Romney can’t remember whether or not he assaulted someone with scissors? I clearly recall that I’ve never assaulted anyone with scissors.
Is Romney so dimwitted that he lacks the capacity to remember whether or not he assaulted someone with scissors?
Or, has Romney committed so many assaults that he can’t remember the details of many of them?
Or, is Romney just a liar?
Romney gives us wonderful choices, doesn’t he?
Welcome to FR. How much does Media Matters pay per post these days? I hear the running rate is $.56 a post...
To be fair, politicians (especially those who are running against a media darling) are asked "out in left field" questions all the time. The safest thing to say is "I don't recall" until you can regroup mentally and figure out what the question is actually about.
If Romney firmly denied this, then it turns out something did happen that was a little bit, sorta like the story (but not really), and he hadn't remembered it, then he'll look like a fool, a liar, or both.
