Kirsten Powers: Obama should have let the Birther frenzy go on

Powers was on Fox Business’ Freedom Watch tonight to discuss the potential winners and losers of the final chapter in the birther diaries, which, like many, host Judge Andrew Napolitano was glad to see dissipate. Asked whether she believed there was a silver lining, Powers replied that she saw “nothing good come of it” and that the entire deal, particularly Donald Trump’s involvement in the issue, was a “low point” in American politics. But beyond the potential disgrace of the matter, Powers was “kind of disappointed” that the President put the issue to rest. “Politically, it was damaging to Republicans,” she noted, as it made Republicans look crazy and reports were circulating that Republican strategists wanted nothing but “for this to go away.”
