Josh Romney, one of Mitt Romney's sons, told a pointed joke Tuesday about President Obama's debate performance, while warming up the crowd for his father at a campaign rally in Van Meter, Iowa.
"I don't know if you guys saw the debate last week," Josh Romney said, as the crowd cheered and applauded. "I take a lot of pride in that, because — I don't know if you noticed, but I was — me and my brothers were responsible for my dad doing so well. We were the ones, as kids, that kept saying the same thing over and over. And we'd say the same lie over and over. And my dad learned then, not to believe it. While we didn't go to any of the formal debate preparation, we did the real hard stuff.
"So as a father, he learned how to debate an obstinate child. We had a lot of fun, we had a lot of fun watching the debate."
That's some funny stuff. Team Romney certainly is feeling their oats this week. Perhaps one should best avoid referring to the President as a child, just a parenting tip there. Imani over at ABLC has some words for Josh, too.
None of them are kind, either.
Hey Josh — Your dear pappy’s own party knows that he’s lying and flip flopping all over the place like a fish out of water, so you might want to stop cracking stupid ass jokes and tell your dad to find a position and stick with it.
Like I said, the sense of entitlement coming off the entire Romney clan, the feeling of "Why haven't you yokels awarded us the White House already?" is pretty nauseating. And yet, this is what Mitt the father has taught Josh the son.
Mitt will make a heck of a President, right?
