Romney Won't Repudiate Trump On Birther Issue

Did Trump recently state that Obama was "born in Kenya and raised in Idonesia" ?

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney isn't taking a position on supporter Donald Trump's return to the controversy over where President Barack Obama was born.

Romney said Monday evening that while he doesn't agree with all the people who support him, he appreciates their help to get him at least 50.1 percent of the vote in November.

Romney's comments come about 24 hours before appearing at fundraiser in Las Vegas that Trump is hosting.

Earlier this week Trump again stated that Obama was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. That view has been debunked repeatedly. Obama released his long-form birth certificate in April 2011 showing he was born in Hawaii while Trump weighed entering the Republican primary race.

What could be bigger than this 1991 pamphlet being exposed??

If we had a free press, the 1991 pamphlet would have been the death nail to this story. The Senate would have started impeachment proceedings immediately.


Bingo.

If George bush, or even Romney, had such a pamphlet turn up, its news would be front page top story news for months.

The true story is that the media is absolutely completely biased, and WE WANT TO KNOW WHY.

Whatever happened... it appears that Romney did not act as cowardly and sleazy as his idol Mcinsane acted when Bill Cunningham introduced the Messiah by his full name during the 2008 election campaign.

McWimp condemned talkshow host, Bill Cunningham, and sorely dampened what little enthusiasm people had for his campaign.

If Mittens is smart, he will say NOTHING about the issue, but continue to encourage Trump and Sheriff Joe behind the scenes. It’s all good. He should also encourage discussion of Obama’s non-conversion to Christianity, according to the recent Rev. Wright blockbuster.

In that “conversion” was there a non=baptism too? Do baptism records as contain birth information?

Exactly.

What other person in recent history has written an autobiography BEFORE becoming a major figure?

No, you blithering idiots in the press. Obama did, as recently as 2007 in his biography about his book.

Trump was on CNBC this morning citing Obama’s publisher’s statement that Obama said he “was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia.” This was priceless since it was on a cable channel with a high viewership.

Thanks rocco55.
That view has been debunked repeatedly. Obama released his long-form birth certificate in April 2011 showing he was born in Hawaii...
And of course, he did no such thing. Partisan Media Shill alert -- AP, no author listed of course.

Don’t waste your time and energy because people even on this site fail to grasp what you’re saying.

Americans are dumbing down on the issue of Natural Born Citzenship, so it’s best to drop it.

Maybe he was born in Hawaii maybe he wasn’t. His father was not an American. So what?

The real issue here is that Obama is a man of many colors. He’s Kenyan born when it’s to his advantage to be so, and American born at other times.

let’s see his Harvard records and other school application forms.

I mean forget the birth issue and let’s look at what the man has done as an adult. Which in my opinion has been fraudulent.

If I wasn’t watching this total cover-up by the news media myself, I would not believe it. We have no news media anymore. Its the Obama show. I am going to write FOX and tell them what kind of slime they are.

Scary isn't it. The eligibility question has been COMPLETELY validated by Obama's official 1991 biography and our political elites and their media lackeys need to be reminded of this fact every day. At some point the stonewall is going to have to break and they're in danger of going down too.

Obama has evidently instructed them to demand that Romney should throw Trump under the bus and not allow him to campaign for him.

The slimy Dems love to drive wedges...To split up Republicans and try to get Republicans to denounce each other. If Romney has any brains he won't fall for this. He should start calling out reporters (his inquisitors) and accuse them of getting marching orders from the DNC

That's great! I can't wait to see the video.

On MSNBC morning “The Rundown” they were hand-wringing again over the "failure" of Willard to denounce and shun Trump...

The WH and MSM campaign to get Willard to denounce Trump has been going on for almost a week but Willard is blowing of the pressure and partying on with Trump giving “birther” Trump the highest possible visibility by sharing the stage with him on the night he clinches the nomination with the texas primary.

It looks like that is his plan. This is one area that Romney is not like McCain. I think he can and will be very ruthless.

So,the Obama campaign is trying to make it sound like it’s really bad to associate with a so-called “birther” yet it’s okay to associate with folks like Rev. Wright or Bill Ayers and Ray the drug dealer.
