Romney Jokes: 'No One's Ever Asked To See My Birth Certificate'
Evan McMorris-Santoro –
At a campaign stop in his home state of Michigan Friday, Mitt Romney made a joke referencing the continued doubts about President Obama's birth certificate raised by Romney supporters like Donald Trump.
"I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where but the both of us were born," Romney said after introducing his wife, fellow Michigan native Ann. "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place where we were born and raised."
An Obama spokesperson watching the speech tweeted Romney was "keeping it substantive & classy" with the line.
