    After all, politicians don't fight over the hardline opposition voters; they're fighting to win the independent/middle vote where people are still open to changing their minds.

    True but I suspect that many moderates or at least the more informed variety, didn't and still don't care beyond finding the birthers discomfort, mildly amusing. But then my impression of the birthers is that most aren't terribly bright or are media manipulators and limelight opportunists like Trump.

I have no doubt that there are still plenty of fools who fall for the trick - but they fall for every trick.

    If Obama was actually an alien, technically his election would be noll and void, and I believe Biden would become president as a result. A president has to be born in the United States as stipulated in the Constitution(or be a citizen at the time of its adoption, but that's moot point now since that was 1789).

    It is, however, rather unlikely that he will admit to his foreign origin. So whatever the facts: it is too late.

    I don't know, it sort of looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from viewing quite a view shops in my time.

    He probably thinks it's no big deal. Let his daughter do it in Paint.

    What is the big deal, I mean why shouldn't a naturalized citizen be able to become president of the USA? The law might have had relevance in 1789 to prevent a British president, but what is the issue now?
