A Romney son stands in front of a crowd to tell a joke:
"I don't know if you guys saw the debate last week,” Josh Romney said, as the crowd cheered and applauded. “I take a lot of pride in that, because — I don't know if you noticed, but I was — me and my brothers were responsible for my dad doing so well. We were the ones, as kids, that kept saying the same thing over and over. And we'd say the same lie over and over. And my dad learned then, not to believe it. While we didn't go to any of the formal debate preparation, we did the real hard stuff.(Emphasis mine)
"So as a father, he learned how to debate an obstinate child. We had a lot of fun, we had a lot of fun watching the debate."
So the Romney's think that the way to talk about the President of the United States, the first African American President, is to compare him to an obstinate child. Because, you know, children, especially obstinate ones, just have to learn their place. Just like all of those minorities and women.
As Tom Levenson said at Balloon Juice: "I believe the word you're looking for is 'boy'."
