Skip to comments.Tom Delay – proud 'birther'
Posted on 08/19/2009 6:32:18 PM PDT by RobinMasters
WASHINGTON Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay pulled no punches on Chris Matthews "Hardball"show on MSNBC today when asked if he is a "birther."
"Well, Id like the president to produce his birth certificate," said DeLay. "I can. Most illegal aliens here in America can. Why can't the president of the United States produce his birth certificate? ... Chris, will you do me a favor? Will you ask the president to show me his gift certificate I mean, his birth certificate?"
DeLay's outspokenness on the subject stands in stark contrast to any current member of Congress.
Implying Barack Obama is being unfairly singled out for questioning on the issue, Matthews asked DeLay whether anyone has asked him for proof of his birthplace, DeLay responded, "The Democrats sued me for being a resident of Texas. That's just like asking me for my birth certificate."
"Chris, the Constitution of the United States specifically says you have to be a natural born citizen," DeLay said.
"I know," Matthews responded. "But Ive never asked you for yours."
"Ask me!" DeLay responded. "Ill give it to you!"
Matthews said seeing a birth announcement in the Honolulu newspapers was enough to convince him of Obama's birth in Hawaii.

I REALLY miss him! :( I wish he would run again!! I would like to see Sarah and Tom on a ticket together!
Well with his fancy footwork he’ll be around on DWTS for quite a while unless he’s voted off in the first round ....
Obama: “Gift certificate, yes. Birth certificate, not on your life.”
LOL I bet Chris believed there WAS no break in at Watergate didn’t he...
Good for him. I am a proud constitutionalist too aka birther. I am not like those fraud and anti-birthers like Ingraham, Boortz (tedious bore), Hewitt (bore), Medved, O”Reilly and sadly Coulter. Screw them.
You were reading my mind. I wish he’d run again, too!
One of the better Senators. I wish he would have fought the BS they threw at him and stayed.
