Lately, Mike Huckabee has been a one-man defense team for Michelle and Barack Obama for anything from “Let’s Move” to their religious beliefs to the issue of Obama’s citizenship, but he recently became an accidental birther:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suggested in a radio interview that President Barack Obama’s childhood in Kenya shaped his worldview — even though Obama did not visit Kenya until he was in his 20s.

The potential Republican presidential candidate told New York radio station WOR on Monday that Obama’s youth led him to resent the West, which he said explains why, in Huckabee’s view, Obama’s foreign policy differs so greatly from that of his predecessors.

“One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, (is) very different than the average American,” Huckabee said, pointing to Obama’s decision in 2009 to remove a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the Oval Office.

The Huckster’s spokesman said that Mike of course meant to say Obama gerw up in Indonesia and not Kenya.

But it was enough to make Media Matters have a mini-tizzy, which is always fun.

    Was it a Freudian Slip, or did the Lord speak through him ? Curious !

    Obumble said he was born in Kenya in a 2006 interview; his own website called Zero a "British Subject"; his vital records have gone unseen at "great" cost and effort; the Kenyan Parliament claims him as one of their own; his Wife said Kenya is his homeland – TWICE !! There`s more – MUCH more !

    While the Huck has been a disappointment on numerous occasions for a plethora of reasons, I`m not going to bug him for this "mis-statement" !

    He can say whatever he wants – as long as he doesn't announce he is running in 2012 IMO. And it is interesting that the media jumped on him for it too, cause that means they are not supporting him for the (R) candidate.

    When they start making a RINO (like McAmnesty) the media darling that is when we have to be careful.

    But what if Obama really was born in Kenya?

    Nonsense, as long as he is a good president!

    Shouldn't this guy be in jail as an accomplice to murder ?

  8. SignPainterGuy on March 3rd, 2011 10:27 pm
