In December of 2010, former Astro Luke Scott vented some questionable thoughts about President Obama. The President of the United States was a fraud, or so Luke Scott thought. He graced the 2010 Winter Meetings with his presence and interviewed with David Brown at Yahoo! Big League Stew.

[Obama] was not born here...That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go - within 10 minutes - to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.'

So take a lookie here, Mr. Scott. Now you can focus on not hitting .240 for the Orioles. Wait. what's that? Obama's middle name is "Hussein"?
