Romney: “Of course I’ll win, I’m the white guy”. Really?

Deborah 2012/05/27 14:35:24
He will win because he's the white guy
Yes, being an idiot has nothing to do with it
Romney's in for a rude awakening
If this is the only choice, NEVER
It's going to be Obama all the way.

What could have been a game changing moment in Mitt Romney’s campaign turned into a horrendous gaffe Tuesday afternoon when the former governor was having lunch with a few of his supporters. Romney was hoping to show America how well he relates to the average working American by having a press recorded lunch at a local pancake house in rural Kentucky where the primary elections were taking place. However, what turned from a nice preplanned lunch with “common-folk conversation” ended up getting off track when one of Romney’s supporters asked him how he was so certain he would win. Romney turned to the man seated on his left and seemingly forgetting the ten plus reporters in the room said, “Well between you and me, we have to think about the reality of the situation. Obama is a popular guy and his supporters are hell-bent in getting him reelected. There is one thing that his campaign seems to keep forgetting over and over, and that is how many Americans can’t stand the guy for an obvious reason. Of course I’ll win, I’m the white guy.”

The Romney supporter looked at Romney with a look of agreement yet bewilderment. The chatter within the room got quite loud as reporters grabbed at their phones and took rapid notes. It’s not every day that a candidate is so brutally honest with his supporters.

One of Romney’s aides quickly tapped the former governor on the shoulder and whispered something into his ear. Romney’s face had a stone cold expression that can only be described as terrified. After talking with his aide for a minute or so, Romney turned back to the table and smiled saying, “It’s a good thing we all know how to take a joke here, huh? Of course the reason that I know I’m going to win in because I’m the guy that will stand up for true conservative values and economic prosperity. Which of course is what the American people will want come November.
After Romney finished speaking he stood up from the table and was ushered outside to a waiting car. In hopes that he was able to successfully spin his verbal gaffe, Romney made sure to get a spot on Fox News’ Hannity as soon as possible to further clear up any “liberal spin” that may occur.

Only time will tell if he can recover from this clear opinion of his true beliefs in why he thinks he will win this upcoming November.http://www.freewoodpost.com/2012/05/22/romney-of-course-ill-w...Romney  u201COf course I u2019ll win I u2019m the white guy u201D Really

    You are aware that this was a satire piece correct? This never even happened. Free wood post does satire pieces.

    Sigh, some people should not be allowed to surf satirical sites such as the onion and free wood posts.

    Anybody who votes for Romney is either a deluded fool, or very rich. The guy has already gone on the record, making public statements about what his intentions are for America. He dislikes the middle class and has total disdain for the poor. He's going to squeeze the American people for every cent they have, in favor of big business. Expect a de facto tax increase from this guy.

    My 401K is worth more now than when Bush left. Just for one example, but I could go on if you like. Robmey is it for Robmey! Period. Even if it wasn't a real story, there are PLENTY of real gaffs where the campaign has had to come back with "what Mr. Robmey meant to say was..." So I would doubt this at all. He is a joke.

    Exactly! When too many believe it, it turns satire into sadness... and horror.
