Video: Willard Goes Full Birther, Brags “‘No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate'”


    Is this THE MOST despicable presidential candidate in our lifetimes? It’s hard to think of a worse one.  No wonder why he’s buddies with Donald Trump, they think very much alike. Before today, I thought Romney was just pandering to racists, running ads that were right on the edge of racism, etc. After this, I’m starting to think Romney may believe it himself. Ugh.

    UPDATE: The Obama campaign responds.

    Throughout this campaign, Gov. Romney has embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them. It’s one thing to give the stage in Tampa to Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio, and Kris Kobach,” press secretary Ben LaBolt said in a statement. But Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America,” LaBolt said.

      … negative campaigning. They must be desperate.

      Mitt Romney and his fellow travelers are playing the race card as hard as they can.  It excites and revs up the base of the Republican party which at its’ heart is essentially racist. The only way to really deal with them is to turn out big and stomp on them hard in the polls this November.  They are beyond reason.

      When is a reporter going to ask Romney what he thinks of the Book of Mormon’s teachings that God prefers white people?

      They should be able to get this question in since it is not about Todd Akin or taxes.

      No one ever asked to see George Romney’s birth certificate when he ran for president. He was born in Mexico and came to the United States with his parents as a young child, escaping violence in Mexico. His family was part of a Mormon group that originally went to Mexico to continue practicing polygamy.

      I guess back then the U.S. was a kinder, gentler place than it is now. That, plus the fact that George Romney was white.

      The Republican Party is a parody of what it used to be when it wouldn’t have tolerated the nutjobs that are controlling the party now. RIP GOP.

      Well Obama has released 2 copies of his birth certificate. examined the original copy and talked to officials in the State of Hawaii about it. The organization then declared the certificate to be authentic and Obama to be a US citizen.

      A lot of us have questions about Romney’s tax returns. He refuses to release them and says “Trust Me”.

      Who is the more trustworthy, Obama who releases documentation to be examined, or Romney that won’t release anything?
