The president will put his birth certificate on a mug but waited years before releasing it to the public?

President Barack Obama's re-election campaign used a birth certificate joke by one of Mitt Romney's sons as an opportunity to fundraise.

To the chagrin of many, the microscope under the records of President Obama's birth have significantly subsided since the White House released his birth certificate this past April. If you were not already aware, the President's reelection campaign has been profiting off the controversy that resulted from Obama's dilly-dallying to release the document.

At the 2012 campaign store you can buy "Made in the USA" mugs and T-shirts, with the photo of the president's birth certificated screen-printed on the mug or shirt for all to see.

"There's really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it -- and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke," Obama's 2012 deputy campaign manager told the Chicago Sun Times when the mugs were first released.

Obamaniacs can get their own birth certificate tee for a $25 donation to Obama for America, and a $20 donation for the mug.
