It’s Only OK When Barack Does It… Obama Campaign Uses Matt Romney’s Birther Joke to Raise Cash

Freedom of Speech For Me, But Not For Thee…

Yesterday, Mitt Romney’s son Matt cracked a ‘birther’ joke at campaign stop in New Hampshire.

The Obama Campaign used the controversial joke to raise cash for the far left president’s reelection campaign.

In an email to supporters today about the joke, Obama for America campaign manager Jim Messina wrote, “This is how the Romney campaign thinks it’s going to win the Republican primary: by pandering to the dead-ender fringe of extremists who still question where the president was born.”

While asking for a donation, Messina said, “we can drive up the cost of this kind of politics… when they do this, you’ve got to do something about it.”

Apparently, only Barack Obama can crack birther jokes.

The Obama campaign also used the occasion to sell more Obama birther mugs.
It figures.
