Jeesh, this news flash shows a) how desperate Republican politicians have become trying to scare their base into action, and b) what kind of snakes their politicians are.
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) is apologizing after being caught on tape delivering a birther rant about how President Obama is “not an American.” “I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don’t know that,” Coffman said at a fundraiser last week. “But I do know this, that in his heart, he’s not an American. He’s just not an American,” he said, local NBC affiliate 9NEWS reports.
This is the kind of lies GOP Congressman use to energize their gullible, dimwitted, partisan audiences, but when those remarks get disseminated to a larger, saner audience, the Congressman runs for cover!
But now, Coffman, who has tried to paint himself as a moderate, is backtracking. “I misspoke and I apologize,” he said in a statement. “I have confidence in President Obama’s citizenship and legitimacy as President of the United States. … I don’t believe the president shares my belief in American Exceptionalism,” he explained.
You can't have it both ways asshole! Do you believe our President is an American or not? Was he born in the United States or not? Who did you lie to, your partisan, "We believe everything bad about Obama no mater how stupid" base, or the rest of your constituents?
