Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential nominee, playfully turned the tables on NBC News Anchor Brian Williams, when Williams accused him via an unnamed source of only considering an incredibly boring white guy as his running mate: “You told me you weren’t available [Brian].”
Williams admitted defeat in the exchange, and said “touche” in response.
Maybe Mitt Romney has a sense of humor after all.
The “boring white guys” most often mentioned in relation to the possible vice presidential selection are Ohio Sen. Rob Portman or former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
That being said, isn’t it interesting that media liberals like Brian Williams always seem to question the racial motivations of others but themselves seem wholly obsessed with the subject of race?
Further on the subject of media coverage of the 2012 presidential election, the October debate schedule between the former Massachusetts governor and the president has been announced.
The candidates will meet on three occasions in prime time. The first debate covering domestic policy will be on October 3 in Denver at the University of Denver. The second event, in a town-hall format, will take place on October 16 on the campus of Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The third–devoted to foreign policy–will be on October 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.
There will be one vice presidential debate, too, between Joe Biden and the as-yet unknown GOP VP candidate (who may or may not be an incredibly boring white guy) on October 11 in Kentucky.
If past presidential debates are any indication, Romney can expect all the hard, accusatory questions to come his way, while all the softball questions will be tossed at President Obama.
Romney, the former businessman and Olympic chief as well as governor, is currently on a brief overseas trip to London and the state of Israel.
Here is the video of the exchange between Mitt Romney and Brian Williams about the vice presidential search.
Who do you think Mitt Romney will select as his vice presidential running mate? Who do you think would be the strongest candidate for him to pick?
