(Rush just talked about this. I changed the title to reflect the content of interest.)
NBCs Brian Williams sat down with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, conducting a wide-ranging interview that touched upon gun control, his tax returns, and Romneys Mormon faith.
Romney explained that his previous legislation regarding limits on assault weapons had been a compromise, reiterating that, as he sees it, more laws wont solve the issue of gun violence. He also echoed his previous statements regarding American voters general disinterest when it comes to his tax returns, prompting Williams to say that people are curious about things expensive horses he may have purchased.
When Williams brought up the argument that Romney cannot discuss his past and family history because of its roots in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and is, as such, a hidden man, Romney began speaking about his dads experience and struggles, adding that hes very proud of his heritage and of his religion.
I know how much you love quoting unnamed Romney advisers, Williams joked, quoting a source close to the campaign who said Romney is looking for a boring white guy as his VP running mate. Romney laughed in response, (You werent available, he told Williams in a genuinely funny moment) adding that a decision has yet to be made.

COW=Obuma is that you? How’s your garden growing?
That was one of the great lines ever. Cheney was a cut throat, he was awesome. As good as the line (technically false as it might have been) that he used against John Edwards, to the effect of "Senator, before you had walked up on this stage, I have never met you". BAM!
Glad it registered. When he bows to Fearless Leader, the brain matter is no longer level, and thus is impaired.
Someone is writing his words for him.
I agree 100%! Although I was rooting for Gingrich, I have gone from being a grudging to a resigned to an enthusiastic supporter of Romney. (Full disclosure: I've never been as negative about Mitt Romney as some conservatives have been because I've suspected he was a conservative who had a nice-guy habit to compromise too much, but that he would break that habit when he realized that you just can't give in to Left on anything because they just push for more. I believe Romney knows that now and that he will be a conservative president. In any case, he'd be a dramatic improvement over Obama.)
Headline is misleading. Romney was only joking.
Rush had just mentioned this on the air. I was just trying to convey the gist in the title. You can’t have 500 words in the title. You have to jam it in.
That is hysterical. I loved it.
Congratulations Rob Portman! Come on down!
Romney is no McCain, I’ll give him that.
This is going to be the first time in his political career that Obama is going to have a real opponent.
I like you and Tulane. Mitt’s the man, no holds barred.
Go get ‘em Mitt!
That and the remark about getting the Churchill bust back..
it’s a start.
Didn’t mean to be critical. I thought it was a MSM headline. They always try to skew one’s thinking in their direction before you read their articles.
