scalia stated ‘need to get a fourth’ justice onboard.
Nice summary, IAC.
“Im guessing Roberts.”
No, that’s not what Scalia said. Scalia merely stated a Supreme Court procedural fact. He never said there were three justices, or even one justice, in support of this petition. But please continue spewing trash, Mr. Internet Tough Guy.
Roberts initiated the meeting with obama and Alito was missing. I don't recall any comments from Alito concerning obama.
I can't imagine a US Supreme Court Justice dispensing legal advice advice to a potential plaintiff at his book signing. He has to know that this very act would be used against him as a conflict of interest. Furthermore what type of lawyer would publicize this info knowing at the very least it could be used as grounds for recusal. To believe her story is to believe Scalia to be an incompetent justice who decides which cases to hear from customers at a book signing.
This thing is unraveling faster than anyone ever expected, including me. I knew this guy was going to be a complete incompetent, dangerously so, but didn’t believe it would come out in the first month or even 90 days. Within 6 months he will be universally reviled. My guess is you know Bambi will be leaving the WH when Biden has a sudden relapse and has to leave the VP because of health reasons. The only dim out there who has the slightest credibility is perhaps Bayh. He will be installed and Bambi will be out in 60 days thereafter. I have no way of knowing this other than my gut. Bambi doesn’t like the job. He is lazy, incompetent, a total narcissist who will not be happy when 90 percent of the population hates him. 57 percent on PMSNBC are already rating him an F. He is going to freak and will be forced from office by the shadowdy hand that really runs things. The only thing standing in their way is Biden. He is unfit to lead or wash the White House toilets, a complete and total bufoon that makes Bambi look like a natural born leader. Bambi will be out by November of 2009.
Bwahahahaha ... nice comeback, n00b!
ping to A good one
Sean Hannity just mentioned the controversy for no apparent reason. He said something along the lines of “He’s an American citizen as far as we know, despite the birth certificate controversy”
I think Scalia and Thomas plus Alito is probably also on board.
“Roberts initiated the meeting with obama and Alito was missing. I don’t recall any comments from Alito concerning obama.”
I believe that Roberts, Thomas, and Scalia have each referred an Obama eligibility case to conference.
Sean Hannity has loads of RINOs and democrats on his show including Sharpton, Lanny Davis and others. I like Pat Caddel who is not an insane lib but a Blue Dog N. FL Dem.
Leo Donofrio will be on a large AM station tomorrow in SE Florida at 3:05 pm EST.
I’m not taking the bait, troll.
Careful there with the personal attacks newbie.
I like Caddel too. For someone who was a miserable failure on the campaign trail his predictions of elections are about as acurate as they come.
Bwahahahahaha ... you’re a hoot, gibson.
I don't know, those hair plugs look like they'd make a natural scrub brush!
And judging from whats on the other side of the brush, it seems that is what he's been doing with it!
Pat will always give you his honest opinion. Straight shooters are a rarity in the democrap sewer.
Back in 2000 he spoke about the “vampires” surrounding the Clintons and even went so far as to name Mcauliff as the worst of the bunch.
You can review my posting history to see my political ideology, but I don’t like being called a “n00b” and I’m not comfortable with being “hazed” into a forum just because I’m a “newbie”. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to PM me.
Alito the only one to keep his nose clean so far?
I say Roberts , he was REAL nervous at the innauguration...
This isn’t about your political ideology. You signed up in January, that makes you a ‘n00b’, and if you don’t like being hazed, you ought to look up a fella by the name of Finley Peter Dunne, who said “politics ain’t beanbag”.
In other words, Welcome to FR. Grow yourself a hide. LOL
Good guy. He is an old time souther Democrat who does not like marxists or screaming lefty loons. I think he did okay writing and creating a TV show. Evening Shade?
I like when Hannity has Ann Coulter with Pat on. They get on well.
Obviously. Roberts and Alito are more in the mold of Rhenquiest (sp? forget it).
I once heard Thomas speak about the importance of adherence to the constitution and the importance of that in ending slavery despite widespread popular opinion among the people.
Does n00b means “newbie”? If that’s the case, this may be just a misunderstanding. To me, “n00b” sounds like some sort of insult.
I know politics ain’t beanbag. That’s why I’m not a politician.
That would be almost too coincidental. That would mark twice in our history that the socialist undermining of the Constitution was enabled by a supposedly conservative turncoat on the Supreme Court named "Roberts". Owen was the first.
Good guess. It's my guess too. I'm also guessing Roberts is waiting for the "right time" to vote yes on one of these cases.
n00b = newbie. I suspect it was all a misunderstanding, which is a remarkable thing WMB, because Freepers very seldom misunderstand each other, in fact I can’t remember the last time anyone misunderstood anything on FR (insert big belly laugh here).
Hey, the night is young, enjoy!
btw, nice FR home page for a ‘n00b’ ;)
I didn’t know what “n00b” meant. I took it to be an insult and that’s why I responded harshly, for which I apologize for.
I don’t know what Tango Sierra means. (I’m really not up to speed with Internet speak).
My instinct was Roberts too. He swore him in, after all.
The pictures of the Obama visit to SCOTUS that I saw showed Justice Thomas always way in the back to stay away from him.
Strange that Hannity brought it up tonight?
TS for short.
