Maybe This Is Why Mitt Romney Hates Rafalca

"Your stupid horse is ruining my campaign."

According to ABC News, Rafalca and his dumb horse ballet could potentially delay Mitt Romney’s running-mate announcement. Rafalca is competing on August 2 and 3 and, if he does well, could compete again on August 8 and 9, thus potentially keeping Ann Romney overseas until then.


The candidate is unlikely to announce his running mate — unarguably one of the most important moments of his campaign — without his wife, whom he often refers to as his “sweetheart,” by his side.
