In response to the burgeoning wifer movement founded by Bill Maher, Mitt Romney released his birth certificate, but still won’t tell us how many wives he has.
In coordination with Donald Trump’s numerous birther related media appearances today, the Romney campaign decided to get cute and release the Republican nominee’s birth certificate. But no one really doubts where Mitt Romney was born; the big question is how many wives does he have?
As wifer movement founder Bill Maher put it, “Mitt Romney comes from a Mormon background. I don’t know how many wives he has. I am not saying I believe in that. I am just saying he was born on a Mormon compound. I’m not a wifer, but for some reason he has never shown his original marriage certificate.”
None of the wifers are saying that Romney has multiple wives. We just haven’t seen the evidence that he doesn’t have multiple wives. We regular Americans a.k.a. Joe Twenty Four Packs who only have one wife want to know that Mitt Romney is just like us, so why won’t the Romney campaign release Mitt’s marriage certificate for the world to see?
It isn’t difficult, and these questions are lingering. If the Romney campaign wants the questions about whether or not Mitt has followed in his great-grandfather’s footsteps and had multiple wives, all they have to do is show us the proof. I am not saying that I believe Romney has multiple wives. Personally, I believe that the Republican nominee only has one wife, but there a lot of people out there asking, how many wives does Mitt Romney really have?
It is only right that voters be given all the information available about a candidate. The American people deserve to know just how many First Ladies will be occupying the White House if Mitt Romney wins in November.
In all seriousness, it is obvious what the Romney campaign is trying to do by pulling out the birther smokescreen. Every day that the media gives a second of oxygen to a moronic birther like Donald Trump, they aren’t exploring all of the things that might give voters pause for concern about Mitt Romney. Because Donald Trump is the shiny object that the media can’t take their eyes off of, his role in the Romney campaign is to serve as the ultimate distraction. This is why Romney will never sever ties with Trump. Donald Trump is literally following orders.
Romney wifers have just as much evidence that Mitt Romney has multiple wives as birthers have that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States, so if the media wants to give legitimacy and airtime to birthers, the wifers must to demand the same thing.
Contact the media and demand that they give the same amount of airtime to Romney wifers as they have given to Obama birthers. America needs to know. How many wives does Mitt Romney have?
