Romney’s son makes birther joke


With all the self-defeating of Republican presidential candidates, the best thing for Mitt Romney has been to just sit back quietly and let his competitors destroy their own candidacies. Last man standing wins. I guess Romney’s son Matt didn’t get the memo, who had this to say when asked whether Mitt Romney should release his tax returns:

“I heard that someone suggested that as soon as President Obama releases his grades, and birth certificate, and a sort of a long list of things, then maybe he will.”

Brother Tagg Romney jumped in and said, “That was not my dad who said that.”

Matt Romney later tweeted regret that he’d repeated what he called “a dumb joke.”

A dumb joke, indeed. But I don’t think it will cost him as much as anything that Rick Perry said or Herman Cain allegedly did.
