Is Mitt Romney Intentionally trying To Throw This Race?

Mitt Romney at Daytona 500 NASCAR race Sunday:
"...I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."
Somebody sell Mittens a vowel.

Via CBS News:
Mitt Romney went to the Daytona 500 NASCAR race Sunday for what should have been a chance to show he's one of the guys. Instead, in casual conversation with an Associated Press reporter at the Florida track, he reminded people once again that he is not exactly a regular Joe.

Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."

Democrats and liberals quickly ridiculed the remark on Twitter. "I don't know people who fish but I know people who own yachts," tweeted Brad Woodhouse, communications director of the Democratic National Committee. Ari Melber, a writer for the liberal Nation magazine who apparently was watching the Oscars, tweeted: "Do I like movies? Well I have some friends who own movie companies."

he's been a successful business owner. Why hate on him for that? Now...that being said...he's FAR from my ideal candidate. As it stands now..I haven't really got much use for any of the 3 of them.

This seems particularly prophetic now.
