DENVER Colorado Congressman Mike Coffman is apologizing for comments he made at a fundraiser last weekend when he asserted that President Barack Obama is just not an American.
But the damage has been done.
Coffman, thought to be a safe bet to hold onto his seat this November, has given his underdog opponent, state Rep. Joe Miklosi, an opening by questioning President Barack Obamas American-ness during a campaign speech last weekend.
I dont know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I dont know that, Coffman said at the event Saturday in Elbert County. But I do know this, that in his heart, hes not an American. Hes just not an American.
Miklosi, D-Denver, has been on the attack since the comments, posted on YouTube by a Coffman supporter, first surfaced Wednesday night; and hes spending much of Thursday making the rounds doing interviews and even scheduled to appear on national television Thursday night.

“You already said it, why not stand by it? Stupid”
Because he is being buried in a blizzard of “Are you NUTZ! Are you CWAZY? When did you go INSANE?” crap from the mostly-gay mainstream media.
If I were Coffman, I’d ask:
“I you wanted to destroy America, which of Obama’s policies would you repeal?”
These GOP coward assholes! No wonder this party is FUed! Say what you mean and NEVER back down! Ever!
All I hear is Sorry Sorry Sorry. Crap shut up and stand by it.
These idiots don’t realize that if they would just stand by what they say, they would get the support from their base. The people they pi**ed off, by saying it in the first place, would not have voted or support them anyway. By backing down, they have made fools of themselves and lost the respect of the people who would have supported and voted for them.
I don’t care where he was born, but I know he is not one of us.
It takes a real idiotic elected politician to start babbling about birther conspiracies. You’d think they’d all know better than to make fools of themselves by touching this silly crap.
Another milquetoast Republican.
What’s he apologizing for? He said the same thing Hilary did in 2008
To think that Barry is a ‘real’ American in ANY sense of the word is nut. Too bad C lacks the gonads to fight the issue on that basis.
Apoligizing for the truth?=NOT a good idea.
Why? Is that what all the focus groups show? Especially when more evidence is surfacing, why is it silly?
Sadly, Obama is one of us. He is a left wing American. They dislike their own country, its history, its people, its institutions. It’s not a big factor that he’s a black American. White leftists hate America in all the same ways.
In fact, if he were not a leftist, Obama might have gained a LOVE of America from his foreign dads. Many foreigners understand the greatness of this country better than an American liberal.
That's because the demos/Obama own the media!
And your proof that Obama was born anywhere in America consists of exactly what?
Bam’s citizenship still remains in question? But certainly in his heart he is not!
