Texas Gov. Rick Perry said the birther issue was worth “keeping alive” in a CNBC interview Tuesday morning. “It’s a good issue to keep alive. It’s fun to poke at him,” said Perry, according to host John Harwood.

Perry also spoke evasively about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate in an interview with Parademagazine published over the weekend.
