After planting his foot firmly in his mouth with his recent birther dog whistle saying that Obama has a "troubling" "perspective" because he grew up in Kenya – and then offering the dubious "explanation" that he meant to say Obama grew up in Indonesia - Mike Huckabee went on The O'Reilly Factor last night (3/2/11) for a Fox News dose of Republican Rehab. I suspect O'Reilly was chosen as Rehabilitator because he has the top show and because he's not anything like the kind of Obama basher that Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck are. So when O'Reilly validated Huckabee's underlying theory that Obama is not quite as American as the rest of us – because he "grew up" in Indonesia - not Kenya, as Huckabee originally said – maybe Fox figured its viewers would not shrug it off as just another anti-Obama diatribe. But how did that anti-British "perspective" that Huckabee blamed on Obama's childhood in Kenya, fit into the "corrected" Indonesia childhood? Conveniently, O'Reilly never asked.
