Campaigning today in his home state of Michigan, Mitt Romney stepped into the birther controversy, telling a crowd he's never been asked where he was born.
"I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born," Romney said, according to the Washington Post.
"Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital, I was born in Harper Hospital. No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate; they know that this is the place where we born and raised," he said.
The Obama campaign responded with outrage, accusing Romney of embracing "the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them.
"It's one thing to give the stage in Tampa to Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio, and Kris Kobach," Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt said. "But Governor Romney's decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America."
