HEADLINE – Romney debate gaff threatens candidacy

DES MOINES, Iowa –  In the latest republican candidate debate, Mitt Romney made a statement that now threatens to derail his presidential campaign.

“People of Iowa,” Romney said, “Black people – you hate them, I hate them.”

.

.

“What did he say?” debate moderator Diane Sawyer asked George Stephanopoulos.

.

.

“I think he said he hates black people,” Stephanopoulos responded.

.

.

Romney campaign officials were quick to correct any misinterpretation of Romney’s statement.

.

.

“What Mitt meant to say is that President Obama is responsible for our nation’s economic problems and that Mitt, as a businessman, is best suited to solve those problems,” said Biff Hendric, Romney’s Iowa public relations director.

“That’s not what I heard him say,” said  Sawyer.

“Yeah, well, I’ll bet you $10,000 that that’s what he meant,” Hendric challenged.

Other Romney spokespersons emphasized that Romney would be spending substantial time and financial resources to campaign in “the great white state of Iowa” in his quest to “keep America American,” a phrase used by the Ku Klux Klan and the anti-immigrant party known as the “Know-nothings.”

Bend over, America!

  2. Plus Romney is against moon colonies – when Romney was asked to explain what sets him apart from Newt — and of course, he started with something highly relevant to the average voter:

    “We could start with his (Newt Gingrich’s) idea to have a lunar colony that would mine minerals from the moon. I’m not in favour of spending that kind of money to do that.”
