Mitt Hits: No One's Ever Asked to See My Birth Certificate

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Mitt Romney and Ryan are drawing a huge crowd in Michigan. And get this...

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

ROMNEY: They know that this is the place we were born and raised.

RUSH: Right on! Right on! Right on!

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Romney and Ryan were in Michigan before a big, big crowd. And here is Romney, I'm convinced, test-driving something. I think this line is a test-drive.

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

ROMNEY: They know that this is the place we were born and raised.

RUSH: Right on! Right on! Right on!

RUSH: Okay, now, as you can imagine the media is in a tizzy. The media is in a tizzy. There's a tweet here from Jan Crawford at CBS: "At Romney event, two reactions to his birth certificate joke: reporters gasped -- and a crowd of thousands laughed and cheered." There's another tweet, this from a guy named Philip Rucker who offers the context. "Romney spoke of his birth certificate just minutes after Ryan reminded the crowd of Obama's '08 'cling to guns and religion' quote."

So Ryan's out there talking about Obama and his bitter-clinger quote. Then Romney gets up to the microphone, it's his turn to speak, and he test-drives that line about nobody's ever had to ask to see his birth certificate. I'm gonna tell you what. You know, I'm gonna make a prediction for you. It's gonna be fascinating to watch. The Obama bashing at the Republican convention is gonna be delicious. It's gonna be five-star restaurant type stuff. I mean, you are gonna loooove it.

You are going to eat it up, all the Obama bashing. And I'll bet you what's happening now is the networks are trying to figure out how they can avoid airing any of it, but it's gonna be tough. Because, you know, Christie is gonna be out there. He'll be loaded for bear. They're gonna go ahead and nominate Romney on Monday, by the way, instead of Wednesday just to get it done because of the hurricane. Here's one more Romney bite from this afternoon, Commerce Township, Michigan.

ROMNEY: We can compete with anyone in the world. We will compete and we will win. And, by the way, if we do those five things, we'll create 12 million jobs --

CROWD: Yeah!

ROMNEY: -- and finally see a rise in take-home pay!

CROWD: Yeah!

ROMNEY: And so from our standpoint, we don't want four years of what we just had; we just want four years of what I've just described: a brighter, more prosperous America, with a strong and prosperous future.

CROWD: Mitt! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!

RUSH: I'll tell you, if Romney and Ryan win, we're not gonna need to wait for calendar 2013 to see movement. You wait. If Romney and Ryan win, you're going to see immediate economic results. You're going to see immediate changes, positive changes. You wait. There are a lot of businesses that do have some money. They're sitting on it. They don't feel comfortable expanding. The more they make, the more that's gonna be taken from them. And then taxes are going up.

There's a lot of inactivity out there in the American private sector, based simply on outrage and fear of what's in store if Obama wins another four years. But, you know, this Obama bashing that's gonna take place at the convention? Let me put something in perspective for you. A lot of people, viewers, are going to hear it for the first time. They haven't heard Obama bashing before. The late-night comedians don't tell Obama jokes. They're still out there saying there's nothing funny about the guy.

And, in a way, that's true. Narcissists are not particularly funny people, but they're covering for him. "Ah, there's nothing really here. Nothing to see here. No big joke here. Here's a very serious guy. He's the first black president! How in the world do we make jokes about that?" So there hasn't been a whole lot of Obama criticism that the audience of the mainstream media has been exposed to. At least not on their televisions, folks. Not on their TVs.

I think people are gonna love it.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Okay. So guess what? The regime is very, very, very upset. Grab audio sound bite number 24. This is Romney in Michigan today, and a little birth certificate joke. Listen to this...

ROMNEY: I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised --

RUSH: Yeah!

ROMNEY: -- where both of us were born.

RUSH: Yeah!

ROMNEY: No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

ROMNEY: They know that this is the place we were born and raised.

AUDIENCE: (roaring laughter)

RUSH: Right on. Right on. So guess what now? The press secretary for Obama 2012, Jen Psaki. It's P-s-a-k-i, so just guessing that she pronounces it "Peh-sah-key." See, I'm at a disadvantage. I never hear these names pronounced and I don't want to purposely mispronounce names, so I have to run through all the possibilities. At any rate, she's out there saying that what you just heard Romney say, that birth certificate joke, is "gutter ball politics." Now, this is one of the women, this Jen Psaki babe, who said that Romney might be a felon.

She said it along with Stephanie Cutter and Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz. And Psaki also lied when she said she didn't know Soptic. (Soptic is the guy in the ad who claimed that Romney killed his wife.) So here you have a woman who claimed that Romney might be a felon 'cause of what happened at Bain, and that Romney killed a guy's wife. So Romney's out there telling a joke about the birth certificate and THAT is "gutter ball politics"!

Hey, Psaki? A little observation.

I thought this birth certificate thing was a win-win for you guys.

Because only kooks and idiots and extremists believe that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery, right? So if that's the case, Jen, wouldn't you want people making jokes about that? Wouldn't you want people joking about it, because wouldn't it be hurting them? Isn't that the kind of thing that you claim the independents don't like hearing? "They don't want to hear about Obama's birth certificate. They love Obama! The independents, they like Obama. They like his 'blackness.' They like the fact that he was born in Hawaii. They don't like people making jokes about it."

So what's the deal?

Why are they so sensitive about this?

And there is one real possibility: that Obama is such a narcissist that you don't dare criticize him. I don't care who you are and I don't care what it's about, you don't dare criticize Barack Obama! You criticize the first black president and it's racist, and it is "gutter ball."
