Obama Files Motion To Dismiss Instead Of Producing The Documents

I have tried hard to stay away from this issue and simply wait to see how things played out, but since Barack Obama has now filed a motion to dismiss Philip Berg's lawsuit against him, where Berg was requesting three items from the Obama campaign, to which the campaign has refused to supply, I figure I will at least write about what is happening, with no opinion given either way.

The three items Berg has requested the court force Obama to supply are:

Certified "vault" birth certificate;

A copy of his Certificate of Citiizenship;

A copy of his Oath of Allegiance to the United States

Obama's motion to dismiss story, via Tallahassee Injury Board:

Attorneys for Barack Hussein Obama filed a motion in Federal Court in Pennsylvania on Monday, asking the court to dismiss the Amended Complaint filed by Philip J. Berg. The lawsuit filed by Berg challenges Obama's eligibility to take the office of the President of the United States. The motion to dismiss filed by Obama and the Democratic National Committee, echoes Obama's prior motion to dismiss the action for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

In his lawsuit, the Plaintiff, Philip J. Berg, a Philadelphia attorney, alleged that Defendant Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible for the Office of the President because Obama lost his U.S. citizenship when his mother married an Indonesian citizen and naturalized in Indonesia. Plaintiff further alleged that Obama followed her naturalization and failed to take an oath of allegiance when he turned 18 years old, to regain his U.S. citizenship status. The lawsuit raises not only the Indonesian citizenship issue but also questions whether Obama was a citizen of Kenya.

Mr. Berg has stated that if Barack Hussein Obama will produce a certified "vault" birth certificate, a copy of his Certificate of Citiizenship and a copy of his Oath of Allegiance to the United States, that he (Mr. Berg) will dismiss his lawsuit voluntarily. To date, Obama has refused to comply with Mr. Berg's request.

The parties (and the country) await a decision by Judge R. Barclay Surrick on the motions to dismiss and a motion to block discovery, filed by Obama.

As I said above, I have no opinion one way or another on this whole strange mess, but I do have a simple question I have been asking for a while now.

Why does Obama not just supply the paperwork and be done with this whole issue altogether?

Why has Obama and the DNC fought so hard to block having to produce the paperwork, instead of just getting it over with?

While all this is going on, it has just been reported that Barack Obama is leaving the campaign trail to go to Hawaii and visit his grandmother who the campaign claims is sick.

Coincidence? Probably.

Since I am showing the current reports on this topic, a news release by Philip Berg, the attorney that filed thr lawsuit to force Obama to produce the proof, can be found here. (PDF file)

(Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 10/21/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States, announced today that Obama and tbe DNC “ADMITTED”, by way of failure to timely respond to Requests for Admissions, all of the numerous specific requests in the Federal lawsuit. Obama is “NOT QUALIFIED” to be President and therefore Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President and the DNC shall substitute a qualified candidate. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.

Berg stated that he filed Requests for Admissions on September 15, 2008 with a response by way of answer or objection had to be served within thirty [30] days. No response to the Requests for Admissions was served by way of response or objection. Thus, all of the Admissions directed to Obama and the DNC are deemed “ADMITTED.” Therefore, Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President.

(Disclaimer- I am not a lawyer, I have no way of knowing why this back and forth is necessary or why Obama and the DNC haven't produced the paperwork Berg is suing to see)

If you have questions about Berg's lawsuit or why Barack Obama is filing a motion to dismiss rather than simply producing the documents, which should be a simple matter, here is Berg's information.

(Note- I am finding this whole thing very strange, so any lawyers out there reading this, please feel free to weigh in. It also bears noting, Berg is a Democrat, which makes this even more strange)

reports there has been another lawsuit filed against Barack Obama from a man named Andy Martin in Hawaii demanding that the State turn over Obama's Birth Certificate.

YID questions whether this trip to Hawaii to see his ailing grandmother is a bit too coincidental as well.

I am reserving judgment, but I still maintain there is something strange about Obama not just producing the damn documents and instead fighting hard so that he doesn't have to produce them.

What the hell is going on?
