Mitt Romney Mocks President Obama’s “Forward” Slogan
Forget dealing with the issues, Mitt Romney during a fundraiser on Wendesday night decided instead to mock President Obama’s new slogan.
Speaking to a group of rich buddies Romney said of the slogan “Forward”:
“Forward, what, over the cliff?”
At first Romney’s mind appeared to fail him once again as he tried to remember the uber-complex slogan, noting:
“His new slogan is: Progress. No, forward. Forward! That’s it! Progress would be better. I might use that one myself, actually.”
Romney made his comment at a fundraiser in which donors could gain access to Mitt Romney based on donations of $2,500 to $10,000 with high end buyers gaining more access to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.
While presumptive nominees typically open their fundraisers to the media, Mitt Romney only allowed two print reporters into the event and they were only allowed to hear his general reception remarks and were not approved to sit in on several smaller meetings. In the meantime television crews and their cameras were banned from the event.
The move to block out further contact from his campaign is nothing new, Romney used nearly $100,000 in Massachusetts tax-payer money to have all documents from his governorship destroyed before deciding to run for President of the United States.
Showing their support for Mitt Romney at the event were Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen McDonnell among other prominent lawmakers in the state.
Do you think mocking your opponents slogan while locking out media from your events is a good way to kickoff a Presidential campaign?
