Mitt Romney is such an asshole:
Mitt Romney made a birth certificate joke today, prompting President Obama’s campaign to accuse him of lining up with the so-called “birther” movement.
During an appearance in his native Michigan today, Romney said: “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate—they know that this was the place we were born and raised.”
Some of President Obama’s most intense critics continue to question whether he was born in the United States, despite his 2011 production of a birth certificate from Honolulu.
Obama’s campaign quickly condemned the comments.
I repeat: Mitt Romney is an asshole.
The people in the media who are excusing his comments as being merely a joke response to Obama’s Seamus shade are also assholes. (I’m looking at you, Jim Acosta.) The Birther conspiracy is a lie. Romney strapping Seamus to the roof of his car isn’t.
The people who were claiming that because Barack Obama is selling mugs with his birth certificate on it, Mitt Romney’s “joke” is no big deal are assholes. (I’m looking at you, Chris Moody.) That is nothing more than “black people can say ‘nigger’ so why can’t I?” argument.
Mitt Romney has pandered to and courted Birthers. (Donald Trump, anyone?) Mitt Romney is currently running dog whistle ads that accuse President Obama of gutting the welfare work requirement, despite the ads having been condemned as false by anyone with two brain cells to rub together.
