Today’s outrage: Romney looking forward to more vacations in … France

posted at 3:24 pm on April 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

Alternate headline: “Confirmed: He’s a RINO.”

No, I kid. Romney’s fondness for France is, I think, already common knowledge among righty activists thanks to Newt running one of the dumbest attack ads of the primaries against him back in January. It’s not purely academic either: He spent two and a half years there in his early 20s on his LDS mission and evidently liked it enough that he’s willing to give this answer even now, despite the fact that “French” has always been a byword for elitism in some parts of America. Kind of nice to see him being unabashedly honest, the political consequences be damned. The lefties at HuffPo and Daily Kos have seized on the clip as evidence of hypocrisy because Romney once criticized The One for taking “elaborate vacations” as president, but watch and you’ll see that that’s a red herring. Romney never says he wants an “elaborate” vacation (unless all French getaways are inherently elaborate) and he never says he’d take vacation there during his presidency. What this is about is clear enough from this aside in ABC’s write-up:

“The best memories were with my wife on vacations from time to time in France,” said Romney, who has been criticized for being “out of touch” and has made several comments that have highlighted his wealth during his campaign.

Just the ol’ “France = elitism” charge coopted for the Democrats’ messaging about Romney’s wealth. (In the dKos post, he’s referred to at one point as “Mr. Car Elevator.”) The GOP had fun using John Kerry’s Frenchiness against him eight years ago, but anti-French sentiment was much higher then because of their opposition to the war. If Romney had to run in an age of “freedom fries,” would he have given this same answer?

Americans agree, looking forward to more vacations themselves.

Or a vacation.

Fortunately, people who read the AP and Rueters are blissfully unaware of Obama’s vacation status.

Nethicus on April 23, 2012 at 3:27 PM

If Obama said the same thing, they would praise him for being a romantic, a good husband, and a loving father. After all, what woman wouldn’t want a romantic vacation involving strolling through the streets of Paris?

Some 13 of its polls missed by 10 or more points, including one in the Hawaii Senate race that missed the final margin between the candidates by 40 points, the largest error ever recorded in a general election in FiveThirtyEight’s database, which includes all polls conducted since 1998.

There’s nothing wrong with liking the scenery and culture of another country, as in Romney’s case. There is something really wrong though with a president that goes to other countries to apologize for America, to bow to their leaders, and insinuate that if the commies give him more space he’ll be more flexible in his efforts to destroy the country that elected him.

Wolfmoon on April 23, 2012 at 3:40 PM

There is more truth to this than you realize, Allah.

Have you ever spent an extended time in France? It is arguably the most socialist in Europe, which is saying a lot.

I have yet to met a single true conservative who “enjoys” spending time in France. I’ve been there many times for business, and hated every second of it.

Not like Obama or Gingrich can really talk here…

Gingrich took time off during the primary season to go on a Greek cruise with his wife while Obama and his wife have racked up some serious frequent-flier miles on AF1.

And, as pointed out above, Romney’s not asking the taxpayer to foot the bill for his vacations like Barry is.

Another hijacked thread.

He’s fishing for you people, and you’re biting.

He’s laughing at you.

OhEssYouCowboys on April 23, 2012 at 3:54 PM

Not necessarily. I’d argue he’s being baited into a banning. He’s already playing the race card against other posters on here.

Sounds good to America right now, you know, after 4 years of fail by a near millionare, dog eating, privalaged, elitist, lazy black man who never worked a day in his life.

You just can’t help yourselves.

BTW, France really sucked, but is moving right quickly as the disasterous consequences of decades of failed, socialist, Obamaesque policies become clear. It a French awakening.

Second look at France?

You might wanna check in on the recent election news there…

Seriously — there’s more to life than politics.

Prufrock on April 23, 2012 at 3:55 PM

Yeah. Like rioting “urban immigrant youths” torching cars and looting businesses. Unfortunately, politics tends to wander back into your life when you live in a country that does not take threats seriously.

I think the Romney campaign is baiting the Obama campaign. Mention “French vacations,” knowing it’ll get the loony left all in a lather cuz he’s Richie Rich, and then we get to talk about…vacations! Expensive vacations! Uh-oh…

McWillard could live in a 100K sq ft house in France every day for all I care. Just don’t pretend he’s not a near billionaire aloof Wall St executive who has zero understanding of the average person’s needs.

Unlike Teh Won, he seems to understand that the average person needs a job, and he knows how to create them.

sheikh of thornton on April 23, 2012 at 3:57 PM

You guys are hilalrious. Last week McWillard was up by 2% in Gallup’s poll, the election was as good as over. Now he’s down 3% and it’s back to the old excuses of how polls are biased or it’s too early to worry about polls or -3% = tie.

angryed on April 23, 2012 at 3:36 PM

Yeah, this was the first or second daily poll from Gallup that showed Obama slightly ahead but basically within the MOE, causing you to ejaculate over a thread that had nothing to do with polling.

Rasmussen also has Obama’s daily approval rating down from -13 yesterday to -19 today. The polls are close, moron. And it’s April.
