Romney: No one's asked to see my birth certificate

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has raised the discredited rumor that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is thus ineligible to be president.
Romney joked at a Michigan rally on Friday that he had been born in a nearby hospital and that "no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate."
Obama has been dogged throughout his presidency by questions about his birthplace and his Kenyan father. He released a long-form copy of his birth certificate last year, showing he was born in Hawaii in 1961.
Romney grew up in Michigan, and his father, George Romney was a popular governor of the state.
