Skip to comments.Horror of horrors: Romney makes a birth-certificate joke
Posted on 08/24/2012 12:34:00 PM PDT by RobinMasters
And it was pretty darn funny, too.
Now I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital, I was born in Harper Hospital. No ones ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place where both of us were born and raised.
Now, everybody just hold on for a second. The Twitterverse and etcetera have been lighting up with speculations and accusations from all sides as to what Mitt Romney meant with this. No, birthers: I have the severest doubts that Mitt Romney was endorsing birtherism, nor that he plans to desperately take up the theory as part of his campaign platform as we wend our way to November. Its far too divisive an issue, and as much as the Left would no doubt like everyone to believe, its not like the majority of the conservative base is exactly jiggy with it.

Has Wolf Blitzer ask him to withdraw yet?
I thought it was a great comment. You can always judge how effective a comment or a political decision is by the reaction of the leftist media. The best reaction from the left so far was the Paul Ryan VP choice.
We’ll need to revisit this article after Trump pulls a shocker at the convention. Oh wait.. Nothing is shocking anymore because part of 0bama’s goal has been to desensitize America to impeachable offenses or anything immoral, unethical or flat-out unacceptable.
Why is this such a sensitive subject for the Obamunuists?
He keeps showing us forgery after forgery and yet we are not allowed to take a potshots at him about it?
Are his Bona fides sacred texts to only be seen by the high priests?
I did not see it as a joke.
I saw it as a factoid interjection
I think it was a great comment as well. It was (1) a retort to the question over the tax returns and (2) it was a birther tweak framed as a statement of fact. If asked about the BC, he has plausible disability because he is on record as saying he thinks Obie was born in the US. Pressies best be careful about pushing him on this because he has set himself up to pivot to all the other information Obie has kept hidden.
>>He keeps showing us forgery after forgery and yet we are not allowed to take a potshots at him about it?
If he just refused to show us any official records, that would be arrogant, but expected from this person. But, to put out these obvious fakes is an insult to the intelligence of every American and to the office of the President.
This is precisely how to handle the Obama birth certificate “question.” You make light of it, step back, and watch the Obama handlers come unglued. It will make those unfamiliar or skeptical about the issue sit-up and take notice. Who exactly is hiding something here?
If Romney really wants to win this election....he should use more “Birther” facts....listening to the Anti-Birther PhonyCons is a sure loser. Anti-Birthers pretty much left Romney hanging for a few weeks withe the “tax forms release” nonsense...which would have been stopped had the campaign just asked for Obama’s real birth certificate
The Birther issue is a sure winner...and too many PhonyCons are helping Obama by attacking it
Guess what the libs aren’t talking about anymore?
The best analogy I can come up with is when an attacking army in on an offensive charge, they leave themselves vulnerable to a counter attack on their flank at a point they weren’t expecting.
That is what this was. It left them with this hanging in the air all weekend, waiting for another hit.
Joke or not, I think Romney was indirectly telling Obama, “ ok, so your going after my Tax records ? ok then, we will go after your records and your supposed birth certificate “
George, who attempted a run for the Republican presidential candidacy in 1964, pulled out of the running when questions over his natural born Citizenship eligibility came to the fore.
Gov. Mitt Romney, Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep.Ron Paul all provided proof of Article II eligibility for the office of President. All three provided proof of NBC status.
Anyone who believes Romney cares nothing about natural born Citizen eligibility doesn't know the Romney family history.
Nothing is shocking anymore because part of 0bamas goal has been to desensitize America to impeachable offenses or anything immoral, unethical or flat-out unacceptable.
Yes, while those things aren’t shocking to people anymore (at least to the “left”), what IS shocking (to these a$$hats) is when GOOD THINGS happen and common sense is upheld and pushed forward.
Third, President Obama can't stand to be made fun of. His pride won't allow it, his amour-propre cannot countenance a joke at his own expense. If Mr. Romney lands a few very funny lines about the president's leadership, Mr. Obama will freak out. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
You make a good point here. I do believe they have attempted this in chipping away at traditional courtesies and upping the ante on lawless actions. Much of their activity is simply unknown to most. Maybe when they get smoked out America will surprise us with a visceral reaction.
Why? Because it stinks of wuss and fear. Not attractive. Part of Obama's success is his playing the urbane villain to our weaselly milquetoasts. Enough!

