From the Washington Post:
A day after threatening to withhold his vote, Sen. Mitt Romney signaled Friday that he will support a Republican effort to obtain documents and testimony relating to work done in Ukraine by the son of former vice president Joe Biden.
Romney (R-Utah) will vote for issuing a subpoena in the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee next week after receiving assurances from the panel’s chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), “that any interview of the witness would occur in a closed setting without a hearing or public spectacle,” Romney spokeswoman Liz Johnson said in a statement.
“No spectacle” my sweet patootie. The spectacle is the whole point of this.
From The Hill:
“You can’t forget that Hillary Clinton is a player as well, and she’s an awful candidate. People don’t trust her, they don’t like in my view she comes across as not being at all authentic. I don’t understand why it is she can’t be what I had expected her to be, which is Angela Merkel or Kathleen Sebelius,” Romney said.
“These are serious women leaders who don’t go into an audience and put their arms up in the air and make a big guffaw kind of smile. It’s almost like she’s acting like she’s Bill Clinton and she’s not Bill Clinton. Nonetheless, it doesn’t come across well.”
Do tell, Mitt.
I’m sure you have binders full of women who know how to act the way you “expect” them to. Maybe only men are allowed to guffaw, or laugh in that thoroughly “authentic” way you always do: “HA. HA. HA.”
Here’s a great quote from Alexandra Petri of the Washington Post about Mitt Romney’s new role of “attack dog” in last night’s Republican
“A very pugnacious Mitt Romney is somewhat like a very disgruntled housecat. It can’t do too much damage before it gets skittish. It might break a vase, but that is about it, and it will injure itself more than the decor.”
