Supreme Court Rejects Obama Birth Challenge


www.huffingtonpost.com



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.

All of these challenges are nothing more than an attempt to de-legitimize the Obama presidency before it even begins... just so many sour grapes.

The Hawaii Sec. of State has confirmed the birth certificate is real and that should be that but nnnnooooo.... some die hard's just won't quit.

The supreme court set a dangerous precedent intervening in the 2000 elections and these lawsuits are a direct result of that intervention...

.... they would have to be mad to meddle again. And if they did it would be a disaster for the country...

We cannot be allowed to start settling elections via lawsuit... to do so will be the death of our system.
