Wingnuts may be deranged, but they're nothing if not creative. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett pestered Hawaiian officials into providing him even more verification that President Obama was born in Hawaii, but this was just a speed bump on Bennett's Conspiracy Highway.
Kids! Are you ready for the new, improved Reverse Birther theory? Ken Bennett has taken the ludicrous, false not-Birther rubbish from Beritbart.com and fashioned it into a brand new baby of a conspiracy, ready for the loons to propagate. And propagate they will.
Secretary of State Ken Bennett says he’s convinced Obama was born in Hawaii, but he now believes the president fraudulently claimed to be born in Kenya so he could get into college. He also believes the president has spent millions of dollars since then to cover it up.
The co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s campaign in Arizona, Bennett made the comments recently at an event where he pleaded for local Republicans to unite behind their party’s presumptive nominee for president. He told them a world under Obama is “just very, very scary.”
“Now, I know there’s a lot of people that are very skeptical as to whether he was born in Hawaii,” Bennett told the crowd. “Personally I believe that he was. I actually believe he was fibbing about being born in Kenya when he was trying to get into college and doing things like writing a book and on and on and on.”
