OK…how did I miss this?
Lawyer Philip Berg’s lawsuit questioning Barack Obama’s “natural born” status has entered a do-or-die phase after the Supreme Court has ordered the president-elect to produce his birth certificate by December 1st.
Berg, who appealed his case to America’s highest court, was told by Justice David Souter’s Clerk that his petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied. The Clerk also required the defendants (Obama, the DNC, and FEC) to respond to the Writ of Certiorari by December 1. At that time, Obama must present an authentic birth certificate to the Court, which has been sealed by Hawaii governor Linda Lingle. Berg will get to respond afterwards.
It wouldn’t be because no one actually reported this, would it?
So, what happens now?
Obama, the DNC, and the FEC were ordered by a Federal Court to produce “vault” copies of his birth certificate once before, and simply ignored the mandate, arguing that the court lacked legal standing to challenge a presidential candidate’s qualifications, at which point, the Honorable R. Barclay Surrick, a Clinton appointee to the bench, simply dismissed the case.
There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of respect for Phillip Berg (plaintiff) in this case…yet, here he is, standing on the steps of the highest Court in the land, demanding to be heard…and this little suit seems to have some legs left in it after all.
