Supreme Court Won't Hear Obama Citizenship Case

2008_12_08_obamabc.jpgThe Supreme Court has said it will not review the lawsuit questioning Barack Obama's citizenship, a controversy that has also focused on an alleged "mystery" around Obama's birth certificate. Donofrio v Welles challenged both Obama and McCain's right to run for president as being natural-born citizens of the United States. There are still some appeals in other similar lawsuits floating around out there, but it's highly unlikely these cases will be heard as well.

Good. Let's put this behind us and allow the Court to hear actually important cases and Obama to go about the business at hand: rebuilding the economy and getting this country back on track. Put the tinfoil hats away, folks. The Supreme Court would never undermine the country's election of a President. Well, most of the time.
