    mad Mike Huckabee says "Obama Grew Up in Kenya"

    Can candidates seriously be this stupid?

    ALZBERG: Donít you think itís fair also to ask him, I know your stance on this. How come we donít have a health record, we donít have a college record, we donít have a birth cer - why Mr. Obama did you spend millions of dollars in courts all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate. Itís one thing to say, Iíve ó youíve seen it, goodbye. But why go to court and send lawyers to defend against having to show it? Donít you think we deserve to know more about this man?

    HUCKABEE: I would love to know more. What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American. When he gave the bust back to the Brits ó

    yes they can. I think Huckabee is an honest man, for the most part and as politicians go, and accept he mispoke. But stupid **** dies a hard death in the political world.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No doubt. Howard Dean's hyawww has to be the best example of that. Talk about a campaign killer. I definitely think it was a slip of the tongue, since he has defended Obama so many times in the past. However, why even take the chance and get interviewed by someone who is going to ask questions as dumb as:

    Huckabee Explains Comments About Obama's Childhood Years - FoxNews.com
    During the interview Malzberg brought up the "birther" questions with Huckabee, asking the former Arkansas governor if "we deserve to know more about this man?"

    "We don't have a birth certificate, why Mr. Obama did you spend millions of dollars all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate?" Malzberg said.
    And I don't feel his response was satisfactory. Talk about not answering the question.

    "I would love to know more about this man, but what I do know is troubling enough," Huckabee responded. "But one thing I do know: his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, is very different than the average American."
    Hey Huckabee, how about saying, "Dude, clearly this guy is American. Stop making this party look dumb by continuing to bring it up." Now that's an answer.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    I agree that's a much better answer. I would have loved him doing just that.

    In the 21st century, The Republican Party continues its late 20th century of campaign against anything that isn't white, Protestant or from the South. Let's just say Obama had grown up in Kenya. So the **** what? Are we all supposed to grow up in Nowheresville, USA?

    Meh. I think he just got Kenya and Indonesia mixed up in his head. Not sure what the big deal is.

    Mostly because birthers will fire up again. And the question was really odd, unless you're a birther.

    We all knew Huckabee is insane, but apparently he's also just a typical Republican liar.
