Mitt Romney Says to Home State Crowd, “No One Has Asked To See My Birth Certificate” … Looks Like Thin Skinned Obama Can’t Take a Joke

 

For those who thought that Mitt Romney did not have a sense of humor, think again. During a campaign stop in his home state of Michigan. Romney made a joke in describing where he was from sayings, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” Nice.

“I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born at Henry Ford hospital, I was born at Harper hospital. No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

But of course the thin skinned Obama campaign and the all-too complicit corrupt liberal mains stream media complex was quick to respond with faux outrage and condemnation. The vile Obama campaign referred to it as “gutter politics” and the MSM was quick to call Romney a “birther”. Really? Where was the outrage when Team Obama and his Super PACS called Romney a murderer, a tax cheat and a felon? Hmm? Of course the media was no where to be found either when Vice-President Biden fanned the flames of racism and made an inference to putting blacks back into slavery with his “chains” coments. But of course that is not gutter politics.

“This is the kind of gutterball politics that will and should turn the American people off,” Psaki told MSNBC. “This is a pattern. Mitt Romney has questioned repeatedly over the last several months whether the president understands America, whether he understands freedom — he’s wrapped his arms around Donald Trump, one of the originators of the birther movement, so we’ve seen a pattern here.”

You would dare compare calling some one a murderer and a felon to some one making a joke? Only liberals try and get away with this type of moral comparisons. So I guess all the late night comedians like Jay Leno and such are “birthers” as well when they poke jabs at Obama and his birth certificate? Romney stated that the comment was not a jab at Obama. But of course it was perfectly ok for Obama and his minions to joke about the incident with Romney, the dog and the car. That of course is fine.

“No, no, not a swipe,” Romney said. “I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor, you know — we’ve got to have a little humor in a campaign.”

Honestly, so what if it was? Romney has already gone on the record that he believes that Obama is a US citizen. Since when can’t a candidate make a joke about another? Of course that is only when you are making fun of the thin skinned Barack Obama. Suddenly the Obama campaign is in complete outrage. Too bad they were not so concerned about the economy, unemployment and the out of control debt under Obama.

This is just yet another example of the Obama minions and their lackeys in the MSM trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill and distract from the real issues of the campaign and the major problems in the United States.

      RE: “But of course it was perfectly ok for Obama and his minions to joke about the incident with Romney, the dog and the car.”

      Why not? The dog and the car story is an actual incident, whereas the “birther” story is demonstrably false; bordering on, if not actual slander. Only delusional fools continue to repeatedly trot this out as being meaningful anymore (note: I don’t claim or consider this blog entry has trotted a birther claim out, as it is factually covering what Romney said).

      And seriously, Romney refers to this as merely “some humor”? Just how stupid does he think Americans are? Actually, if we are to believe Romney that this was just him being funny, then Romney doesn’t have the smarts to be our president.

      SM, Maybe he should have called Obama a murderer and felon? Would that have been acceptable? So much for your “truth” statement above. Honestly you Libs need to get a life. It was a joke, nothing more. But you and the LEFT’s outrage is the biggest joke.

      Sorry, the LEFT has no credibility when they accuse Romney of killing a cancer patient, accuse him of paying no taxes, accuse him of trying to put blacks back in chains and accuse him of being a felon. Give it a rest. I really want to listen to none of your dribble on this.

      “Romney doesn’t have the smarts to be our president.” Oh that’s right, because Obama is the most intelligent President ever. Yeah, so brilliant he had to hire a dim-wit, ignoramus like Biden to be by his side to make him look and sound good.

      Here is the reason why you, the LEFT, the MSM and Obama and his minions have no street cred on the topic.

      Obama Releases Birth Video at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner. Hmm. imagine this … Obama joked about his birth video to the theme of the movie “The Lion King” which takes place, um Africa? Obama even says it was a joke. So if Obama can make fun of it, why can’t Romney?

      Maybe Romney should have just called Obama and a socialist/Communist … would that have passed the truth test for you? After all his mentor Frank Marshall Davis was a devout Marxist.

      RE: “Where was the outrage when Team Obama (and his Super PACS) called Romney a murderer, a tax cheat and a felon?”

      Outrage could only be possible if Team Obama actually made any of these claimed statements. I don’t believe that they have; so, no outrage.

      RE “Of course the media was no where to be found either when Vice-President Biden fanned the flames of racism and made an inference to putting blacks back into slavery with his “chains” coments. [sic]”

      From my research, there were several thousand news stories found on Google News Search for 8/13-8/14 for “Biden chains.” In my world view, that is not the same as “the media was nowhere to be found.”

      Additionally, my question to readers and news followers in general is: Do you want your media to interpret a news story and tell you what to think (“fanned the flames of racism”), or do you want them to report the event accurately, and you get to decide for yourself how the story fits your understanding and perspective? Why should MSM or any media be expected to call out Biden?
      _______________________________
      SM: Why should the MSM be expected to call out Biden? I love the way you try and act all Innocent and naive when it comes to liberal MSM bias and anything evil that Dems do. Its getting rather old and tired.

      Maybe because they call out Republicans to apologize. WHAT A NOVEL FRIGGIN CONCEPT. That the MSM that votes 90% for the Democrat party actually act in a professional manner and report fairly.

      “[A] lot of people are hurting out there. I’d like to see more action taken and more emphasis given to this issue. I have said before… [that I] thought the media helped tip the scales. I didn’t think the coverage in 2008 was especially fair to either Hilary Clinton or John McCain,” Tapper said. On the 2008 coverage, he noted, “Sometimes I saw with story selection, magazine covers, photos picked, [the] campaign narrative, that it wasn’t always the fairest coverage.”

