Going Respectable

Donald Trump wants you to know he’s not some crazy “birther.” He’s part of something far more respectable, per this tweet:

.@BarackObama is practically begging @MittRomney to disavow the place of birth movement, he is afraid of it and for good reason. He keeps using @SenJohnMcCain as an example, however, @SenJohnMcCain lost the election. Don’t let it happen again.

Yeah, Team Obama is terrified of the Place of Birth Movement, just like it prays Romney won’t get wise to the exceptional power of The Breitbart Movement (The Vetting!), the Gold Standard Movement, the Objectivist Movement, the Quiverfull Movement, and other potent alliances that RINO John McCain cast aside in his foolish 2008 campaign.

Whatever money the wiggy SOB is helping raise for Romney really isn’t worth it.
