Right is right and wrong is wrong. B4B is often critical of those running against Senator Brownback. And we always back up our assertions with undeniable evidence. We may favor our candidate, but our reporting is always objective.
So we agree, and are glad to say so, with Mittens when he said “lighten up” about his posing for a picture with a supporter. The sign, in which the supporter exercises her G-d given First Amendment right, has riled supporters of Osama Obama and Chelsea’s mama. (Speaking of lightening up, that picture’s lighting is awful. It’s called a flash, folks, and it’s not expensive. Is that Romney or Biden?)
The former Massachusetts governor took heat over the weekend from one town-hall audience member for recently posing with a supporter who donned a sign saying “No to Osama, Obama and Chelsea’s Moma.”
Although we do think it’s a little cowardly of Mittens to segue from “lighten up” to this:
“I have a lot of pictures taken with people, Romney also said. “I don’t really spend all that much time looking at the signs and the T-shirts and the buttons. I don’t have anything to say about a sign somebody else was holding.”
“You know what? Lighten up slightly,” he added. “There are a lot of jokes out there. I’m not responsible for all the signs I see.”
Lighten up slightly? Stand up for your supporters, Mitt. If you can’t stand up for them, I can’t see you standing up for us.
