Supreme Court Refuses to Consider Obama’s Citizenship Status
So much for the constitution!
Obama has steadfastly refused to offer proof of his citizenship to show he meets the few constitutional requirements to be President and now the Supreme Court has refused to do its constitutional duty.
Will it be Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2012 for the GOP? Why not? It’s now apparent that none of the 3 branches of government are willing to abide by their oath to uphold the Constitution and demand a candidate actually meets the qualifications.
It seems a simple thing to produce the evidence. Most Americans have had to show proof of citizenship often enough. The President-elect’s refusal to do so only compounds the suspicion that something is amiss.
Congratulations President-elect Obama! Your first usurpation of the Constitution succeeded.
Court won’t review Obama’s eligibility to serve
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. Donofrio says that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen,” one of the requirements the Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.
Donofrio also contends that two other candidates, Republican John McCain and Socialist Workers candidate Roger Calero, also are not natural-born citizens and thus ineligible to be president.
At least one other appeal over Obama’s citizenship remains at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and the Hawaii secretary of state has confirmed. Berg says Obama also may be a citizen of Indonesia, where he lived as a boy. Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg’s lawsuit.
