Okay Mitt, we get it now. No need to keep pushing it in our faces. Yes, you are rich, very rich. So rich you are Mr. Romney, that your friends are owners of NASCAR race teams and you making $10,000 bets is nothing especially when you collect hundreds of thousands of dollars at speaking engagements.
Yes, we get it, but apparently you still have more you want us to know.
Appearing on Alabama sports commentator Paul Finebaum’s radio show this afternoon, Romney was asked about which team he thinks quarterback Peyton Manning will sign with. Romney said he wasn’t sure, but noted that he has some very good friends who own NFL teams:
FINEBAUM: You are a Patriots fan, I know that you’ve had a lot of support from that family. Having said that, the most coveted free agent in NFL history is Peyton Manning. I know you want him somewhere away from New England, where do you think he ought to go?
ROMNEY: Well, you know I’m surprised to hear that Denver’s thinking about him, they’re — I don’t want him in our neck of the woods, lets put it that way, I don’t want him to go to Miami or to the Jets. But I’ve got a lot of good friends, the owner Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets —both owners are friends of mine. But let’s keep him away from New England, so that Tom Brady has a better shot of picking up a championship for us.
We wait on pins and needles for your next revelation and the economic boost this information will surely have on our economy.
