That's not the case of Obama, who defeated John McCain and Sarah Palin's bid for the presidency in 2008.
Palin was discussing, in the video clip below, how the media is entangled in this circus centered on Christine O'Donnell and her high school and college years - and she's just a candidate for Delaware's open Senate seat! However, when Obama was running for President and elected, we've heard little about his past.
Obama is somewhat elusive. Before 2008, it appeared as if the Clintons would be back in office via Hillary. Obama was just another obscure senator that relatively few people outside of Illinois had ever heard of.
His mother was white, his father a Kenyan. He's got family living in Africa, and there are conspiracy theorists who believe that Obama wasn't actually born in the US. Given the importance of these claims, you'd think this would be something people would look in to.
However, Christine O'Donnell admits "dabbling in witchcraft" and all of a sudden she's "crazy" and "unfit."
Was Sarah Palin using Obama's middle name to emphasize the conspiracy theories? Was she stating something without actually stating it? What's your thoughts on the H-word bomb?
