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.

The U.S. Constitution says only “a natural born citizen” may serve as president. The challengers allege that Obama was born in Kenya, rather than Hawaii. They claim his Hawaii birth certificate is a forgery.

      Your right no one has the Balls to challenge this POS, why? should be real concerning for people. As for the nineth Circuit Court, Give it up they are Nasty corupt and LIberal and LOOK where they are from SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. land of Boxer and Feinstein, and worst, need there be anymore said.

    Anyone with Photoshop and Illustrator can prove to himself the official copy released by Obama is a forgery. But no one on the Democrat side gives a mouse’s posterior about the constitutionality of this Imposter. Anyway you look at it, he is a dismal failure and a complete deceiver. Let’s dump this poser in 2012.

    They will NEVER give up this assinine pursuit. There is none so blind as he who will not see. You could have the birth on video and they’ll just say it was “doctored”. So there is no “winning” on this issue and there will be no end. They’ve already lost the fight….the only thing they’re losing now is credibility. But when your entire life is being orchestrated by the gibberish spewed forth from the drug-addicted gasbag Rush Limpbrain, the truth is nowhere to be found.

      No court has ruled, or will ever rule, that Obama is a natural born citizen. How could it?
