(2) Judge Malihi has allowed New Jersey attorney, Leo Donofrio's, Amicus Brief to be added to the group of documents which the court may or may not consider in its final ruling. The brief painstakingly argues against Obama's eligibility using extensive historical and judicial precedents. Donofrio does not represent any of the plaintiffs.
(3) The left-wing media's sloppy use of the word "birther" in articles like the one below indicate either an ignorance of the facts, or a deliberate attempt to distract from the underpinning issue surrounding Barack Obama's eligibility, which has nothing to do with his birth certificate. Indeed, the most important issue is whether or not a person born in the U.S. to one or more foreign parents meets the historical meaning of the term "natural born citizen". By Obama's own admission, his father was a British subject of Kenyan descent.
(4) In addition to Obama, there are numerous politicians who also are not qualified, including Republicans Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal. Also, if the parents of South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, were not naturalized citizens when Nikki was born, then she would not be qualified. Questions arise about Mitt Romney because his father was born in Mexico.
By all means, read the left-wing article, but most importantly I hope you will read as much of the brief as possible so that you will fully understand the constitutional quandry we are facing. If we had fully understood the intent of our founders before the 2008 election cycle, Barack Obama would not be in the Oval Office today.

The White House appears prepared to ignore a recent ruling by Georgia Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi that would require President Obama to attend a birther hearing in Fulton County, Ga., on Thursday.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney outlined Barack Obama's weekly agenda on Monday, noting that the president is scheduled to hit Las Vegas, Denver and Detroit on Thursday in a whirlwind tour to talk middle class job creation.
That's not likely to sit well with Malihi, who last week rejected an effort by Obama's legal team to quash a subpoena that would require president appear in court that day. The complaint, like many others of its kind, claims Obama isn't a natural-born citizen and therefore can't be president.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports on Malihi's decision to deny the administration's efforts to counter the subpoena:
