Let’s say the rumors about President Obama’s non-American birth came up before the election (which they did), and let’s say they came to the attention of the White House watchdog, Vice-President Dick Cheney (which I’m sure they did).

Now, you’re the party in control of the country’s entire government resources, and somebody delivers a political morsal like that?

That rumor has been long ago vetted six ways to Sunday by the party in control. And I’m sure the potential for a paper trail embarrassment over the results was considered and addressed (read buried).

And, I think the potential for a Republican admission of that is about as far-fetched as Cheney also turning over his appointment calendar for his days at Halliburton. Or the Nixon missing tapes being found, or Clinton’s executive office daily diary being discovered.
