WASHINGTON, D.C. — While birtherism has long been discredited, even in conservative circles, the secret life and motivations of President Barack Obama remain a singular fascination among the Republican activists here at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
A quick spin around the CPAC book store reveals a range of narratives about the President, indicating that the market for Obama conspiracy theories is still thriving, even in his second term.
Here’s a sampling of the titles:
