Mitt Romney: Racist or Dumb**s? (One little comment drives them off the pier)

In what is rapidly becoming the norm for Mitt Romney, he opened his mouth and something stupid popped out. This time, it is a comment that references the birtherism ridiculousness (and if you don't think it's ridiculous, you're a [** **] . Go read another blog.) Speaking at a rally in Michigan, Romney said, "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate."

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie . . . you only need to look as far as the bio supplied by O to his agent that was on their website for years and years to find O is the original birther.

Well, vet, a single comment seems to be driving a lot of people off the edge lately.

People seem to be really, really uptight right about now.

I heard Mitt’s comment on the way to the grocery and I ROARED, then I CHEERED :DD

It was a thing of beauty.

Bravo, Mitt, bravo!

You are correct. Obama started this all by himself by claiming he was born in Kenya when it suited his purposes.

The big question is: Did he claim foreign student status at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard? Inquiring minds want to know.

I love watching Dems totally freak out about a supposedly “Non issue” if Obama were truly born in Hawaii like he claims he was he would just laugh at something like this, just laugh it off, but the way they are reacting, will just make people start to think there might be something to this. Dems know that Obama was born in Kenya, they have the tape of his aunt saying in Kenya that she saw him being born. They know the truth, and they are freaking out because they know the birth certificate IS an issue now

Jamie has this so wrong. What Mitt meant was saying is that he’d never been asked for his birth certificate, because he is white. Only half the people should be asking about Obamas’ BC since he is half white s/

A clever thing to say to see the crazy OBOts go more coo coo cocoa puffs. LoL.

Obama could put this to rest by showing his long form forgery birth certificate to one of the 150 court cases that have asked him to prove he was born in Hawaii.

When Romney gets up to speak to a crowd and repeats the nastiness of birther racism ...

There they go again!!!

It's now OFFICIAL. If you're a "birther" then you're a "racist". Get used to it.

Asking for legitimate documentation is not bat sh!t crazy. Refusing to show legitimate documentation for three years is.

Actually, the main person to blame for the suspicions of the ‘birthers’ is...Barack Obama/Barry Soeweto. He is the one who has gone to great lengths to conceal any documentary evidence of his background, and who has released provably false or contradictory information.

Wow. You just make a joke about his Birth Certificate and his toadies start spitting and throwing the F word around.

As others have noted, O is the original birther. At one time it suited him to be considered exotic. Now it doesn’t. But if you take him at his (former) word, you’re an (expletive)(expletive).

Wow.

Mittens will not win any respect with me by throwing a tease to the birther crowd even if it did stir the up MSM.

If Mittens want some respect from this conservative, it will take more than a harmless little throw away line like that. He will have to grow some cajones and tell his handlers to stick it where the moon don't shine and take his VP over to Chick-Fil-A and sit down before an onlooking world and have a nice lunch.

That will not only drive the MSM crazy but it will buy Mittens a little more love on conservative forums such as this one.

What is even more troubling is that most of the GOP talk radio and GOP media agrees with the MSM Liberal Media spin on the Obama Eligibility issue. They were going against Conservatives on the Eligibility issue well before going against Conservatives on the Akin senate bid....

The liberals will whine over anything the GOP says. The real scary part is that many in the GOP Media go along with the Liberal MSM media

There was nothing wrong with what Romney said. The Obama campaign has called Romney a felon, a murderer and who knows what else - and you’re bothered by Romney making a crack about Obama’s birth certificate?? - you sound like McCain.

Romney is running a much better campaign than McCain ever did...and Ryan scares the shit out of the Dems - brilliant pick.

The VERY fact that the Democrats went into a major snit over this comment by Romney tells me one thing: the Democrats do NOT want to discuss this issue, one that could cause a Constitutional crisis if the real truth is revealed.

Dems have known since the beginning that Obama was not born in Hawaii. They just wanted him to win so badly because they know what we all know, that Obama would fulfill their dream of turning America into a Communist country. I knew that about Obama from the beginning, that he was a Commie, the Dems saw it too so they did whatever it took to make sure he was the nominee, even though they knew he wasn’t a citizen

“This is hilarious! It must suck to be a liberal and to be so humorless.”

Is that an oblique reference to the alleged Obama//// “Larry Sinclair’s” episode?
Or his Mentor/Daddy Frank Marshall Davis?

Mitt has noticed one thing: the Left is completely humorless about being made fun of. A few more tweaks might drive Barry into a psychotic episode.

out by the very people he hoped to rule.

Some one stick a pencil in his mouth before he
bites his tongue off, or then again, maybe not.

It’s gonna happen. Just a matter of time.

It would be nice if it happened before the election, but his handlers might be able to help him hold it together until then. If it doesn’t happen before the election, watch for a major meltdown when he loses. It might not happen in public so be alert for him to “disappear” for a while, or have a sudden “illness.”

Why is everybody missing this?
Romney mentioned the hospitals, BY NAME, in which he and his wife were born. That is very important. If the media don’t show the hospitals being named they are leaving out an important element. EVERYBODY IN LOWER MICHIGAN KNOWS THOSE HUGE HOSPITALS BY NAME AND LOCATION (within the city limits of Detroit). A huge number of voters were born in those same hospitals. To many of those people,in a potential swing state, he is more than ever - own of their own.

For what reason?

Because it makes it sound like he's saying, "Hey, look at me. I'm a white guy. You don't have to worry about where I was born..."

And after these 4 years, my tagline says it best.

I’m still waiting for someone to explain why it’s stupid to expect someone that wishes to be POTUS to follow the Constitution

someone should REQUIRE 0bama to OFFICIALLY submit his birth certificate... if its above board and all.

why not? what’s the problem??

just submit it... or are they agreeing with the birthers that the certificate is a fraud

which is it? can’t have it both ways
