It would apear that Obama wont be on the balot in Alabama's primaries. The timing of this is just too perfect. He wont even have time to dispute this from what I get. And it comes just days after the Georgia ruling to deny dismissal.

I do find it kind of funny though, that the southern states are the first to get serious about his eligibility in court.

An Alabama Court has announced that it will hear arguments as to whether Barack Hussein Obama II is in fact eligible to appear on the State Presidential Primary Ballot.

State primary? Obama is the only Democrat registered, no need for a state primary.

So who cares?

if he's ineligible in Alabama, then, even as a right in, the votes wont count.

Yeah, I was going to vote for Obama in the Pirmary, too!


These stories about states and eligibility are really nuts. I'm all for a candidate proving his or her eligibility on a federal level (which Obama has done, by the way) but these state election cases are just more fodder for Orly.

I think they do, but the current POTUS will be the candidate beings that hes the only Democrac running. I believe they can still put someone else up if theparty wanted to, but it would be stupid to. Its already late in the game for that. unless Obamas eligibility is questioned in enough states to keep him off the ballots, then hes going to be their nominee.

That means that if someone in Alabama decides to run as a Democrat and if that person is the only one, he will be on the ballot in Nov. against the Repub. Obama is losing electoral votes in each state that is challenging his eligibilty and not allowing him on the ballot.

this ruling is giving the people power. the judges are basically ruling that, no matter who you are, you can still be brought to court by average every day citizens. remarkable if you as me.

I know i would be mad too if i was running for prez and had to show alabama my birth certificate, but he has many aides helping him out so it shouldnt be too tough, unless his birth certificate only works on a federal level. Maybe its all one big Orlyeian conspiracy

Hmm, well that makes no sense. Didn't he register before, when he got elected as President? But, I guess after all the controversy over his BC, now they won't let him. At least one state is making sure their eligible.

I agree with others here.

The Real ID act requires that I prove who I am to get a state ID, drivers license, etc. I have to submit an official state birth certificate that is notarized with the raised seal of the state in question. If I am subject to the REAL ID Act then why isn't the president of the very nation who's laws I am required to follow subject to the same laws?

I can't get an ID without this and a million other forms of proof, but Obama can get into the White House without this proof?

Those saying he has given proof are fools. A digital copy of ANYTHING is not proof of the original. Whether or not there is a conspiracy here I do not know - but I do know that if the requirements for the mundane are so strict, the president or a potential president should have to adhere to even more stringent and transparent guidelines. This man is running for the most powerful position on Earth and we're going to let him prove his eligibility with photoshop!?

That's no joke. You have to have your BC not a copy, another form of ID, and some mail. Just for me to get my Drivers license. I already had a state ID but wasn't good enough.

So what does this say about the states that are now doing this? If they allowed it before. Are they trying to fix a previous error? So are they pretty much admitting to being wrong? Or making a mistake?

Actually, this is another "Orly Taitz" type lawsuit. Obama is NOT off the ballot at this time -- a judge in Jefferson County is preparing to hear one man's lawsuit to keep him off the ballot.

This is not for the state of Georgia... this is just in Jefferson County. It's not at a state court at this time. Orly Taitz is... ah "on the case" and is attempting to delay the judge's ruling on whether the case should be dismissed. Democrats want the case (already delayed since December) to be resolved on Monday.



Monday's hearing was set to consider Kennedy's request for Lee to dismiss Hendershot's suit, which Kennedy's lawyers have called frivolous. They also have asked Lee to order Hendershot to show why his suit should not be dismissed.

In the court papers posted on Taitz's web site, Hendershot said he needed time to confer with Taitz about his case and to prepare to defend against Kennedy's attempts to get the suit dismissed.

Hendershot has said his suit is part of an informal effort in several Southern states to block Obama from the ballots there. He contends Obama is ineligible to serve as president because he is not a natural-born citizen.

Hendershot claims he has "staggering" evidence that Obama is using a forged birth certificate and a fake social security number. He has not had a lawyer until today


So, unless he has something other than the tired old documents which have not been sufficient evidence in every other case Taitz has brought, I think this is going to be a non issue. Except, perhaps, for Taitz, who is surely getting paid to represent these people.

Wardk28 your profile pic just made me poop myself.. That dude has huanted my brain since i saw Phantasm as a kid.
But anyone else see this as a ploy by the white house to start some race related incidents?

I doubt this will have much impact on the final outcome of the Presidential race (unfortunately). What it does do is present a message to a sitting President that literally sued Alabama in court over an attempt to do his job after he refused to do it.

'King' Obama apparently has some very warped ideas about how the US works. He seems to think:
  • He gets to unilaterally decide which laws he enforces
  • He gets to decide which companies succeed and which fail
  • He gets to tell states which laws they will and will not enforce
  • He can do whatever he chooses without Congressional involvement
  • He has carte blanche to spend taxpayer contributions however he chooses
  • He has no obligation to follow any laws
  • His words alone are evidence of facts

... and I vehemently disagree with all of the above.

As a proud citizen of Alabama, I wholeheartedly support this message we are sending, and wholeheartedly denounce the following one:

"But... when Congress refuses to act, and as a result hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have a obligation as President to do what I can without them. I've got an obligation to act on behalf of the American people, and I'm not going to stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people we were elected to serve."

He's the only dem running. No need for a 'primary'. Unless Hillary gets her act together and she teams up with Bill Richardson and they force one. (That 'd be great) But I'm not seeing it, it's too late I think. So .. no primary, right??

He, like I, has a valid drivers' license.

That means he's had to present acceptable proof of residency and citizenship for his whole adult lifetime. There's no waiver for your drivers' license if you're President (I suppose the license can expire since you really don't drive yourself) but I suspect you'll find he has a valid drivers' license and that he presented the same proofs as you and I presented.

He would also have had to carry insurance on his cars ever since he was able to drive and support himself, and that also requires proof of identity

Thanks for the replies, never had mods reply in a thread before


I too think this is going to amount to nothing. But, it does send a good message that the people are gaining more of a voice. Slowly.
