Obama birth cert saga continues, Obama must reply by 12/1

John P. Connolly | The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin | 11/09/2008

Philip J. Berg, [the attorney who filed suit against Mr. Obama challenging him to produce his original birth certificate to prove he meets the constitutional requirements to serve as U.S. president] filed a Writ of Certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court late in October, in an effort to force Mr. Obama to produce the document.

Accordingly, the U.S. Supreme Court has said that Mr. Obama, the DNC and all co-defendants are to respond to the writ, on or before Dec. 1.

The judge in Mr. Berg’s original case ruled that Mr. Berg does not have standing to enforce the constitutional requirements on a presidential candidate. Mr. Berg appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court.

“I look forward to receiving defendant Obama’s response to the writ and am hopeful the U. S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama. I believe Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of President of the United States.”

Mr. Obama put an electronic photo of a birth certification on his “Fight the Smears” Web site, a document that his critics have found unconvincing. The raised seal and authoritative signature needed to validate the document cannot be seen on the scan. The Obama campaign was unwilling to release the original document to the court when Mr. Berg filed suit in August, choosing instead to argue against Mr. Berg’s standing.

fyi everybody….

I myself have mixed feelings about the outcome of this now that Obama has won. For the life of me, I cant understand why he would hesitate, you’d think it’d be the easiest thing in the world to produce your birth certificate. A notarized, raised seal copy. I have one, and I suspect most people do. On the other hand, if it turns out to be forged or tampered with, our country is going to erupt into chaos. Well, certain segments anyway….Im a firm believer that only a person legally entitled to BE the President should BE the President however, and if his birth cert is a forgery, then we go straight to Biden. (who I hope picks Hillary as his VP)

Of course, thats all pie in the sky speculation and very very premature at this point. Really, it would be best if Obama produced the real deal, and it showed beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s legit.

  1. and what if the original is missing? You can’t just create a new one. Mine was gone for years and I had problems. You can get the state to issue a verification for your birth, but guess what? Social security wont take this. (I was missing my driver’s license too, and they wont let you get that without a social security card.)

    In the end, after my papers were lost, the only way I was ever able to officially re-establish my identity was that I had applied for a passport right before it happened. Had I not applied for the passport, well… Guess I couldn’t be President then!

  2. you can go to the clerk of the county where you where born and request a new copy cant you? the State Capital vital stats office should have it also….I work in Social Services and come across this all the time…many hospitals have also transferred original info onto microfiche or other preservation media.

    anyway, soon, our ID cards (driver’s licenses) will have all this info encoded into them (among other things Im afraid)

    The issue here is that the Birth Cert that Obama has produced on his website is apparently missing key elements that it is supposed to have, yet he is passing it off as real….My fear is that he knows hit birth cert has been tampered with and is afraid of scrutiny. For the sake of the Country, I hope Im wrong.

  3. Copies aren’t allowed for passports, drivers licenses, social security cards. It’s original or bust.

  4. And the only thing Virginia could provide was a certficate of live birth, very different from birth certificate. I never tried a county registrar. It was not suggested by the people at social security OR the DMV. Though I wouldn’t be surprised if that was merely due to their incompetence.

  5. Would that pie in the sky be Obama’s favorite- Sweet Potato Pie?

  6. perhaps, although shoo-fly seems more apt dont you think?
