This is just another cynical, racist attack on Obama. If you can't attack his positions, make veiled references to him being muslim, hint that he's not really American, etc. It's all a xenophobic attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator with ridiculous claims that Obama can't disprove. He can't not disprove them because they're not true, but because there is no way to. How can you prove that a birth certificate isn't forged just because some determined "truther" keeps asserting it is? Have you been to Honolulu or whever the county seat is to look at the records?
Quit kidding yourself that this is about some secret conspiracy being hidden by the mainstream media, the trilateral commission, the council on foreign relations or whoever else the truthers are on about today. It's just good old fashioned xenophobia and racism. End of story.
