Newt Gingrich dismisses birther leader Orly Taitz

One of the most outspoken members of the birther movement, Orly Taitz — who believes that Obama is ineligible to serve as president because he isn’t actually a U.S. citizen (despite the president releasing his long-form Hawaii birth certificate) — tried to garner the support of GOP candidate Newt Gingrich at a campaign event in Pasadena, California. Taitz suggested that the birther movement could help “boost” his support, adding “Somebody who wouldn’t be good enough, who wouldn’t be certified to pick tomatoes or clean bathrooms is sitting in the White House.” The Huffington Post reports on this story:

Orly Taitz took her anti-Obama birther crusade to GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Monday, only to come up empty-handed. Again.

At a campaign event in Pasadena, Calif., Gingrich took questions after delivering a stump speech blasting, among other things, “President Obama’s war on the Catholic Church” and the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which recently overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban.

After answering concerns about the state of his campaign following a slide in recent polls and primary contests, Taitz came forward, suggesting that the birther issue could provide a “boost” to his candidacy if he made it a hallmark issue.