So, you believe that Obama should get a pass in regard to Eligibility?
Had the issue been at the forefront in 2008, we never would have an Obama Presidency. Now, in 2012, you want to continue to give Obama a pass on the issue and continue to de facto “support” him?
Even with the attacks from Liberal GOP over the years, Obama has been forced to address the issue....spending $$ on legal fees and forging his birth certificates. Had he Liberal wing of the GOP supported “Birthers” instead of attacking them, we surely would not have much worry from a DNC candidate in 2012.
Have a blessed weekend.
Yes, just keep jabbing that needle. A prick here and a prick there and the public gets to know the gist of this whole issue through thinly veiled humor!
Romney did not get to be gov of a state by just being a nice guy. He has to slice and dice opponents to move up the ladder. I was hoping this is what would happen and it looks like it is proceeding apace. Obummer is pretty easy to slice and dice and after the fact the public is going to wonder why the hell this didn’t happen sooner.
Remember, every US senator signed the Clare McCaskill/Pat Leahy/Barack Obama Resolution 511, April 30 2008, which Senate Judiciary hearing, based upon the testimony of Judge Michael Chertoff, and Barack’s Constitutional Law professor Larry Tribe: My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen, Chertoff replied. That is mine, too, said Leahy. Barack, the global citizen, and naturalized citizen, "A native-born citizen of the US", meaning naturalized and not natural born, was born to an alien father, in direct contravention of The Constitution.
Imagine old Soetoro must be getting nervous if he thinks Romney might go after him on matters of his birth and other areas of his life which he does not wish to discuss with the plebs.
Why is this such a sensitive subject for the Obamunuists?
ImporTANT thing is whether hix parents were US citizens.Obama birth certivicate would show that his father was not uS citizen so obama is not natural born citizen and so not eligible to be president. Obama is trying to distract from this question by directing us to question of his place of birth.
I have a Utah birth certificate as do my Father and Grandfather, something Mitts Father can’t claim.
I just laugh in their face and tell the liberals that “he’s a fake”.
They get all bent out of shape and start with the birther claim.
I respond that HE is a fake, never said anything about a birth certificate!
Then they go ballistic.
“he has no bonifides!”
That puts them in orbit.
Them I follow up with:
“he’s a fake”
Office arguments are the best!!!!!!
I should warn Romney — one more “birther” joke and I will send him a check.
The louder the yell, the closer to the target you are! The joke hit a raw nerve! The folks are losing confidence in the Joker in Chief.
Good for Romney. The MSM might treat Obama like he’s some kind of God, but the rest of us need to be real. He’s not a God and either are any of the other democrat liars...
That’s right. The flames following this funny comment show exactly how deep the arrow went and how on-target it was. And? Is this, too, ‘racist’?
jiggy with it???
just a note... i am seeing 2016 tonight... hope it’s packed.
Everything is racist to liberals or if it can be helpful to label something racist to further the liberal cause then so be it.
Didn’t the zero recently make a BC joke?
No, the opposite. I meant it was cowardly to play it safe and let the libs bully us into not talking about certain things. I personally have my doubts whether Mr. Nom de Plume was born here. I'm certain he is not "natural born" in the spirit of the Founders' wish for a patriot.
Buh bye, Gilligan!
Don’t get me wrong about this...my question is more on the idea if they are going to ridicule the “birthers”, then why is it low down and dirty to make sport of his mocking of the “birthers” by take a potshot when the opportunity presents itself.
The Obamunists are trying to control the terms of the debate again and what they consider proper for them, is improper for us.
Better to keep needling them until they do a full on meltdown.

Why is barry soetoro davis so sensitive about his birth certificate?
“Better to keep needling them...” When Romney gets an opportunity, he should mention that he is human and did slough off once in a while ending up with some C’s in college. “For those of you that think I got straight A’s, it isn’t true and here are my transcripts from BYU to prove it.”
BO did refuse to show any birth certificate for over 3 years, then he pulled out a fake cause Trump forced his hand. At that point he went ahead and killed Bin Laden to take the focus off the fake bc. I’m a birther and proud of it. The last bio that he himself wrote that said he was born in Kenya did it for me.
