Romney bot fails to name ‘doughnut’


Republican candidate Mitt Romney held a roundtable discussion last Friday morning at an Iowa restaurant, and left the small cafe in shambles according to the owner. Dianne Bauer, proprietor of the Main Street Cafe, described her experience with the Romney campaign in an interview with a local FOX affiliate

Bauer never had the chance to meet the candidate who she closed her restaurant down for. After reporters overheard her complaints and included it in their articles, Mitt Romney called Bauer to explain “it was just a misunderstanding that she did not get to meet him.” She says the whole experience left her wondering, “With how he treated me, is that how he’s going to treat others? You know, if he gets in office is he going to be that way to us little people?”

Bauer would have had her question answered if she saw what happened at the end of that roundtable discussion. After thanking the other participants, Mitt Romney failed to identify a dessert that has a hole in the center. 

In the video clip, Romney says to the man to his left: “Would you see that one of those chocolate uhh ahm… chocolate goodies finds it way on our ride?” Yep…Mitt Romney didn’t know what a chocolate DOUGHNUT looked like. 

Mitt Romney’s constant failure with food politics started back in April when he was deemed the Cookie Monster. At a campaign event in Pennsylvania, Romney refused the cookies that were placed out for him. “I’m not sure about these cookies. They don’t look like you made them. Did you make those cookies? You didn’t, did you? No. No. They came from the local 7-Eleven bakery or wherever.” 

We’ll have the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart on to discuss Romney’s food issues.
