Wrong: News Producer Hammers Mike Huckabee 
Over Birther Issue; Obama Raised In Indonesia!?

As some may know Fox News host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee ended his Fox News Channel show so he can explore a 2016 presidential run. It didn't take long for the left to pounce lie...

Excerpt via Rachel Maddow's Producer Steve Benen @ MSNBC:

Huckabee ends Fox show, eyes new national campaign 
And for all the perceptions about Huckabee’s jovial persona, it’s important not to overlook an ugly mean streak. Huckabee has been a birther, falsely claiming that President Obama “grew up in Kenya”; he endorsed the “death panel” garbage; and in August 2009, he argued on his radio show that the Affordable Care Act would have forced Ted Kennedy to commit suicide were the celebrated senator not already dead. [...] MSNBC.

The reality is Mike Huckabee was never really a Birther (at least publicly). Huckabee mistakenly said Obama was raised in Kenya when in fact Obama was partially raised in Indonesia. He never said Obama was born in Kenya.

I thought the Left's definition of Birther was someone that believes Obama was not born in Hawaii?

According to MSNBC's Chris Matthews Obama was born in Indonesia. Does that make Matthews a Birther?

According to Obama, himself, he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. Does that make Obama a Birther?


Does that sound like a Birther to you?
