Liz Cheney Questions Obama's Origins

The "birther" movement got a boost Tuesday evening, as Liz Cheney, the former vice president's daughter, appeared sympathetic to the conspiracy theory that President Obama is foreign-born. Appearing on Larry King Live, the host pressed Cheney on the issue, asking her if she believed Obama was born in Kenya. Cheney said no, but added, "I'm saying that people are fundamentally uncomfortable and fundamentally I think increasingly uncomfortable with an American president who seems to be afraid to defend America, stand up for what we believe in." James Carville, who was also on the show, seemed baffled before saying, "These poor pathetic people are believing stuff just like Ms. Cheney tonight. She refuses to say this is lewd, ludicrous because she wants these people to believe this."
