Mitt Romney Makes Obama Birth Certificate Joke

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a joke about his birth certificate - and took a subtle shot at his opponent in doing so - at a rally Friday.

Speaking about his roots in Michigan, where has father was governor, he told a Commerce, Mich., crowd, "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate."

"They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

It was awkward, if nothing else, for Romney to joke about "birther" conspiracies that dogged President Barack Obama since his 2008 White House run.

The President released his long form birth certificate in 2011.

The Obama campaign quickly responded, saying that with the comment, Romney was embracing the extreme elements in the conservative movement.

A spokesman for Romney said he was "only referencing that Michigan, where he is campaigning today, is the state where he himself was born and raised."

Romney's son Matt joked earlier this year about Obama's birth certificate, referring to Mitt Romney's tax returns - his own "missing" document controversy:

"I heard that someone suggest that as soon as President Obama releases his grades, and birth certificate, and a long list of things, then maybe he will."

Romney believes Obama was born in the U.S., saying in 2011 that "the man needs to be taken out of office but his citizenship isn't the reason why."

President Obama: U.S. Citizen?

Was Barack Obama his father, or was his father Frank Marshall Davis? There has been no record of a marriage known in Hawaii. I heard his paternal grandmother say she was in the room with his mother when he was born in Kenya [in an interview]. I also heard his mother was in Kenya meeting Barack's family when the "time" came and she could not get on the plane to come back to Hawaii. It was said she wanted to have him in Hawaii but couldn't because of missing the flight. Look at the photos of Barack and Frank Davis and compare them to Barack Obama [Sr.]. Who favors who? Even if Obama was born a natural born citizen, he lost that status when his stepfather adopted him. Once you loose it, you can't get it back.

@Daina- He's my Field Ni**er. He only acts right when I keep my thumb on his ass. His mother was the one that thought Obama was gonna buy her a house. He's gay and that's all he thinks about. Everything he has ever had a white man gave him. You can just imagine where his mouth has been. I have to make that bitch chew cat shit just to kill the smell of that breath. Daina- he is my bitch. I own him. I have papers. I tell him when he can piss and I tell him to dig the ticks out of his ass like a monkey. I feed him shit sandwichs for breakfast but he won't eat- he says he doesn't like bread. He will wake again tomorrow and his ass will be throbbing! I can't give this bitch away.

@ 800IsAFrustratedFaggot---You sound like a person who is a sexually frustrated faggot who's been turned down by every drag queen in a 100 mile radius! If you thought some fellow gay boy would give you an ounce of attention? You'd drop your pants in the middle of rush hour traffic in a NEW YORK MINUTE! You probably wish Matt would give you a wink and a nod, but he's way too hetro, baby. I know. {insert moans of delightful ecstasy here} So take your MINISCULE weener and run after your own kind..and good luck with that, limp-wrist :)

@ Matt: Wow! These trollies have the maturity level of a 14 yr. old! What can I say? HG needs to take the "magic eraser" and start wiping their nasty comments away. Enjoying the Republican Convention coverage this evening. Tomorrow nite will be a big nite! Can't wait to listen to the keynote speeches. It'll be a nice break from the annoying, mindless prattle the troll-asses on here dish out liberally to those they disagree with. Yes, Matt, there is life beyond this site....and it's gooooooooood!!
