For those of you who missed the hard-hitting “Parade” Magazine interview with the Romney’s this past Sunday, here is a summary:
Parade: Skim, 2% or whole?
Mitt Romney: Ann makes those decisions. And she’s just great at it.
Mitt: Waxed, mint flavored. I like smooth, minty gums.
Parade: How much did you pay in taxes in 2005?
Mitt: Well, now, let me see if I can remem… Heyyy… waaaaait a minute! You devil journalist! You almost caught me there! Very clever! I will say this though: Obama has ruined this country. So there’s that.
Parade: How will you save the economy?
Mitt: I have a five point plan to create a 29 point plan that will outline my plan to save America from Obama. We learned how to plan at Bain. We’re, planners, we are. We plan. And as soon as I’m elected, I’ll reveal those plans. I’m not giving this stuff away for free. You want the milk, you gotta buy the cow. (See answer to question #1.) We learned that at Bain too.
Parade: *sigh* Let’s get back to the questions you WILL
answer: OJ, apple or grapefruit juice with breakfast?
Mitt: OJ! And it’s not just for breakfast anymore! And Obama ruined the U.S.
Parade: Mrs. Romney – you probably spend more money on your horse in
a year than half the population of the U.S. makes in 10 years, and yet it came
in like 23rd place at the London Olympics. WTF?
Ann: Did you know my husband fixed the Olympics a decade ago and also worked at Bain? He will make a great president!
Parade: Wasn’t he also the governor of Massachusetts, where
he passed sweeping health care reform much like President Obama’s and was in
favor of a woman’s right to choose?
Ann: He SAVED the Salt Lake City games! AND – he ran Bain capital.
Parade: Right. Last question: Milk or dark chocolate?
Mitt: White chocolate, actually. You do the math.
