In our conspiracy theory-obsessed society it's impossible for me to know what to believe and what is so much poppycock. But let's say for argument's sake the birthers are right and there has been a vast conspiracy to hide the truth of Obama's forgeign birth. My question is What does it matter? The guy has been president for 4 years and will be for 4 more. Nothing is going to come of this now - it's a moot point. Had someone had enough evidence to convince a judge (and the inevitable appeals court) to block Obama's candidacy, that would have been when it would have mattered - during the 2008 presidential campaign. No one successfully presented such evidence (presumably because none existed) effectively putting the whole issue to bed. Why continue to harp on it? The issue is over and done with and bringing it up now just makes those who do look like fringe loons.
