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.

For purposes of argument, then, let's say it happens.
Certainly, Biden would become President.
As to how the Democrat party would select a new nominee:
1. You can assume the party has some rules that anticipate the absence of a candidate at the time of the convention (due to death...or impeachmnent).
2. Given that this is the Democrat party we're talking about, you can also assume that those rules will go out the window. This is the party of Torricelli, after all. They make up the rules as they go along -- dependent totally upon what they perceive to be the most advantageous to the party.
No matter how they might warp the rules, Hillary would end up with the nomination...
He's make a fine ambassador to POK-e-stain or Saudi.
its been debunked several times but lousily
Of course, but you have to consider that Trump knows he may need to be thrown under the bus, and may have COUNSELED the candidate that it may be necessary. He doesn’t care, he’s far more of a gutter fighter than Romney, and may prove very useful. A far more attractive hatchet man than Larry Flynt. In the end I think he hates PBO with a white hot burning passion and would do anything to bring him down.
“Even if Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama had been birthed in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House Obama is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”
Donald Trump does not commit himself to being a Birther ; but he brings up very important Questions
Go Donald Go!!!

Wow, is Mr. Lecturer about to be dealt a severe blow to his self-esteem?
Romney will do the typical wiffle waffling. If Trump continues to be “useful” he’ll dance around the issue.
Just like McCain, any vetting of the President is something Romney won’t take part in. A lot of good that did us in 2008.
The white Kenyan has something to hide, and since he has successfully dispatched the issue of needing 2 citizen parents to be eligible for POTUS due to the lack of courage from our representatives and judges, he still needs to establish that he was born on US soil. So it must be the fact that he can’t legitimately prove that he was born in this country aside from records written down in the HI state archives...
The media is well aware that it will do nothing but hurt Romney to take up the birther conversation. They are not crediting him with saying President Obama was born in the United States because they know it will hurt him to say otherwise. And I am not a Romney fan. But I do credit him with this.
I could not agree more. You are so right.
So Romney refuses to repudiate Obamas claim that he was born in Kenya, and insists Obama was born in Hawaii.
Zullo and Corsi sound like they have the goods on the muzzie. June should be fun, may it go viral.
To me it is more likely Obama lied on his college and job applications stating he was born in Kenya to get all the affirmative action perks that he could. Just like Warren lying about being Cherokee. That is likely why he is withholding all his information from this time period.
Trump told Greta it is an important issue and look what happened to McCain. Obama claimed he was not born here in his pamphlet.
Certainly, that is the simplest -- and least incriminating -- explanation.
At the least, there is something about Obama's past that he is covering up with a veritable warehouse of lies. And, so long as he insists on covering up his past, people are free to speculate whatever they will.
At the very least, he is a petty liar...and a fraud.
Romney cannot repudiate anything until the Mormon bigwigs concoct a revelation regarding the question. That is why Romney seems so wishy-washy on so many issues.
No end to the spin; the 'alter-truth' of the facts. AS for Romney; why not say the truth; which has to be; 'he actually does know where Obama was born'.
(And if weak enough; Mitt can add - if it makes the Repub-E's more comfortable - that he is NOT making it an issue.)
For sure; one man's weakness; is another man's strength. . .
LOL; so true; a gift from the horses mouth. . .and one that keeps on giving. (Now he is not just a composite Kenyan; he has two sons. . .perhaps a composite of his two daughters?)
Listening to him nicely slap her down was more fun than eating a hot fudge sundae. I like hot fudge sundaes but I like the Donald even better.
I'm happy he's openly supporting the GOP ticket this time around. He has many skills that will be valuable to our side.
