Buzzing in the blogosphere about Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli’s campaign-season statements about the Obama birth certificate:
Listening to this, I don’t hear Cuccinelli agreeing with the birther madness. I hear a politician striving to avoid disagreement. The real news in this clip is not that Cuccinelli is a birther. As he said in a statement released yesterday: ““I absolutely believe that President Obama was born in the United States. I don’t buy into the claims that he wasn’t.”
The news is that when in campaign mode, Cuccinelli thought it risky and dangerous to state his “absolute” belief in a plain and forthright manner.
