From Huffington Post:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said the birther issue was worth “keeping alive” in a CNBC interview Tuesday morning. “It’s a good issue to keep alive. It’s fun to poke at him,” said Perry, according to host John Harwood. Harwood interviewed Perry about his flat tax proposal that he is unveiling Tuesday, which sets an across-the-board twenty percent rate on individuals and corporations with some deductions.

Perry also spoke evasively about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate in an interview with Parade magazine published over the weekend. When asked if he believed the president was born in the United States, he said, “I have no reason to think otherwise.” Asked why he didn’t give a definitive answer, Perry replied, “Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.”
Perry said in the CNBC interview, “I’m really not worried about the president’s birth certificate. It’s fun to poke at him a little bit and say, how ‘bout let’s see your grades and your birth certificate.” Perry’s own transcript from Texas A&M University, obtained by The Huffington Post, shows that he seldom earned anything above a C and includes a D in Shakespeare and a C in gym.
