Taegan Goddard asks a very good question. Joan Vennochi notes that no one has ever seen the birth certificate of Willard Milton “Mitt” Romney.

His first name is “Willard,’’ after the hotel magnate J. Willard Marriott, his father’s best friend.

His middle name comes from his father’s cousin, who played quarterback for the Chicago Bears from 1925 to 1929. That cousin’s name was “Milton’’ and his nickname was “Mitt’’ — a totally understandable preference for a football player or a presidential candidate. But what does the birth certificate belonging to the presidential candidate actually state?

Four years ago, I asked Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom to settle the matter.

“It’s Willard Mitt Romney on the birth certificate,’’ he replied, via e-mail.

Could I see it? I asked. “Sure. He was born in Detroit. City Hall should have it,’’ he e-mailed back.

Birth records are restricted in Michigan and only a person or parent named on the record, or a legal guardian or representative can request a copy. “That shouldn’t be a problem for an old reporter like you,’’ Fehrnstrom responded. It was.

Josh Green is duly outraged.

It turns out that we don’t even know Mitt Romney’s real name! And Romney’s spokesman bobs and weaves like Muhammad Ali to avoid telling the truth and exposing this conspiracy!

And, as Green points out, Romney spent time in France as a young man. It would appear, then that Romney does not have the total American experience. HE LIVED IN A SOCIALIST COUNTRY FOR CHRISSAKES! For all we know he may even enjoy a helping of freedom fries!  Donald Trump, where are you?
