    Good question by conservative George Will. My answer to the question of why Willard would appear with “bloviating ignoramus” is simple: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Also, a significant chunk of the Teapublican base is comprised of…well, let’s just say people who fit George Will’s description of Donald Trump to a T. Seriously, that’s how low today’s Republican Party has sunk, where its presidential nominee actually sees a benefit of some sort to appearing with a deranged “birther.” Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, et al must be tossing around in their graves watching this sideshow.

      being with Trump hurts Romney.  It rallies his base, and he can keep saying quietly, as he has been, that he believes the President was born in Hawaii.  I think there are a lot more Repubs who have taken to heart the “factoid” that President Obama was born in Kenya. I was dumbfounded when I realized that a couple of my Republican friends believe it. They aren’t ignorant people.  They have good educations and good jobs, are knowledgeable about issues, and openly support green energy research and development.  I’ve made progress on economic issues, and the fact that gas prices aren’t the president’s fault, but cannot move them one iota on their belief that he was born in Kenya.  It’s scary, because if these folks can be convinced that he was not born in Hawaii, there are lots of others out there who won’t admit it publicly.
