Who knew a Michigan birth certificate was something to crow about?
Sure, Michigan is a great place to visit, but according to Mitt Romney it’s so much more.
It’s great place to be born, entitling each lucky recipient a gen-u-ine US birth certificate, that will come in mighty handy if your citizenship’s authenticity should ever come into question.
Having A Wonderful Time in Wonderful Michigan
Who could forget Mitt Romney stumping in Michigan for the Presidential primary, digging his home-grown heels deeply into his roots as he rhapsodized about the state he left behind.
“Everything seems right here. You know, I come back to Michigan, the trees are the right height. The grass is the right color for this time of year, kind of a brownish-greenish sort of thing. It just feels right.”
Isn’t That Special
Mitt fairly swoons when it comes to recalling those pristine lakes of Michigan where one can calmly do the backstroke without a care in the world unlike those Jaws- infested murky, salty, elitist, East coast waters,
“I like seeing the lakes”, he waxes nostalgically. “There’s something very special here. The Great lakes but also all the little inland lakes that dot parts of Michigan. You know there’s something special about the lake, where you don’t get salt on you after you’ve been swimming, where there’s no seaweed, where, you don’t have to worry about things eating you in the water.”
If Mr Romney doesn’t make it as President, surely there’s a job waiting for him at the Michigan Tourist Council. His glowing speech sounded like something straight out of the copy in the featured 1946 ad featured for Michigan tourism.
“That’s the kind of fan mail that goes out of Michigan by the carload every year, ” begins the vintage ad, “….cards and letters that sing a happy song of praise for Michigan’s peerless playgrounds…the clear, blue waters of its thousands of lakes…its scenic drives and romantic trails…its spick-and-span resorts and its genial helpful hosts.”
“People really do have a wonderful time in wonderful Michigan…and keep coming back for more of the same.”
“Why don’t you plan to join them this year? “