      [...] outraged by the comments that Mitt Romney made the following comment at a campaign stop in Michigan, “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.” That automatically made the Left and the MSM refer to Romney as a ‘birther”. Really, you [...]

      #3-SM: RE: “Maybe because they call out Republicans to apologize.” Sorry, I have no reference to begin to understand what this could possibly mean (context). :-(

      Also, I thought I was perfectly clear on why I prefer a media to simply report news (what happened), and I’ll interpret that news myself. I don’t want to be preached to and told how I should think about news (according to their values.) That is not their JOB!!!

      Of course, I also clearly pointed out there were thousands of stories on Biden within 1-2 days of his comments; how is that no media coverage?????
      2008 (????) – and here I thought we are in 2012. LOL

      Do you also live in Fantasy Land? You are suggesting something that is so far from the truth that the mere mention of it is a ludicrous comment. It would be nice if there were no murders too, but that isn’t happening either.

      If the corrupt, liberal media complex actually did there job and reported to “WE THE PEOPLE” what the Obama government was doing rather than carrying their water, Obama would have a 30% approval rating.

      There is a bias in the media and it slant to the LEFT.

      #2-SM: RE: “. . . called Obama a murderer and felon.” – I’m sure you have a point with this general paragraph, but I’m unable to connect it to my comment or the article, so am at a loss, currently.

      RE: “It was a joke, nothing more.” – I understand this is your opinion on the comment, but please recognize that is not my opinion.

      Regarding my comment on Romney’s “smarts”, I was thinking of just him as the one covered in the story, and no-one else (i.e. not a comparison). I also used a lead-in premise that cannot be logically separated from this comment without loss of meaning and intent.

      If words have meaning, then “accuse Romney of killing a cancer patient” is quite specific, and should relate to a clear statement of accusation. As I understand the facts, Soptic was the only person to say anything about the cancer and his wife’s death, so any attribution should likely begin with him.

      For the record, Romney has clearly lied on several occasions during this campaign, and he just might be lying on his taxes. In the end, he is the only one who can prove anything as to what has or hasn’t been paid. I’m amazed that I never seem to hear any concern of this lying to date, as if this is acting presidential somehow.

      RE: “the Lion King” joke from Obama; self-deprecating comments or self-directed joking have an obvious context for the speaker. The same can not be said of those who buddy up with others who quote and promote specious claims (Birther), and where a buzz still reverberates on the topic. Every mention may still find converts clinging to the false hope of the “it might be (or is) true” persuasion. In that environment, there is no such thing as just a joke from an opposing side, IMO.

      SM: Sorry, your attempts at justifying this is useless, I suggest you and yours get a sense of humor.

      You have an obvious double standard for everything when it comes to Obama and a Republican.

      You said … “For the record, Romney has clearly lied on several occasions during this campaign, and he just might be lying on his taxes.” HAHAHA, ROTFLMAO … all Obama has done is lie, are you kidding me? Obama said he was a uniter, he has been the most divisive prez ever. He lied about Obamacare that it would lower premiums, costs, etc. he lied that the stimulus would keep unemployment below 7%. He lied that he would cut the deficit in half, use of lobbyists, etc. Then there was that Transparency thing.

      SM – FYI; You may think that personal comments about me, such as below, affect me, and I just wanted to let you know that I couldn’t care less. Personally, I just don’t see how they pertain to or affect the conservation and topic under discussion, so I routinely ignore them.

      “Do you also live in Fantasy Land? You are suggesting something that is so far from the truth that the mere mention of it is a ludicrous comment.

      BTW, I really liked when M. Malkin was honest and admitted the (presumed right-wing) bias of part of the MSM (supposedly Fox?).

      “Why can’t we have somebody who is honest about their biases be up there on the stage,” said Malkin.
      _______________________
      SM: Its not a personal attack, I do not care enough to make a personal attack … it is a fact to anyone who thinks that the liberal MSM is capable of non-bias reporting.

      Yeah, one media outlet FOX News tries to make up for the difference of the liberal bias in the media of NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, NY TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, LA TIMES, BOSTON GLOBE AND ON AND ON AND ON. And you pick one conservative pundit on a Network that actually has many more liberal contributors and provides them with their open point of view. You are desperate.

      If you can’t admit that 95% of the media is bias and they have a liberal slant to their reporting and coverage of stories, or not if they do not meet their native, then you are not credible. That is not a personal attack, that you be a fact. It would like denying that the sun does not rise in the East and set in the West.

      #5-SM: Well, the real focus from my message was:

      “I don’t want to be preached to and told how I should think about news (according to their values.)”

      Is this unusual, or common?
      _________________________________
      SM: It does not matter what you want, that is what occurs every day by the corrupt liberal media complex. If you cannot see and understand that, then its because you agree with it.

      As I have previously said, if Obama was a Republican every day the nightly news and majority of stories would start with Obama’s terrible job recovery and unemployment over 8%. If Obama was a republican the Fast & Furious scandal would have been covered like Watergate. Obama’s exec order to allow backdoor amnesty and telling ICE agents to not follow the laws of the US would have been treated as an impeachable offense.

      Of course the liberal MSM slants to the LEFT. If they actually covered the news and went after Obama like they did GWB, Obama would have a 30-35% approval rating and would lose in a landslide.

    9. RK on August 26th, 2012 1:25 am

      Since I can’t actually say what I’m thinking, I guess I’ll only say I disagree with you, and your definition of “fact”, and have to leave it at that.

    10. Super dave on August 26th, 2012 7:59 am

      It’s about time for Romney to start smacking obama around and give him a littlt of his own street thugism.
