Scott went on to say that Obama was not born in America and referenced socialism, Cuba and Russia.
“People who tell the truth, they’re very easy to … their actions prove it. Something as simple providing a birth certificate. Come on. … There needs to be accountability for the truth. I don’t care if you’re the president of the United States, you need to be held accountable.”
Scott is certainly not alone in those views, and he received a lot of support for expressing his opinion. But negative reaction cascaded, too, with some bloggers saying that evidence Obama was born in Hawaii is overwhelming and that Scott must be a racist or a moron, or both.
There are those who say that there is evidence Obama was born in Hawaii. Others say there is not. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I wish David Broder had lived long enough to tell us that both sides are wrong about where Obama was born. Maybe Rick Klein do the honors for us.
Also too, the phallic imagery about “the feel of his Colt .45″….creepy.
