Mitt Romney Appreciates Cloud

On the trail yesterday, Mitt Romney came up with an interesting answer to a question about his campaign strategy:

As Romney walked back to the plane to shake hands with the five individuals who drove vans in the motorcade, your pooler asked Romney if he was going to be campaigning a little harder from here on out.

 "Ha ha. We’re in the stretch aren’t we? Look at those clouds. It’s beautiful,” he said, pointing to the sky. “Look at those things.”

While the clouds in question (see above) are indeed quite nice-looking, saying, "Look at those clouds. It's beautiful," for absolutely no reason kind of sounds like something a dying person does. Usually people who say, "Look at those clouds. It's beautiful," out of the blue follow up with, "I never really appreciated them before. I never appreciated any of it," and then break down crying.
