Why aren’t people asking for Mitt Romney’s birth certificate?
Because he’s a white guy and everyone in the nation knew his mother and father. President Barack Obama is a Black man with a funny name and a father from another country.
So no Mitt, nobody cares about your birth certificate, but that’s not a testament to your authenticity as an American, it’s a testament to the fact that Americans are still deeply xenophobic, if not downright racist. And you bringing it up like you did is a testament of the degree to which you will exploit any stupid prejudice this nation is hanging onto for your own gain.
