Mitt Romney appears to be suffering from amnesia when questioned about anything negative from his past. He doesn’t recall bullying a gay classmate in high school or cutting the kid’s hair. Now, his memory seems to have failed him as to what he said on Sean Hannity’s radio show in February regarding Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
A superPAC put $10 million dollars of racist ads together to attack President Obama for his association with his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. During the 2008 campaign, much was made of Wright’s outspokenness. He’s a pastor of an all black church, what do you expect? Of course he’s going to be talking about issues that affect black people! White people are NEVER going to understand those issues.
Romney repudiated the ad attack only after the marketing plan was leaked to the New York Times. The document stated that the group was about to do something McCain would never let them do — use race in the campaign. That’s a low blow even for Romney.
Romney had every intention of going through with the ads. This is just another example of him folding under pressure. And this guy wants to be President of the United States?!
When asked about comments he made about Rev. Wright on the Hannity radio program, his response was: “I’m not familiar with precisely what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. I’ll go back and take a look at what was said there.”
Somebody that has to keep going back and checking what they said is a liar. People who tell the truth can repeat what they said because it’s true. They don’t have to think about which lie they told to whom.
Mitt Romney has stated during GOP debates that he would “go back and look” at things he said and did, as governor or otherwise. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing.
America really doesn’t need a President speaking to other world leaders today, making agreements then going back next week and responding with “I’ll go back and look at what I said last week, but I don’t think I agreed to that, did I?”
