Obama, Behind The 8 Ball – Guilty of LACHES???

Long Form Birth Certificate In The Side Pocket

I am not a lawyer, but I have found something that Obama is definitely guilty of.  He is guilty of LACHES!!! Now, before yesterday, I had never even heard of LACHES,  but once I found it, oh does it ever seem to fit what Obama has done, or more accurately, NOT DONE over the last three years.  Because what LACHES is, is like sandbagging or hustling somebody. For example in pool, somebody might play kind of bad at first when the stakes are low, and then, when the stakes are better, run the table.

The law defines LACHES as:

The legal doctrine that a legal right or claim will not be enforced or allowed if a long delay in asserting the right or claim has prejudiced the adverse party (hurt the opponent) as a sort of “legal ambush.”

Examples: knowing the correct property line, Oliver Owner fails to bring a lawsuit to establish title to a portion of real estate until Nat Neighbor has built a house which encroaches on the property in which Owner has title.

The law encourages a speedy resolution for every dispute. Cases in law are governed by statutes of limitations, which are laws that determine how long a person has to file a lawsuit before the right to sue expires.  Laches is the equitable equivalent of statutes of limitations. However, unlike statutes of limitations, laches leaves it up to the court to determine, based on the unique facts of the case, whether a plaintiff has waited too long to seek relief.

Now, throughout the Birtherism Ordeal,  the Obotski kept bringing up “Court” as if what happened in Court had any relationship to what was going on outside Court.  Quite regularly, the Obotski would follow some obscure Birther court case, and whoop it up in the streets after winning. Winning usually consisted of having the case thrown out because of a lack of standing. While that celebration was going on, the number of people outside of court who had doubts where Obama was born kept steadily climbing higher and higher.  Or, the Obotski would argue that the short form birth certificate would have been legally sufficient in some imaginary court proceeding.

Any fool, except apparently the Obotski, could see that while Obama was winning some battle inside court, imaginary or otherwise, he was losing the war outside of court.   So, in my mind, any comparison between Birtherism and court is rather dubious to start off with. But, let’s turn the tables on them, anyway.  Let’s pretend all of Obama and the Obotski’s whining, crying, and chest-thumping about how wrong it was for Obama to have to cough up his long form birth certificate —was in that imaginary court!

Because, when we look at equitable legal stuff,  or matters of general right and wrong, we find that Obama himself may have lost the “legal” right to whine, because he waited so long to cough up the long form. Obama is no different than the person who sits back and watches somebody build a house on the wrong side of the  property line, doesn’t say anything until the house is finished, and then goes to court to get the house.

That person runs the risk of the Court saying, “Sorry, Dude, but you sat back and watched this happen. You could have stopped it at any time. Your case is dismissed!!!”

So, the next time you hear Obama, or one of the Obotski, whine about having to cough up the long form,  just tell them, “Well you know, Obama sat back and watched this happen. He could have stopped it at any time.  In Court,  Obama would be  LEGALLY guilty of  LACHES.”

Then tell them that “Google is their friend“, so they can go look up LACHES !!!

    Our president had already showed his US passport to;

    1. Get a Passport; http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2008/03/20/obamas

    I feel sorry for all the little Birthers, It’s not their fault; it’s your families’ fault that taught you that you were better than other people based on race, creed ethnicity, color, nationality or sex, in short they engrained in you their hate (what a legacy).

    But you know at some point you need to grow up and act like an adult and think for yourself and distinguish what is true and what is BS.

    But there is where the little Birthers find yourself because we all know it was never about a birth certificate or grades, because we all know you want to go around wearing white sheets, burn crosses and hang people who are not like you, we know that your growth is stunted in your hate, and hate is what this is all about, you will never win anymore, and I feel sorry for all of you. I can only imagine when our President is re-elected what you phonies will lie about next. Oh, and just know, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it’s a duck, the little Birthers are a bunch of racists!

    Thank you for your comment!!! I am minutes away from publishing another Internet Article about the alleged “racism” angle.

    Uh, Sqeeky? Laches refers to the PLAINTIFF sitting on his rights. Obama is not a plaintiff.

  • GeorgetownJD

    Also, laches is an affirmative defense — meaning it is raised by the defendant to bar the plaintiff’s claim, and it is available in equitable actions, not actions at law. The doctrine of laches is based upon maxim that equity aids the vigilant and not those who slumber on their rights.

    Here is an example of an equitable claim that might be barred by laches:

    Your neighbor constructs a fence along the property between your lot and his lot. You discover that the fence is 12 inches inside of your property, but you don’t do anything about for several years. Then, you decide to sell your house and you want to get your neighbor to move the fence to the property line so it no longer encroaches upon your property, so you bring a suit against your neighbor seeking the equitable remedy of an injunction requiring the fence be set back 12 inches. He raises the defense of laches — in other words, that you have known about the encroachment for years but slept on your rights. If the court agrees, it will not enforce the property line and will decline to compel your neighbor to move the fence.

