As I blogged about last month, Tim Walberg (the Original Tea Partier™) has indicated in the past that he just wasn’t sure the president was a USA citizen. He then backtracked saying he was sure he was. And then, last night, he doubled back and suggested that he still isn’t sure because President Obama “hasn’t resolved it”.
At a meet-and-greet event last night in Adrian, there he went again:
Well, I’m gonna take him at his word that he’s an American citizen. I don’t know why it hasn’t been resolved other than the fact that the president hasn’t resolved it yet. So, heh! I don’t know if you can get a letter to him and ask him for that reason but…
If I had, I had to do it, I’d just simply uh…of course I hadta show my birth certificate in order to be on the ballot. But, uh, if I were going to do it, I’d call, uh, Rush Limbaugh, Alan Colmes, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch Mcconnell and, uh, maybe one justice of the Supreme Court, call them all into a room and lay out my, my uh, birth certificate on the table and maybe it’s for personal reasons I don’t want it to be shown in the media or whatever else, but say “now all of you take a look it and tell me what you find. Now go and report it. But there may be some more issues related to it that I’m not aware of.”
Funny that Walberg had to show his his birth certificate to get on the ballot for Congressman but assumes that Barack Obama didn’t have to in order to run for Senate in Illinois. Also funny that he feels it’s necessary for the president to prove himself to Rush Limbaugh and Alan Colmes, two pundits with absolutely no role to play in our government and it’s rules and regulations.
But he then takes a step too far, suggesting that impeachment is on the table:
The fact of the matter is the Executive has an awful lot of power to keep from showing certain things unless the courts will stand up to him. Or unless Congress, in majority, will stand up – up to and including impeachment. And the Republicans don’t have the majority.
But, don’t forget, he takes President Obama at his word.
