Mitt Romney took the low and easy road with yet another mention of President Obama's birth certificate on yesterday while in Commerce Township, Michigan. Instead of using his valuable time with the voting public giving (still unheard) details about his platform, he made the following comment:
"I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born," Romney said. "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".
It's gotten to the point were the birther comments are so common place that we hardly raise an eyebrow anymore. But we should. Romney's campaign aide says that he was only referencing Michigan....If you want to convince me that I'm being overly sensitive, that something is wrong with me and I can't take a good joke, forget it, it's not gonna happen. Romney's comments were very contrived and said at the right time in the right place to get a desired response.
There are those who believe that the American system is so flawed we could elect a president and not know with 100% certainty that he is an American. Those that believe with all of our technological advances, not only in America, but indeed, throughout the world, we have been duped by the son of an African student and an American student. That this has been a diabolical plan for over fifty years to be played out now.... Really??? It is difficult for me to believe that "thinking" people can have such a negative opinion about my America.
Romney, leave the jokes to the comedians. How about spending some time talking about women's rights, undocumented immigrants, explaining the the difference between rape and "legitimate rape", your stance on abortion, same sex marriage, education for all, unemployment and jobs..... oh and while you're at, explain why your tax rate is lower than mine.
