A California attorney lobbying the U.S. Supreme Court for a review of Barack Obama's qualifications to be president confronted the chief justice yesterday with legal briefs and a WND petition bearing names of over 325,000 people asking the court to rule on whether or not the sitting president fulfills the Constitution's "natural-born citizen" clause.

According to Orly Taitz, the attorney who confronted Chief Justice John Roberts at a lecture at the University of Idaho, the judge promised before the gathered crowd that he would, indeed, read and review the briefs and petition.

Obama could easily save these people alot of time, energy and money if he'd just reveal his birth certificate.

What is he hiding??

You would be idiot enough to think that's what he was referring to.

He was referring to the legal briefs.

I've been torn on this issue. Would I show you my birth certificate, or tell you to get bent. Then again, I'm not the President.
I have the copy he released as my desktop back ground at the moment. I was hoping that looking at it would give me the 'AH HA' moment, but no.
My wife on the other hand, sat next to me the other day, sipped her coffee and declared it a fake. Apparently when you photo copy a (newer) birth certificate big bubble letters show in the copy declaring it void.
Wish I had known that so I could claim the 'AH HA'. Before someone blasts me with his wouldn't be that new... It's a copy from after 11/01. There appears to be something about 2007 on the reverse side but I don't know.
If it did turn out he isn't qualified, would we really see him thrown out.
Who would be President, McCain, as Obama's whole campaign would be null right?
What an interesting show that would be, what a terrible time for it to happen.

If this "fake" certificate is found to be near fake (and it won't be), this country will have seen nothing yet. I don't like to use the fear mongering that some of our more gappy puddinghead friends and others like to use, but this country has been in picnic mode up until then.

It will be great for those who will want to gloat - national and home grown terrorists but I will feel sorry and sad for our country.

If by some chance it is discovered that his certificate is a Certificate of Live Birth with a foreign birth certificate attached, and Obama is decertified to be President - I don't see it being an end of world situation for America.

One - Biden would be named acting President. I say acting - because I believe the citizens of this country will demand a special election.

I know - you will say that they won the election and Biden as VP takes over if the President is removed from office. That would be true in a normal election situation. If Obama were to be found ineligible and defrauded thecitizens of this country - then the election becomes null and void.

Both parties would have to decide who to run for the special election. I doubt the Republicans would forward McCain again, and I doubt he would be willing to stand forth. No doubt Clinton would claim the rightful role to run the Democratic end, though many would say Biden has the stronger claim.

The important thing here is that - despite the major disruption, it would be something that can be fixed, and America will get through it and beyond it.

Anything that Obama signed into law would of course be reversed and voided.

If anything - Americans will have been awoken that the two party system is broken, and that a need for major election reform and a return to a Constitution based election law. ALL parties should have equal access, and the BEST candidate regardless of party have a chance to be elected.

It's an interesting case and one I thought would be harmful if ever proven but at this point, with Obama ruining everything he touches, I support any means to remove this idiot from office.

He'll go down as the worst ever.

What people? the vast majority of Americans are very satisified of his qualifications of being a Natural Born Citizen.

What people? those whom were voting with the opposition? Ha....

By more than 10 Million votes the American People were comfortable with Obama being a U.S Citizen.

I would bet the Justices of the Supreme Court are very familar with the provision governing Children of American Citizens born in other countries and there "Rights" under the Constitution of the United States.

People are getting bogged down in semantics. If anyone was unqualified to be president it was the last dope who was in office, even if he was legally there (which is debatable).

You people are sick in the head. These idiots had two years to investigate Obama's origin of birth, why now? I hope Obama does a little "investigating" on his own, regarding his accusers.

LOL!!! More fantasy by the far right lunatics.

And the "news source" either mistook the Chief Justice's polite response to Mr Taitz for "acceptance" of the documents, or it deliberately distorted the incident to create the illusion of progress for this ridiculous and frivolous argument.

Poor Mr Taitz appears to lack the sense to know he needs to file a credible case in court, not ambush a Justice in an outside setting. Nor does a case start with the Supreme Court, rather Mr Taitz begins in a lower court where he demonstrates he has standing as well as a legitimate matter.

Will the Chief Justice now need to recuse himself for getting involved with a party to the matter before the case is filed? Doubtful. The Justice likely was being polite to somebody who might well be an unstable individual. Never know about these far right wingnuts spouting insanity.

Let's hope Mr Taitz didn't check the trash cans on his way out, to see if his documents ended up in the circular file, where the courts have deposited them thus far.

What's Your Evidence?

The site is still soliciting evidence. Orly needs to fill them in. Though I wonder why she hasn't already?

The YouTube tape and the Berg v. Obama affidavit ends premature; the audio recording itself has much more on it, and here is the real “smoking gun”. The full tape contains a clarification where Sarah Obama makes it clear that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, in America. The full version is available here, and the clarification starts around 5 minutes into the tape. At some point, the tape was edited to remove the clear statement from Sarah Obama that her grandson was born in Hawaii.

However, FactChecker.org says it obtained Obama's actual birth certificate and that the document was indeed real. The site discredited some of the claims of Internet bloggers, such as that the certificate as viewed in a scanned copy released by Obama's campaign lacked a raised seal. FactChecker.org also established that many of the alleged flaws in the document noted by bloggers were caused by the scanning of the document.

A separate WND investigation into Obama's birth certificate utilizing forgery experts also found the document to be authentic. The investigation also revealed methods used by some of the bloggers to determine the document was fake involved forgeries, in that a few bloggers added text and images to the certificate scan that weren't originally there.

And for the factcheck naysayers...

Therefore, the “connection” between Obama and Factcheck.org is as follows:

In the 1990s, Obama served on the board of an organization that received funding from a foundation, which

(a) was established and funded by a couple, the surviving member of whom has expressly, publicly, endorsed McCain; and

(b) now provides 100s of millions of dollars of grants to a wide variety of public interest organizations, including the organization (APPC) that runs Fact.check.org .

Therefore, Berg's attempts to discredit Factcheck.org by asserting that it is owned by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge are demonstrably inaccurate.

Do you see all of those links in my posts? They are called "sources". They are used to validate assertions. My assertion being that birth certificate wing nut assertions have no validity.
