Quote of the Week: 'We are happy with the result...'

"We are happy with the result and hope this brings an end to the ongoing litigation over President Obama’s qualifications."

—Gerard Stranch, an attorney for the Tennessee Democratic Party, in a statement responding to a federal judge’s decision to dismiss a lawsuit that aimed to remove President Barack Obama’s name from the ballot in Tennessee. Filed by Knoxville lawyer Van Irion on behalf of the Liberty Legal Foundation, the lawsuit’s contention that President Obama is not a “natural-born citizen” was deemed “frivolous and without any arguable basis in law.”
