Romney Goes Birther

Now I realize that Mitt Romney's official position up until now of not distancing himself from Birthers because he "needs to get to 50.1% or more" is pretty disgusting, but this is a whole other level of appealing to the racist vote:

"I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born at Henry Ford hospital, I was born at Harper hospital. No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."
 Personally my favorite part is the 4 second pause just before Romney says the birth certificate line, as if some small part of him questions this decision before being overruled by his blind ambition.  It's also especially classy given that he's spent the last week and a half attacking Vice President Joe Biden of using racist "code words."
