The Associated Press must be a sour place to work. This article cites Gov. Romney’s quote as being controversial and a slam on Sarah Palin:
On CNN on Sunday, Romney was asked about Time magazine including only two high-profile Republicans – Palin and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh – on its list of “The World’s Most Influential People.”
“I think there are a lot more influential Republicans than that would suggest,” Romney said.
“But was that the issue on the most beautiful people, or the most influential people?” he continued. “I’m not sure. If it’s the most beautiful, I understand. We’re not real cute.”
Am I missing something here? I think any fair minded person would understand that Gov. Romney was suggesting that Palin and Limbaugh are a subset of the “influential members of the GOP,” and added a little self-deprecation for fun. Give me a break!
