Rep. John Campbell joins Hardball’s Chris Matthews to talk about the so-called “Birther Movement,” a group of mostly Republicans who believe that President Barack Obama was born outside the U.S. and therefore is not a U.S. citizen.

Matthews pushed Campbell to admit that Obama is a U.S. citizen and he was born in the U.S. “as far as I know.”
