Earth to MSNBC - Actually Reuters did want to see Romney's birth certificateTopics: Political News and commentaries
To be clear, Mitt's comment didn't come without justification.
MSNBC (along with many lefty loons on the left side of the blogosphere) has it's loony panties all-in-a-wad over Mitt Romney making a rather innocuous joke about his birth certificate ... calling it "racist" and "the 'most despicable bigotry we can imagine.'"
Well, earth to MSNBC and your fellow loons, back in May, Reuters did indeed bring up the issue of Mitt Romney's birth certificate (see copy of Mitt's certificate at link):
"Finally, there is definitive proof: The presidential candidate was born in the United States, and his father was not.Once again, MSNBC and their fellow liberal-progressives in the 'sphere' are barking up a tree with nothing up 'there' (neither in the tree nor in their 'factual-content-empty' brains).
Yes, Republican Mitt Romney appears eligible to be president, according to a copy of Romney's birth certificate released to Reuters by his campaign. Willard Mitt Romney, the certificate says, was born in Detroit on March 12, 1947.
His mother, Lenore, was born in Utah and his father, former Michigan governor and one-time Republican presidential candidate George Romney, was born in Mexico."
Mark Lowe, over at Race 4 2012, provides some noteworthy context:
How did the crowd react? The article reports "...the crowd roared when Romney made the quip". CBS's Jan Crawford tweeted the following:Why am I not surprised about either the reporters' and crowds' reaction ... nor the response from the wildly hypocritical Obama campaign!At Romney event, two reactions to his birth certificate joke: reporters gasped -- and a crowd of thousands laughed and cheered.**Update**
When asked about Mitt's comment, Obama's Traveling Press Secretary Jen Psaki called it "Gutterball politics". When asked about Obama's joke about the dog on the roof, she called that, " ... a light moment in a longer speech about the wind energy tax credit".
