Why won’t Michele Bachmann come clean about her views on President Obama’s birth certificate? For a congresswoman who flaunts suspicions about the U.S. Census, foreign currencies, the Federal Reserve and Obama’s allegedly “anti-American views,” she’s been strangely silent on the rampant (and roundly disproven) rumor spread by so-called “birthers” that Obama was born outside the United States.
Bachmann isn’t yet, for example, counted among the 10 Republican co-sponsors of U.S. Rep. Bill Posey’s H.R. 1503, a bill requiring presidential candidates to provide copies of their birth certificates. But a lot of her friends are, as Daniel Nichanian at Campaign Diaries points out:
Interestingly, [U.S. Reps. Dan] Burton and [Kenny] Marchand’s [sic] addition to the list means that a majority of the Posey bill’s sponsors are now also co-sponsors of Michele Bachmann’s paranoid foreign currency-banning constitutional amendment (the other 3 are Posey, [U.S. Reps. Marsha] Blackburn and [John Abney] Culberson). We are here talking about the congressmen who are closest to movement conservatives.
(Nichanian may mean to say that half the sponsors of the birther bill also back Bachmann’s, but that’s still a swell segment.)
Bachmann’s fans, such as one who left this comment at Bachmann’s YouTube channel, are begging her to probe the whereabouts of Obama’s birth certificate:
