Because, as Richard Fernandez says, they, and a growing part of the electorate who don’t care about the birth certificate, don’t trust Obama.
“At least part of this mistrust springs from the reticence of Obama himself. He has cloaked his school records and civil documents in confidentiality and it was normal to wonder at the contents of a locked box. It is impossible to understand the birth certificate drama without realizing that was never about the birth certificate document. It was about building or destroying trust in Obama.”
UPDATE: For instance, Osama was supposedly “quickly buried at sea.” If this was Bush in office, nobody in the media would buy that. It’s truly touching that they’re buying it when Barry is prez. But why should anyone else? Something is fishy here, and it’s more than the O Man.
