If Putin came over here 20 years ago, got some woman pregnant and she had a kid here and we find out his dad is Putin, imagine the crap that would hit the fan. Now put this back in the 1948 timeline when we really distrusted the Russians."

Ladies and gentlemen, the average RON PAUL supporter, who is convinced that Romney is a communist spy.

The true RON PAUL believers I know hate Rmoney far worse than Obama.

Which is why I don't believe all their delusions of him causing a stink at the convention and, perhaps, getting RAND PAUL as VP or things like abolishing the Federal Reserve into the platform will ever come true. What use is it to the Republican party to cater to them if they aren't going to vote? RON PAUL's delegates will be told to get in the back of the room and STFU, and you won't hear a peep from them.

jake_lex: RAND PAUL as VP


Hey now, I'm convinced that's going to happen too. It actually makes sense for the ticket, plus gets a few of those nutjobs to calm down. It's a good choice if they stray away from the perfectly safe choices to ones that have more impact.

I'm actually surprised he released his birth certificate, which honestly looks a little fake. I really hope that's an updated reprint with modern font.

Once you've embraced the derp it gets into your being. It consumes, it grows, it engulfs. This country embraced the derp a while ago, and there's no turning back at this point.

Romney is mostly made in China. The people who made him committed suicide after they saw their work.

I still think it is going to be Rubio but I also wonder if the party is going to hold off and run him in 2016. It would also help Romney in FL but he should win the state anyway. When Obama won Florida I was surprised. After the way it swung Republican in 2010 makes me think that most folks were just pissed off at Bush and Co.

An obvious forgery. What's up with the word 'VOID' along either side of this alleged "document"?

"because George Romney was born in Mexico, his candidate son is not a natural-born citizen, and therefore Constitutionally ineligible to occupy the Oval Office."

Extending this logic, only those descended from the original folks that walked across the Bering Land Bridge, or boated across, counts as natural born.

Of course you could extend it to mean that since humans did not originally evolve here NO-ONE is natural-born.

Ok, wow, I just caught the bottom right with the date issued. So good, it is a modern reprint.

As I recall from the Birthers, that isn't proof. We need to see the original, this is clearly a fake.

I would be concerned that Putin had a really fast DeLorean.

I wish they would release a Romney or Obama BC with comics sans and claim it official. That would be fun.

why doesn't 0bama say something to stop this?

The "logic" is not even internally consistent. Obama birthers have to argue that only jus solis (born on U.S. soil) confers natural-born citizenship,* thus it was not sufficient that his mother was a citizen. Whereas Romney birthers have to do the exact opposite and argue that only jus sanguis (born to citizen parents) confers natural-born citizenship.

* They also have to deny the provable fact that Obama was provably born in Hawaii, but since they have a long history of denying observable reality, that's not too surprising.

Is Romney a lizardperson from the planet Nibola, sent here on a space ship disguised as an asteroid that landed on the cure for cancer destroying it then afterward, he left the ship, and immediately destroyed the 5 nearest hospitals full of babies and mothers and also sent the bubonic plague back in time in an attempt to wipe out the human race?

So funny...on one end we have liberals in both parties whining that Romney "isn't embracing the Hispanics enough (illegals)" while another splatter of libs in both parties now claim "Romney is from Mexico, not eligible"

I think I will vote for Plegdov Borschtdrinkovsky....a haberdasher originally from Tadjikistan. Since he was born when Tadjikistan was part of the USSR...there is no proof he was born in Tadjik.

We just want the truth. If we could just see some documentation, we will need to verify it of course. A lot.

If only MItt would release details of the original purchase price, mileage, proof that regular oil changes were made and documentation that the vehicle passed air-care I'd be willing to take a test drive. I want the long form invoices, not just the receipts.

/farking and craigslisting at the same time
 
2012-06-09 02:28:41 PM  
Look, I'm sure Romney is a natural born US citizen. However I think it's a little suspicious that he hasn't released his kindergarten records. What could he be hiding there?
