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?
