Supreme Court may disqualify Obama in December

18 posts in this topic

I have a Republican acquaintance who will talk your ear off about how Obama was born in Kenya, how ACORN registered millions of illegal aliens and how Obama refused to disclose the source of his campaign funds (much of which she says came from other countries and therefore should have disqualified him from the race). I'm sure there are a dozen more conspiracy theories out there, but I think they're very poor attempts to avoid the reality that McCain was a bad choice (even out of the candidates available) and that's the reason he lost.

Folks, it's not over yet. Obama's status as a natual born U.S. citizen is in dispute, and it has nothing to do with his birth certificate. If the SCOTUS backs this, he can't become POTUS.

I've blogged about it here: http://poison-keyboard.com/blog/?p=36

In the very unlikley event this happens, get your guns ready ~ think Rodney King/LA riots x 1 million.

If this issue does get to the USSC, huge "If", IMHO, I'd rather the Court abolish the natural citizen prerequisite.

Of all the things that make Obama unqualified to be President, that's the least important.

It is also untrue. See Snopes.com (link) and FactCheck.org (link).

Sure, but it's still a reason. And even if this country only gets off on a technicality, I'll take it.

Um, Betsy, did you actually read what I wrote? I said, "it has nothing to do with his birth certificate." This is about Barrack's father being a Kenyan citizen at the time of his birth. And unless this is a fake, Justice Thomas took it seriously enough to bring it to the attention of the rest of the SCOTUS.

Absolutely. McCain was not just bad, he was horrendous. I did vote for him on the lesser of the two evils theory, but I was not in the least bit disappointed that he lost.

Actually, the same guy pressing to disqualify Obama claims that McCain isn't technically eligible either. So who knows at this point.

The Court cannot abolish a requirement of the Consitution. Only a Constitutional Amendment can change it.

It would certainly be a good thing if the Marxist bastard were disqualified.

However, that's not likely to happen.

I'm hoping, however, that people will continue digging up the dirt on this depraved scumbag:

for instance, what if a videotape surfaced of his mentor the Reverend Wright "god-damning" America, with the Obamessiah in the audience, cheering?

Weather Underground terrorist Ayers has recently admitted in print that the Messiah is a "family friend" of his (i.e. the Messiah lied).

I hope the bastard will be plagued, wherever he goes, by protestors calling him a socialist and friend of terrorists; that at every press conference someone will have the guts to stand up and ask, "How do you think the families of those killed by the Weather Underground feel about your getting your start in politics with the help of Weather Underground terrorists?"

The Supreme Court did not step in and stop Bill and Hillary Clinton from being "Co-Presidents" nor did Congress, but they did it any way.

Has anyone read retired FBI agent Gary Aldrich's book Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House? Even though Gary Aldrich claims that he was apolitical, he seems to stand for America and it's Constitution, and in his book he demonstrates that the Clintons did not.

I would have been shocked otherwise.

And, frankly, I am a huge fan of the natural born citizen requirement.

More serious is the move to legislate away the Constitutional requirement for the electoral college.

The National Popular Vote legislation would require each state Elector to vote for the candidate who won the national popular vote – regardless of how his particular state voted. A similar proposal would require that the Electors’ votes be proportioned to represent the percentage each candidate received. Either method would result in changing the Constitution through legislation, and bypassing the Constitutional amendment process. But it would do much, much more. It would give the presidency to the candidate chosen by urban population centers, and effectively disenfranchise small, rural states.