      Hi Georgetown JD!!!

      That is the same example that it said when I first learned about LACHES. In my Internet Article I said this:

      “Let’s pretend all of Obama and the Obotski’s whining, crying, and chest-thumping about how wrong it was for Obama to have to cough up his long form birth certificate —was in that imaginary court!”

      Sooo, in that scenario, Obama and the Obotski would be the Plaintiffs, and us Birthers the Defendants. Sooo, if I am reading all this stuff right, we could say Obama was guilty of sitting back and letting this happen around him.

      A Obot named ObotBR549, or something like that, at the Gratewire Forum told me some of the same stuff you just did, so I came back and tried to make this Internet Article easier to understand. I am sorry if I didn’t succeed.

    Okay, let’s take your example. Obama is the plaintiff. What is the claim or legal right that he unreasonably delayed in bringing? What is the recovery that he is seeking that should be barred as a result of his delay?

    See, it only works when a birther is the plaintiff. For example, a birther was a candidate whose party nominated him to be on the ballot for the presidential race. Obama was on the ballot. The birther candidate could have brought an election contest suit before the ballots were printed, under a state law providing for candidates to be challenged. Instead, the birther candidate delays until after the election and in fact brings his suit on the day of the inauguration. He could have done it earlier, but he slumbered on his right to challenge Obama. Laches would be a defense and the court would decline to aid the birther candidate.

    Georgetown JD:

    Obama unreasonably delayed releasing his long form. Therefore, he can’t complain either about the numbers of birthers, the intensity of their belief, or their insistence that he was covering up something like being born in Kenya. Because Obama could have nipped this in the bud way back in 2008.

    Yet, The World’s Most Transparent President sat back and watched the numbers of birthers increase, presumably, in hindsight, to gain some sort of political advantage. Plus, on what I was reading, this would be “dirty hands”, if he was trying to be Intentionally Divisive or Machiavellian (who I am going to do a Internet Article on pretty soon!!!)

    There are some rumors that just aren’t going to go away, like the Moon Landing Denier stuff, sooo to that extent I cut Obama some slack. But there was never any need for Birtherism to get a big as it did without bad behavior on Obama’s part, too. This is what the KISS Matrix (2.0 now) is all about. All of the reasons to delay resolving this on his part were BAD reasons.

    1. KIDS. Obama has a bunch of Kids for advisers, who think this is funny???
    2. IGNORANT. Obama was too ignorant to think of the simple answer.
    3. SNOBBY. Obama thought Americans were too stupid to believe the REAL THING!
    4. SLIMY. Obama thought it was OK to make some Americans look crazy if it got him votes.

    Plus, from what I read on this LACHES stuff, it isn’t that the Plaintiff doesn’t have some good argument. For example, Obama could say “But you never should have doubted me.” And who knows, maybe he is right. BUT, people did ask, and as a president, he should have done his best to solve the problem. Instead of not letting a good crisis go to waste.

      Sorry, Squeekers, but Obama delaying in releasing his long form is not a cause of action. Laches refers to the unreasonable delay in bringing a lawsuit. So let me focus you again: What hypothetical lawsuit could Obama bring against the birthers that would allow the birthers, as defendants, to raise the defense of laches? Remember, it has to be a suit in equity — asking the court to grant nonmonetary relief — since laches is an equitable defense.

    In The Court of Imagi Nation

    My name is Barack Obama, aka THE PLAINTIFF.

    I am suing all the Birthers and people who stirred up the Birthers.

    I am suing them because they say that I am not from America, but maybe Kenya, and am not a Natural Born Citizen.

    My damages are that my feelings are really hurt, and I have experienced extreme emotional distress.

    Plus, they have just libeled and slandered the heck out of me and made it hard to run a country.

    Plus, I (thru my Team, the Democrats)got SHELLACKED in the Mid Term Elections!!!

    I have had to endure three years of this living HELL!!!

    So There!!!

    Barack Obama

    In The Court of Imagi Nation
    Birther Answer To Lawsuit

    The Plaintiff, Barack Obama, is just full of it!!!

    He was asked for his long form birth certificate THREE YEARS ago.

    In spite, of this, he just LACHEED all over the place and wouldn’t cough it up until Squeeky Fromm’s very good youtube video, “Show Me The BirthFAX” came out on April 26, 2011.

    Then, when he knew the jig was up, and all the Obotski lies were going to be shown for what they were, he FINALLY coughed it up!!!

    Therefore, he sat back and watched and tried to play everybody for three years, and he has dirty hands, and he should be dismissed AFTER Dr. Orly Taitz gets to do Discovery on him, and the original papers in Hawaii.

    So There Back To Him!!!
