Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is bringing up the birther issue. Money Mitt joined the birther team when he told a rally of supporters "no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate."
As reported by the Associated Press:
The presumptive GOP nominee, joined for a rally outside Detroit Friday by running mate Paul Ryan, joked that he had been born in a nearby hospital and that "no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. "
The president's reelection campaign swiftly responded that Romney was directly enlisting himself in the discredited "birther movement" and that "should give pause to any rational voter," said Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt.
Obama has been dogged throughout his presidency by question about his birthplace. He released a long form copy of his birth certificate last year, showing he was born in Hawaii in 1961.
Romney grew up in Michigan and his father, George Romney was a popular governor of the state.
Looks like Mitt Romney has nothing else to hang his hat on in this race, and so is resorting to old tactics from 2008 when it comes to Obama. Try harder, man.
