As much as I despise the over-privileged liar, I don't think it's anything more than him trying to make an off-the-cuff joke. Which he shouldn't do because he's just not funny and his attempts to be funny almost always end as terrible gaffes.

It was only an issue for Obama due to the Racist Birthers. No one is really going to raise it for Mitt.

I don't think Romney should try and joke about anything, as he has no Charisma what so ever. Even GWB has more than him, he is just a boring person IMO.

Saying that, it should not matter when electing a president but the so called "Brew Test" has picked the last 7 elections in the US, so people do vote that way.

You're right and it's a silly way of selecting a President.
You're also right about Romney having no charisma at all. Yes he is a very boring candidate but that wont stop me from voting for him.
I'd rather have a beer with Mitt Romney because then I would have won in challenging his wacky Mormon beliefs.   
I'd have to mouth off to a police officer and refuse to show ID in order to get treated to a beer with Obama.

How is this any different than the "brew test"? Both are equally idiotic reasons to vote for a candidate.

Too much joking is not a good idea for politicians.

That would be the ultimate response. If Obama says this I'm giving you the credit!

But love him or hate him, Rush Limbaugh came up with a great line today... He said he finally realized why Obama kept slamming Romney to provide his tax returns...

Limbaugh said "Obama wants to show his voters what a tax form looked like!"

Gotta admit, that was a good one when you're looking at it in a funny joking way.

Here we go again:

The Republican governer of Hawaii released both the legal short form and legal long form birth certificate for Barak Obama. No one but no one to the right of him liked or believed it. But, it is out there for all to see.

Unlike Romney's tax returns...

If it were really an off-the-cuff joke, he'd have made sure to point that out. Which I'm not aware he did. So one can conclude that, whether Romney actually believes Obama was born in the US or not, the statement was intended for some political gain.

Though I suppose the other conclusion one could draw is that Romney is a complete idiot, as he disregarded his own well-publicized "take the higher ground" campaign tactic and gave the Democrats something with which to associate himself with the extreme lunatic elements of the Republican party, at a time when there has been no shortage of lunatic elements of the Republican party coming out of the woodwork. I'm sure his campaign staffers are jumping for joy now that they have to spend time and energy downplaying this when they should be focusing on all the positive stuff they're trying to bring out for next week.

Mitt Romney stated that both he and his wife were born and raised in Detroit, Michigan and the area. I think that this was a deliberate statement. It was to tie him to a more typical Midwestern background of the majority of voters and doesn't have to prove it, while Pres. Obama was born in the then new state of Hawaii and spent childhood years in a foreign and mostly Islamic land as well as exotic Hawaii, a place very different in style, ethnic diversity than 'mainland', Midwestern America.

In effect, Romney was saying he was the 'real American' born and raised, unlike Pres. Obama. It has racist undertones as well.

I bet if Pres. Obama's mother and/or his birth father were still alive, all this stupid birther crap would have never been brought up.
