Scott Brown Calls Scott Brown TV Persona a Liar! Is All The Libural Medias Fault

Brown Campaign Now Says “He Doesn’t Believe” Obama Born Out Of Wedlock; But No Apology

As you may have heard, an incendiary video is making the rounds in which Scott Brown questioned whether Obama’s parents were married when he was born — and Dems are pounding him over it.

But a Brown campaign spokesman has now clarified his stance in an email to me, saying Brown “doesn’t believe” it’s possible Obama was born out of wedlock — though he isn’t apologizing for the remark and even appeared to blame it on Martha Coakley.

In the 2008 video, which is below, Brown defended Sarah Palin’s family follies, and then seemed to chuckle as he questioned whether Obama’s mother was married when he was born:

BROWN: Barack’s mom had him when she was, what, 18 years old?

GUEST: And married!

BROWN: Well, I don’t know about that.

The record shows, of course, that Obama’s parents were married when he was born. Asked directly whether Brown believes it’s possible Obama was born out of wedlock, Brown spokesman Eric Fehrnstom emailed:

He doesn’t believe that. This is more desperate campaigning from Martha Coakley. When she isn’t calling for higher taxes, she’s making things up about Scott Brown.

This walk-back comes after the Brown campaign initially refused to directly address or clarify his previous remarks — and after Dems pummeled Brown over them today.


Update: DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan pounces:

“Why did he say it then? Whether it’s on this issue, or choice or taxes, Scott Brown has a disturbing and telling history of saying one thing at one time, and another thing later on. The only thing that’s clear is that Scott Brown is not who he says he is.”
