Right wing radio host Rush Limbaugh has been known to indulge in some pretty bizarre conspiracy theories about President Obama, including the 'birther' movement, and as Obama's birthday approaches, Limbaugh threw another bone to that movement with a quip about the President's birth certificate:
Tomorrow is Obama's birthday, not that we've seen any proof of that... What? We haven't seen any proof of that! They tell us August 4th is the birthday; we haven't seen any proof of that! Sorry. It is what it is.
With the midterm elections looming, Republican leaders are probably loathe to see a figure on the right as powerful as Limbaugh giving any credence to the thoroughly discredited 'birthers.'
