Sorry media… Too bad. So sad.
Mitt Romney told the lamestream media that, of course, he would be campaigning this week with Donald Trump in Las Vegas.
This comes after Donald Trump again questioned Barack Obama’s birthplace in an interview at the Daily Beast. This also comes after Breitbart.com discovered a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

Mitt Romney’s campaign stood by its decision to use Donald Trump as a top surrogate even as the reality television host continues to insist President Obama was not born in the United States.
Romney is scheduled to appear at a Las Vegas fundraiser Tuesday with Trump, who made headlines last year with his “investigation” of Mr. Obama’s birth certificate.
In an effort to put persistent questions about his background to rest, the White House in 2011 released Mr. Obama’s long-form birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii in 1961.
In a new interview, Trump pointed to a recent report that Mr. Obama’s literary agency listed him in a 1991 booklet as having been born in Kenya.
“He didn’t know he was running for president, so he told the truth,” Trump told The Daily Beast. “Now they’re saying it was a mistake. Just like his Kenyan grandmother said he was born in Kenya, and she pointed down the road to the hospital, and after people started screaming at her she said, ‘Oh, I mean Hawaii.’ Give me a break.”
A former assistant at the literary agency has said the printing was a clerical error.
Today Romney adviser Kevin Madden said the candidate disagrees with Trump, but would continue to campaign with him.
Good for Mitt.
