After Mitt Romney's birth certificate joke at a Michigan campaign rally Friday led to outrage from the Obama campaign, a top RNC official told MSNBC he doesn't see what the big deal is.
"Look, it's -- I mean, it's a light-hearted moment," Sean Spicer, RNC communications director, said. "He was stating a fact. He's proud of the fact he was born in Michigan, that Mrs. Romney was born in the area."
Spicer accused the Obama campaign of hypocrisy.
"I found it somewhat laughable that these guys who have taken gutter politics to a new low, if you can do that, are suddenly feigning outrage about this kind of comment," Spicer said.
Romney "made a light-hearted moment, nothing more than that," Spicer said.
