Republican Truth or Dare
Is it true that Romney told people in Michigan that their trees were just the right height?
Yes, he was trying to butter them up. He also said “I love cars!” This is yet another example of Mitt’s common touch. In Ohio recently, he told a long story about going to a friend’s wedding, taking some nail polish and writing on the soles of the groom-to-be’s shoes so that when he knelt at the altar, the congregation could read HELP.
This anecdote raises several questions. A) Do you think it actually happened? And B) If you found out it was true, would that make you like Romney more, or less?
What is the right height for a tree?
Not sure, but he said it again on Friday, adding that in Michigan “the streets are just right,” too.
Then he undermined all that hard work on the carpenter-dad angle by adding that his wife drives “a couple of Cadillacs.” The man has an army of political advisers who feed him with oppo research about Rick Santorum’s earmarks, but apparently nobody suggested downplaying the second Caddy.
