Romney goes birther and the Obama campaign rips Mitt a new one.
Romney:WaPo, Greg Sargent, The Plum Line
“I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised. Where both of us were born...No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
The Obama campaign quickly put out a response:
“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.”
Thanks Mitt for once again taking your own campaign off message.
