Phony Romney Photo Op With Staffer's Mom
Just like everything about the Mitt campaign, there's a bit of a fraud
being played on the public.
What wasn’t reported – and what the Romney campaign did not reveal at the time – was that one of Sachs’ sons, Steve Sachs, is a paid employee of Romney’s campaign, organizing five counties in Michigan.
Kevin Madden, Romney’s campaign spokesman, said Sachs “work in the field doesn’t change (his mother’s) situation.”
Although Romney supposedly allowed the woman to answer questions, he gave her a little lesson on politicking, Mitt-style:
Ironically, when it came time to take questions from the reporters gathered around Sachs' kitchen table, Romney joked: "If you don’t want to answer any questions, that’s fine, too. What I’ve learned is, if they ask a question, you can answer something else."
Yeah, we've noticed, Mitt.
Meanwhile the Romney campaign is claiming
that they are going back on the air in South Carolina and Florida.
The moves represent increased confidence in the outcome of today's vote in Michigan -- where Romney is leading or neck and neck with McCain in most polls -- and also eflect the urgency of the calendar.
Or they represent an effort to appear confident. InTrade still shows McCain with a slight margin (55% to 44%) in the Wolverine State. A lot will depend on how many Democrats vote for the Mitt in the GOP primary as urged by Kos and other liberal bloggers.
