President's campaign cashes in on Romney's quip
'Made in the USA' campaign button, sold for $5 on BarackObama.com
TAMPA, Fla. Following Mitt Romneys quip last week that no one has asked to see his birth certificate, Barack Obamas presidential campaign has decided to double down on the birth certificate controversy and cash in, marketing a campaign button sure to help give the controversy new life.
The 2012 Obama presidential campaign is now selling a button for $5 showing a smiling Barack Obama above the slogan Made in the USA and a picture of his birth certificate.
As WND reported, Romneys quip about the birth certificate issue Friday while campaigning in his birth-state, Michigan, drew an immediate sharp attack from the Obama campaign.
Romney told an enthusiastic crowd in Commerce, Mich., I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born.
Noting the local hospitals where he and his wife were born, Romney remarked: No ones ever asked to see my birth certificate; they know that this is the place that we were born and raised.
In response, the Obama campaign shot back just a couple of hours later with a post on the presidents Facebook page saying Romney had directly enlisted himself in the birther movement.
A message sent from Obamas personal Twitter account called it a new low for Romney.
The campaign now has struck a lighter tone, with the Made in the USA button on sale at the BarackObama.com website with the following message:
Theres really no way to make the conspiracy about President Obamas birth certificate completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Obama birth certificate...

Satirical copycat campaign button mocking Obama campaigns 'Made in USA' button
Is the same company/person selling both buttons ?
Okay (yuck). Now where was he born?
Toyotas are made in the USA but they’re still foreign cars.
This is a pretty big FAIL.
Not only does the Constitution NOT base presidential eligibility on where a person was “made”, even the most clueless subset of the clueless might look at “Made in the USA” and wonder why is *doesn’t* say “BORN in the USA”.
You know what jingles (or popular songs) can do... it’s that earworm thing, lol.
Indonesia. Taken directly to Kenya for transport to the United States.
Remember this ?
Assembled in the USA with Foreign Parts.
If I were him, I’d stay away from this issue.
People who know it’s crap will pick it up and run with it, people who believe this crap will be unmoved, people who weren’t paying attention to this crap just might start wondering and researching.
It’s lose/lose, for him.
And *everybody* will know that it’s living in his head, like that “birth certificate on my forehead” comment.
Who suggested these buttons, Biden or Hillary? :)
probably I bet YES the same company is probably selling both buttons
probably both buttons made in China, too
just like most of our American flags nowadays
it is really HILARIOUS he is trying to raise money pretending to be “made in USA”
we will never recover economically if all we can make here is such patently defective merchandise
That serial #61 10641 has varying 1 digits despite the obvious sampling differences. Some have downward hooking serifs, the others a classic Roman concave slope.
Wear with pride, Obozobots!
He’s like a cockroach who reasons, “Hey, if I flick on the light and just stand here, nobody will think I am a cockroach.”
Of course everyone can then look into the well-lighted space and see the cockroach.
Hm. How about, “Made in the USA - Indoctrinated in Indonesia!”
i'm confused. is this talking about the website... or does he mean himself?
if he means himself, the location he was 'made' would usually be where he was conceived.
an entirely different thing from where the child was BORN
either way, the certificate of live birth picture on the button has already been shown to be a forgery. Don't think so... then DARE him to SUBMIT IT OFFICIALLY ANYWHERE
yes, if people want to see what is there in the light.
often, however, people do not wish to see what is there.
(only one person noted that the King had no clothes, a kid, while all the adults failed to acknowledge seeing anything
This button is so childish. Insulting. Stupid. Embarrassing.
Is he running for kindergarten class president?
GOOD. Let them keep this alive. As long as people are reminded of this it will keep the doubts, about his birth place, in people’s minds.
The night before last, Trump said his schedule had changed and he would not be on the convention program. He said he was going back to New York because the convention organizers had decided to NOT put him in the program. Now, it appears he is back in.
Yesterday Reince Preibus got beat up horribly by Chris Mathews on Joe in the Morning on the birther issue. Rather than behave like a man and nail Mathews to the wall on the birther issue, Preibus blabbered all over himself like a wimp, repeatedly stating that he and Romney believed Obama was born in Hawaii. Mathews had the audience laughing and cheering on his blistering ridicule of Preibus. In the wake of this disaster, I wonder if Preibus has had enough and a change of heart in bringing back Trump because of the shellacking he got this morning. Maybe he has concluded enough of this already and finally has decided to take the gloves off. I sure hope so.
