The conference [WorldNetDaily (WND) held its annual "Taking Back America"] was no different. It featured several speakers accusing President Obama of being born in Kenya and Indonesia (and for being a "secret Muslim"). While most mainstream conservatives avoided the event, two lawmakers, Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Michele Bachmann (R-MN), were slated to appear. Nunes — who recently published a book through WND which argues for the Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) plan to privatize Social Security — hailed the WND CEO Joseph Farah for having the "courage to print the truth." Later, Nunes explained to ThinkProgress that he did not see anything particularly objectionable in the birther movement.
