Post's Hubbard: More Arrogance from Mike Coffman

I met the guy personally and will attest to his arrogance. Curtis Hubbard reiterates the same at the Post with a minor scold to Dog-Whistling Congressman Mike Coffman:

The Aurora Republican, who has served in the Army and the Marines, marched into Elbert County Saturday (which isn't even in his new district), opened his mouth to discuss defense spending, and promptly stuck a combat boot in it:
"I don't know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don't know that. But I do know this, that in his heart, he's not an American. He's just not an American."

When a supporter posted it online, it wasn't long before the comments became news in the Denver-metro area online, political fundraising, and cable news worlds.

How many of you would advise Mike Coffman that the best way to introduce himself in a new, more competitive district is via stories on the top-rated TV station and in the state's largest newspaper in which he essentially puts on the tri-cornered hat and shows the world his "birther" card?

And then offering an apology that contains more arrogance than remorse?

The only ones that would recommend this are Peter Boyles at KHOW, Lou Pate at 850KOA, Glenn Beck at KHOW, Bill Cunningham at 850KOA, and a slew of other big-and-small-time media conservatives who repeat this crap every single day.

Thanks for the easy question, Curtis. Coffman's arrogance came through quite clearly once again. And Republicans' reliance on smear and innuendo vs. policies and solutions should tell you one other thing that is also quite clear: both sides don't do it.
