    Mitt Romney’s Son: Obama Should Release Birth Certificate, Grades

    There’s off message and then there’s Mitt Romney’s son, Matt Romney, who suggested on Thursday that President Obama should release his birth certificate and grades before his father releases his tax returns.
    “He’s certainly not afraid of anything, he’s not hiding anything,” he said of his father in a video recorded by a Patch reporter in New Hampshire. “But I heard someone suggest the other day that as soon as President Obama releases his grades and birth certificate and sort of a long list of things, that maybe he’d do that.”

    Romney's son is a birther. How about that?

    Matt Romney's wisecrack came before an audience in New Hampshire on Friday.

    In response on Twitter, the Obama campaign tweeted, in part, "Guess he doesn't have one of our mugs?"

    Doesn't sound like the kid is a birther, just a smack-mouthed youngster.

    He isn't really a youngster, he's 40 years old -- but he's definitely a smart-ass. I like smart-asses.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Oh yeah. You have to love the "Oh, I was just kidding!" excuse. As if he didn't know precisely what he was doing? really?

    I'm just picturing Mitt shaking his head in disbelief when he heard about it.

    40 yo is a youngster to me - most of my kids are over 40....

    I'm no fan of Romney, but I am also no fan trying to make something said in jest a major gaffe. If you watch the video it is obvious the guy is kidding around.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Typical crap out of the mouth of one of the priviledged children of Romney.

    It is interesting that Romney and his 5 sons have never served one day in the military. I don't believe it is necessary for everyone to be in the military and not everyone is suited for it.

    But I know in my own family I have served and one of my two sons has served in Army. Just find it amazing that out of six of them not one of these bluebloods ever felt the urge to serve.
    Of course they knew that some other " lesser family " would take the burden of defending their country while they played golf at the country club.

    Typical crap? This is the first time I've heard anything about any one of his children.

    So you acknowledge that military service isn't for everybody ... and then rag on Romney and his kids for not serving?
