|The comical Presidency.

Words words words.
One of the hallmarks of Mr. Bush's term as acting-president was to knowingly do things that would backfire. Moving to privatize Social Security, invading Iraq without a plan, firing the Iraqi army, apologizing to the Chinese for knocking down one of our spy planes, et cetera. Obama has plagiarized much of the Bush platform, including the decisions doomed to fail. The birth certificate he released is oddly formatted, opening more conspiracy theories:
... They appear as text but also contain glyphs, dots, lines, boxes, squiggles, and random garbage. They’re not combined or merged in any way. Quite simply, they look like they were created programmatically, not by a human.
... What’s not plausible is that the government spent all this time manufacturing Obama’s birth certificate only to commit the laughably rookie mistake of exporting the layers from Photoshop, or whatever photo editing software they are meant to have used. It’s likely that whoever scanned the birth certificate in Hawaii forgot to turn off the OCR setting on the scanner. ...
That the layers are misinterpretations from the software will never be accepted by the teahadists. This latest blunder will keep the birther conspiracy going hot for months to come, and chain letters about the "photoshopped" birth certificate will circulate during election time.
The Liberal Media's observations of racism are so mean and unfair. A comment by user prrolg:
