Chip Off Old Block Mitt Romney Remembers 'Humorous' Time His Dad Shut Down a Plant
Doodley doodley doo, what's this? You say Mitt Romney said something perhaps a mite insensitive about Working People and how hilarious it is when they are shoved into a Detroit snowbank, their waif children cold and crying? Take it back, we will not have such slanders and libels! Our Mittens is ever wise and tender when it comes to Money and the Quiet Rooms in Which It Is Spoke.
At the outset of the call, Romney said he has some connections to Wisconsin.
“One of most humorous I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors … They had a factory in Michigan, and they had a factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and another one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,” said Romney. “And as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan and move all the production to Wisconsin. Now later he decided to run for governor of Michigan and so you can imagine that having closed the factory and moved all the production to Wisconsin was a very sensitive issue to him, for his campaign.”
That is funny!
Romney said he recalled a parade in which the school band marching with his father’s campaign only knew the Wisconsin fight song, not the Michigan song.
“So every time they would start playing ‘On, Wisconsin, On, Wisconsin,’ my dad’s political people would jump up and down and try to get them to stop, because they didn’t want people in Michigan to be reminded that my dad had moved production to Wisconsin,” said Romney, laughing.
We have absolutely no idea why people can't warm up to this jolly fellow. He jokes, he simpers, he makes love to us all! Who wants to make book on when Sir Romney will recall with a chuckle the hilarious time he saw a little girl, huddled in a doorway, her frozen fingers clutched around her last burnt-out match? Put us down for a fin on "Friday." [ JournalSentinel ]
