“What do you think about Obama’s birth certificate being called a forgery?” asked a man who identified himself as an Army veteran.
“You know I have a lot of doubts about all that,” she said. “I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away.”
When asked to clarify her doubts during press availability after the event, Hartzler said: “I have doubts that it is really his real birth certificate, and I think a lot of Americans do, but they claim it is, so we are just going to go with that.”
Hartzler declined to say whether she believes Obama is a U.S. citizen, calling the issue “irrelevant” and said people should “focus attention on his specific policies and not his birth certificate.”
“I have plenty of disagreements with his policies,” she said.
