    Supreme Court turns down another appeal that claims Obama ineligible to be president

    Last update: December 15, 2008 - 10:30 AM

    WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court has turned down another challenge to Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as president because of his citizenship.

    The appeal by Cort Wrotnowski of Greenwich, Conn., was denied Monday without comment.

    Wrotnowski argued that Obama was a British subject at birth and therefore cannot meet the requirement for becoming president.

    He wanted the high court to halt presidential electors from meeting to formally elect Obama as president.

    Echoing an appeal that was rejected by justices last week, Wrotnowski said that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American, his Kenyan father was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a "natural born citizen."

    At least two other appeals over Obama's citizenship remain at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama says and Hawaii officials have confirmed.

    Federal courts in Pennsylvania have dismissed Berg's lawsuit. Federal courts in Ohio and Washington state have rejected similar lawsuits.

    Allegations raised on the Internet say the birth certificate, showing that Obama was born in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961, is a fake.

    But Hawaii Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and the state's registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, say they checked health department records and have determined there's no doubt Obama was born in Hawaii.

    The nonpartisan Web site examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document.

    In addition, reproduced an announcement of Obama's birth, including his parents' address in Honolulu, that was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Aug. 13, 1961.
  2. wow what a surprise.

    do you realize that it is near on impossible to overturn his election at this point?

    you have a better chance at hitting the lottery LOL :D
  3. So where is the original birth certificate than?

    I am not convinced.
  4. it is too late to challenge on this front dickwad.

    thank god he's our pres for next 8 yrs
  5. So basically to you it is more important to be early than late instead of being right or wrong.

    Ignornace is bliss I guess.

    Oh and by the way what has Obama done to make you thank god that he is our president?
  6. right, wrong or otherwise it makes no diff now you 'genius' :D

    you want to impeach before his first official act .. good luck on that pothead

  7. So right or wrong doesn't matter? Thanks for showing everyone how morally deficient you really are.

    Also you cannot impeach a president-elect that hasn't been inaugurated yet you idiot.

    You answer questions and make statements about as coherently as a pothead.

    At least successful argumentative liberals know how to avoid answering questions directly. You simply show the raw stupidity of the common liberal thought process by being HONEST.

  8. Prevent Mcsane/Bush 2 from running the country the next 8 years
  9. See medication might prevent a person from dying of cancer but it won't stop them from getting hit by a bus.

    Obama isn't the bus rather the person who said he could stop the bus from hitting anyone.

    So what makes you thank "god" that Obama was elected besides preventing something?

    If there is nothing besides the prevention than basically you agree with the philosophy that two wrongs make a right?

    You libs are lacking horrendous amounts of substance today...
  10. You're right,2 wrongs don't make a right,but some wrongs are worse then others

    Just imagine if Mcsane won and died,then Palin would be president.Thank god thats not a possibility
