Obama markets birth-certificate button
by Jerome R. Corsi
'Made in the USA' campaign button, sold for $5 on BarackObama.com
TAMPA, Fla. – Following Mitt Romney’s quip last week that no one has asked to see his birth certificate, Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has decided to double down on the birth certificate controversy and cash in, marketing a campaign button sure to help give the controversy new life.
As WND reported, Romney’s quip about the birth certificate issue Friday while campaigning in his birth-state, Michigan, drew an immediate sharp attack from the Obama campaign. Romney told an enthusiastic crowd in Commerce, Mich., “I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born.” Noting the local hospitals where he and his wife were born, Romney remarked: “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate; they know that this is the place that we were born and raised.” In response, the Obama campaign shot back just a couple of hours later with a post on the president’s Facebook page saying Romney had “directly enlisted himself in the birther movement.” A message sent from Obama’s personal Twitter account called it a “new low for Romney.” The campaign now has struck a lighter tone, with the “Made in the USA” button on sale at the BarackObama.com website with the following message: “There’s really no way to make the conspiracy about President Obama’s birth certificate completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it – and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Obama birth certificate Made in the USA button today.” Shortly after the Obama campaign button was introduced, a “Made in Africa” satirical lookalike appeared. http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/obama-markets-birth-certificate-button/
