In an interview with conservative blogger Ed Morrissey on Friday, Nevada Senate nominee Sharron Angle (R) said she believes President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Here's what Morrissey wrote on hotair.com this afternoon:
I asked her “flat out” whether she believed Barack Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii, and she replied, “No. Is that flat-out enough for you?”
Angle says she “wasn’t dodging” the caller on the radio show now being parsed by the media, in which she replied that the Supreme Court had already ruled on that issue, but instead wanted to talk about Obama’s political qualifications and wanted to politely redirect the conversation.
On a radio show Thursday, Angle didn't directly answer a question from a caller who asked whether she believes the president was born in the U.S.
Instead, Angle said in response, "You know, I think our Supreme Court has pretty much made that decision."
