I don’t know anyone who believes Obama isn’t an American. I keep being told these people exist, mostly by press mocking them on TV, but I know many, many Republicans and not a birther among them.
Like every single conservative publication, I think there’s nothing to the story at all. But the treatment of this conspiracy theory is kind of different than all conspiracy theories involving Bush which were investigated in a very sober tone by Dan Rather and people like him.
Yes, Obama is an American, but if the press was actually fair and did their job, it is unlikely that there would even be a birther movement at all. Just a thought.
