Republican Congressman On Obama's Citizenship: "No Comment"

Chris Matthews invited Republican congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL) to offer his opinion on Syria for some reason. But it wasn't his commentary on Syria that was noteworthy:

For those of you that can't watch the clip, here's the gist of it:

-Yoho doesn't support the idea of intervention in Syria, and his rationale is so anti-conservative (he says we should attempt "diplomacy" and even getting approval from the U.N!!!) that it leads Matthews to ask Yoho if he questions Obama's legitimacy as commander-in-chief.
-Yoho claims he doesn't question Obama's legitimacy, and even attempts to brag about how he ignored the birther crap spewed by his constituents during his town halls, even though he said he would support the idea of birther legislation, during those very same town halls.
-This in turn, Matthews to ask the follow up question: "So you accept the fact that he was born American?"
-To which, Yoho responded with a stupid chuckle, followed by saying "No comment."
-This, of course, led Matthews to believe that Yoho didn't think Obama was legitimate after all, to which, Yoho responded that that wasn't what he meant, only to confirm mere seconds later that yes, that was in fact, what he meant.
-Yoho then finishes off the segment in astounding fashion by refusing to confirm whether he was in fact, a birther himself.


Your Republican congress, ladies and gentlemen.


Oh, and for those of you unfamiliar with the congressman, he's the same nimrod who claimed that Obamacare's tanning tax was racist against White people.
