Former Congressman Tim Walberg is running to get his Michigan seat back from Democratic Congressman Mark Schauer. However, Walberg is having difficulty determining whether President Obama was born in America or if he’s a Muslim. He couldn’t say for sure when asked on a call-in radio show.

“My question is, do you believe this president was born in America, because I have not seen enough evidence to see he is an American citizen and do you believe that he is a Muslim?” the caller asked.

“You know, I don’t know. I really don’t know. We don’t have enough information about this president. He was never given a job interview that was complete,” Walberg answered. “But that’s not the issue now. He is president. Right now we need to make sure that he doesn’t remain as president, whether he’s an American, a Muslim, a Christian, you name it.”

Walberg then tried damage control on Friday:

“I take President Obama at his word that he is a Christian and was born here in America,” Walberg said. “Now, it’s time that we focus on the real issues facing this country.”

Sadly, Walbert is not alone in his ignorance.

Fellow Michigan GOP challenger Andrew “Rocky” Raczkowski asked to see Obama’s birth certificate before later walking back his remarks, and Ohio businessman Tom Ganley, running against Democratic Rep. Betty Sutton in the state’s 13th District, initially refused to say whether he believed Obama was a Muslim.
