Obama to Leno: Issue with Trump, “Dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya.” Obama made an appearance on “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

Obama the resident comedian replied,

We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.”

Mitt Romney jokes at Obama, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate” at a rally of 7,000 in Commerce, Michigan.

Romney told supporters that he and Ann had been born at nearby hospitals.

No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

No, no, not a swipe,. I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor, you know — we’ve got to have a little humor in a campaign.”

Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt quickly denounced the remark,

embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them.”

Obama for America calling for Mitt Romney to a traditional act of transparency. Really,  where is the birth certificate and the college and Harvard records that Obama has sealed? What is up with that Mr. President? I do not want to see Romney’s tax returns. I want to view Obama’s REAL Birth Certificate and college transcripts.  What do you mean the GOP did not properly vet this man. How did Obama get vetted? I have been asking that question for four years.

Obama for America distorted view of the GOP 2012 election, funny video!

Friend —

Friday morning, I sent a letter to Mitt Romney’s campaign manager, asking that Romney release just five years of tax returns. And I made a commitment that, if he does, this campaign would not demand more.

You should add your name. Here’s why:

Right now, our opponent is proposing a $2,000 tax increase on middle-class families with kids in order to pay for tax breaks for millionaires like him.

He’s asking Americans to put him in charge of their taxes, while refusing to come clean about his own.

This isn’t going away because voters deserve better, and everyone but the Romney campaign seems to recognize that.

Call for Mitt Romney to join President Obama in this basic and traditional act of transparency: Add your name.

Romney’s refusal to release his returns is raising more questions than he’s been willing to answer.

According to the one full year of returns he has released, Romney paid 13.9% in taxes on his income. Thursday, he said he went back and looked, and has never paid less than 13% over the last ten years.

Now we’re asking him to put his money where his mouth is.

It is absolutely relevant for us to ask how much a presidential candidate paid in taxes, if he sheltered his money or tried to get out of paying taxes at all, why he started — and continues to own — a corporation offshore in Bermuda, why he keeps his finances offshore in the Cayman Islands, and why he opened a Swiss bank account.

In refusing to be transparent about it, he’s not only breaking the trust he’s asking voters to place in him, but also three decades of precedent that began with his own father’s presidential campaign in 1968.

This issue isn’t going away, and for good reason. Tell Romney to follow 30 years of precedent and release his tax returns:
