President Obama, speaking at a fundraising event Tuesday in Boston, made light of the "birther" conspiracy debate about whether he was really born in Hawaii.
I think there's nothing -- there's no weakness in us trying to reach out and seeing if we can find common ground. Now, there are going to be times where we can't. I was born in Hawaii, what can I say? I mean, I just... I can't change those facts.
The comment provoked laughter from the Democratic audience.
