On Friday, in a move aimed at solidifying his American-made bona fides in the heart of domestic auto manufacturing country, GOP candidate Mitt Romney told a crowd that his wife “drives a couple of Cadillacs.” Yep, here’s a man with his finger on the pulse of the working class.
Earlier today, EveryMitt struck again – this time south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Romney: I have friends who own NASCAR teams
Mitt Romney went to the Daytona 500 NASCAR race Sunday for what should have been a chance to show he’s one of the guys. Instead, in casual conversation with an Associated Press reporter at the Florida track, he reminded people once again that he is not exactly a regular Joe.
Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, “Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners.” (Full story…)
I swear, folks, Romney is more like an SNL skit about a presidential candidate than he is an actual candidate, the only difference being that the real Mitt is funny.
So stay tuned. The Man of the People® Tour 2012 rolls on across this great land of ours, glad-handing and baby-kissing and generally just kicking it with all the other regular joes. With any luck, his next stop will be in one of our nation’s predominately African-American neighborhoods. I cannot wait to hear the presumptive nominee talking about how much black people love him…..
UPDATE: Oh, wait – commenter JJ below is right, isn’t he?
So I guess next on the list is Mexican-Americans, followed by Asians. I wonder if he’ll do his Hop-Sing impression? That kills at the family reunion….
