Rove tactic used on president

With regard to the article on (President) Obama not being a citizen (“Locals ask sheriff to investigate Obama,” Journal, May 9), I’d like to add a few comments.
First of all, I agree, it wasn’t worth front-page news. It’s pretty simple what this is all about. Right out of Karl Rove’s handbook, “If you keep throwing something out there, people who are not keeping up, might say that is continually seeing this, may believe it is true,” and getting close to election time, it is a way of selling an untruth.
Just like fishing, keep throwing the line out there, and someone will bite on it. Plus, to top it off, it doesn’t cost any money!
