I suppose this is newsworthy in that it's one of the few times where Romney hasn't failed when appearing in public.


Other than telling her to go home to a home that is gone, I agree Romney finally has a campaign success.

I'm always reminded of what Hitchens said when I see that pic:

"What about Princess Diana?" Kroft asked. "I'm trying to remember what you said about Princess Diana. ...You compared her to a landmine."

"Well, there's a horrible joke about a landmine, yes," Hitchens acknowledged. "She was in Angola on her landmine campaign, and there was a hushed, reverent BBC commentator. And he said, 'The thing about mine fields is that they're very easy to lay, but they're very difficult and dangerous, and even expensive to get rid of' - the perfect description of Prince Charles's first wife."

the_geek: On one hand he gave practical advice. On the other hand he showed no empathy.


"A helicopter was flying around above Seattle when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic navigation and communications qquipment. Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter's position and course to fly to the airport. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a handwritten sign, and held it in the helicopter's window. The pilot's sign said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters. People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign and held it in a building window. Their sign read: "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER." The pilot smiled, waved, looked at her map, determined the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely. After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their position. The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the Microsoft building because, like their technical support, online help and product documentation, the response they gave me was technically correct, but completely useless."

I remember one time when money was tight, and my mom had to put some groceries back because she didn't have enough money. I innocently suggested just going to the bank and getting more. I was three years old. Romney might seem out of touch, but he really connects with the average three year old.

Then have Martin help them find what the guy needs - and make a point of providing an update, where you say what the proper agency to contact is, so other people in a similar situation know what to do.
