“Because when you give a speech, you don’t give a laundry list. You talk about the things that you think are important.”
– Mitt Romney, in response to a question from Fox News’ Bret Baier on why he didn’t mention the troops in his August 30 convention speech.
Romney may be in a statistical tie with President Obama among likely voters, but he’s already won the ‘Asshole of the Year’ contest as far as I’m concerned. Note to Romney: our troops aren’t a laundry list! They’re flesh and blood human beings who have sacrificed more than you’ll ever know; just so you and your trophy wife can build a house with an elevator for your Cadillacs. But, I guess we should expect as much from a draft dodger in the same mold as George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
