Obama’s Eligibility Challenged In New Jersey

Two New Jersey residents, a Republican from Monmouth County and a Democrat from Ocean County, have filed an objection to Barack Obama’s name being placed on the New Jersey Democratic primary ballot and the general election ballot for the office of President of the United States, according to a story first reported on Conservative News and Views.

Nicholas Purpura, the Republican, and Theodore Moran, the Democrat are represented by Attorney Mario Appuzzo of Jamesburg. They filed their objection to Obama’s candidacy with the New Jersey Division of Elections on April 5.  A copy of the objection can be downloaded here.

There is a plenary hearing is scheduled before an Administrative Judge at the Office of Administrative Law in Mercerville on Tuesday April 10, 10am, according to Appuzzo.

On his blog, Natural Born Citizen-A Place to Ask Questions and Get the Right Answers, Appuzzo said:

The Objection to Obama’s nominating petition is that he has not provided competent and sufficient evidence to the New Jersey Secretary of State showing his identity and that he was born in the United States, and that even if he were born in the United States, he is not and cannot be an Article II “natural born Citizen” because he was not born to two U.S. citizen parents. The Objection therefore demands that the Secretary of State not permit Obama’s name to be printed on the primary and general election ballot.

    “Spin Machine”…funny coming from you Art. You would never, ever endorse a Democrat…so don’t talk to me about sheep. You have attacked everything that any democrat has put forth, and you continually truss up any and all republicans. I can hear you bleating all the way to Colts Neck.

    And you don’t think what Arpaio is doing has anything to do with campaigning to his base in Arizona? Its all politics Art…you, of all people should know that.

    Also, I have never shied away from supporting the President, never. And, I will support him this time around because I know that if we elect a republican, that it will be the end of the America I know and love.

    RC: No matter how many times people keep repeating it, on the Presidents birth certificate the term “African American” deos not appear.

    The President “grandmother” that you refer to is actually a step grandmother and I believe she is/was the 3rd wife of his grandfather. There has been a tape floating around the internet for years however there are many questions regarding the reliability of the translation of the questions/answers she was given.

    You would never, ever endorse a Democrat

    I hereby endorse Bill Pascrell in the CD-9 primary, Nina Gill in the CD-10 primary and Randall Terry in the Democratic presidential primary.

  4. Rick Ambrosia said at 10:57 am on April 10th, 2012:

    LOL…yeah, and I endorse The Newt for the republican nomination…

    RA said “I know that if we elect a republican, that it will be the end of the America I know and love.”

    AHH thats better. Thats the Ambrosiac I know and have disdain for. All is right in the world.

    My hope if a Republican is elected is that we get back the America I know and love. An America the way it is supposed to be. An America where the Government doesn’t tell us what to do and we all stand on our own two feet.

  6. Rick Ambrosia said at 12:51 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Right TR…those republicans will stay out of your way….unless, of course, your gay or a woman..then those rascally republicans are more than happy to tell you what you can and can’t do.

  8. I am woman, hear me roar. said at 3:04 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    “…those republicans will stay out of your way….unless, of course, your gay or a woman..then those rascally republicans are more than happy to tell you what you can and can’t do.” -says Rick Ambrosia.

    Sorry Rick. Maybe you don’t realize it because your a guy, but women are smarter than you think. We are not so easily manipulated by your inflammatory rhetoric. Your comment is insulting.

    Frankly put, “it’s the economy stupid”. It’s the slew of very REAL issues facing our families today. It’s the future of our children, and our children’s children, that concerns us.

    The average woman, by our nature, is a far cry from the self-centered bubblehead you’d have us be. Do you really believe some bogus “war on women” (designed solely for the purpose of manipulating our vote) will circumvent our core convictions? If so, once again I am insulted by your misguided misogynistic opinion of women.

  9. Bob English said at 3:15 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    In the poll released earlier this week, the President is running 18 points ahead of Gov. Romney is the 12 battleground states among women voters. Obviously some of the extremist positions that Romney has gotten himself sucked into taking are hurting him with women.

  10. I am woman, hear me roar. said at 4:42 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Bob English,
    You’ve misrepresented my comment, as it was a direct response to something Rick Ambrosia said here, on this blog. Perhaps you failed to understand what I was saying. Please read it again, testosterone in check.

    As for Gov. Romney’s “extremist positions” regarding women, please regale us. I know of no extreme stance he has personally taken. Enlighten me.

  11. Rick Ambrosia said at 5:00 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Wow..you’re so enraged, that you hide behind a cliche’d moniker. Nice. Obviously, you like being told what you can and can’t do with your own body…I feel sad for you. As far as Bob’s statement, maybe you’re the one misreading. Apparently, a majority of women don’t like to be told what they can and can’t do with their body. Maybe you like the way the republicans all across this country are denying some women the chance to have medical checkups at clinics, just because a small portion of what they do is abortion related. Like that law that was just passed in Mississippi which closed down the last clinic so that now women who choose to terminate a pregnancy have to either have one done illegally and potentially fatally, or travel out of state to have a safe procedure. And, should we start on same sex marriage now? Because, if you’re gay, republicans will not let you marry. Should we go on cliche woman? If you even are a woman. Who knows since you hide behind your keyboard.

  12. ArtGallagher said at 5:52 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Thanks Rick,

    Now we know why Republican men make better lovers and why the difference between Republican and Democratic women is so severe.


    Rick, you’ve also given me an insight into why so few women comment here.

  13. Rick Ambrosia said at 7:54 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Maybe you should put up crazy eyes Bachmann….my wife is a die hard dem, and she’s as hot as they come…wish I could post a pic, but she wouldn’t care for that all that much. She’s much more private than I am.

    Or, maybe you should put up some nice pics of Vetter’s prostitutes, or The Newts wives…all three of them. Does Calista’s hair ever move? Just askin’.

  14. ArtGallagher said at 7:58 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    Ok, humor didn’t work. Scale it back Rick.

  15. Bob English said at 11:03 pm on April 10th, 2012:

    I am woman: I posted my previous comment sighting the huge gender gap to point out that there are women out there (apparently a hell of a lot of them) that do perceive some Republican policies as a war on women.

  16. TR said at 8:14 pm on April 12th, 2012:

    I see a lot of polls floating around most of them are bullshit. The only poll that matters is the one on election day.

    I love the war on women rhetoric. It is a war on women to say they have to pay for their own contraception and they can’t kill their babies. I know a hell of a lot of women who agree with that. Oh and by the way it was Democrats who launched an attack on Romneys wife because she was a stay at home mom. I guess the only choices liberals believe in are the ones they agree with.
    I think most women would love an economy where they actually had a choice of working or staying home with the kids. Thats a choice I bet all women could get behind.

  17. Bob English said at 12:27 am on April 13th, 2012:

    One person said a dumb thing. The Presidnet said today that spouses should always be off limts and Michelle Obama is also a stay at home mom…..give me a break with “the Democrats launching an attack on Romneys wife”

  18. TR said at 1:04 pm on April 15th, 2012:

    See they send out surrogates to do their dirty work and say things thay can’t say but want said. Its called plausable deniability.
    Don’t get me wrong Republicans do it to. It is the dirty side of politics. Take it from someone who knows.
