Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lost his cool yesterday.
The Republican popped into a South Carolina Target to speak with reporters when AP correspondent Glen Johnson challenged Romney’s lie: “Lobbyists don’t run my campaign”. Johnson pointed out that lobbyist Ron Kaufman not only helps strategize policy and debate, but sits in on key campaign meetings. That, he said, proves that a lobbyist is in the upper echelons of the campaign. Romney wouldn’t budge, however, and gets frightfully angry. “Listen to my words,” he says, as if simply uttering something makes it true.
What a schmuck.
