Skip to comments.Romney to Trump: Obama Doesn’t Need a Birth Certificate
Posted on 04/12/2011 8:22:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
According to Romney family lawyers it doesn't matter if Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, Kenya, or even Paris: Because his mother was an American (and not even Donald Trump questions that), he is eligible to be President.
The Romney lawyers investigated this question in the 1960s, when Mitt Romney's father, Governor George Romney of Michigan, was vying for the Republican presidential nomination. George Romney had been born in a Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico, as his grandfather moved there with his wives in the 1880s after polygamy was outlawed in the U.S.
While some opponents nicknamed him "Chihuahua George," his suitability for the highest office because of his birth was never seriously challenged. The reason his campaign faltered was because of his shift in position on the Vietnam War:

I wish they would both get lost
Doc1019 to Romney ... why not?
So we have ‘Rom’ (RINO OF MASS) defending the illegal alien.
“George Romney had been born in a Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico,”
Mitten’s FATHER wasn’t born in the United States?
Has he got “eligibility” problems in common with Little Stevie Dunham?!?
We don’t give a rat’s ass if it doesn’t matter to you, Myth.
Pound sand, RINO/Marxist apologist
These guys both strike me as snake oil salesmen.
Utter bullshit! Just like Mith Romney. (Forget NittWitt Romney)
Mitt how many ways can we say Hell no?
If Mitten’s father isn’t a natural born American; how can Mittens?
Not enough. How stupid is he? Sure wouldn’t want his headache in the morning.
Did those lawyers march with the Romneys and MLK in the civil rights marches? [snort!]
I’ll count the ways, how about 310 million Americans saying HELL NO!!!
Trump should file a Declaratory Judgment suit asking if he (Trump) is eligible to run.
I'd like to see their hair duke it out in a one-on-one fight to the finish. Badger vs. Squirrel, steel cage girlie slap match.
Let’s see. A heretic leaves the country to avoid US polygamy laws and now the descendants have no issues with the mystery man. Sounds like a scratch my back I’ll scratch yours deal...
If what you posted is true.
Hopefully, the people on here go after Mi(L)t as well.
Obama and Romney: two birds, one stone.
Overwhelming stupidity and ignorance.
LOL! Romney is our greatest weapon against Romney.
Mitt’s father (or any candidate’s) parents don’t have to be natural born citizens; they DO have to be American citizens. Their being American citizens confers on their children the ‘natural born’ status.
If George Romney ran for POTUS he was, at a minimum, a U.S. citizen, whether or not ‘natural born.’ My memory of the time is that George Romney never had much more chance of becoming the GOP nominee than Mitt has today. So the NBC issue was never a major deal. Brackets, on the other hand, managed to get himself elected, so it is, or should be, a major deal.
But if Mitt wants to spend another $20M or so of his money, what do I care?
So, I guess all of Mitt’s grandmothers swear he was born in the U.S.
And nobama doesn’t need a BC because Mitt’s establishment guys told him so.
This is so frustrating, the Repub establishment just won’t let go - and when they get in it makes all conservatives look bad.
Personally, I’m not donating any more $$ to the RNC, just to specific candidates. I liked DeMint’s PAC.
The people to Romney: “We don’t need another RINO”! LOL
Which brings up the matter that it is REALLY unsettling, that leaders who can rise to the top of the PILE, can be so ignorant and shrug their shoulders concerning THE LAW...
He should not worry about Trump. the enemy is obummer.
“Coiffo a Coiffo”
My bet is that Romney is a front man for the GOP establishment to eventually trot out Jeb Bush. Something tells me Rove will soon start mentioning Jeb. I sure hope people do not fall for it.
What law school did these lawyers go to ? If he was born out of the country , under the law at the time, his mother did not live in the US for 5 years after the age of 14 before he was born. Thus she could not pass on US citizenship to him. Do they even research the law before making these asinine comments ?
(you will lose anyway)
The birth certificate is easily destroyed, modified, you will never get an definitive answer going after paper.
But here is an easy way to verify his story. It involves ... well I’d rather not say.
Where can one find Trump’s investigative team?
I see Romney dropped like a rock in the CNN poll. Trump took lead. I say let fight to the last man standing.
Wow! The first photo I’ve ever seen where his hair looks upset.
He had a really icky grandfather apparently and he has always - for some weird reason - made my skin crawl.
Join the fun at Trumps Facebook site:
Because Daddy Romney never became an American...
George was never naturalized
That means Mittys Dad was just like Barrys Dad...
No argument from me.
That’s lovely, but why are we kissing Donalds Trump?
Where is Trumps legacy of conservatism?
The Donald would sell his Mother for leverage.
Shut Up evil obama twin separated at hatching [somewhere]....!
DeMint is FOR Romney!
Thanks to the likes of Romney and McCain we have Obama today.
Video: A Question of Eligibility (Full Movie!) Very informative!
PETITION FOR PUBLIC RELEASE OF
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE
I’m not sure Romney knows who his own mother was since there were so many women spittin’ out babies down in Mexico.
And I would like to know if all those lawyers from 1960 are still alive.
Oh am I an idiot.
We have the winning answer. Thus Mitt's defense of Obama's eligibility.
... because Quincy was a citizen of the U.S. at the time the Constitution was adopted.
Trump is requesting any information regarding Obama and others to be sent to:
Mr. Michael D. Cohen, Executive Vice President and Special Counsel
The Trump Organization
725 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10022
FLASHBACK: There were congressional hearings were held to determine whether Sen. John McCain was constitutionally eligible to be president as a “natural born citizen,”
Someone needs to send Trump info on Romney. And by the way, I remember Romney’s daddy running. But I don’t remember anything about his elegibility being challenged.
If the GOP nominates another rino they’re guaranteed to lose.
Sounds like ol’ Mitt is acting like a member of the Washington Elite before he even gets there ...
It is possible he is right. Doesn’t matter. It hasn’t been clarified by congress or the supreme court. Therefore what romney’s lawyers say doesn’t mean squat. What any responsible candidate should be saying is that the very fact there is a question on obama’s legitimacy is an outrage. There should be zero question about it as it should have already been settled. The fact we have stricter criteria for children playing baseball than people becoming president is absurd. Its not about obama. It is about making sure the constitution is followed. And many just don’t even care to get a definitive ruling which irks the heck out of me. As far as obama is concerned - I don’t care - whatever it is it is. I just want the constitution followed.
