That's pretty much how all conspiracy theorists are. If you prove they were were wrong about X, they point you to Y, prove Y is wrong, they point you to Z.... never ends. But the president and his people are also to blame, because they allowed the "birther" movement to grow and intentionally fueled it by not disproving it immediately. They did so because it was "good politics" for them, only releasing it once it became "bad politics" for them.

This spins back to another reason why people speculate Obama oddly refuses to release his college records. Some think that even though he was in fact born in Hawaii, he lied to the various colleges to gain easier acceptance as a foreign student by claiming he was an international, thus abusing diversity metrics.

Seriously. No hockey means I login here briefly once or twice a day (or sometimes not at all )
