Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) has got enough time on his hands to demand a Congressional resolution denouncing President Obama’s comments on the arrest of Prof. Gates (which ultimately will bring Sgt. Crowley and Prof. Gates together for a meeting at the White House), but he’s way too busy to say whether or not he believes President Obama was actually born in the United States:
Instead of answering the question about Obama’s birth, McCotter claimed he was working on health care reform — which he opposes. But he wasn’t too busy to conduct an interview today with Detroit-area radio station WJR (via Think Progress) in which he accused Pres. Obama of an “abuse of power” in the Prof. Gates house arrest.
