You don't get it, Bush has always been President ans is responsible for the ills of this world....
The rude one is a waste of HTML. He runs into a thread, insults people and then leaves.
You are correct. A sitting President does NOT have to appear in front of a judge in a matter such as this. Neither does anyone else. They can refuse to show up and a default judgement will be entered.
I'm truly sorry that it has gotten to this point--when a possibly non-citizen is sitting as President--but that die is cast. Sorry again, birthers. State judges are no longer in play, here.
I think you mistake yourself. The State of Georgia is asking nothing from Mr. Obama. Mr. Obama is asking the state of Georgia for permission to be on the ballot. The State of Georgia has requirements (as do all states) for ballot access. The first requirement is that you must be qualified for the office which you seek. As Mr. Obama's qualifications are questionable, it is within the duties of the Administrative law Judge to determine if he meets the requirements.
Mr. Obama can refuse to cooperate and the Judge can then rule he hasn't met his burden of proof necessary for ballot access. This is simple.
You are acting like a complete jerk.
He is not in this litigation as President. He is in this litigation as a CITIZEN. The Notice to Produce specifically calls on HIM to appear before the Judge.
You sure picked a perfect screen name.
Read about a third of the way into Leo’s brief. Brief it ain’t. Elaborates on natural born citizen vs natural born subject.
Subject being two dimensional; of politics and of spirituality (powers from God to the King as head of the Church.)
Article I of the Constitution brought into play to counter prior Court rulings based on interpretation of natural born subject’s meaning or the erroneous interpretation thereof.
Put on a pot of coffee for this read. Lengthy with massive supporting appendix.
Do we really want to have a precedent where any judge anywhere in the US can summon POTUS to appear in his courtroom, for whatever reason the judge decides?
“Well, Presidents can be somewhat busy.”
I’m waiting for the correct legal response, Mr. Lawyer.
If I were the judge I would not be getting on any plane at the President’s request.
Well if Obammy dont appear. Find him in contempt of court and Lock his Arse up.
If he does not appear in court and refuses to show just cause why he should not be held in contempt of court, he will in fact be held in contempt. (At least that is the normal course of action.) He is not being subpoenaed as the President but as a private citizen.
You’re husband is very bright.
That is exctly what’s going to happen.
I wonder why everyone immediatly gets hostile and rude when you try to point out the facts.
I hate that
Thank you- I have found him to be rarely wrong on the law. But he has been practicing more than 40 years!
No one has been rude or hostile to me. But this is a very emotional issue for many people here, and few are legal experts.
Please. Impertinence befits no one here.
The judge has not come up with "whatever reason." The business before the court is that BHO's name has been requested to be placed on the GA ballot. For this circumstance, GA has rules that indicate the candidate must be eligible for the office being sought, as it should be. In this case, the salient rules are those Constitutionally mandated.
5 GA citizens have implicitly said, "Wait, we have yet to see fully documented qualifications, and the information is in the public domain indicates he's likely not qualified.
Nonetheless, everyone present is happy to give the candidate the opportunity to enlighten the GA officials responsible for ballot placement as to the candidate's true qualifications.
However, if the candidate demurs providing those credentials of qualification, please don't expect GA to assume the burden is upon anyone else or to set aside their own rules to wave on through the candidate's ballot placement, no matter who he thinks he is.
Not that the latter is likely either.
