There has been a growing number of lawsuits filed by America's servicemen and women that question President Obama's constitutional eligibility to hold the office of the President of the United States and thusly issue legal military orders. Today, Federal Court Judge David O. Carter refused to hear President Obama's motion to dismiss one such case and ordered a trial date be set for January 26, 2010.
According to one eyewitness, Judge Carter, a former Marine, stated several times that this was a very serious case that needed quick resolution. He said that American troops must be assured their Commander-in-Chief is eligible to hold his office and thereby able to legally issue orders to our military, which is even all the more important in this time of war.
President Obama's motion to dismiss was filed just last Friday, Judge Carter indicated that, because of the short time frame for his motion, there was virtually no chance the case would be dismissed. It is expected that in the very likely eventuality that Obama's motion is denied, the judge will order President Obama to produce a copy of his long form, vault birth certificate in expedited discovery. Something some say the President should have done from day one to quash any claims against his eligibility.
