"Cites paraphrased decision in 'Miracle on 34th Street' in Florida Democrat's challenge"
A real-life Florida judge has paraphrased a statement from the fictional Judge Henry X. Harper in Miracle on 34th Street to justify his sudden decision to dismiss a challenge under state law to Barack Obamas eligibility to occupy the Oval Office.
The ruling from Kevin Carroll of the Florida circuit court for Leon County dismissed the case brought on behalf of Democratic voter Michael C. Voeltz, who raised the issue of Obamas qualifications under a state law that allows voters to challenge candidates eligibility.
Carroll, who had given the plaintiffs until Dec. 23 to respond to Obamas motion to dismiss the case, changed his mind and abruptly Thursday ordered the case dismissed.
He explained that the fact the government says Obama is qualified to be president is more than enough for him.
This court notes that President Obama lives in the White House. He flies on Air Force One. He has appeared before Congress, delivered State of the Union addresses and meets with congressional leaders on a regular basis. He has appointed countless ambassadors to represent the interests of the United States throughout the world, Carroll wrote.
As this matter has come before the court at this time of the year it seems only appropriate to paraphrase the ruling rendered by the fictional Judge Henry X. Harper from New York ..........

We need more rails and tar and feathers.
What? Me worry?
Birthers fail in court yet again, shocking!
"one who... holds office..without proper authority"-
Webster`s Dictionary 1887
Real F’ing funny Kevin Carroll, you cowardly POS. Being complicit in the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.. HaHa funny.
What they don't get is that they have no more chance of prevailing than they do of flying to the moon in a leaky rowboat.
What was that definition of insanity again?
I understand what you are saying, but in quantum physics, you can smash something against a wall an infinite number of times and there is a chance that if everything aligns, it will pass through.
Zero isn’t invincible nor indivisible. Something will get him. Call it Karma, but I don’t think he continues raping our nation for much longer.
Has the judge ever heard of the circular argument?
A kangaroo court judge quotes a fictional movie to uphold a fictional law for a ficitionally constituional government. Some day our ruling class like this smarmy s#%thead judge is going to laugh themselves right into CWII.
Four years. Sorry, but that’s the reality.
And if for any reason the cigarettes unexpectedly catch up with him during that time, it’ll be Slow Joe Biden.
Honestly, there’s a much bigger chance he dies of lung cancer or Air Force One having a structural failure or runway excursion than there is that he will be removed from office by the birthers.
Heck, there’s probably a bigger chance he gets smashed by a meteor.
Kenyan-born, B. Hussein Obama has secured his place in History as the Anti-Christ that was twice elected to an Office that he could not legally accept.
This ruling is so utterly stupid it makes me wonder if it is a red flag by a judge who was given an offer he couldn’t refuse but doesn’t like it one bit. You know, like Judge Carter, Judge Malihi, the judge in Berg’s case, Robertson...
Ironic that this judge seems to be saying that Obama is eligible just like the guy hired to pretend he’s Santa really is Santa. Yep, Obama’s eligibility is just as real as a pretend Santa.
Either these judges think we’re idiots, they’re all idiots, or they are trying to signal to us that they are acting under duress by saying such patently abusrd things while violating everything our judicial system is supposed to stand for.
I’m wondering the same thing.
Very interesting perspective you have there about the silliness included with the decision.
We're not idiots, even I have to doubt that one of our little black robed tyrants would be this much of an idiot, so your reasoning seems as somewhat of a possibility to me.
This train left the station a long time ago, when the Republican Establishment refused to challenge Obamas credentials. They are complicit in all this crime. As far as they are concerned, the natural birth provision is ,if not a dead letter, then irrelevant.
At least the appeal will come that much sooner! Although I expect even more tortuous legal reasoning denying discovery and hearing on the merits in the end. It is good for the historical record to make the judiciary squirm and battle their remaining personal scruples, if they have any, even if the fix is in at the end of the day.
Barry’s campaign has access to hundreds of millions of dollars which can buy a lot of legal and extra-legal help from unscrupulous parties.
The fact remains that his policies are crippling the US and world economy and several hot-spots around the world are about to blow, so it is not unreasonable to expect that he will eventually be blamed for failures big-time in the near future. He can’t blame Bush. He will be weakened at that time and may become vulnerable.
It was only two months ago that his own “loyalists” were calling him stupid and a loser after the first debate. They are a bunch of jackals when they don’t get their goodies and have no loyalty. We need some back-stabbing Dems to take him down, is what I am saying! It could happen.
Obama-trolls who can't admit the truth that they are trolls...shocking!
Just out of curiosity, when your (Longbow1969; Jeff Winston) initial premise and purpose of posting here is based on a lie how exactly do expect anyone to take you seriously and how do you reconcile your position?
I'm expecting some really stupendous Obama-tripe so give it some thought before you post.
There's probably a bigger probability that you would admit to the names you've been posting under than the chance he gets smashed by a meteor.
I'm going with the meteor.
I wanted to bold the entire quote but you nailed it.
I think you may have something there. When I read the story I thought it was just another judge showing his contempt for the constitution but maybe it was a passive aggressive response to orders from above.
Birthers who are completely out of touch with reality have long since ceased to be shocking.
When you can’t even recognize who your actual friends are, and start shooting at them rather than at the enemy, it’s time for you to pack it in.
"I think you're so blinded by inconsolable rage that you don't care who you hurt. When you can't tell your friends from your enemies, it's time to go."
Actually, the court ruled it lacked jurisdiction and thus could not take action. That is contrary to what this article claims, but very reasonable for a state court.
Yay, birthers spinning new conspiracy theories. Now anyone that disagrees with birthers must be a troll - even if they've been here (as in my case) for over 10 years (much longer than you Smokeyblue).
Hey, are all those conservative legal scholars like Mark Levin also trolls because they think birtherism is stupid? How about pretty much every conservative with a radio program who boots birthers off the air the minute they start spouting their idiocy?
Get it through yer head. Birtherism is a fringe conspiracy theory - much like Truthers are on the left. It's silly nonsense that no court agrees with.
And another thing. Marco Rubio IS a eligible to be President incase you have ridiculous ideas in your head that he isn't.
Not so shocking. Ever since Roosevelt/Truman stacked the courts with left wing loons, the system has been very dysfunctional.
“Since the takers in this country recognize this man, Barack Obama, to be Santa Claus, this court will not dispute it. Case dismissed.”
