Obama's aides say he won't appear. That is O K, the Judge will order him to appear, and he will have to comply. He has time for golf, and partying, and vacations. He has time to go to court. Hopefully he won't lie so we don't have to Impeach the moron. He is just stupid enough o try to lie out of it. I wish he wouldn't appear. Then they could keep his name off the ballot, and Newt wins that state. There are 10 other state with the same qualifications. No proof of Natural born status, you cannot run for President in that state. So funny.

CAES, I guess you missed the part where Oily Taint's records request was denied by the Georgia judge because the court lacked "jurisdiction."

You boys are behind the times, Presidents don't go to court.

2012 Georgia primary challenge

Five Georgian citizens, including two represented by Georgia state representative Mark Hatfield and one resident represented by Taitz, filed challenges with Brian Kemp, the Georgia Secretary of State, regarding Obama's inclusion on the ballot.[67] Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi, an administrative law judge, denied Obama's motion to dismiss the challenges and set a hearing for January 26, 2012.[68]

On January 23, Malihi denied Obama's motion to quash a subpoena issued by Taitz to compel him to testify in the case. The judge wrote that "Obama’s court filings fail to show why his attendance would be 'unreasonable or oppressive' or why his testimony would be 'irrelevant, immaterial or cumulative'."[69] On January 25, in a letter to the Georgia Secretary of State, Obama's attorney requested that the proceedings be halted, and indicated that Obama would no longer be participating in the litigation.[70]

At the January 26 hearing, Taitz called herself as a witness and claimed Obama was born in Indonesia. Taitz asked Malihi to find Obama in contempt for failing to appear.

and here's some more on Orly Taitz.......

Taitz received media attention in connection with Obama eligibility questions in late 2008.[86] She was interviewed by co-hosts David Shuster and Tamron Hall on MSNBC on August 3, 2009.[1] Various media outlets described her appearance on the network as an "implosion",[1][87] while Taitz asserted that Shuster, who is Jewish, was a "brownshirt", a charge she would repeat in a phone interview the following week.[19]

Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly called Taitz a "nut". In response, she and pastor James David Manning organized a protest outside Fox News headquarters in New York City in November, 2009, which drew an estimated 15 to 20 attendees.[88] In 2010, artist Dan Lacey produced a widely discussed painting of a nude Orly Taitz after giving birth to an object resembling a pancake; Taitz herself expressed outrage at the painting, and urged Lacey to reveal the identity of his sponsor. Lacey subsequently jokingly "revealed" that he had been funded by George Soros.[89][90]

In April 2011, Lawrence O'Donnell invited Taitz on MSNBC so that she could address Obama's long form birth certificate. When Taitz only wanted to talk about Obama's alleged Selective Service papers and refused to comment on his birth certificate, O'Donnell kicked her off the show, stating: "Look, she's crazy. I invited a crazy person on this show to see if the crazy person...could say something responsive, something human, to the document that was released today...and she wants to play with all of her other kid's toys."

It will be interesting to see what the Judge finally rules in Obama's absence. If he is found in contempt there are 10 other states ready to do the same thing to force him to defend his Natural born status. If he won't
he is off the ballot, and it will have been his choice. He cannot comply. He was probably born in Granny's mud hut in Africa.
