Obama Fails to Show for Eligibility Hearing

Yesterday in Atlanta an administrative law judge heard from plaintiffs claiming Obama is ineligible to appear on the ballot in Georgia because he is not a “natural born” citizen as required of a presidential candidate by the U.S. Constitution. This is the first time a court has agreed to hear evidence regarding Obama’s status as a “natural born” citizen.  Incredibly, Obama and his lawyers chose to ignore the court and did not appear at the hearing or try to deny the claim or prove that he is eligible.

This issue has been the subject of various lawsuits since 2008 because “natural born” citizen is usually understood to mean that both parents are American citizens. Yet in his autobiography Obama acknowlegded that his father was a British citizen from Kenya. The U.S. Constitution specifically forbids presidential candidates to be foreign born or to hold dual citizenship. However, until now every single court has refused to hear evidence on the issue, usually citing some reason such as the plaintiffs lacking standing; that is until yesterday.

The court in Atlanta did not issue a judgment immediately, but by not showing, the judge is likely to declare a default judgment (meaning Obama loses by default, failure to appear), which will then be recommended to the Secretary of State who has the final say on whether or not Obama’s name will appear on the ballot. If his name is not on the ballot, he will not receive any electoral votes from Georgia. Similar lawsuits are waiting to be heard in other states within the next few months.

If these lawsuits prevail, Obama’s time in office may come to an end sooner than he would like. It’s going to get much more interesting from hereon out.
