Mitt Romney: “Truce! Uncle!”
Mitt Romney is asking President Obama for a “truce” that would put Romney’s Bain Capital career and his tax returns off limits during the campaign. And in return, Mitt would…oh, it doesn’t say.
That’s funny, I always thought the word “truce” meant something that, you know, went BOTH ways. Romney’s unspoken message was:
“OUCH! You’ve found my Achilles’ Heel. Please stop hitting it.”
His actual words were:
“Our campaign would be — helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon — business or family or taxes or things of that nature.”
An incomplete sentence and a run-on sentence all in one — Romney’s high school English teacher must be turning in his/her grave.
But wasn’t it nice of Mittens to agree not to attack Obama’s vulture capitalism career, his hidden tax returns or his secret bank accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands — especially since Obama doesn’t even have any of those skeletons.
