Is it possible that a ‘serious’ candidate for the GOP nomination is waffling on the Birther issue. Why, yes it is, kids:
Governor, do you believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States?
I have no reason to think otherwise.
That’s not a definitive, “Yes, I believe he”—
Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.
(What the fuck is this statement supposed to even mean?)
But you’ve seen his.
I don’t know. Have I?
You don’t believe what’s been released?
I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night.
That came up.
And he said?
He doesn’t think it’s real.
And you said?
I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the President of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue.
Rick Perry knows he needs that bottom-fed, no-information voter that still won’t accept the President as an American. So, he throws out this ugly chum to them. I smell desperation in the winds. Ricky knows he’s in second place, and he is searching high and low for scumbag support. What exactly do you know, Rick? That is an awful lot of denial in that paragraph. Pathetic.
Update: Even Rove is screaming shut the fuck up about this.
Update 2: Rick says ‘it’s fun to poke‘ at Obama this way. Are we on a playground?
Update 3: Haley Barbour echoes Rove.
