Mitt Romney mocked for plane gaff

44 posts in this topic

“I appreciate the fact that she (his wife) is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were. When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”

Maybe he ought to open a window aboard a plane, at 35,000 feet. His head obviously needs a good vacuuming out. :w00t:

Obama's gaffes are legendary! The maout that first debate? Wow How abn isn't allowed off prompter any longer and when he is it is a practiced speech! Even then he screws it up. How about that first debate? Did you wunderkind like that? Tuesday will be great and Wednesday even better. Enjoy your week.

Romney seems a bit off his rocker to me. ... and just out of curiosity.. why does he walk so oddly, as if he's holding something between his thighs? Watch him! ( as long as this opportunity has arisen to make fun of him )

"Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain...administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change." --Amman, Jordan, July 22, 2008

"The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred in our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."

Nice ones Merc.

Yeah, I don't think any Obama supporters want to get into a Gaff war between the candidates. If we do though, can we throw Biden into the mix too?

There are so many Obama gaffes that it is, frankly, embarrassing. Worse, some of his gaffes are downright scary and show the true inner Barry which isn't pretty. His recent urging to people booing Romney's name to not boo, but that "voting is the best revenge." Revenge for what and against who? It is against the truly successful whom Barry believes stole their money from the poor, although how that works I don't know. Then there is the now infamous "You didn't build that!" gaffe that cost him so dearly in the polls.
