Yes, they said it. No, it didn’t make any sense. They are the co-winners of the 2012 George W. Bush Communications Award:
”I’ll introduce to you the heavyweight champion of my life.” — Mitt Romney, introducing Ann (He quickly corrected himself, saying ”I didn’t mean weight”)
”We use Ann sparingly right now so that people don’t get tired of her.” — Mitt Romney
”I get speaker’s fees from time to time, but not very much.” — Mitt Romney, who earned $374,000 in speaking fees in one year
- George Stephanopoulos: ”Is $100,000 middle income?” Mitt Romney: ”No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less.”
Fine music, like fine wine, is in the palate of the beholder.
