"Rep. Roy Blunt: ‘I don’t believe’ Obama has produced a birth certificate."

Blogger-activist Mike Stark has been on Capitol Hill in recent days, asking federal lawmakers who walk by whether or not they believe President Obama was born in the United States. In a video released earlier this week, many Republican officials unfortunately conveyed to Stark that they subscribe to the conspiracy theory promoted by the “wacko wing” of their party. Today, Stark released a second video. In it, Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) reveals that he’s a “birther”:

Blunt: What I don’t know is why the President can’t produce a birth certificate. I don’t know anybody else that can’t produce one. And I think that’s a legitimate question. No health records, no birth certificate…

Stark: He’s produced a certificate of live birth, right?

Blunt: Not that I — I don’t believe so.

Stark: No, he has. Chris Matthews held it up on Hardball the other night.

Blunt: Talk to Chris Matthews.

Watch it:

But as Eric Kleefeld notes, Blunt voted for a resolution recently that stipulated Obama was born in Hawaii.
