Mitt Romney selling mugs with his birth certificate on them … oh, wait

I’ve been trying to think up one of Prof. Glenn Reynold’s “they told me if I voted for McCain … ” constructs for this, but no luck so far.
Surely the readers can come up with some good ones.

They told me if I voted for McCain, coffee mugs would be judged by the color of their hip irony and not the content of their container.
In fairness, Hawaii does have some great coffee…
It sure does. Toured a little coffee farm in Kona.
They built that business themselves.
Gad this twit begs to be mocked.
Can someone with time on their hands photoshop some Birth certificates of some choice people in history to also be born in Hawaii?
Is that a real one, or the fake one?
Considering that the state of Hawaii hands those out to anybody who is willing to say they were born there, I’m not sure it proves much of anything, even if it’s real.
I wonder where the mugs are made?
see, told you I could present anything as proof of eligibility and the media and GOP would lap me up.
Good one Dave but in that case they should have put the birthsh*tificate on this –> https://store.barackobama.com/obama-2012-store-home-outdoors/obama-2012-store-pets/obama-dog-bowl.html
LOL good point Joy.
I’ve got just 3 words for Bambi over this: pa-the-tic
They told me if I voted for McCain, everyone would have to show their birth certificate to apply for a job…
Let them keep it up. No matter where Obama was born voters have come to understand that his political values are demonstrably the result of miscegenation between the Ivy League pseudo intellectual’s belief in Marxism and Chicago’s thuggish political cronyism.
I can name three Muslim immigrants, one form Bosnia and two from India, who are far more American than Barack Obama will ever be. Each came here for a new life of freedom, worked like dogs and built their own thriving businesses.
They told me if I voted McCain , Sara Palin would be riding roughshod across the country stirring up hillbillies and rednecks.
She didn’t stir up those hillbillies and rednecks by herself. The government helped a lot.
Bu-but, what about this, huh?
Reminder: Before Obama ran for president, he falsely claimed to have been born in Kenya
You know, those side-by-side cups look just like his ears. Coincidence? I think not.
To sign up for T-Ball in first grade, I had to have a Birth Certificate. They turned us away without one, and my parents had to dig it out and go back.
A city rec league makes a short, runty first-grader produce a Birth Certificate to play T-Ball in an age 6-9 league;
People who require the same proof of Constitutional eligibility for a President are kooks and cranks.
Congress investigated John McCain’s eligibility, because he was born in the Panama Canal Zone. His father was a WWII hero and McCain’s personal history is open. On the other hand, Obama’s paternity and personal history are shrouded in mystery, all his records are locked down — and Obama has spent over $2 million keeping ’em that way.
Yet it’s kookery to question Obama’s background.
For the slow learners:
A) What your T-ball league decided to do is irrelevant.
B) McCain was not -strictly speaking- born on US soil. He was arguably a native-born citizen. The investigation was needed to clarify some of the vagueness of the “native born” language, and they did so.
C) Obama was born in Hawaii. His name was printed in two local papers just after he was born. Get over it. Find a real topic to worry about. Like, the economy?
They told me if I voted McCain , he would keep Gitmo open and drive up the body count in Afganistan. . .The govt would spy more on private citizens and institute US drone flights to do so. . . Unemployment and poverty rates would skyrocket. . . Sweetheart deals would be made with connected business’s. . . .Statistics would be fudged to make him look good etc , etc. This is to easy!
Wouldn’t THAT, kinda’ make #44 the original “birther”?
They told me if I voted for McCain, a lying liar of a President would put his face on a mug, lying, and have the audacity to put a likeness of his falsified and fake birth certificate on one also as a direct slap in the face to the American public!
Does that work?
It seems like that might not work.
Back to the drawing board
(R.I.P Niel Armstrong–as great American that needed not to fake his accomplishments, or his very being)
They told me that, if I voted for McCain, it wouldn’t matter. I would have, nevertheless, a “bitter cup” from which to drink.
They told me if I voted for McCain, event the hocking of a coffee mug on his web site would become a political hot potatoe.
try, try again…
Where’s the college transcripts Mr. President???
How come no one remembers you during you alleged time frame of attendance???
And… Where in the %)@&*%@ are the jobs??????
Questions he cannot answer..
America is not just a place, it is a frame of mind. Obama could have been born in the backseat of a taxi in front of the Lincoln memorial and he still would not be an American.
They told me if I voted for McCain, racists would put Barry Soetoro’s image on a white coffee cup
They told me if I voted for McCain, there would be people using Obama’s fake birth certificate to sell cheap novelty items on a web site
They told me if I voted McCain in 20 years every stupid liberal would have a stupid mug with Obamas stupid , jug eared mug on it buried on the top shelf in the back corner of their most remote stupid closet. If you took said stupid mug to the flea market to sell ,it would be so toxic ,all the vendors around you would fail to make a sale for the day. Seriously ,I would like to see the sales figures for Obama merchandise as opposed to 4 years ago.
Ps. In that same closet ,on the same shelf tho more accessable will be a July 2012 issue of Pederasty Today. You know ,the one with Harry Reid on the cover. . .Ok , like Browndog i’m done.
They told me if I voted for McCain someone would produce a forgery of Obama’s birth certificate, then try to make money off it
OK, I’m done.

