I have no idea whether the "rumors" mentioned below are true.  But of course, it's beyond important (as everyone knows) to be very circumspect  about "rumors" that would accrue to the benefit of Team Clinton.

After all, if Hillary doesn't actually have any dirt on the Obamas, the next best thing would be to invent a fable that's reported and speculated on at length by righties.  That has the dual advantage of allowing falsehoods (that benefit Hillary) to circulate -- and then presenting her (or other Democrats) with the opportunity to blame the "vast right wing conspiracy" for spreading and popularizing them.

Paranoia?  Perhaps.  But you know the old saying -- "Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you."
