Having seen this, methinks the article is taking some, shall we say, liberties.
I never got the impression Romney was dissing Palin on the show. I got the feeling he was off-handedly complimenting her, while trying to tie-in a little jab at Time for having so few Republicans considered “influential.”
Just my opinion. I saw it live, and never thought of it as a Palin jab. Never would have considered it such unless my only source was this article.
That’s OK. It’s more fun to see a purse fight anyway.
`And this Newsmax article is only following the tone and assumption of the HuffingtonPost article that preceded it.
I, for one, totally agree with you.
When asked to comment about so few Republicans on the “most influential” list, Rommey simply said he wished there were more. He then went on to say that he(Romney)would understand so few Republicans being on a “most beautiful” list because, “...we’re not very cute”.
That’s bashing Palin? Someone over at Newsmax is more hypervigilant than I when it comes to sniffing out criticism of the divine Sarah.
Did you read the transcript? It read like a complete dis to me.
