In todays' (10-23-11) VC Star Parade Magazine, there was an interview of Rick Perry.
The following passage was left out of the Star's version of the Parade interview:
Governor, do you believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States?
I have no reason to think otherwise.
That’s not a definitive, “Yes, I believe he”—
Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.
But you’ve seen his.
I don’t know. Have I?
You don’t believe what’s been released?
I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night.
That came up.
And he said?
He doesn’t think it’s real.
And you said?
I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the President of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue.
The Star version omits this completely. Parade's full online version:
By the way, there are at least three Presidential candidates far more courageous about outing the fraud Obama. Read our Presidential Election Forum to learn who!
Gov. Rick Perry will unveil an economic plan today that he hopes will revive the economy as well as his campaign, but in an interview prior to his speech, he returned to the birther issue which arose over the weekend.
“Look I haven’t seen his, I haven’t seen his grades. My grades ended up on the front page of the newspaper, so let’s you know, if we’re going to show stuff, let’s show stuff, but look that’s all a distraction, I mean I get it. I’m really not worried about the president’s birth certificate. It’s fun to poke at him a little bit and say ‘Hey, how about let’s see your grades and your birth certificate,” Perry said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood Monday night.
Over the weekend, Perry opened speculation over the birther topic when he did not give a direct answer about where he stands on the issue.
“I have no reason to think otherwise,” Perry said of President Obama’s birth place in an interview with Parade Magazine published Sunday. Perry said the topic of Obama’s birth certificate arose during a dinner last month with Donald Trump, who led the crusade to force Obama to unveil his birth certificate.
But when asked what Perry believed about it, he said: ”I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the president of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue.”
