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."

It was a joke, Romney was born in Michigan. I thought liberals had a sense of humor, they put a clown, in the White House. Hopefully, after the next election, the D.C. circus, will leave town. Romney/Ryan in 2012.

I see you haven't been taking your medication. Your as fu*ked up as the rest of your Klan. Let me tell you a little something BOY! I am vocal here and when I'm not here. Do you think you can participate in a beat down- BITCH? I already own you and you know it. I don't give a shit about your kind. And your kind knows it when they see me. Your kind has no bargaining power and I let them know that. You have nothing I would want. You are a chump. Nothing to you but talk. Just like the rest of your people- no what I mean BOY? You sound like a sick sack of shit talking underage boys. I'm guessing your daddy was never around? Just like your kind- cant take care of your own. What a screwed up breed you are.

Yeah- I recognize a coward! Can't even leave a user. Drive by! Didn't get a response with the pinkster so you must sling it this way. Got to get one in before bed? Romney is going to put you to work. You still won't amount to shit but you and your uneducated ass will be employed. It must be hell being you- hopeless, no chance of gaining character- living off the government- you & Tyrone. What a mess you are in. There's always tomorrow - clean sheet of paper- you can start over- seriously because I'm guessing your trash will be wiped clean.

I saw that same interview- guy from Alabama. He spoke well and he was right. That is not an Administration Daina- that's a cult! Those are some off beat people in DC. Obama vs. Romney- its no contest. Dignity vs. Radical! Obama 2016 - made 6.2 million this weekend and it's not showing in many theatres.

@Matt Whew! Back. Done hoofed it! Peaceful evening out there. A black congressman made a good point tonight. He said since Barack Obama came to the fore, folks don't even recognized the Democrat Party of Bill Clinton...or even Jimmy Carter. That's how far left Obama is! This man was the co-chair of Obama's '08 Campaign. He's now going to vote for Romney. Go figure!

@ Daina-Marxism is Obamas Pedigree! Socialism will be Obamas Legacy! Obama has said himself- since college he has has surrounded himself with radicals, socialist,communist & anti- government individuals. Even today Liberals fight among themselves because the transfer of American currency ( wealth) has not happened fast enough! Liberals & the Obama Administration are Americas version of the Taliban & AL- Queda. One extremist radical group inside the other! Good thing the convention is not in Chicago- Weather vs. Bullets? I would take weather! One radical leftist already armed and arrested at the convention site in Tampa!
