In a two-day swing by U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio through the Panhandle, the most conservative part of Florida, perhaps it was inevitable that the question would come up. At a Republican club meeting last night in Miramar Beach, a young man asked Rubio whether he thought President Barack Obama has a valid American birth certificate.After he was safely away from his constituents, Rubio clarified...
"I don't know the answer to that,'' Rubio said. "He's been sworn in already...If someone had evidence they should have presented it a long time ago."
Pressed after the meeting about whether he has any doubts about Obama's citizenship, Rubio would only say,"I have not see anything that says he was not born in the U.S."Is Marco Rubio that desperate for votes that he feels that he needs to appeal to the fringe elements of the Radical Right, or does he really not know whether our President is a U.S. citizen?
Either position is rather disturbing and it may be one reason why the South Florida Diaz-Balart brothers endorsed Charlie Crist way back in July.
