Obama Responds to Romney Birther Joke

President Obama responds to Mitt Romney's joke about his birth certificate with a simple tweet:


New York Times: "Politicians sometimes think they can get away with saying something profoundly offensive or just plain stupid by acting like it was a joke. It never works, just like it didn't work today when Mr. Romney shamelessly played the birther card in what seems like an increasingly desperate campaign against President Obama."
