Quiz time for BNN and DBKP readers.

Let’s say you’re a Democrat and let’s say you’re running for president of the United States.

You’re a likable guy and are doing well–the New York Times and AP think you’re peachy–but there have been whispers of whether or not you are constitutionally qualified.

A prominent Democrat files suit in Federal court asking you to provide proof, to settle the matter once and for all. The judge then orders you to provide the court with the documents.

What do you do?

  • A. Provide the court with the three documents in question and go back to shaking hands, making promises and smiling for the cameras.
  • B. Provide images of one of the documents to a friendly website to post, but not to the judge.
  • C. Ignore the judge, then make a motion to dismiss the case, in lieu of providing the proof.
  • D. In the meantime, quietly, post a notice at your website, FighttheSmears.com that you had dual citizenship with Kenya.
  • E. Hire the top gun attorney from the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to fight the case.
  • F. File a Joint Motion for Protective Order to Stay Discovery Pending a Decision on the Motion to Dismiss (which was) filed on 09/24/08, thereby putting the matter off until–hopefully–after the election.

Time’s up. What do you do?

Most readers sensibly chose A.

But, if you’re Barack Obama, you chose answers B, C, D, E and F.

A curious response for a campaign interested in “fighting the smears”.

What’s the big deal? Regular folks provide their birth certificates every day for any number of reasons: obtaining a driver’s license or marriage license come to mind. Heck, even kids have to provide a certified copy of their birth certificates to register for kindergarten in many locales.

Most people do it–if they’re able–without much grumbling.

And they’re not even running for President.

As DBKP kept asking for ten long months during the John Edwards’ scandal:

“If there is nothing to hide, why is everyone involved going to such lengths to hide it?”

The Lawsuit of Phillip J. Berg

On August 22, we reported that attorney Phillip Berg had filed a suit in Federal court. [Denver Dem Convention: Clinton Supporter Files to Disqualify Obama]

The suit was against Barack Obama and the Democrat National Committee. It asked the court to force Obama to prove he was an American citizen.

Seems reasonable.

Do what thousands of Americans each day do–especially after 9-11: provide a birth certificate or proof of U.S. citizenship. It’s a minor inconvenience, but they do it.

This just in from Hannity’s blog (hat tip Rise Up) from here: Obama Sued in Philadelphia Federal Court on Grounds he is Constitutionally Ineligible for the Presidency

A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States.

Phillip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. According to Berg, he filed the suit–just days before the DNC is to hold its nominating convention in Denver–for the health of the Democratic Party.

“I filed this action at this time,” Berg stated, “to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.”.

The suit asked for three documents:
