This barryvictim was Sen Jim Inhofe (R- OK) and the attack dog was Politico. Here Inofe’s answer to the ever-present do you support the birthers – which the anti-birthers refute by quoting conspiracy experts and urban legendists instead of asking their pink-faced pal Gibbs for a copy of the real document.
SEN INOFE: They have a point. I don’t discourage it. … But I’m going to pursue defeating [Obama] on things that I think are very destructive to America.
It wasn’t enough. It never is. Someone should tell the GOP never to use “defeat” in reference to barry. Though a reputable source would include the entire quote instead of cherrypicking what fits their attack.
Inhofe’s second attempt, which also was not enough.
From Inhofe spokesman Jared Young via GREG SARGENT:
The point that they make is the Constitutional mandate that the U.S. president be a natural born citizen, and the White House has not done a very good job of dispelling the concerns of these citizens. My focus is on issues where I can make a difference to stop the liberal agenda being pushed by President Obama.
