WASHINGTON, (AP) -- Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has rejected two more efforts to get the court to consider whether President-elect Barack Obama is eligible to take office.
Kennedy on Wednesday denied without comment an appeal by Philip J. Berg, a Pennsylvania attorney, that claims Obama is either a citizen of Kenya or Indonesia and is ineligible to be president . . .

I have a feeling that the SCOTUS is gunshy about getting involved in another election since the 2000 debacle.
This is simply a P.R. move.
Is it over?
For your various certifiGate ping lists
Or, there could genuinely be nothing to this stuff, as many of us have said for some time. Nahh, that couldn’t be it. USSC has to be corrupt.
SCOTUS needs to put out a clear and concise statement as to why they are doing this. If the people of this country have questions, by the millions, they deserve an answer. Either that or forget our Constitution and the laws.
Wait till foreign nations decide they can use it against us. Feces will contact the air circulation device.
At The Supreme Court It’s Kennedy’s World.
Speaking for myself, I do not believe any story that has “AP” on it. It needs corroboration.
Why does this not come as a shock?
I agree with you. There is NOTHING to this "stuff" - That is exactly what Obama has produced - NOTHING to show what hospital he was born in!
Nahh, that couldnt be it. USSC has to be corrupt.
***They just lack courage, that’s all. When you argue against the “they have to be corrupt” statement, that’s a classic fallacy known as straw argumentation. You built up the argument yourself so you could argue against it. Why are you resorting to troll like behaviour and provacateur tactics if your intellectual position is so secure?
As Rush says ... it’s a sit-com .....
They go out of their way to make up law in Roe v. Wade that divides the nation for decades, yet they won’t get involved in a basic Constitutional question that goes to the very nature of Presidential eligibility.
The latter of which takes little more than a prove up of a birth certificate.
The mere fact they won’t consider this is further proof we are governed by elitists who don’t give a rat’s ass about anyone except themselves. Cowards all.
‘It’ isn’t true, so there will be nothing for them to say.
As disappointing as it may be, Barry O is a United States citizen, he was born in Hawaii and his mother is American and lived in America when she birthed him. That makes him a US citizen.... Please stop wasting your braincells on this dry well of a non-story.
If there was even a hint of a possibility that Barry O wasn’t qualified because of a citizenship question, it would have been looked at by the Justices. It hasn’t been and it won’t be and you can huff, you can puff and you can blow all you want, but you won’t bring down the ‘House of Obama’ by pursuing this ‘red herring’.
From the article: “Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961 to an American mother and a Kenyan father.” OH! Ok well that settles it then, huh? Disgusting.
