Last Thursday, during a 1 hour and 20 minute news conference, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the birth certificate Obama presented online, last April, was not authentic. Arpaio’s team of investigators conducted a thorough and professional investigation, and found evidence that the long-form birth certificate was created electronically and never existed in paper form.
The news didn’t make the headlines it deserved, nationwide, because of the shocking and untimely death of conservative hero, Andrew Breitbart.
It did, however make a splash in local media.
In this refreshingly fair and balanced CBS 5 AZ report, Arpaio’s findings were dutifully reported, and the anchor noted at the end of the report, “this story is just beginning to unfold”.

Not surprisingly, CBS 5 ran into a stone wall when it contacted members of Arizona’s Congressional delegation in Washington on the findings. Only one member got back to them, saying that they believed that Obama was born in the US, period. No interest in the the investigation’s findings.
I don’t care where Obama was born, at this point, frankly. All I know is that there is something deeply suspicious about the way he has handled questions about his certificate, as many conservatives noted at the time of its release. Something is being covered up, here. I have no idea, what. But there are a lot of spineless and/or venal people helping him with the cover-up.
As long as the nationwide media ignores this story, (including conservative media) spineless politicians will ignore it, too, rather than be subjected to the thuggish Alinsky tactics of the Obamacrats.
At CPAC, Andrew Breitbart famously promised, this time, Obama will be vetted. This is part of it, folks.
