    ATLANTA (AP) -
    A judge has ordered President Barack Obama to appear in court in Atlanta for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and can't be president.
    It's one of many such lawsuits that have been filed across the country, so far without success. A Georgia resident made the complaint, which is intended to keep Obama's name off the state's
    ballot in the March presidential primary.
    An Obama campaign aide says any attempt to involve the president personally will fail and such complaints around the country have no merit.
    The hearing is set for Thursday before an administrative judge. Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi on Friday denied a motion by the president's lawyer to quash a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.

    Haven't posted in a while because I was focusing on school, but today's my birthday and thought I would post an update on this for the hell of it, even if they somehow get out of this, others are investigating it... that is to say, law enforcement.

    Obama's going DOWN!

    Down to Georgia, that is. And then back to the White House, where he will live for the next five years barring an asteroid hitting the earth. :P

    Move along kids, this is no big deal.
    Just politics as usual. :)

    Okay. So Obama is vetted by the FBI before even being allowed to run for president (a somewhat important position here in the States that was thorough at worst...)
    And some dude in Georgia decides he's uncovered the conspiracy?

    I will never understand the birthers.


    @The Living Shadow
    your added bit at the end there almost suggests you believe it's a legitimate case to be made... Were it legitimate, the GOP would have had him out of there within minutes of his winning the election. Were it legitimate, everyone in the GOP race would be making it a point to say something about it every chance they had. Instead, you have Donald Trump as the face of the birther moment getting put in his place.

    Right behind you
    Hasn't all this birther nonsense been put to rest a while ago? Even Donald Trump gave up and admitted he was natural born. Heck, if 2 birth certificates, a birth announcement, and testamony from numerous hawaiian tate official in't enough, nothing will be. The sad thing is, if he was white, it wouldn't even be an issue.

    The birthers need to be sterlized or imprisoned. There's no excuse for such high caliber stupidity in our country.

    Questioning a presidents' citizenship should be high treason.

    No. USN is for any piece of news. Think of it like Kotaku, they post articles about games, but they also post about other crap as well.

    God damn it, this again? I thought this was all resolved and water under the bridge. Clearly he won't be elected again, so all this damned fuss will be for naught. >.< Some people need to have their brains drawn out through their nose and be beaten with it like a rubber hose.

    read here, and then pay attention to the news whores, notice the correlation? Just because this has been painted as right wing doesn't make it so. I am in it to make sure that everything in the constitution is followed, what's so bad about that?

    @[member='everyoneneedsasmile'], thank you for the birthday comments, much appreciated!

    Protip: No human in America is a "natural born citizen", we all had ancestors who immigrated from somewhere, including the Native Americans (Yeah I'm going that far back).

    I thought we were past this. Anyway if you think legal action can be taken against the president just look at Clinton.

    Natural-born merely means you were born in that peculiar landmass. A baby born in Germany was naturally born in Germany.

    It's up to the government of these respective nations to decide whether these babies are granted citizenship at birth.
