Quote
"Well, you know Iím surprised to hear that Denverís thinking about him, theyíre -- I donít want him in our neck of the woods to Miami or to the Jets," Romney said. "But Iíve got a lot of good friends, the owner Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets ó both owners are friends of mine. But letís keep him away from New England, so Tom Brady has a better chance of picking up a championship."

Stretch the truth, say you don't follow sports closely but you have friends who do. If that's too difficult, just avoid the subject.

^ This.

Seriously. It's amazing how something this obvious eludes Mittbot. You and Torie need to apply to manage the Romney campaign ASAP.

This is why CEOs make sh**ty presidents.

Not because they'd be bad at the job, they just lack any sort of reasonable context.

That said, most politicians are worse, for far more nefarious reasons.

BREAKING NEWS: Mitt Romney lynched by unemployed satirists.

"It is the essence of a true democracy that people should be respected individually, not simply collectively. It is also of the essence of a democracy that differences and distinctions are recognised and, where relevant, honoured. A democracy should be above all a thoughtful type of society, in these and other respects."

When you spend your whole life building up wealth and connections mainly for the benefit of being able to brag about it to your other wealthy friends, it's kinda hard to go cold turkey.

Romney has to constantly remind us that he's not just the 1%, but the 1% of the 1%.

There's nothing wrong with having friends in high places.

I'm sure Barack had many before he became President, and has a lot more now.
