Romney on NASCAR: I don’t follow it closely but I have some friends who own NASCAR teams

posted at 4:50 pm on February 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

No foolin’: The more I write about these populist blind spots of his, the more I find them goofily endearing. What’s the big knock on Romney? That he’s an overly scripted phony who’ll say anything to get elected, right? Well, rest assured: No one would script this line. This is the real Mitt, doing his awkward best to relate. Not in a snobby way either — I think the class divide implicit in his answer utterly escapes him. He’s just trying to connect with NASCAR fans and this is the best he can do. I almost want to tousle his hair and say, “Good effort!”

Think we can convince every independent in America to share my view?

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.”

Democrats and liberals quickly ridiculed the remark on Twitter. “I don’t know people who fish but I know people who own yachts,” tweeted Brad Woodhouse, communications director of the Democratic National Committee. Ari Melber, a writer for the liberal Nation magazine who apparently was watching the Oscars, tweeted: “Do I like movies? Well I have some friends who own movie companies.”…

For Romney, it was just his world and his friends. For Democrats, it was a political opportunity. “This is just the latest example of how out of touch Mitt Romney is from the average American experience. From an economic plan that provides tax cuts to line the pockets of his friends — like those who own NASCAR teams — to wanting Wall Street to write its own rules, Mitt Romney just doesn’t get it and won’t work to restore economic security for the middle class,” said DNC press secretary Melanie Roussell.

Sounds like something Mr. Howell might say to Gilligan. And hey, everyone loved Mr. Howell. Optimism.

The punchline, of course, is that despite the left’s theatrical mirth about Mitt being out of touch, he’ll almost certainly beat Obama easily among NASCAR fans in the fall. Watch the clip, then restore your equilibrium by reading this BuzzFeed piece about Romney’s heroism nine years ago when he and his sons heard a family screaming for help on Lake Winnipesaukee. Whatever else you think of Mitt, he’s awfully good during a personal crisis.

I don’t mind him being humble about his wealth, or overly flaunting it al la Kennedy or Kerry.

But don’t be ashamed about making it: As far as anyone can say, you didn’t make it illegally, you weren’t a bootlegger, betting against the British Pound Sterling, nor did you sell slaves…Why must you act as if YOUR finances are then issue?

Ironically, he would come off MORE as a “average Joe” by just briefly touching upon what he did to work to earn that money, and then leave it at that.

During another moment while campaigning at the racetrack — where thunderstorms had delayed the sport’s biggest day — Romney seemed to mock the plastic ponchos worn by a group of fans.

Where he appointed SC Justices that forced Gay Marriage and appointed an entire board that forced insurance companies to cover Abortions with little or no co-pay.

But hey let’s forget all that because he came to the rescue of a person in need. I’m sorry but I am not impressed by a Politician pandering off something they did for someone. I wonder if they only did it for political gain.

As I said in the headline thread, he could have said he has friends in the business. He gave dems another sound bite.

Lightswitch on February 27, 2012 at 5:16 PM

the more I find them goofily endearing.

Being an atheist, I wonder if you understand what Romney’s life is like? I’ll try to explain….

Devote Mormons don’t have a lot of time beyond what they do to practice their faith and strengthen their family. Here is a basic rundown of a week in the life of the typical LDS person……

Sunday…3 hours of worship. If you have a calling, another hour for a organizational meeting. The time getting the kids ready. On Sunday there is no TV, no shopping, etc. You visit family, the sick, etc.

Monday night…Family Home Evening. The entire family gathers for an hour or so. There is lesson, song, spiritual thought, treat, prayers, and clean up. The entire family is involved taking turns week to week on each item.

Tuesday night….auxiliary meeting. 1 hour.

Wednesday….Youth night.

Thursday….free night!! YEAH!

Friday….Ward Party, etc.

Saturday night….free night!

The LDS are very involved with the family. Therefore many activities need to be appropriate for the entire family. Hunting, NASCAR, etc are not activities the entire family can enjoy together. Any Sunday TV sports are not part of Sunday activities. (as always there are many exceptions, but the commitment to family is the main focus)

So the fact that Romney doesn’t connect with regular folks has more to do with his family and faith commitments than it does his money. This is why his family shines in private settings and seems disconnected when it comes to relating to those of us who do not have the same belief system.

csdeven on February 27, 2012 at 5:17 PM

The problem with Romney is not his wealth, it is his disconnect with average Americans because he has lived his life in a very affluent bubble.

And what is with “the trees are all the right height”? Is this a code for something? Very strange.

slickwillie2001 on February 27, 2012 at 5:07 PM

Cost cutting: You mean cut federal spending? There’s 535 people who already get paid to do that. But I jest.

getting rid of unproductive or poorly run operations: Like the TSA and EPA? Don’t hold your breath.

selling off properties: Sell what to who? Guam to China? How about California to Mexico?

cutting headcount: Sorry, Mitt can’t lay off American citizens to improve the ratios. That, or start a gigantic war with huge casualties. Thats one way to cut “labor expenses”. Kill the laborers.

At least Moochele actually WENT to a NASCAR race once. And she looked so genuine and comfortable too! Now about Barry, I dunno… somehow it doesn’t fit the President Solar/Wind/PixieDust/UnicornGas image.

So to be a Conservative you have to follow NASCAR?I guess that leaves me out then.

How many Americans can afford that boat?

Millions of Americans own ski boats… Who cares if his cost a little more than average?

Water skiing is a VERY average sport in middle America.

Last time I checked he doesn’t own a yacht or a private jet or an island in the Carribean…
