Add two more items to the very, very long list of things you can't ask Mitt Romney about: abortion and Todd Akin. A reporter in a Denver CBS affiliate KCNC says the Romney campaign stipulated those two topics are off the table if you wanted to chat the candidate up.
I mean, geez, it's not like the GOP has spent all their political capital, nationally and locally on attempting to regulate women's lady parts since seizing power in the midterms. It's not like Romney is the leader of a party that wants to rewrite the Constitution to outlaw abortion under all circumstances forever. Why should candidate Romney be expected to tell 50% of the voting population what his intentions are relative to their lady parts?
Yeah. What this guy said:
"And if you just wanted to ask him about how awesome freedom is, we'd be fine with that."— Adam Smith (@asmith83) August 23, 2012
Romneyland really just doesn't get the idea of the Fourth Estate do they?
But is it possible America remembering what that was like? (This docile affiliate notwithstanding.)
