The judge asked some pretty stupid stuff like; 'what if the mother were artificially inseminated and the father was not known"..............
(As if our Founding Father's could have anticipated that?) :lol: :lol:

Fl. State Law says that if no one challenges, the one on the ballot is the nominee!! But the defending attorney said that no one had been nominated yet because the Dems had not selected a nominee........ (As if they might chose one nominee for one state and another nominee for other states? :roll: )

This case could go either way.......................................

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —Lawyers for the administrations of Barack Obama and Gov. Rick Scott asked a judge Monday to dismiss a ballot challenge that alleges the president is not a "natural born citizen."

Circuit Judge Terry Lewis did not immediately rule. He gave lawyers on both sides a week to submit proposed orders.

The lawsuit by Fort Lauderdale automobile salesman Michael Voeltz asks that Obama be removed from the state's 2012 ballot.

Attorneys for the Democratic president and the Florida Department of State under the Republican governor argued that can't be done because Obama hasn't yet been nominated. Obama lawyer Mark Herron also told Lewis that federal law precludes state courts from determining the qualifications of presidential candidates.

Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman, who is representing Voeltz, questioned Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate and contended that even if the president was born in the United States he still is not a natural citizen because his father was a foreign national.

Klayman later said U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who is considered as a potential vice presidential nominee, also wouldn't qualify because his parents weren't U.S. citizens when he was born.

He contended Obama can be challenged because he was nominated in Florida in the state's Jan. 31 presidential preference primary although no Democrats appeared on the ballot. That's because Obama's name was the only one submitted by the Florida Democratic Party.

"Therefore, these been no election, no certificate of nomination and there can be no election contest," said Daniel Nordby, general counsel for the Department of State.

the founders understood that parents could and would influence their children.. and that a child with divided loyalty could be dangerous in our highest office..

the rest is just a distraction....

but on matter the circumstances when a qualification is required it isn't upon the government or the people to disqualify, but it is a requirement for the person to show he or she is qualified...

that affirmation process is now broken.. and must be fixed..

our congress, the existing executive branch and the courts have so far failed to uphold the Constitution...

if as some feel the constitution is wrong on this issue, then it must be amended, not disregarded..

Do I need to mention that Obama could end all of this very, very easily and very very quickly...... if he could?
