The birther movement, and conspiracy theories in general, are little more than the fuel that drives the internet and the globally linked, instant
access society, in which we live.
This particular movement is beginning to bore me and bother me at the same time. A few months ago it looked like it was starting to fade away but then
it pops back up with the recent media exposure its been getting. Now what bothers me, is that it is getting the attention it is from certain elected
individuals who are purely getting involved to "make the news". It is designed to be a distraction and nothing more. Any opportunity to make life
difficult for whoever is in power at the time.
Now as a liberal, I am proud to say that I can pull my head out of the sand every once in awhile to look around and try to put things in perspective.
Think back to 2001. Bush stole the election, he deserted from National Guard, he was behind the swift boat adds.....
Standard politics, only from a different view. I was actually waiting for Obama to wheel out a huge cardboard copy of his BC (like those big checks
they give lottery winners) at the end of his press conference, but he looked tired and just wanted to go to bed.
And I do believe he is a citizen and I do believe Bush stole the election. But this is now and that was then.
