Playing into birther narrative, Republican McCarthy rips Republican Hudak

GOP candidate Rob McCarthy rips fellow GOP candidate Bill Hudak for refusing to debate. In doing so, McCarthy is latching onto the spurious charge made by Dan Kennedy and others that Hudak is a “birther.” It’s understandable that Dan Kennedy and his former employers at the Feenix can’t come up with anything to say positively about the utter failure that is Congressman John Tierney. More puzzling is why a GOP candidate would level the same charge.

“He won’t debate me,” McCarthy said. “I thought it was kind of ironic that he was standing in the center of Peabody Square on his SUV taunting John Tierney to come out of his office … and he won’t debate me.”

Hudak said he would have obliged McCarthy, but he was never asked to debate. McCarthy said he posted his debate challenge on Facebook and Twitter.

Despite continually rejecting their views, Hudak has been linked to “birthers,” who insist that the president was not born in the United States.

“I’m not a birther. I can tell you 100 percent, I’m not,” McCarthy said. “I may disagree with the policies of the president. I do disagree with some of the policies of John Tierney, but that doesn’t mean I don’t respect both those offices.”

Apparently it’s not only Democrats worried about the hard work Bill Hudak’s put in the campaign.
