Birthers Aim For New Target: Mitt Romney
As it turns out, the Birther “movement” is an equal opportunity annoyer, willing to cross party lines in their efforts to further a conspiracy. The group of politicians and voters who previously demanded President Obama’s birth certificate now clamor for proof that candidate Mitt Romney was born in the United States.
Romney’s father, George, the former governor of Michigan, was born in Mexico because Mitt’s grandfather escaped to Mexico so he could marry all four of Mitt’s grandmas at the same time. Which really is no different than many of our philandering politicians, it’s just that Romney’s grandpa wanted to put a ring on all of them.
This sordid past is the basis for the birther’s lawsuit, which, according to the LA Times, was…
filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to ‘questions concerning the eligibility’ of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief.
The birthers’ lawyer, Gary Kreep of Ramona, said Wednesday that his clients wanted the issue of Romney’s eligibility raised because of his parents’ long residency in Mexico.
However, the most scandalous thing Mitt Romney’s birth certificate will reveal is that his name is really Willard Mitt Romney, named for J. Willard Marriot. Yes, that Marriot. A real man of the people, that Willard.
Of course, there’s always the chance that Romney won’t even disagree with any of this… and perhaps even embrace it. After all, he’d certainly start polling better among Latinos.
