Mitt Romney's son is a birther

Posted By on Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 11:09 AM

Republicans and Democrats alike expect another Mitt Romney chameleon performance when and if he wins the Republican presidential nomination. His pandering to right-wing religious cranks in Iowa will be replaced by the "moderate" and "progressive" Romney that brought Obamacare to Massachusetts, had room in his heart for abortion rights and so on.

But that day lies ahead. Today, the Romney clan is wearing birther garb. His son Matt seemingly has joined the call demanding to see President Obama's birth certificate. (It's long been seen and judged legitimate.) This numbnutz also commented approvingly on the proposition that Obama must release his college grades before Daddy Romney is made to release his tax returns. One record is irrelevant; one relevant. Such rational thinking has no place in a Republican primary or, apparently, at least one branch of the Romney family.
