Obama's rope-a-dope

Obama argues against appearing at eligibility hearing


Barack Obama has outlined a defense strategy for a multitude of state-level challenges to his candidacy on the 2012 presidential ballot in a Georgia case that is scheduled to come before a judge later this month – simply explain that states have nothing to do with the eligibility of presidential candidates.

And Obama's argument?  Add it to the long list of curious, fraudulent, or plain stupid behavior Obama has exhibited in his eligibility fight.

Presidential electors and Congress, not the state of Georgia, hold the constitutional responsibility for determining the qualifications of presidential candidates, Obama’s lawyer argues in a motion to quash a subpoena for him to appear at the hearings Jan. 26.

It is states, usually through the office of secretary of state, that run elections, not the federal government. The national election is simply a compilation of the results of the individual elections within states.  State law also grants the secretary of state and any “elector who is eligible to vote for a candidate” in the state the authority to raise a challenge to a candidate’s qualifications, the judge determined.  His lawyers ought be fined by the judges for willfully employing rope-a-dope in this, by now, farcical effort to save Obama's ass.

Como se dice Electoral College? The states elect a president. It isn't by national popular vote.

If what Captain Bullshit's lawyer says is true, then how come George Soros the Sinister spent millions trying to influence the selection of American states' Secretaries of State and Elections Board chairpersons? Hmmmm??? Why does Soros attach so much importance to those normally unheard of positions? He's evil but not stupid by along shot.

The phrase "as shall be determined by the individual states" comes to mind here. The states can pick their electors by dart board if they so wish. Go read about the Florida 2000 brouhaha and news reports there that the state legislature could do just about anything to select their 'electors'. One would think they could impose a rule that electors must vote for 'vetted' candidates...
Give me a break.
