Mitt Romney-Birther

It was meant as a joke, but it's strangely similar to a joke where you pin down a gay classmate and shave the guy's head. 
The problem with Mitt stooping to making the birther joke about no one asking him to see his birth certificate is that it betrays his spectacular lack of diplomacy and sense of nuance in a manner consistent with his disastrous trip to Europe and Israel.   This is a guy who lacks the skill to run a country.  In the business world, if you manage to offend a major client in this way, you get fired.

Speaking of fired, one reason the joke isn't such a good joke is that Romney's never actually repudiated the birthers.  He even pals around with Donald Trump.

If you remember, Obama made a joke about Seamus recently and the Romney campaign took offense.  One significant difference, the Seamus story was true and it came from Mitt's son.
