What if? 224

We have not investigated or discussed the question of whether Obama is legally qualified by birth to be president.

What has concerned us, and continues to, is the immense harm he is doing since he was elected.

However, it’s an interesting question as to what would happen if it is found that he does not qualify.

We may soon find out – though we wouldn’t bet on it.

Three judges on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals are beginning to review a case that alleges Barack Obama is not eligible to be president – in fact, he may not even be American.

The federal court case was brought by attorney Mario Apuzzo on behalf of plaintiffs Charles Kerchner and others, and had been dismissed at the district court level.

Arguments earlier had been scheduled for June 29 in the dispute, but a court order recently cancelled the hearing and instead announced the case would be decided based on the merits of the legal briefs submitted by attorneys.

A document from court clerk Marcia Waldron said the case will be decided by Judge Dolores Sloviter, who was appointed by Jimmy Carter; Maryanne Trump Barry, who was appointed by Bill Clinton; and Thomas Hardiman, who was appointed by George W. Bush.

The filings were due on the day the hearing would have been held, but there’s no published timetable for a decision to be released.
