The early border skirmishes of Campaign 2012 are reviving questions about one candidate’s former pastor and shining a spotlight on the other’s high school hijinks. Can a fresh round of questions about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate be far behind?

In a campaign year when voters have declared the economy their top concern, Obama and Mitt Romney are on notice that there’s no statute of limitations on the issues or conduct that might be used against them. And there’s sure to be somebody with money or other means to insert even low-threshold matters into the political dialogue.

“It’s open season,” says Eric Dezenhall, an expert on crisis management. “This is going to be very rough.”

House Speaker John Boehner is criticizing an abandoned super PAC plan to use the Rev. Jeremiah Wright against President Barack Obama.

“Well, look, this kind of nonsense shouldn’t happen,” the Ohio Republican said in an interview taped to air Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “The election’s gonna be about the economy and getting Americans back to work. And I think Governor [Mitt] Romney’s prescriptions are much better.”

***

ABC News’ George Will this morning slammed The New York Times for its story this week outlining a proposed advertising campaign to link Rev. Jeremiah Wright and President Obama…

Radio host Laura Ingraham agreed, and offered that this controversy may hint at things to come this election year.

“This to me was a shot across the bow that if you are a wealthy … If you are a wealthy, wealthy person in the United States, you happen to be conservative, you’re going to get involved in this election, then we are going to watch everything that you do, and you sort of step over the line, you talk about past associations with President Obama, anything like that, we will try to destroy you,” Ingraham said. “The idea that he (Ricketts) was considering it was a total false narrative put forward by The New York Times to send a message to other people, don’t you dare get involved in this election, in any type of, quote, ‘controversial’ way.”

***

In the interview, Wright told Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, that he keeps a cardboard box of documents and notes detailing his experiences beginning in March 2008, when the controversy over his sermons began. “It’s a painful box to look at,” Wright said.

“Marty had me over to his home for dinner in January [2010],” Wright told Klein. “He said to me, ‘Are you keeping notes on what’s happened to you in this Obama campaign?’ I said, ‘Yes, sir, I am.’ He said, ‘Don’t publish it until after the next election. They’ll think it’s sour grapes. Wait until after 2012.’”

It was at that point, Wright told Klein, that he decided to leave the box untouched, at least for now. “I don’t look at the box,” Wright said. “I haven’t looked at it since I’ve been to Marty’s house.”

“[Marty] said, ‘Don’t write that until after 2012,” Wright said. “I said, ‘I’m not.’ [He said] ‘Don’t publish it.’ [I said] ‘I’m not.’ I haven’t even looked at it. I’ve just put all of it in one box and said I would get to it later.”

***

“I will fight hard for Obama to win. But just as his 08 campaign did, I believe we must elevate & not denigrate. This is the Obama I know”

***

“It behooves us to talk about what [Romney] did” as CEO of Bain Capital, Axelrod said. To that end, the campaign has released ads attacking Romney’s business record at the venture capital firm as “vampire” capitalism.

“We believe strongly, [as] most Americans do, we honor success, we celebrate success, but we want everybody to have a fair shot at it,” Axelrod said. “If you ask me, ‘Was Romney good at making money for himself and his partners?’ Yes. [But] if you ask me, ‘Was that a good vision for building America’s economy?’ …The answer is no.”

***

Karl Rove insisted on Sunday that attacking presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney over his work at Bain Capital will not help President Barack Obama as much as his re-election campaign expects…

“We saw that in how the Obama campaign went after him: they put a grand total of $83,000 behind their attack ad, and everybody in the media lapped it up. But let’s look at the facts: Romney invested $180 million in the company, the company made money for a while and eight years later after a flood of cheap-end steel came into the United States – principally from China – it and a number of other steel companies went under – over two years after he left Bain Capital.”

“Over time, I think, this is going to be okay for Romney, as long as he engages in it,” Rove added.

Exactly! In order to win, we need the uninformed middle of the roaders to vote our way. Obama ran as a moderate almost Republican last time, but he didn’t govern like it. We have to remind people who he is and that his governing reflects his attitude and background.

I think Romney should be tough as hell but still always take the high ground. let the various factions keep the birth, marxist, gay bath house, etc, etc, etc. up.

I think most people know something is out of order with Obama’s grades, papers, SSN, selective service and BC but are too afraid to beat the drum.

I’m pretty sure that when Obama gets dethroned, all the dirt will come out in massive quantities as people rush to sell their stories and don’t fear retribution and goober isn’t signing their checks any longer.

Going after Wright in 2012 is horrible strategy – it’s not 2008, no one cares about Obama’s background anymore. But it’s really stupid to pretend that there is some kind of moral problem with bringing up the subject. Just point out that there are much more important things to attack him on, and then do so. No need to be defensive, as though someone’s done something wrong by even making the suggestion.

Can a fresh round of questions about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate be far behind?

No mention of the fact that the first person to go public with the narrative that Barack Obama was “born in Kenya” was…

… his own publicist?

A publicist who asked authors to submit their own bio?

A publicist who failed to “fact check” the facts that were sent to her by Obama himself?

A publicist who, from 1991 to 2007, through multiple revisions, kept the “born in Kenya” text and didn’t alter it until after Obama had begun his campaign for President?

