Talk To The Hand

The Romney campaign told Shaun Boyd, a reporter for a TV station in Denver, that she could not ask him certain questions.

“They said, you know, ‘the only stipulation is we don’t want you talking about the Akin issue,’” Boyd recalled. She also said the Romney staffer told her the campaign didn’t want questions for Romney about ‘the whole abortion controversy.’”

Boyd said she resisted.

“I said to them, ‘Look everybody’s talking about this. It’s going to seem awkward if I don’t ask about it,’” she said. “And they said, ‘Well he’s said all he’s going to say about it. He doesn’t have anything more to say, you won’t be getting any new information so we don’t want to talk about that.’”

“It was pretty clear: ‘Here’s our one stipulation,’” she recalled.

Okay, so Mitt Romney doesn’t want to talk about abortion and Todd Akin, Bain Capital, his tax returns, his investments, his term as governor of Massachusetts and his healthcare reform, immigration, marriage equality, or Seamus the Irish setter.

What does that leave us with? His vacation pictures from Europe?
