No, I’m not kidding.
What the fuck is wrong with this dude?
“I was born and raised here. I love being in Michigan”, Mr. Romney said. “Everything seems right here. You know, I come back to Michigan; the trees are the right height. The grass is the right color for this time of year, kind of a brownish-greenish sort of thing. It just feels right.”
“I like seeing the lakes. I love the lakes. There’s something very special here. The Great Lakes, but also all the little inland lakes that dot the parts of Michigan.”
“You know, we’ve been to Massachusetts. I love the ocean, too, I do love the ocean, but there’s something special about lakes, where you don’t get salt on you after you’ve been swimming, where there’s no seaweed, where you don’t have to worry about things eating you in the water.”
“I grew up totally in love with cars,” he said. “It used to be in the 50s and 60s, if you showed me one square foot of almost any part of a car I could tell you what brand it was, the model and so forth. Now with all the Japanese cars I’m not so good at it, but I still know the American cars pretty well.”
Mr. Romney told the crowd that he drives a Mustang.
“I love American cars, and long may they rule the world,” he said. “Let me tell you, I want them to do well.”
I understand that all politicians pander to some degree or another, but this is just insane.
