In the tradition of George W. Bush, Mitt Romney wondered why the plane windows didn’t open when his wife’s plane had to make an emergency landing due to an electrical malfunction last week. This is the same man who schlepped his dog, Seamus, along on a family vacation on the top of their station wagon. Let me first say, I am glad no one was hurt.
Los Angeles Times: Mitt Romney said: “I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were. When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.”
Um, this is the person who aspires to be our next president. Wow. Truly something George Bush would probably have said. This is the same logic he would apply to a national security crisis in this country if he prevails in the election. Can we afford to have this man as our president?
