Romney’s Rewrapped Gift

We’ve all done it, and Mitt seems like someone who wouldn’t hesitate to pass on a second-hand present. He did it to a voter the other day.

Asked by a New Hampshire man who was being foreclosed by Bank of America even though he had made all his mortgage payments, a problem Romney has clearly never faced, the candidate suggested he go to court or occupy bank headquarters until he gets satisfaction.

“That would get their attention,” Romney said.

Problem is, neither the Governor or his staff has been paying enough attention to the news, having missed a widely spread story of a Florida couple who did just that last summer and, accompanied by Sheriff’s deputies and movers, went with court permission to remove desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets and cash in the teller’s drawers, before the bank finally anted up what it owed them.

Oh well, never mind, it’s the thought that counts. And a Merry Christmas to all!
