ABC News: Donald Trump's Political 'Pit Bull': Meet Michael Cohen--Not What You Might Think, Top Trump Aide Voted For Obama In 2008
The man behind Donald Trump's possible 2012 presidential campaign is a registered Democrat who voted for Barack Obama in 2008.
Not only that, but Michael Cohen, an executive at the Trump Organization who doubles as Trump's chief political adviser, once volunteered for 1988 presidential candidate Michael Dukakis and worked for a Democratic member of Congress.
This election cycle is different. Late last year, Cohen co-founded the draft Trump website "Should Trump Run?" It has received more than 830,000 hits.
Cohen, 44, is known around the office -- and around New York -- as Trump's "pit bull." Some have even nicknamed him "Tom," a reference to Tom Hagen, the consigliore to Vito Corleone in the "Godfather" movies.

Of course an Obamabot is Trump’s chief political advisor. Cohen is doing excellent work on behalf of Obama. Birtherism is a conscious and calculated effort to get Obama reelected.
Birtherism was invented by Democrat Linda Starr, is promulgated by Democrat 9-11 Truthers, was brought back to life by Democrat Neil Abercrombie, and now is spearheaded by a Obama-voting former Democrat Congressional staffer.
The purpose of Birtherism is to ensure Obama’s reelection by saddling the GOP with an unelectable candidate. Or failing that, Trump is already talking about a possible third-party run which would obviously split Obama’s opponents and help him to reelection just as Ross Perot was critical in electing and reelecting Bill Clinton.
