By Todd Starnes Former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett said Mitt Romney once compared the Tea Party to a ferret
Bennett was a three-term senator from Utah who was ousted at the states GOP convention by conservatives.

He said Romney related what he believed to be an apocryphal story about getting bitten by a ferret he had tried to rescue from a dishwasher.
Mitt said the Tea party people are like that ferret in the dishwasher, he said in the Time Magazine report. Theyre so frightened and angry, theyll even bite Bob Bennett, whos trying to get the country out of this mess.
The story was adapted from The New New Deal, a book written by Michael Grunwald.
Bennetts office did not respond to calls seeking comment.
Romney campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul did not confirm or deny Romney made the comments.

November 2012 The Lesser of Two Evils
Bob Bennett is an open-borders, RINO doofus, with MASSIVE sour grapes. He has about as much credibility right now as Debbie Downer.
I’m actually more indifferent toward Romney at this point.
Hey now, the objective of conservatives is to spend every waking hour defeating Todd Akin, didn’t you get the memo?
It doesn’t matter whatever ridiculuous things Romney said in the past, or how ever many TARP bills and bailouts Paul Ryan voted for. Todd Akin is now the biggest threat to the nation.
What exactly is your point in posting this?
Well, Mitt, if you get elected, those angry ferrets that take over the House and Senate are going to keep your sorry, moderate ass in line.
Actually, the guy in the picture somewhat resembles Willard, doesn't he?
Governor, when life hands you a frightened, angry ferret...stuff it down Barry’s pants.
I like Ferrets.
Ferret bites RINO.
I like Ferrets.
Mitt does’nt know a ferret from a democrat...one thing he’s on is that he pulled Paul Ryan...he’s kinda like a John McCain...thing is the country has already saw the hope and change BS...Paul Ryan will take the hair over the top!
But I am off topic... this is not an anti democrat thread.

Good on you pointing out who Bob Bennett is and why Mittens would say something like that.
Mitt Romney endorsed Bob Bennett:
You know his principles, Mr. Romney said to the roughly 3,500 delegates. We need Bob Bennetts skill and loyalty and intellect and power.
You ought change your name to “RaisingObama”. Would fit.
