What Does Congressman Mike Pence Believe?
Here is the text of a message that I posted on the website of Congressman Mike Pence (R-Indiana) earlier today:
Yesterday, Congressman Pence was introduced at the Conservative Political Action Conference by Cliff Kincaid, head of Accuracy in Media. During his introduction, Mr. Kincaid suggested that President Obama is a "communist" and fed the conspiracy theory that President Obama is not a natural born citizen and thus ineligible to be President. After the introduction, Congressman Pence thanked Mr. Kincaid for the introduction. During his speech, Congressman Pence did not challenge either of Mr. Kincaid's assertions. Thus, I would like to know whether Congressman Pence believes: (a) that President Obama is actually a communist and/or (b) whether President Obama is a natural born citizen eligible to be President of the United States.
Rep. Pence is currently holds the #3 post in the Republican caucus. It will be interesting to see if (and how) he responds.
