So says political commentator Ruth Ann Daily inย the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in her post-2010-elections predictions. After the predicted repudiation of Barack Obama’s agenda by voters tomorrow birther nonsense will be put to rest. Daily argues that the birther movement is just a reflection of the public frustration with Barack Obama’s administration and that once they have the opportunity to repudiate him in the polls, the birther movement will die out.
The birther movement was always counterproductive, and now the American voters have rendered it irrelevant.
It is counterproductive, and it was always irrelevant, but “put to rest”? Not likely.
