A Mitt Romney spokesperson offered an unusual counterattack Tuesday to an ad in which a laid-off steelworker blames the presumptive GOP nominee for his family losing health care: If that family had lived in Massachusetts, it would have been covered by the former governor’s universal health care law.
A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. “I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.
“We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”
Mitt Romney, telling the Wall Street Journal editorial board in 2007 how he would go about picking his cabinet as president. That comment, according to NYT, “seemed to startle the editors and left Mr. Murdoch visibly taken aback.”
“There’s no corporation in America that would have a CEO, no COO, just a CEO, with 30 direct reports.”
Running a government organized like this is, he explains, impossible. “So I would probably have super-cabinet secretaries, or at least some structure that McKinsey would guide me to put in place.” He seems to catch a note of surprise in his audience, but he presses on: “I’m not kidding, I probably would bring in McKinsey… . I would consult with the best and the brightest minds, whether it’s McKinsey, Bain, BCG or Jack Welch.”
"What about American workers who are unemployed as you import workers? Why’d you favor foreigners over Americans?"
The “questions” Daily Caller’s Neil Munro was trying to “ask” President Obama while interrupting his Rose Garden press conference on not deporting minor children born outside the US.
We’ll just put this right here, so the next time conservatives argue that Munro was just doing his journalistic duty and asked an ill-timed question, you can remind them of this, and have a fun discussion about journalism.
"It’s like the guy that walks around with an open container of cheese, you know those little string-cheese deals, in his pocket. Everyone’s walking around trying to figure out, ‘Where’s that smell coming from? You stink you stink.’ And everyone knows who stinks, they’re just trying to figure out why that individual stinks. Well, go look. But that individual’s walking around with their nose in their air like they’re all that and a bag chips. And she doesn’t realize everybody’s lookin’ at her, like, ‘Lady, you stink.’"
