Romney On Birther Reference: “The Crowd Loved It And Got A Good Laugh”

BIRMINGHAM (WWJ) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is responded to allegations from the Obama campaign that he’s aligning himself with extremists in the party.

At a rally in Commerce Township Friday, Romney referenced the discredited rumor that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S.

Speaking on CBS Evening News Friday night, Romney defended his comments.

“Oh, we’re in Michigan, Ann and I both born in Detroit, and of course a little humor goes a long way – the crowd loved it and got a good laugh,” said Romney.

Romney said the comment was not a swipe at the President. “I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he (the President) was born, he was born in the U.S.,” said Romney.
