(Newser) – Apparently Mitt Romney isn't the only presidential candidate who likes to make a birther crack, because President Obama chimed in with his own yesterday. While at a campaign stop in Orlando, Obama was told a 6-year-old boy at the table was born in Hawaii. "You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?," joked Obama, reports the Hill. Obama's campaign was considerably less amused over Romney's August comment, saying the country didn't need a "birther-in-chief." (Read more birther stories.)
