Regardless of whether they have “doubts” about Obama’s eligibility to be president or whether they consider the issue a “distraction,” Republicans in Congress are repeating a common refrain: “Let’s just forget about it and focus on the next election.”
A pair of videos from earlier this week shows members of the House being confronted by voters on lingering questions about documents Obama presented as “proof” of his U.S. birth and citizenship. In both cases, the voters mentioned an investigation by Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse that concluded Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card are actually forgeries.
The responses the representatives gave were both very different and very similar.
Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., dismissed his constituents’ concerns outright.
“I think he [Obama] is our president. I think he was duly elected, and I believe he is a citizen. And I do believe [the eligibility question] is a distraction,” Flake told a meeting of the Red Mountain Tea Party in Arizona. “My job is to make sure we beat him in November.”
