Mitt Hits: No One's Ever Asked to See My Birth Certificate
The Excellence in Broadcasting Network ^ | August 24, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 08/24/2012 10:00:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Mitt Romney and Ryan are drawing a huge crowd in Michigan. And get this...

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

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

RUSH: Right on! Right on! Right on!

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Romney and Ryan were in Michigan before a big, big crowd. And here is Romney, I'm convinced, test-driving something. I think this line is a test-drive.

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

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

RUSH: Right on! Right on! Right on!

RUSH: Okay, now, as you can imagine the media is in a tizzy. The media is in a tizzy. There's a tweet here from Jan Crawford at CBS: "At Romney event, two reactions to his birth certificate joke: reporters gasped -- and a crowd of thousands laughed and cheered." There's another tweet, this from a guy named Philip Rucker who offers the context. "Romney spoke of his birth certificate just minutes after Ryan reminded the crowd of Obama's '08 'cling to guns and religion' quote."

So Ryan's out there talking about Obama and his bitter-clinger quote. Then Romney gets up to the microphone, it's his turn to speak, and he test-drives that line about nobody's ever had to ask to see his birth certificate. I'm gonna tell you what. You know, I'm gonna make a prediction for you. It's gonna be fascinating to watch. The Obama bashing at the Republican convention is gonna be delicious. It's gonna be five-star restaurant type stuff. I mean, you are gonna loooove it.

You are going to eat it up, all the Obama bashing. And I'll bet you what's happening now is the networks are trying to figure out how they can avoid airing any of it, but it's gonna be tough. Because, you know, Christie is gonna be out there. He'll be loaded for bear. They're gonna go ahead and nominate Romney on Monday, by the way, instead of Wednesday just to get it done because of the hurricane. Here's one more Romney bite from this afternoon, Commerce Township, Michigan.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

ROMNEY: We can compete with anyone in the world. We will compete and we will win. And, by the way, if we do those five things, we'll create 12 million jobs --

CROWD: Yeah!

ROMNEY: -- and finally see a rise in take-home pay!

CROWD: Yeah!

ROMNEY: And so from our standpoint, we don't want four years of what we just had; we just want four years of what I've just described: a brighter, more prosperous America, with a strong and prosperous future.

CROWD: Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!

RUSH: I'll tell you, if Romney and Ryan win, we're not gonna need to wait for calendar 2013 to see movement. You wait. If Romney and Ryan win, you're going to see immediate economic results. You're going to see immediate changes, positive changes. You wait. There are a lot of businesses that do have some money. They're sitting on it. They don't feel comfortable expanding. The more they make, the more that's gonna be taken from them. And then taxes are going up.

There's a lot of inactivity out there in the American private sector, based simply on outrage and fear of what's in store if Obama wins another four years. But, you know, this Obama bashing that's gonna take place at the convention? Let me put something in perspective for you. A lot of people, viewers, are going to hear it for the first time. They haven't heard Obama bashing before. The late-night comedians don't tell Obama jokes. They're still out there saying there's nothing funny about the guy.

And, in a way, that's true. Narcissists are not particularly funny people, but they're covering for him. "Ah, there's nothing really here. Nothing to see here. No big joke here. Here's a very serious guy. He's the first black president! How in the world do we make jokes about that?" So there hasn't been a whole lot of Obama criticism that the audience of the mainstream media has been exposed to. At least not on their televisions, folks. Not on their TVs.

I think people are gonna love it.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Okay. So guess what? The regime is very, very, very upset. Grab audio sound bite number 24. This is Romney in Michigan today, and a little birth certificate joke. Listen to this...

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised --

RUSH: Yeah!

ROMNEY: -- where both of us were born.

RUSH: Yeah!

ROMNEY: No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

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

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

RUSH: Right on. Right on. So guess what now? The press secretary for Obama 2012, Jen Psaki. It's P-s-a-k-i, so just guessing that she pronounces it "Peh-sah-key." See, I'm at a disadvantage. I never hear these names pronounced and I don't want to purposely mispronounce names, so I have to run through all the possibilities. At any rate, she's out there saying that what you just heard Romney say, that birth certificate joke, is "gutter ball politics." Now, this is one of the women, this Jen Psaki babe, who said that Romney might be a felon.

She said it along with Stephanie Cutter and Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz. And Psaki also lied when she said she didn't know Soptic. (Soptic is the guy in the ad who claimed that Romney killed his wife.) So here you have a woman who claimed that Romney might be a felon 'cause of what happened at Bain, and that Romney killed a guy's wife. So Romney's out there telling a joke about the birth certificate and THAT is "gutter ball politics"!

