Mitt Romney is just like us. I remember the last time I was caught on camera discussing my horses, so I can definitely understand Mitt Romney’s almost secret conversation with Sean Hannity of Fox News when Hannity - unaware that his conversation with Romney was being recorded - asked the following question:
“What kind of horses do you have?” asks Hannity.
“She has Austrian warmbloods,” says Romney, “It’s a dressage horse … for the sport she’s in.” “Me? I have a Missouri Fox Trotter. So mine’s like a quarter horse, but just a much better gait — it moves very fast.”
The New York Times reported in December that Romney acquired “six-figure warmblood horses for his wife.” The story was corrected to say that the horses were warmbloods, not thoroughbreds.
We totally understand Romney. We’re all elitists like that!
