Back in the day, many conservatives believed Barack Obama may not be qualified to be President because he was actually born in Kenya. These conservatives were called Birthers, and they did and still do believe a conspiracy exists concealing this disqualification. However, most conservatives never bought the idea. At the time no one knew where this rumor stemmed from, and most on the left decided it must stem from the fact that Obama was black. Or … you know. Half black. But black nonetheless apparently. But it wasn’t a new idea; several people over the years had mentioned that they thought Barack was indeed born in Kenya. Now we know that the origin of Barack Obama being born in Kenya is Barack Obama himself, having had a literary agent write it in promotional material back in 1991. Obviously this stuff stuck in people’s heads, they believed it, and as the memory of it surfaced and the junior senator became President, his own lie became the seed of a conspiracy theory for the far right that would eventually be the blow that would remove Donald Trump as a candidate for President when Barack Obama finally released his Hawaiian birth certificate. I recite this interesting material because a similar but much more far-reaching scenario has now played out in favor of Mitt Romney.
