    I am sure that O’Reilly was afraid of the 20 or so folks that actually showed up. The same with President Obama and the birthers. A small misguided bunch of people that think they represent the entire country. Besides Manning is a joke. He is just upset that even among the African american preachers in NYC he is not even mentioned….he leads a small bunch of people that have bought into his rhetoric and somehow thinks that he is relevant.

    It looks like a lot of the people there at the protest were Manning’s church members. Otherwise Orly’s protest would have been an even bigger fail than it was.

    Which makes it all the more ironic that Manning seems to be in the Berg camp now.

    Pat, who knows. The birthers switch partners more than soap opera characters….But Orly only has a few die hard followers. And none of them actually made it to New York.

    Anyone notice that Leo seems to have finally given up again? What are the birthers going to do? I mean Leo was the go to guy to get their misinformation and edited legal analysis. He seems like a diva. I guess he quits right around the time most people expect him to file a lawsuit or shut up….And he chooses to quit because he is afraid of losing. I guess he really doesn’t believe in his so called 2 parent theory as much as the other birthers do….

    “Emotional pleas do not sway federal courts. Only the cold hard force of legal will does.

    Patience. Attention to detail. Strategy. Planning. Honesty. Integrity. Respect for the law. Respect for the process. Thorough research. And most important – genuine injuries different than those suffered by the public at large.

    By now it should be clear that federal standing and political question doctrine issues will not yield to exotic conceptual legal theories. As predicted, the courts will not bend to anyone that precedent does not bestow judicial invitation upon. After the electoral college certified Obama, I predicted every eligibility law suit pending against him would fail on procedural grounds unless brought via the DC District Court under the the DC quo warranto statute.

    That prediction is batting 1000.

    If people feel better blaming the messenger for correctly analyzing these cases, so be it. Not knowing the legal truth doesn’t stop the legal truth from being true.

    The blog is taking too much of my time and energy. Therefore, it is going dark. I have work to do. My legal blogging days are over. I may eventually publish a book on this era of my life.

    Peace and love.

    What a vile, hateful man.

    The idea that judges would rule favorably on the “merits” of the birther cases if they could only get past the procedural issues is one of the dumbest of the many dumb statements that Donofrio and his pals make. If he were interested in testing his ideas, rather than just pontificating on his blog, the path is clear-he could take the Indiana case to the State Supreme Court and on to the SCOTUS. The reason he doesn’t is quite clear-he would get his ass handed to him.
