Wait… What?

I can’t make any sense of this sentence:

The question of whether President Barack Obama was born on U.S. soil will have zero impact on the 2012 campaign but could significantly damage Republicans’ prospects for retaking the White House if it lingers.

Wouldn’t “significantly damage” be a little more than “zero impact”?  Of course, Roll Call is just reporting a Republican consensus view, so I guess nonsensical contradiction is to be expected.

Speaking of Obama’s birth certificate, I’m surprised Obama didn’t choose to release it in late 2012 to embarrass the GOP right in the middle of their campaign against him (or, y’know, NOT AT ALL).  I guess that’s what happens when you have a Democratic president who only plays hardball against his own base.
