FL judge dismisses birther suit by quoting “Miracle on 34th St”

This is a truly beautiful decision issued today (Friday), admirably quoting from one of the very best Christmas movies ever. Florida Second Judicial Circuit, Judge Kevin J. Carroll, in Voeltz v. Obama:

This Court notes that President Obama lives in the White House. He flies on Air Force One. He has appeared before Congress, delivered States of the Union addresses, and meets with Congressional leaders on a regular basis. He has appointed countless ambassadors to represent the interests of the United States throughout the world. President Obama's recent appointment of The Honorable Mark Walker, formerly a member of this Court, has been confirmed by the United States Senates. Judge Walker has been sworn in as a United States District Court Judge and currently works at the Federal Courthouse down the street. The Electoral College has recently done its work and elected Mr. Obama to be President once again. As this matter has come before the Court at this time of year it seems only appropriate to paraphrase the ruling rendered by the fictional Judge Henry X. Harper from New York in open court in the classic holiday film 'Miracle on 34th St.' "Since the United States Government declares this man to be President, this Court will not dispute it. Case dismissed."

1. Finally, some intelligent words from a homey

Plaintiff ought to be charged for this frivolous lawsuit too.

3. Guess he's been dismissed twice before, with prejudice

Judge is in the holiday spirit to not throw the book at him.

5. You're welcome. Great decision, great movie.

I never tire of "Miracle on 34th Street." Or of the birthers getting their beards pulled.

7. I read that Orly Taitz is trying to stop the reading of the Electoral College results

She is attempting to file a lawsuit to bar it from happening. I'm sick of these kooks acting like they are the advocates for the true Americans. I'm sick and tired of people going after our president for the simple fact that they think he is a black man tarnishing the White House. I don't care what they PRETEND to stand for--that's the bottom line--RACISM.

12. That's a disturbing decision

The judge is saying that once something is firmly in place, we must not question whether it's in place legally.

I would have preferred it if he'd pointed out that the Constitution does not require that one be born in the United States to be president, and if he had said that the plaintiffs have not shown that the president is not a natural-born citizen.

14. I think you're missing the spirit of the post

This is the third time this guy has been tossed out on his ear this year. It is an unserious lawsuit that should not be dignified by anything more than the judge's very appropriate quote from "Miracle."

If you've seen it, you'll get it. If not, highly recommended.
