GOP rep: Sorry about that Birther stuff

I have been asked and I have answered hundreds of questions about where the president was born, and I have said what I believe — that President Obama is a natural-born American citizen.

Last Saturday, at an event in Elbert County, I made an inappropriate and boneheaded comment. I misspoke and I apologize for doing so. I have never been afraid to admit when I am wrong, and I was wrong here. …

I believe President Obama loves this country and wakes up every morning trying to do what is best for our nation, even if I disagree with his approach. To question the president’s devotion to our country based on the fact that we disagree over policy issues was wrong of me and I am sorry.
