Guess we should have seen this coming.
The Romney birth certificate is out this morning - conveniently published in a Reuters report the day that Mitt Romney was raising cash with “I don’t consider myself birther or not birther” Donald Trump in Las Vegas.
The Romney campaign says they got the request this weekend and sent the certificate Tuesday. And while no one is using this moment to question Romney’s eligibility for President, it does invite discussion about the controversy about George Romney’s run for President in 1968 (you’ll note his birthplace is listed as Mexico).
Oh, the irony.
