Mitt Romney Attacked By Word Pretzel Jackass

Mitt Romney was interrupted and attacked today by a liberal AP reporter who was clearly wrong in asserting the former governor was being dishonest.

BAD MOVE– Mitt should have frogmarched him off the plane.
This man has no business reporting on any Republican candidate.

The Politico has the exchange.


“I don’t have lobbyists running my campaign,” Romney said. “I don’t have lobbyists that are tied to my –”

Glen Johnson, an Associated Press reporter who was sitting on the floor as he typed on his laptop computer, interrupted to point out that Ron Kaufman, one of Romney’s top advisers, is a lobbyist.

“That’s not true, governor!” Johnson interjected, according to CBS News’ Scott Conroy, who was there. “That is not true. Ron Kaufman is a lobbyist.”

…“Ron is a wonderful friend and adviser,” Romney said. “He’s not paid — he’s an adviser, like many others. But I do not have lobbyists running my campaign.”

“Glen, I’m appreciative that you think that’s funny,” Romney said. “But Ron Kaufman is not even in on the senior strategy meetings of our campaign.”

CBS has the video of the outrageous attack.

The AP should remove this hack immediately-
He’s clearly too biased to hold his current position.
