There he goes again. Blatantly pandering to the all-American, regular guy, blue collar owner of multi-million dollar sports teams…
Mitt Romney went to the Daytona 500 NASCAR race Sunday for what should have been a chance to show he's one of the guys. Instead, in casual conversation with an Associated Press reporter at the Florida track, he reminded people once again that he is not exactly a regular Joe.
Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."
"Yes, baby, those stars up in the sky sure are beautiful. Have I told you? I have some great friends who own some of those planets."
