I suppose we should all throw common sense out the window just because we're angry at the most powerful man in the United States
He is NOT my president, and never was. He has made it clear on numerous occasions that he is above the law. He needs to answer to the American people. And if not, he needs to be removed from power. His ego absolutely astounds me...!

You are completely clueless. If he doesn't show the MOST that can happen is that he loses his right to be on the ballot. It's not a criminal preceding.
The amount of delusional anti-Obama stuff on this (and every birther thread) is pretty mind-boggling.

Oh, AWESOME! He's setting PRECEDENT! This must mean that WE can just not show up when ordered!
Well, We'll see if He is arrested for contempt... I guess I got excited prematurely.
(Jan. 24, 2011) — As heavily invested as some people are in the myth of Obama’s nativity, there is one thing that they absolutely cannot deny, and that is that “Barack Hussein Obama II” looks absolutely nothing like Barack Hussein Obama, Senior. There is not even a hint of a family resemblance between them. That alone should convince skeptics that something is seriously awry with the myths Obama and his sycophants want us to buy into.
First Posted: 01/24/2012 10:25 am Updated: 01/24/2012 11:54 am The White House appears prepared to ignore a recent ruling by Georgia Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi that would require President Obama to attend a birther hearing in Fulton County, Ga., on Thursday.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney outlined Barack Obama's weekly agenda on Monday, noting that the president is scheduled to hit Las Vegas, Denver and Detroit on Thursday in a whirlwind tour to talk middle class job creation.
That's not likely to sit well with Malihi, who last week rejected an effort by Obama's legal team to quash a subpoena that would require president appear in court that day. The complaint, like many others of its kind, claims Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and therefore can't be president.
Birther queen Orly Taitz, who represents one of the complainants, is also likely to be unhappy with the administration's apparent decision to not take Malihi's order seriously.
Over the weekend, Taitz predicted that the hearing would "be 100 times bigger than Watergate."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution spoke with attorney Melvin Goldstein, who is not involved with the case, to get some insight on what might happen if the administration simply turned a blind eye to the court order. While unprecedented, he said Malihi could possibly refer the matter to a Fulton County Superior Court judge, who could then decide whether to enforce the subpoena. If necessary, Goldstein suggested, the judge could hold the president in contempt.
DON’T GET EXCITED–YET – Ga. judge orders president to appear at hearing. Right on cue, a story appears which will keep the Obama eligibility issue in the news. This time, the story’s over whether the President will appear in a Georgia courtroom. A word of caution: don’t get your hopes up. This president hasn’t been held accountable for anything else, why on earth would he pay attention to a Georgia judge?
“An Obama campaign aide says any attempt to involve the president personally will fail and such complaints around the country have no merit.”
Of course, the Obama aide is engaged in rank speculation. None of the dozens of lawsuits filed over Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility to remain president have EVER been heard on the merits of the case. Obama’s legal machinery has triumphed through a combination of technical issues, threats and superior money power to make the case all go away.
IS THIS GUY FOR REAL?! as a lawyer and PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES he going to IGNORE THE RULE OF LAW?! i should expect no less from his HIGHNESS, the man that effectively DECLARED HIMSELF KING.
So if he doesn’t show up, the judge should sign a warrant and dispatch the State Patrol to go get him, or, find him in default, and not eligible to be on the ballot in Georgia. And if that’s the case, think how many Republican governors would be willing to keep him off their states ballots. I hope that happens, but we do seem to have an overubundance of gutless politicians that are probably too afraid to do the right thing.
As was the case with President Nixon, President Clinton eventually accepted his and his office's place under the rule of law. Since United States v. Nixon, executive branch claims of immunity from the normal processes of the American legal system have been tempered by the fact that the constitutional demands of due process of law and justice are likely to outweigh claims of executive immunity from subpoenas.

Anyone who tries to arrest the POTUS will have to get past the SS to get to the POTUS and then past the SS again with the POTUS in custody to bring him to the court in Georgia. Never gonna happen. Anyone who tries will end up in the custody of a US Marshall or worse.edit on 1/23/2012 by dubiousone because: (no reason given)
As I’ve recently posted, I still don’t think that Obama will be making a personal appearance in front of Judge Malihi at any time from January 26, 2012 or forward, and I don’t think there’s really a need for that to occur anyway.
I personally agree with attorney Van Irion and his pursuit of this issue: nobody needs Obama to show up in any Court in order to prove he is ineligible for office. There are really technically three ways to make a case against Obama’s eligibility:
Obama’s clear and unequivocal admission that his father was always a Kenyan citizen, coupled with:
Other cases that seem to suggest that natural born citizenship is upheld only with two American (though not necessarily natural-born) citizens; and/or:
Formally presenting Obama’s birth certificate to the Court.
Point number three is the biggy here, in my opinion. In theory, such documentation could then be formally questioned in Court, and a final determination could then be sent back to GA’s SoS.
