Oh the candidates they hath brought out the big lines now, right Mr. President?

“I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. Michelle wasn’t…”

So remember no silver spoon’s available in that madrassa.

But silver-spoon emanated Mitt Romney was ready with his most pithy reply:

Damn straight, during a recession a leader should be focused on pursuits with a more common touch:

“She [Ann Romney] has Austrian Warmbloods, which are – yeah, it’s a dressage horse, it’s a kind of horse for the sport that she’s in. Me, I have a Missouri Fox Trotter. So mine is like a quarter horse, but just a much better gait. It moves very fast, and doesn’t tire, and it’s easy to ride, meaning it’s not boom-boom-boom, it’s just smooth, very smooth.”

But Mitt is making sacrifices:

The World Cup finals for the elite sport of dancing horses, known as dressage, opened today in the Netherlands without the presence of two of its most prominent wealthy devotees, Mitt and Ann Romney. The Romneys’ horse, Rafalca, will compete, however, performing to music personally selected by the Republican presidential candidate.

That’s not losing focus on the important things in these difficult times.

Keep up the high-brow fellas.
