    Trump used the birthers to get the attention he craves. Maybe it's the art of the con. A con has to be simple enough that rubes won't feel insulted. The pea in the shell ripoff is what passed in movie culture for ridiculing the rube: how can't the hayseed fool not see the con?

    And that's the premise to the OP. The con requires the rube to need to believe the con.

    But the Trump cons actually cover up the actual problem that gives them the credibility they need to be successful cons. There really was one pea and three shells, and pea had to go somewhere, and people wanna know …. where. Did Obama's upbringing in Indonesia make him see the US use of power is different from how most of us view even Yankee Capitalism being a force for good … overall? Shouldn't Hillary really have been charged with disseminating secret materials? Can children of serving politicians use their parents' power to enrich themselves and families?

    And that's why I gave up on the gop. Not because W abandoned conservatism. Not because the gop stopped being a party were people on both sides of the abortion issue have valid conservative reasons for their positions. Those issues have answers that are not perfect, but as least address the issues honestly.

    JFK had to address whether his wealth and religion made him view America differently. Reagan had to address why he abandoned liberalism and the view that govts job is to offer a hand up. (I never thought he answered the question adequately btw. The democratic party's walk away on for policy was obvious, but Reagan's views on medicare or even Medicaid were never mainstream). HW Bush kept his kids separate from his own wealth that was in blind trust he had no access to see. W likewise put his money where there couldn't be any influence. No one accused him personally of making money in Iraq.

    None of it came from Obama, you moron. Almost everything in his bio was printed in newspapers at that time and available to her. As far as listed Obama's father's birth country of Kenya, that's an easy mistake to make since they have the same name.

    They won't. They can't. The OP was right about A Birther Thing. It took 8 years for a mulitracial POTUS to pull this country out of the biggest economic shit hole it has seen since the Great Depression and the only thing they see is a Lazy Ni@@er in the WH.
