Haven't we gotten over Obama and his absentee birth certificate? Apparently Mike Huckabee is building up his conspiracy theory arsenal for the 2012 election, claiming that President Obama grew up in Kenya.
Huckabee spoke on The Steve Malzberg Show and let this gem slip…
"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," Huckabee said in response.
"If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather," Huckabee added.
Huckabee later retracted his statements, stating he misspoke and believes the President was born in Hawaii.
He fortunately was able to backstep before Obama was able to volley back his his own claim of Huckabee's birth place. If I were the president, I'd claim that Huckabee is from Mars, putting a serious dent in the theory of intelligent life on other planets.
