VIEIRA: So, let me ask you, would you characterize John McCain’s campaign as dignified and honest?
ROMNEY: Well, what I’d characterize the entire campaign as is extraordinarily negative on the part of Barack Obama. […]
VIEIRA: So you think his campaign was dignified?
ROMNEY: Well, I think it’s going to come down to this, and I think that is, who is going to be able to keep America safe and who is it that’s going to add jobs. […]
VIEIRA: Governor, not to beat a dead horse here, but once again, do you believe that the campaign was dignified?
ROMNEY: Was it dignified? It was presidential.
Let me be the first to say “Who cares what Romney thinks?”
A couple quick points:
1.) Democrats and liberal bloggers need to stop paying attention to trivial stuff like this. Who cares what Mitt Romney thinks? Besides, every time you quote these morons, it just gives them an opportunity to play the victim and whine about media bias abd “gotcha” questions. The walkback, if it is deemed necessary, has probably already begun.
2.) Mitt Romney lost to McCain, and this can easily be dismissed as sour grapes.
3.) Mitt Romney wouldn’t know a dignified campaign, anyway. This is Multiple Choice Mitt, who changed his message every day, and, if you remember correctly, was the wingnut choice before Sarah Palin. In fact, he was Sarah Palin before Sarah Palin. Remember this, from CPAC:
ROMNEY: You are with me all the way to the convention. Fight on, just like Ronald Reagan did in 1976.
But there is an important difference from 1976. Today we are a nation at war. And Barack and Hillary have made their intentions clear regarding Iraq and the war on terror: They would retreat, declare defeat.
Screw Mitt Romney. He wouldn’t know grace, honor, or dignity if it bit him on the ass.
