You knew it had to happen, right? Twenty days out from the election, Romney pulling ahead, and Team O uses the old I-Know-You-Are-But-What-Am-I mime in an attempt to show that, not only is Mitt greedy and corrupt and evil because he’s rich, but it runs in his family.
ABC News via Yahoo!:
Mitt Romney’s rise in business and politics has served as a marketing bonanza for two of his wife’s closest relatives, both Utah-based businessmen who have benefited from, and are said to have traded on, their connection to the presidential candidate even as they suffered a succession of embarrassing business and legal difficulties.
Ann Romney’s brother Roderick Davies, who filed for bankruptcy in 2010, and nephew Ryan Davies, who oversaw a now-bankrupt green energy venture, have both been out on the campaign trail to offer support for Romney. But back in Utah, the two men have left a trail of unhappy business partners, a number of whom spoke with ABC News to express concern about how the two might try and capitalize on a Romney presidency.
Blah blah blah. The story goes on to quote this loser investor in Roderick Davies’s green energy company, saying that Mitt should have done something to make sure he didn’t have any crooks in his family. He stopped short of suggesting water boarding.
So when Mitt Romney points to Obama’s failures in green energy adventurism like the $300 billion he poured into the Chevy Volt battery factory that never shipped a battery, or Solyndra, or First Solar or A123 Barack can say, Hey, look at your crooked brother-in-law! So there, Mr. Smarty Pants!
Now Matt Drudge has gotten wind that serial smoke bomber Gloria Allred is about to lob one against Romney.
Remember the Herman Cain affairs that weren’t? Where one of Cain’s supposed ex-lovers–just coincidentally, strictly by happenstance, no connection whatsoever–lived in Obama henchman David Axelrod’s apartment building? Yep, Gloria Allred.
Anyway, the point is, Mitt Romney has a connection to a green energy FUBAR, just like Obama. So there. Or something.
