Romney Won't Repudiate Trump On Birther Issue
AP ^ | Steve Peoples

Posted on 05/28/2012 8:01:27 PM PDT by rocco55

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.

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.

I don’t believe there will be an impeachment of Bambi for this issue but What If?

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...

Nah, Trump is too abrasive to be an ambassador.

He's make a fine ambassador to POK-e-stain or Saudi.

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.

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.

So Romney refuses to repudiate Obamas claim that he was born in Kenya, and insists Obama was born in Hawaii.

I agree.

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.

The MSM is in a tizzy trying to have Romney insist Trump shut up on BC. Seems an organized message. Andersen Cooper and Greta both are voicing their opinion. Bring up how McCain kept his people in line (paraphrase)

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.

That view has been debunked repeatedly.

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?)

Trump set Greta right back on her liberal heels tonight. He did it with diplomacy, politeness and a sharp stiletto.

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.

REALLY??? I guess even YAHOO is shilling for the Obamabastard.

Actually, it's not Yahoo. It's Associated Press. Yahoo doesn't produce news stories. It only aggregates them into a single, convenient place.

Breibart continues to work for the cause of Liberty from beyond the grave.

His find of Obama's bio/pamphlet, where he told the writers that he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia...at a time when such a statement didn't matter and is therefore much more apt to be true...will haunt him now throughout the campaign.

It's like quick silver that has gotten out of its holder and you just can't grab it and put it back in...it keeps slipping away from you.

Americans are hearing about this and they recognize the common sense answer. He admitted where he was born when putting his Bio into that Harvard publication.

Trump absolutely devored Matthews, Blitzer, and then Greta on this issue. They keep trying to say that he is bringing it up, when it is they who ask him on their shows to ask him about it...and then he tells them what he honestly believes.

' I do not personally much care for Trump...but he is sharp and he is not an idiot, and he is good at catching them in their shemes.

The more they try and make him look bad, the further the story spreads, and the more difficulty thay have in stopping it...but they just can't help themselves in their efforts to defend Obama.

WHO REALLY IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA?