Remember our President. Never have so few gotten so much at the expense of so many!
Enter ‘fake birth certificate’ in Bing and one of the autofill options is “fake birth certificate templates”! So the basic starting point is readily available.
One analysis I read months ago of the birth certificate as posted on the White House web site was fairly complicated, but one simple conclusion was that it was a bad fake and the “layers” by which it was constructed screamed FAKE!
Oh, sure, all this “fake birth certificate” stuff is fun…
until someone gets mugged.
They told me if I voted for McCain we would get a mug for a President … and they were right!
Get the mug, fill it with pencils buy some sunglasses and a white cane find a good street corner and maybe you too can survive the Obama economic miracle.
And that’s the only way Obama will have anything to do with creating a private sector job….
This inspirational piece I photographed in a dollar store was plainly not intended to be one of Obama’s “comedic” promotional items but I find it far more hilarious than the Birth Certificate mugs. https://twitter.com/#!/SGLawrence/media/grid
As non-Obama supporter, the mugs are hilarious and I wish I could buy them for Democrat friends without the political donation. If Obama’s campaign just pushed the sale of these, with the negative ‘new low’ and made light of Romney’s joke, I wouldn’t be upset.
The country feels divided, more then ever. We’re all extremists on different teams.
Oh, come on. Those coffee cups were made in China.
And so was Obama’s ideology.
Notice it doesn’t say “BORN in the USA”
Fucking phony. I saw 2016 this afternoon, and all of my predictions in 2008 have come true. This anti-colonialist loser hates our country.
Coffee cups aren’t gonna win you the Presidency, Obama. We’re on to you and your ilk.
China is more capitalist than Obama.
After a week, talking about rape, I wish we could lighten up just a little.
It is still just a “certificate of live birth”, where there may or may not have been an official witness to his birth. These certificates were handed out by Hawaiian officials to citizens, illegal aliens, and children born outside of America. It is not sufficient evidence to prove Obama’s eligibility. Still, if nothing else, it does make for a novel mug.
Since only citizens are subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution, and all others are subject to lesser legislative laws, the least controversial standard for “natural born” would be both parents are citizens, either natural or naturalized.
[…] PROF. JACOBSON: Mitt Romney selling mugs with his birth certificate on them … oh, wait. […]
They told me that if I voted for John McCain, the White House would resort to selling the most despicable bigotry we could imagine printed on coffee mugs.
They told me if I voted for John McCain then coffee mugs would replace official documents as proof.
They told me if I voted for John McCain then coffee mugs would be considered witty repartee.
They told me if I voted for John McCain then the President would ask me to put his coffee mugs on my wedding registry.
They told me if I voted for John McCain, the President would be selling Kool-Aid cups on the internets.
[…] Per Professor William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection, I see the Obama Campaign is selling coffee mugs with an Obama mug shot and one of his forged birth certificates on it. […]
There are three separate schools of birthers.
Birther #1 believe that Obama was not born in Hawaii, that he was born in Kenya and is knowingly claiming Hawaiian birth.
Birther #2 believe that Obama WAS born in Hawaii and knowingly claimed to have been born in Kenya.
Birther #3 believe that it is irrelative if he was born in Hawaii or Kenya because he became a citizen of Indonesia which qualified him for foreign student status.
#2 isn’t birther, though, because in that situation, he’s still eligible to be President, he’s just a poser who needed more cred to sell his book than he could get by being a pothead from Hawaii.
And just to prove that you can never out-wacky the left, there’s #4: the various bizarre Palin birth conspiracy theories.
I think the evidence is Obama was born in in Hawaii, but it is clear from his values and philosophy that his upbringing was outsourced.
Mitt never DID show his birth cert…
I asked for a President and all I got was an empty cup!
