Appeals Court Tosses Obama Birthplace Challenge

(12-22) 11:12 PST San Francisco (AP) --

A federal appeals court has tossed out a lawsuit challenging President Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship and his eligibility to serve as commander in chief.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that none of the challengers had legal standing to file the lawsuit on Jan. 20, 2009, the day Obama was inaugurated. The unanimous three-judge panel cited various reasons for disqualifying six sets of plaintiffs, who included Obama's political rivals, taxpayers and military personnel.

It's the latest legal setback for the so-called birther movement, which has filed multiple lawsuits, so far with no success.

1. It's one thing to be crazy enough to believe the birther theory, but

an entirely different thing to physically go to the courthouse and file a damn lawsuit!!

5. And they use YouTube reports to back up

Their story. Now don't we all believe everything on that source. All the filets of these suits should have mental tests.
