The Ugly Mitt: By Playing Racist Birther Card, Romney Proves He Deserves The Zero He Got In Poll
Black Star News - New York's Leading Investigative Newspaper ^ | August 24, 2012 | The Editors

Posted on 08/25/2012 1:17:15 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Mitt Romney -- maybe he wasn't happy with the hatchet job by Trump and Sununu?

By playing the racist "birther" card, America's first serious Mormon Presidential candidate has concluded that his best chance of winning the White House is to rally his Republican base including the Tea Party and hope for a few bad things to also happen.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Michigan today before a crowd of a few thousand, the desperate Republican candidate said: “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place where both of us were born and raised.”

And, as The Washington Post reported later: "The crowd of roughly 1,000 responded knowingly with loud cheers, and several supporters said in interviews following the rally that they interpreted Romney’s comment as a dig at Obama. Although Obama has released his birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii, some conservative activists still question his citizenship."

Romney has probably concluded that since he gets zero support from the Black community and negligible backing from Latinos he can afford to alienate both groups so long as he can maximize turnout in his base. So he's throwing red meat to even the rabid elements.

Unless he apologizes this 2012 campaign, already on the downward slope, will enter an even filthier gutter.

Romney also probably hopes that: the economic data for the last Friday before the Presidential elections show the economy tanking with unemployment edging sharply upwards and job creation slowing to a trickle; that Israel launches an attack against Iran, roiling the global oil markets and causing pandemonium on the stock market; and, that the voting in major swing states such as Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania are so close that Republican operatives manage to steal those states by the concerted on-going voter suppression campaign across the country.

If the vote can't be stolen in the swing states, Romney's possible calculation is that any deadlock that goes to the Supreme Court would be good: having recently delivered health care reform to President Obama, this time, by the Romney calculus, the court would deliver the White House to the Republicans.

There is simply no other explanation why Romney would himself decide to take over the duties that had been delegated to John Sununu and Donald Trump; both will be very visible at the Republican convention. Giving up on Latino voters, the Republicans have also lined up notorious Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio as a convention speaker. The sheriff was the nation's birther-in-chief.

Romney may have usurped that title for himself.

Of course Romney also wants to divert attention away from the Rep. Todd Akin disaster. As the whole world now knows, this grown man, a Republican Congressman who's running for the Senate and sits on the House Science committee, contends that in cases of "legitimate" rape a woman can prevent pregnancy by "shutting that whole thing down."

Not only did the comments open the entire party to ridicule, it also exposed to many Americans that Akin's views aren't bizarre within the Republican party at all. Romney's Vice Presidential running mate Rep. Paul Ryan co-sponsored with Rep. Todd Akin a bill to ban government support of abortion in cases of "forcible rape"; that term was later removed. It never made it to the senate.

Moreover, the Republican Party's own manifesto, which is to be adopted this coming week at their Convention, calls for the ban of abortion even in cases of rape and incest. Akin's nuclear detonation has all but derailed the message of tranquility that the Republicans wanted to project to the country heading into the Convention. The Party leadership is so rattled that a Politburo type ban on any more interviews about abortion was imposed by Rush Limbaugh. The party has so far adhered to it.

Asked several times in interviews this week what he meant by "forcible rape" when he co-sponsored the House bill, Ryan simply ignored the questions and borrowed Obama's remarks: "rape is rape." Before submitting to a media interview yesterday Mitt Romney slapped conditions on a reporter: She was not to ask any questions about abortion, forcible rape, or Todd Akin.

The Limbaugh Rules failed. By trying to muzzle the media and by ignoring questions about Rep. Akin and about "forcible rest" which to many people sounds a lot like "legitimate rape" both Romney and Ryan became the subjects of even more ridicule.

So in his hour of desperation Romney decides to play the race card with his birther statement.

Romney figures he has nothing to lose anyway with The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll showing his support in the Black community a whopping zero percent to Obama's 94 percent.

Hopefully more Americans will also now see the wisdom behind why Black voters had concluded that Romney is a ZERO. How sad and ironic that the nation's first serious Mormon presidential aspirant would resort to such an ugly display.

If you'd read this and had never heard of Mr. Obama and his record, you'd think that Gov. Romney was a cross between Archie Bunker, a KKK Kleagle (like the late Rep. Harry Byrd, D-WV) and Heinrich Himmler. But we have seen what the Obama regime is up to and what they've done to our country. NO SALE!

Let’s not forget who the ORIGINAL birthers are and they are AP and Barack Obama’s publicist. It appears that when it served his purposes, BO had no problem with people saying he was born in Kenya. But now he insists that documented history does not exists. Obama is just getting some karma back on this issue.

These folks have absolutely no sense of humor. I thought Romney’s comment was a real hoot, particularly coming from him.

Heaven forbid that either of these noble statesmen be tempted to take the low road in this historic contest.

>"Although Obama has released his birth certificate"

It was "his" alright. He Frankesteined it together.

Now as for the one issued in Mombasa, it's his also, although he had very little to do with it's creation.

How is alluding to that, racist? And the Usurper himself gave his birthplace as Kenya in a profile he provided.

Yes because 2ndDivisionVet takes the time and effort to ferret out what the opposition is spreading falsehoods about.

What would you expect from “NY’s Leading Investigative Newspaper?” All-black, all the time, from the perspective of blacks, by blacks and for blacks, because everybody knows if you don’t get the black perspective, well, then, it just isn’t news.

“No Sale” - Yepper - I think i’s brilliant - the more they complain, the easier it will be to ask questions about why Obama has spent so much time/effort/money to lock away so much of his past.

As far as being called a racist, it doesn’t make any difference whether Romney had rejected or supported the birthers. You want to know why? Because if wasn’t a racist, he would be supporting Obama’s bid for a second term. The truth is, by merely opposing Obama for president, in the minds of all of Obama’s race-obsessed followers and flunkies, Romney is a racist. As are all Republicans.

And the easier it will be to make jokes about all the things Obama has hidden.

For example, "we know Obama is brilliant, you can see that in his college transcripts...well, if he would actually let you see them."

“I don’t agree with you.” is code for “I hate black people.”

That’s all you need to know.

I have always maintained that Malibue Ken and Obama are two sides of the same coin. And both parties are beholden to the same people.
