Who's out of touch?
In her ABC interview of Mitt Romney, Diane Sawyer asked Mitt Romney if he was "too rich to relate?" You can see the video here. I do not offhand remember her asking this question of John Kerry when he was running for president.
Forbes informs us that Ms. Sawyer "made $12 million in 2005." It is realistic to assume that she is probably making more today. So, Diane, tell us what it's like to buy bulk items at the Costco store. Does having a lot of money make you too rich to relate?
Ms. Sawyer also asked about some incident when the Romneys let their dog ride on the roof of their car decades ago, as this was some kind of cruelty. To my shock and surprise, Ms. Sawyer has not memorized Dreams from my Father because Obama's autobiography has this quote, now researched by The Daily Caller:
"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share."
The Daily Caller followed that quote with this delicious remark:
Hey, whatever you have to tell yourself, libs. Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth. And whenever you bring up the one, we're going to bring up the other.
We await Ms. Sawyer interviewing the president on the taste of dog.
