Obama joke about birth certificate adds levity to campaign

President Obama made a little joke about the "birthers," who’ve stubbornly dogged him during his administration while visiting swing state New Hampshire. While calling out Mitt Romney for raising various fees in Massachusetts, Obama remarked, "He raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me."

The crowd responded with knowing laughter. Even after the White House released his birth certificate in 2011, birther conspiracy theorists continue to make noise; just this week, amateur politico Donald Trump released an inane video asking the president for copies of passport applications and his college record — a lot of paperwork for a commander in chief with a campaign and a huge hurricane on his mind.
