JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

President Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina sent out a fundraising e-mail to supporters Friday calling on them to donate in response to Mitt Romney’s birth certificate joke in Michigan earlier the same day. 

The message:

Benjamin —

Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president of the United States, just said this:

“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

Take a moment or two to think about that, what he’s actually saying, and what it says about Mitt Romney.

Then make a donation of XX or more to re-elect Barack Obama today:

Thanks,

Messina

Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America
