Campaigning in Michigan, Jeb Bush soundly repudiates birtherism, reports mlive.com, the web site of the MLive Media Group that operates a string of Michigan newspapers, in their article, “Jeb Bush goes full non-birther in Michigan while Donald Trump faces backlash.”
Barack Obama is a talented man — and by the way, he’s American, he’s Christian.
Bush was speaking at the the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.
Obama’s birthplace turned out not to be a critical issue in the 2008 and 2012 campaigns, where President Obama won despite birther opposition.

Jeb Bush is polling in third place in Michigan, behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
