VIDEO: Mitt Romney has vivid childhood memories of an event that happened before he was born

Willard may not be affable, but he sure is gaffe-able (that link has some doozies).

At a Michigan tea party event, he was nostalgic as he could be about those sweet days of yesteryear when he was but a lad of four, specifically the day of the Golden Jubilee at which there was a celebration of  the 50th anniversary of the American automobile. He remembered it fondly, because, after all, he was right there with his dad.

Why it was just as clear to him as if it were yesterday!

The Star nails it:

The Golden Jubilee described so vividly by Romney was indeed an epic moment in automotive lore. The parade included one of the last public appearances by an elderly Henry Ford.

And it took place June 1, 1946 — fully nine months before Romney was born.

Mitt really needs to stop talking, especially when there's no teleprompter in sight.

  • Laffy, Gilda's comment was exactly the right response gotta stop being so hard on Mittens, he really can't help being a caricature of an out of touch with reality rich guy, that is now and always has been his life.....running for political office is the closest he has ever been to the life that most humans on the planet experience.

  • I don't think that's a big enough flag behind Mitt.
