Did Perry Really Flirt With Birtherism?
Update: Shut Up, He Explained

It should be noted in both occasions where birtherism came up, it was of course the media bringing it up.

Further, Perry's fuller quote seems to show he's not very serious.

Although, as he says: Show us your transcripts.

RICK PERRY: Well, look, I havenítĖ I havenít seen hisĖ I havenít seen his grades. My grades ended up on the front page of the newspaper. So, letísĖ you know, if weíre going to show stuff, letís show stuff. So. But, look, thatís all a distraction. I mean, I get it. IímĖ Iím really not worried about the Presidentís birth certificate. Itís fun toĖ to poke and add him a little bit and say hey, how aboutĖ letís see your grades and your birth certificate.

Bryan Preston notes that Perry followed up with an answer the MBM didn't like, so they didn't report it.


RICK PERRY: But hereís whatís really serious. Is we got people sitting around watching this interview while the president has killed 2 and a half million jobs. Thatís serious. And thatís what we got to better get right.

So Perry himself indicated that the birth certificate question was not, in fact, "really serious." In fact, he had said so the previous day as well.

The MBM tries yet again to get him to talk about it, and this time Perry wisely shuts him up.

Thanks to John E.
