Rich man Mitt Romney continues to hopscotch awkwardly back and forth over the line between shameless millionaire and “unemployed” everyman with comments today that directly (intentially?!) mirror his out-of-touch line from a just two weeks ago. “I have some great friends that are NASCAR team owners,” said Romney last month when asked about the Daytona 500. Sports current events being what they are, the candidate was grilled today about Peyton Manning while on a radio show in Alabama. Gotcha.
“Well, you know I’m surprised to hear that Denver’s thinking about him, they’re — I don’t want him in our neck of the woods, lets put it that way, I don’t want him to go to Maimi or to the Jets,” said Romney, a Patriots fan. “But I’ve got a lot of good friends, the owner Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets — both owners are friends of mine.”
Most NFL teams are worth about, what, a few thousand Cadillacs?
