Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) says he isn’t a birther. But that apparently won’t stop him from expressing skepticism about where President Obama grew up.
The potential 2012 presidential contender is continued his current promotional tour for his new book A Simple Government on “The Steve Malzberg Show” last Monday night. And while he didn’t agree with radio-host Malzberg saying Obama spent “”millions of dollars in courts all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate,” Huckabee added his own twist on questioning the President’s past.“One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American,” said the Fox host. “If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.”
For the record, Obama was raised in Hawaii and Indonesia. His first trip to Kenya wasn’t until the 1980s.
