#1 He can poke fun about it himself, no problem. Nor is there a problem with him calling himself shameless kaffir, just don't let anyone else say it. Also quite alright to slot dozens each week end in Chicago, to include innocent infants and children. We have our own standard of decorum. You just wouldn't understand.

#3 Romney's campaign has stated in the past that the candidate does believe Obama was born in the United States.
Maybe he ought to talk to Sheriff Joe and get educated.

#4 I think it was smart for Romney to do this. Champ likes to trash-talk but he doesn't like it thrown back at him. I'd like to see Romney start to live inside Champ's head for the balance of the campaign.

#5 The other side of this is that Romney is putting out the idea that regardless of where he was born Obama is not an "American" in values, culture or principles.

#7 Romney should release his birth certificate in lieu of his tax returns, then pretend it was just a mistake on the part of his staff.

#8 Few things are more obnoxious than a thin skinned narcissist...

#9 They don't get it. The point is that this guy is more of an American than loads of those with birth certificates that live and work within the Beltway.

#10 The writing between the lines is not actually about birth certificates. I don't expect the liberal press would get it. Romney acts America so nobody would bother to check, you just know. Obama on the other hand does so many things that just seem foreign that it builds up doubt in the mind warranted or not.
Brilliantly crafted joke that works on multiple levels and that it gets under Obama's skin is just icing on the cake.

#11 Obama thought he was born in Kenya until he thought he wasn't.

#14 1) Obama is president, so I assume someone did check.
2) that Birth certificate "scan" on the website is totally false.
Without going into Birther conspiracy theory stuff, that PDF is rather odd.

#15 His staff is so incompetent, they could not even make the forgery look real.

#16 #8 is on the mark. He can't stand the ridicule. His hissy-fits make him look even more foolish

Pellosi signed the statement confirming Obama's eligibility.

#18 Nuff said Iblis, Pelosi signed the certification statement: both of them. Both Pelosi and Obama are serial liars. Pelosi is a few fries short of a happy meal. Looks like Romney struck paydirt on his comment.
