    A. Romney doesn't go for less than first class hotels.
    B. First class hotels are not located near freight rail traffic.

    Should be easy enough to verify the plausibility of this lame story. What specific hotel? Address? Then google map it and look for the railway that is not there.

      I'll be waiting for some intrepid journalist to check this out and get back with us.

      Chances of that happening?

      Let's just say, I won't be holding my breath.

        could probably come up with the hotel if we were interested enough. Do we at least know the city? Was it Denver? If so my bet is most all the hotels in downtown likely know exactly which hotel it was. Hell, that might be as far as one would need to go to bust their story. I used to have connections to Denver hotel people, but that's been a few years back and staff changes. I'll do a little diggin' of my own.

          there's a Politico story today that says something about the earplugs in the bathroom just for things like the 2am train that came through.  So he couldn't even find the earplugs the staff so helpfully put in every room.  And we're supposed to trust him with running the country?