We all know that Obama is a narcissist. Does anyone really believe that Obama was unaware of that bio? For 16 years?

Does anyone think that the “born in Kenya” narrative did not originate from Obama himself?!

Well, just because we don’t vet our nominee doesn’t mean they can’t. Mitt’s faith is totally fair game. Maybe the Dems will uncover why Romeny refuses to discuss Mormon doctrine. Is it because that, in doing so, Mitt would be in violation of the blood oath he took during his Temple Endowment in 1968. what is the Mormon Council of Fifty, what role does Mitt Romney play in regards to it and what political goals does it pursue that would impact a voter’s decision come November? Many questions.

No matter what the subject matter of a thread is, he/she/it can’t seem to go a single one without bringing it up.

Flora Duh on May 20, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Code word of saying we are scared to death of this line of attack.

Painful grammar. Excruciating .

Fixed.

Del Dolemonte on May 20, 2012 at 10:34 PM

So, Hot Air is “blacking out” Breitbart’s findings by doing a front page story on it, then putting it into the left hand column so that it remains much longer than it would otherwise?

That’s some blackout.

RINO in Name Only on May 20, 2012 at 9:54 PM

Nope.

By refusing to update the story to include the refutation of the update. The way the update’s left, it looks like the story’s settled… when actually, it is growing.Are you aware that the “fact-checking error” has been uncovered as false? Are you aware that Arizona and Hawaii are in a standoff tonight over the certificate, with Arizona threatening to bar 0bama from the ballot?

You wouldn’t hear about it here until a few of us were keeping the blog updated.

And that long thread… well, it’s still there because it’s quite long… and clicks = $.

Meanwhile, there are 4 stories on Elizabeth Warren, one on Gila sputum, one on meat glue, and one on soda pop.

You forgot to offer the “dumb” choice.

Resist We Much on May 20, 2012 at 10:31 PM

No, Chioma (l4l) was what could be termed ‘dumb’ (stupid). UES obviously just a plain a$$hole liberal with the capability of education should it ever question itself.

Dr. Jerome Corsi just coming on now on Bill Cunningham show.

I forget. Mostly bcs of the influx of new trolls and not being here all the time. But is uppereastside a dick or a good guy?

Lanceman on May 20, 2012 at 10:25 PM

I haven’t been here much at all lately and have no idea who the newest batch of trolls are from the last two open regs…

I apologize. You know we libs don’t speak or write as well as cons. We are too busy being Marxist, socialist and all.

No matter what form he takes on, they all remind me of the form my neighbor’s dog leaves in my yard.

Why can’t he take the blinder off and see 0boz0 for what he really is?

I have to say I was shocked to see Sketch back off from using JW. Then again they don’t call him sketch for nothing.
I personally think JW is fair game. Why are republicans always so scared of the MSM

Uppereastside on May 20, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Dude, reading (comprehension) is fun! Try it. The Super PAC had nothing to do with Romney. Romney is afraid to use JW for the same reason John McCain was: The MSM and Democrats will go positively ape-shit with the race card. Plus, Romney knows that they will then go after the Mormon religion in toto.

JW isn’t fair game because of his religion. He is fair game because of his radical statements and the allegation that he makes concerning the bribe.

Romney, like McCain, is an establishment Republican. ERs are just part of the brie-n-chablis ruling class that makes up, what is really in effect our one party system. Just look at the hand-wringing by the Left (Clinton, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, etc) over Dick Lugar’s defeat. The man hadn’t lived in Indiana in 30 years. He was a complete Washington insider. If you are political establishment, you don’t like the rubes or the radicals. You want to stay on the cocktail party circuit and in power.

Some have similar names. For instance, one can confuse urban elitist, a dickwad, with urban infidel,a good guy. Perhaps I am confusing uppereastside with washington nearsider.

Lanceman on May 20, 2012 at 10:38 PM

Uppereastside on May 20, 2012 at 10:37 PM

Do you know how to answer a question? Oh and some libs speak and write correctly. Just not you so don’t bring anyone else into this discussion. You’re a poser.

CW on May 20, 2012 at 10:38 PM

Upper you and I both know your level of education is lower than you pretend. Again you’re a poser.

Corsi is saying that if Goolsbee can can for the release of Bain Capital records on the shows this morning, then 0bama must release his own records.

cane_loader on May 20, 2012 at 10:43 PM

if Goolsbee can can call for the release of Bain Capital records

1. I have to say I was shocked to see Sketch back off from using JW.

2. Then again they don’t call him sketch for nothing.

3. I personally think JW is fair game.

4. Why are republicans always so scared of the MSM

Uppereastside on May 20, 2012 at 10:30 PM

1. Why?

2. Who is “they”?

3. No you don’t. Prove us wrong.

4. Don’t insult our intelligence.

Del Dolemonte on May 20, 2012 at 10:44 PM

Wonder if there is a record of the info Barky sent to the publicist. It may have been on their own form. Not that it still exists at this point, tho.

Kissmygrits on May 20, 2012 at 10:44 PM

Kenyan government has commissioned a cultural museum commemorating the birthplace of Barack 0bama.

I’m just posting a few select quotes as I listen to Jerome Corsi on the Bill Cunningham show.

Now they’re discussing the Connecticut social security number.

Corsi says the Selective Service card is a forgery, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio can prove it.
