Approval Rating Plummets, Cue up Birth Certificate Story

Is it me or does the media bring up the birth certificate issue every time Obama’s approval rating takes a dip, or a nosedive in this case?

The Buzz from the staff at the Tampa Bay Times just posted the following headline at its blog:

Cliff Stearns on Obama birth certificate: ‘Is it legitimate?’

The Buzz headline is a bit misleading. It sounds like out of the blue Rep. Stearns has called for an investigation into Obama’s birth certificate. However, his comments took place over two weeks ago at a town hall in which he was asked by his constituent about Obama’s birth certificate. Stearns went on to say “We’re going to have an election in five or six months so we can change the course of history by electing someone other than Obama”.

Is the media trying to shift focus away from the real issues of the day like skyrocketing energy costs & an anemic economy in order to give Obama cover as the campaign season shifts into high gear?