Hey, Psaki? A little observation.

I thought this birth certificate thing was a win-win for you guys.

Because only kooks and idiots and extremists believe that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery, right? So if that's the case, Jen, wouldn't you want people making jokes about that? Wouldn't you want people joking about it, because wouldn't it be hurting them? Isn't that the kind of thing that you claim the independents don't like hearing? "They don't want to hear about Obama's birth certificate. They love Obama! The independents, they like Obama. They like his 'blackness.' They like the fact that he was born in Hawaii. They don't like people making jokes about it."

So what's the deal?

Why are they so sensitive about this?

And there is one real possibility: that Obama is such a narcissist that you don't dare criticize him. I don't care who you are and I don't care what it's about, you don't dare criticize Barack Obama! You criticize the first black president and it's racist, and it is "gutter ball."

Things are getting real interesting, real fast. I'm glad to see that Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan are taking a page from Gov. Sarah Palin's playbook.

We need more jokes! Zer0 can’t tell a joke and can’t take a joke. He is a joke.

" RUSH: I'll tell you, if Romney and Ryan win, we're not gonna need to wait for calendar 2013 to see movement. You wait. If Romney and Ryan win, you're going to see immediate economic results "

Right on, right on, right on, roger that.

The employers are holding out and the wait and see mode.

Ohh yes America will come back and on top of all of this ? money of pouring out, and millionaires are leaving China waiting for a place to invest their money.
All that money is going to go to the RIGHT TO WORK states.
And on top of all this ? remove unneeded government regulations, ban on drilling, so on and so on, and watch America come back as never as before.
The liberals can move to Cuba for all I care.

The good news is that Obama has finally begun drilling for oil. The bad news is that he’s only drilling in our strategic oil reserve.

Barack O’Bama is now claiming that Ireland is his ancestral home. He is claiming that it is all a matter of the spelling: O’bama is the same as Obama.

Michelle Obama received a copy of Osama Bin Laden’s cookbook. She had the White House chief cook up Osama’s Afghan Cave Soup: 4 bat wings, cave fungus and a stock of camel piss. Barack said it was better than dog soup. It was not as stringy.

I heard news reports that politicians are leaving China with money that they stole from the communist and setting up shop else where.
Also ? millionaires are leaving China by the boat load to get out of dodge... wonder if they smell something coming down the pike that we should know of ? that they see the writing on the wall in China and that it's ready to all fold up like a cheap accordion ?
Not counting all the employers here sitting and waiting to see how this all plays out.
Next year ? a prediction ? Gasoline will be under $ 2.00.

We have sooooo much oil, natural gas, coal, shale oil, oil sands and other fuels that it isn’t even funny. We invented nuclear power. Why in the world would we build wind turbines and burn corn?

The late-night comedians don't tell Obama jokes.

Rush is wrong on this one. The last few weeks I have noticed some real biting jokes out of Leno, kimmel and Falon about Obama, Jokes that elude to Obama not winning the election.

Because DBA OBAMA is an Islamo-Commie crack-smoking closet queen who hates America, Capitalism, Christianity and freedom.

You are so awesome!

Thank you for your graphics.

OK people, I'm hearing that Sheriff Arapio is speaking at the Convention.

How is it that he will speak and NOT mention his investigation on the BC? Trump will also speak. I'm sure he will speak about China, but what about the BC? Trump told Greta he has a huge surprise for the Convention.

I'm just sayin, it looks like we could have someone mention the BC, SS#, draft reg, college registration and who paid, or something?

Would Arapio ever let his speech be vetted by the wormy establishment? That would bring him down in my eyes a bunch.

It seems odd to see a Republican campaigning like he actually wants the job, especially after the way McCain acted in 2008.

Just hope Romney doesn’t “suspend” his campaign when Oh-Bah-Mah’s planned October surprise hits the fan.

Yeah...and his use of the phrase Oiho is just another subliminal slip on his part...

It's his term of endearment for the first spouse ...as in

Oi Ho

If Romney and Ryan win, you're going to see immediate economic results.

I second that notion. And conversely, if the Obamanation and Bitme win, watch the stock market take a dive for starters.

Hey Rush, Coulter, Beck, and all the other conservative icons, it’s ok to come out from behind Romney’s skirt and become a birther now that Romney himself is taking it to the Kenyan.

I don’t include Hannity in that crowd. It’s hard for me to take much of Hannity, but he has been a lot bolder on this issue.
