Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean (D) suggested that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) believes President Obama was born in Kenya and isn’t a Christian on Monday’s “Up with Chris Hayes” on MSNBC.
“He [Walker] doesn’t have an inner compass, what he’s doing is catering — and I agree with Michael [Steele], this is some of both, some of it’s he’s been gotcha’d, and some of it, he’s catering to the right wing. The trouble with that is, he’s going to have the same problem that Mitt Romney did. He’s going to say some things [that will be] hard to live down. Because the average American voter doesn’t want to know, they want to know that he thinks, that he respects the presidency,, and obviously you can’t respect the presidency if you think he’s — you say he’s not a Christian, he was born in Kenya, and all of this other crazy crap, and he’s now catering to the crazy wing of the Republican party, and that’s great in the primaries, but it’s going to come back and bite him in the general election” Dean stated.
