It generally astounds me that for someone who actually is an intelligent person, Mitt Romney keeps saying the dumbest things.
And at one point, Mr. Finebaum asked Mr. Romney, as a New England Patriots fan, where he thought Peyton Manning should go as a free agent, and the candidate highlighted his friendship with football team owners — echoing comments in which he explained his affinity for Nascar by noting he knew the owners of Nascar teams.
“I’m surprised to hear that Denver’s thinking about him,” Mr. Romney said. “I don’t want him in our neck of the woods, let’s put it that way.”
“I’ve got a lot of good friends, the owner of the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets, both owners are friends of mine,” [emphasis mine] he added. “But let’s keep him away from New England.”
Has there ever been a presidential candidate (okay, I’m sure there has, just not in my lifetime) more removed from the experience of the average American?
