Mitt Romney had another food identification difficulty today as he told a crowd in Frankenmuth, Mich., that they have a lot of chickens in Frankenmuth. "Oh yeah, chicken and, you know, noodles. It’s good German food right here. What a wonderful place."
The presumptive GOP nominee also enthused over how much "fun" it was to run for president and how the whole thing was so historic and all.
“This is so much fun. It’s so much fun running for president. This is kind of historic, you know that? To all be together on a morning like this and to be in the bright sunshine and in a beautiful place and to be running for president with your help.”
This display is just the latest demonstration of the difficulties Romney runs into when he goes off script. Other recent examples include difficulty identifying a donut, telling fundraisers he didn't like their cookies because they looked "store bought" when they were, in fact, donated by a local bakery, and his recent reference to the "Wawa" convenience store chain as "Wawas."
“I was at Wawas,” Romney explained. “I went in to order a sandwich. You press a little touchtone keypad, alright? You just touch that and, you know, the sandwich comes up. You touch this, touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier. There’s your sandwich. It’s amazing!”
It was yet another display of Romney's exuberant delight over things that common folk may find to be common place, such as the "correct height" of trees in Michigan, how the sandwich ordering system works at the "Wawas", and the wonderful chicken and "you know, noodles," they have in Frankenmuth.
“This is not about me," he bubbled. "You’re not here because I’m some spectacular speaker, you all know that. You’re not here because the Republican Party is the answer to all things, you know better than that. You know, instead, that this is America. And America is the answer to all good things.”
In addition to the height of the trees, the perfectness of the streets, the amount of chicken and "you know, noodles" in Frankenmuth and the way that circular pastry device with the opening in the center appeared extra tasty, Romney has also gushed in the past about Detroit-made automobiles.
“I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually. And I used to have a Dodge truck. So, I used to have all three covered.”
An odd statement from a man who said Detroit should drop dead instead of receiving a government bailout for the auto industry.
