Mitt Romney Loves France!
Remember back in the summer of 2004 when Republicans painted John Kerry as French?
And remember March 11, 2003 when Republican Representatives Robert W. Ney (R-Ohio) and Walter B. Jones, Jr. (R-North Carolina), “declared that all references to French fries and French toast on the menus of the restaurants and snack bars run by the House of Representatives would be removed?
Fast forward to today and we have this from Mitt Romney:
White House hopeful Mitt Romney got a bit wistful Monday while on the campaign trail as he recalled time spent with his wife in “magnificent” Paris, where he hopes to enjoy more vacation time.
Romney, the all-but-certain Republican nominee to face President Barack Obama in November’s election, spent two years as a Mormon missionary in France in the 1960s and gushed about his time in the country.
“I think the best memories were with my wife on vacations from time to time in France,” he told reporters before a town hall event in Aston, Pennsylvania.
“The last vacation we had there walking around the city of Paris and walking not just the Champs-Elysees but also over to the Jardin of Luxembourg and around the city,” he went on.
“It’s one of the most magnificent cities in the world and I look forward to occasional vacations again; it’s such a beautiful place.”
My hand is cupped around my ear. I’m waiting for the uproar from Republicans.
