So true! The White House loves the "birthers". To independent voters (i.e. the voters who will decide the next Presidential election), "Birthers" appear STUPID. Don't ever expect to see a birth certificate.
The GOP is in a bit of a quandary. Half of the party consists of the blue-blood, conservative, establishment elites, and the other half are the conservative, tea-party, back-woods, whack-jobs.
