That may actually be inaccurate since, to our knowledge, “sticking your feet in your mouth” usually refers to saying something that you didn’t actually mean. But we suppose that it could equally apply to saying something that you’d rather have kept people from knowing that you do actually mean.
Romney expanded on that thought on Monday, again from New Hampshire:
“The people of New Hampshire have waited long enough. They want to see good jobs. They want to see rising incomes. They want to see an economy that’s growing again, and the president’s failed. He did not cause this recession, but he made it worse.”
Wait! What? Mittens actually, accidentally we’re sure, said something that might be called “uncivil” (by virtue of being true) by the Establishment RINOglicans?
Don’t worry though. The Spineless Surrender Socialist Monkey of Taxachusetts soon realized his unforgivable faux pas in saying something critical about the politician that he claims to be wanting to run against:
But on Thursday, when questioned by an NBC producer why he believes the Obama polices have hurt the America’s financial recovery, Romney did some back-tracking.
“I didn’t say that things are worse,” Romney said, speaking in front of the boarded-up Allentown Metal Works, a steel plant Obama once highlighted as benefiting from the stimulus.
That’s more like the cock-fluffing butt-snorkeling RINO we’ve come to loathe and detest.
Mittens, at some point you’re going to have to let us know:
Are you gunning for Joe Biden’s or Jay Carney’s job?
UPDATE: LC Patton points out that this may not be all that it seems, more like the kind of media malpractice that we’ve all grown accustomed to. Ace explains it all at his site, but here’s the summary: In the first quote Mittens is speaking about the economy in general as in “in an alternate universe where Ogabe didn’t exist, the Recession wouldn’t have been as bad as Ogabe’s policies made a bad situation worse than it needed to be” and in the second quote, Mittens is replying to a reporter playing “gotcha” by asking him if he’s really saying that today’s unemployment rate is and GDP growth are worse than earlier in Ogabe’s presidency which, depending on which date you pick, would be not true. The important thing here being that the two quotes aren’t speaking about the same thing.
Personally, given Mittens’ history of bravely running away, away every time he’s confronted with the possibility of making the MFM and liberals (but we repeat ourself) mad at him, we’re not sure how much slack we’re willing to cut him, but the explanation above most certainly does make a good point, so we’d be much amiss not to present it. Only fair, after all.
