"Hits" apparently has a different meaning than it did when I was growing up.

I believe the flight attendants and nearby passengers verified Romney's statement. It was the crew, not Romney who reported the incident.

A “rapper” huh? I guess that explains why he doesn’t understand why his seat should be upright during takeoff. You can’t tell those morons anything.

I’m hoping his jail time will allow his cellmate to make the song, “I’m in Sky Blu.”

He got his face in the paper and received free advertising, everyone will now know his name for a while and he will cash in on it.

He’ll be a hero back in the hood for assaulting “The Man” and his wife while sitting on a plane.

Goes to show that’s what happens when you take a foreign airline. Romney should have known to travel via a US-flagged carrier!

That’s because if you can’t explain it in four letter words, they can’t understand it.

Stupid people fly on all carriers, US or foreign.

And I like Air Canada. Flew with them once. They had the best snacks. :)

What on earth was Mitt doing in economy class, or on public transportation, for that matter? I’m sure he has a private plane available to him.

Next time he ought to forget about being “down with the folks” and just use his own plane. It’s not worth it getting into fights with people like this low-life rapper.

The jerks not in jail. The police detained him for a couple of minutes. Then the airline gave him a ticket on the next flight.

It is sad to see on FR a person taking shots who did nothing wrong. What is with you people. While I might not vote for Romney (not Conservative enough for me), I would never think of piling on him when he did nothing wrong.

I guess the low class behavior of the left is rubbing off.

Although I do not like him, I have to admit I appreciate that he is flying coach.
If he flies 1st class or private, he is an elitist, but he also gets slams for going coach. No win situation.

Ok more conservative than the nut case that brought on the incident. But that would not take too much to be any conservative that that nut case!!!
