At a campaign rally in Commerce, Michigan, Mitt Romney aligned himself with the racist, delusional birthers (along with his bud, Donald Trump) with this comment:
“ I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital, I was born in 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. ”
I liked Tommy Christopher’s response:
At a campaign event in Commerce, Michigan, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made a naked appeal to racist birthers, telling the crowd “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.”
Days after MSNBC’s Touré pointedly refused to include Romney in his apology for using the n-word to describe the campaign’s tactics, it appears the commentator’s critics owe him an apology.
The Obama Campaign's response via Ben LaBolt, Obama’s National Press Secretary:
“Throughout this campaign, Governor 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. But Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America.”
The Obama Campaign is also responding on Twitter.
