Where We Was Borned And Raised

From the Obama - Biden camp: 

Mitt Romney, the Republican [douche bag] 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.

Well, I have taken that minute or two and I have come up with several questions.

First, who is "they"?

Then, presumably to serve the Mormon Church as driver for the Mormon mission in France, Mitt had to have a passport. So, what did he use to prove he was a citizen of the United States?

Primary Evidence of U.S. Citizenship (One of the following):

Previously issued, undamaged U.S. Passport
Certified birth certificate issued by the city, county or state
Consular Report of Birth Abroad or Certification of Birth
Naturalization Certificate
Certificate of Citizenship
 
The State Department would have asked for one of these items. Did Romney skate out of that requirement like he skated out of the draft?

Does Romney not have a Social Security card? To apply for an original card, you must provide at least two documents to prove age, identity, and U.S. citizenship or current lawful, work-authorized immigration status.

We could again presume that the Social Security Administration asked Mitt the Twit for some sort of proof.

The military would have required some sort of proof of origin, but in Romney's case we know he dodged the draft. He "was able to avoid serving in Vietnam because he was on his Mormon mission, driving around the French countryside. (The Mormon church defined missions -- which all good young Mormon men go on -- as a form of priesthood.) In fact, not one of Romney's five sons has served in the military either, despite Mitt arguing for U.S. military involvement in Iraq and elsewhere.

Even more outrageously, when he was asked to justify this hypocrisy, Romney claimed that his sons were serving the country by driving Winnebagos around Iowa and campaigning for him."

The Oracle can only think that it must be a trial for Romney to try navigating the real world while his head is firmly implanted in his anal orifice. Or, does Ann do all of the navigating for him?

And, this is the best the GOP can do!

My suggestion is jerking Romney out of the presidential race - totally - and wait until 2016. Obama can't fuck anything up worse than the current crop of Republicans, and in four years maybe, just maybe, the Republican party can come up with a candidate that isn't a complete douche bag. There has got to be someone, somewhere.

Oh yeah, I came up with one last question. Given the Mormon Church's position on war (they will allow it with conditions) and assuming Romney isn't a Mormon only when it suits him, how will he justify his war-mongering position on an unprovoked attack on Iran should he be able to buy the presidency? Would he be willing to send his sons into battle to fight his war? 

He would need to have some personal skin in the game. Hell, send Ann - she apparently wears the balls in the family.
