Mitt Romney’s Car Talk

Speaking of tone deaf…. Via Kos:

“I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pick-up truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually. And I used to have a Dodge truck. So I used to have all three covered.”

Ah yes, who doesn’t have multiple cars to play with? Who doesn’t use a 20-sided die every morning to decide which car to pull from the stable? Is it an SUV day, or a convertible day, or a two-seater roadster day, or a muscle car day? You know what I’m talking about, right? Right?

Wait, you mean Americans don’t typically have multiple Cadillacs in their garage? Uh oh. Time for some quick damage control!

The Romney campaign later said Ann Romney drives two Cadillac SRX’s (model years 2007 and 2010), one in California and one in Massachusetts.

It’s not that Mitt Romney is rich. We all knew that. It’s that he just doesn’t know that talking about it on TV like you’re hanging out at the Palm Beach Bath Club while you’re trying to win an election in a country just climbing out of the worst recession in recent memory (and caused by the last Republican president) might not be such a great idea.
