I find it cute that Mittens wants to run away from his governance in Mass. and his role in Romney Care, but decides to make this bold stance:
Mitt Romney forcefully said Tuesday night that he believes President Barack Obama was born in America and that “the citizenship test has been passed.”
“I think the citizenship test has been passed. I believe the president was born in the United States. There are real reasons to get this guy out of office,” Romney told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow the day after he formally announced that he’s exploring a run for the White House. “The man needs to be taken out of office but his citizenship isn’t the reason why.”
I don’t know why he is even wasting his breath. The same people who think that Barack Obama is a Kenyan muslim non-citizen also think that Mitt Romney belongs to a cult. They aren’t going to listen to him, they aren’t going to vote for him, and no matter what you do, they are going to be convinced they are doing the work of Jeebus while the corporate wing of the GOP continues to rob them blind. Thomas Frank could write a book “What’s the Matter with These Morons” and he would be talking about them.
Maybe Romney is calculating this will get him some credibility with important people like… the Politico and the rest of the Beltway media. As we have just learned, the bar for seriousness is incredibly low. Just last week, Ryan proposed cutting taxes on the rich and paying for them by ending Medicare and Medicaid and was met with starry eyed fanbois throwing their panties at him, so maybe all you need to do to be considered serious with these clowns is to acknowledge Obama is American.
