Tone-deaf Romney commits unforced error, says public office is just for rich folks like him
Mitt Romney skated through last night’s Republican presidential debate without suffering any major blows from his rivals. But then, this morning, he shot himself in the foot, as we see HERE:
Mitt Romney suggested in today’s debate that only rich people should run for office, and then quickly celebrated the fact that he’d forced a rival to take out a loan against his house.
Romney said his father, Michigan Governor George Romney, had told him, “Mitt, never get involved in politics if you have to win an election to pay a mortgage.”
The exchange with Newt Gingrich brought out Romney at his most tone-deaf, and echoed his offer of a $10,000 bet to Rick Perry in an earlier debate.
