Judge hears argument to oust Obama from Georgia ballot

ATLANTA -- Will Georgians be able to vote for President Barack Obama in the March 6th primary?

Right now, that's still up in the air.

Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi did not issue following Thursday's hearing where plaintiffs presented a case that Mr. Obama is not a natural-born citizen and therefore ineligible to hold office as President of the Unite States.

Last week, Judge Malihi ordered the President to appear at Thursday's hearing, but his attorney Michael Jablonski said he would not be there. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp wrote to Jablonski on Wednesday that if Obama and his attorney don't show up, "you do so at your own peril."

Neither President Obama not his attorney attended Thursday's hearing.

Jablonski said Mr. Obama has long made his birth certificate and other documents proving his citizenship available to the public.
