The Courts Have Ruled

I'm away from home but I see in yesterday's Spokesman Review that Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers finally set to rest that Barack Obama is in fact a citizen.

Spin Control: Do you have any doubts that Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States and constitutionally entitled to be president?

McMorris Rodgers: I have looked into it further. There’s a reality that it’s been in the courts, the courts have ruled that he is indeed a legal citizen, born in the country, and I think it’s a nonissue.

Interestingly enough, I haven't found where a court has ruled this. The Supreme Court denied an appeal for a case that was trying to stop the election in New Jersey and denied to hear a Pennsylvania case where an attorney claims Obama is not a citizen.

Regardless, this all happened months ago. It's nice to see McMorris Rodgers catch up with the times on this "I'd like to see the documents" nonissue.
