I agree with the OP that the whole birther movement, if not entirely created by them, was co-opted and used as a ploy for a long time. Much like the
straw man "holographic planes on 911" crap, put out there to discredit and distract.
I've been saying this all along, while the birthers waste their time arguing over a stupid birth certificate, they've completely ignored doing
ANYTHING to remove the SOB from office. There are ample reasons to dislike Obama as president, and they knew that going in, no one including Obama
expected a free ride, he took over with several wars already in progress and an economic crash being engineered.
I've said this right off the bat, if there were ANY validity to any of the birther claims, the rabbid dogs that are the republicans would have had a
field day with it. Obama could have simply released all the information up front, but how would that help demonize his opponents?
I think that is the vague notion the OP was hinting at. i agree, no proof what so ever has been presented on this, but I tend to agree that at the
very least (like 911) this was used to their advantage.
This whole birther garbage hasn't hurt Obama at all. What it has done is make it easy to label anyone who doesn't like Obama as a racist idiot,
pointing at the birth certificate fiasco as evidence of this.
A cleverly orchestrated diversion and it's worked lock stock and barrel on most.
I don't care where he was born, he's a douche and hasn't helped the US at all, he didn't cause the problems he inherited but he sure did make them
worse. If I were an american i wouldn't spend any time on this BC nonsense, I'd be out at the grass roots level education people on why Obama is a
bad president, presenting FACTS and INFORMATION.
