    Barack Obama again jokes about his birth certificate, outrage ensues …. oh, wait

    Barack Obama again jokes about his birth certificate, outrage ensues …. oh, wait

    Oooooh, Mitt Romney made a joke about his own birth certificate, and the MSM and nutroots go wild!

    Ben Howe at Redstate has the details and video:

    Some politicos are upset about a joke that Mitt Romney made today at President Obama’s expense.

    Romney: “I love being home, where but the both of us were born. No one asked to see my birth certificate. They know this is where we were born and raised.”

    The Obama campaign was immediately flabbergasted that Romney would sink so low, releasing this statement.

    “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.”

    As Howe points out, the person who jokes the most about birth certificates the most is the Obama campaign:

    But really, Romney was just following the Obama Campaign’s own instructions as seen on their website store where you can purchase a coffee mug with Obama’s birth certificate printed on the side. Their description makes clear that birther jokes aren’t only ok, they want people telling them.


    There’s really no way to make the conspiracy about President Obama’s birth certificate completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it — and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Obama birth certificate Made in the USA mug today.

    Now can we call go back to the civility of Obama surrogates calling Romney a murderer and Obama making Seamus the Dog jokes?

    Update: Hilarity is breaking out all over ….

    Line for Romney: “Nobody gets hired till we see the green energy called profit.”

    As is noted by commenters here and by the Instapundit, this is just wonderful strategy by Romney — the ‘picador’ strategy in which Romney proves that he (just like Sarah Palin) can live inside his opponent’s head.

    Now then: remember back in the primary when Gingrich and Santorum supporters were angry because Romney had been mean to their candidates?

    What I said back then was this — politics ain’t beanbag. If Mittens can beat up on Newt, just wait ’til he gets hold of Obama.

    That’s beginning to happen, and I for one welcome it. I want more. I want Mitt to annoy Champ so thoroughly that Champ melts down in a presidential debate. I want the Obama campaign so flustered that Stephanie Cutter accidentally tells the truth. I want David Axelrod muttering to himself that he could always return to the Tribune.

    Champ is going to learn that he’s not the only player who can throw an elbow on the court.

    The Mittens that has so thoroughly enraged and annoyed each and every one of his opponents?

    More, please.

    Reverse-McCain strategy is good and refreshing.

    Give the Leftists no quarter.

    Mock them and then mock them some more.

    We love it!

    President thin skin reacts poorly by whining, big surprise there.

    However, IF Obama had been honest from the beginning about his birth certificate instead of being ashamed of his past none of this would bother him much less wasted his time whining and looking silly as a result.

    There are two possible explanations for Obama repeatedly using a “composite” for public display. Yes, both the COLB and the long form he produced were fakes, i.e. NOT legally acceptable in a Court of Law. His own lawyer in NJ admitted as much. It is no crime to mislead the public by reproducing a birth certificate for public display purposes. If you accept as I do that Obama was born in the US then there can be only two explanations of why Obama insists on the charade of repeatedly showing a “composite” document.

    1) The original was destroyed when Barry Soetoro married and subsequently adopted young Barack. Yes, even the State records would be exspunged. This was normal practice in those days. The only chance of an original showing Barack Obama, Sr. as the father is if Senior or the grandparents kept a certified copy issued right after being born.

    So for messaging purposes, the Obama campaign decided to simplify his past for public consumption which then subsequently backedfired on them because they got caught in a sloppy reproduction fueling the birther movement.

    2) The original was destroyed by the State as in #1 with the adoption by Soetoro but Anne Dunham didn’t know who the father was and put UNKNOWN.

    Either way, Obama got caught trying to fudge his past and it backfired because of his needless and obsessive secrecy by the most transparent POTUS ever. A forced error exposing a paranoid mind.
