Romney sidelined by Delahunt-Chavez oil deal

Mitt Romney is supposed to be the Governor of Massachusetts, isn't he?  Sometimes it's hard to be sure.  When asked what he thought about the fact that Congressman Bill Delahunt (D-Quincy) had managed to score 12 million gallons of low-cost heating oil for Massachusetts residents, Romney had this to say:

I'm delighted to hear we'll be able to purchase oil at a lower price than the market for our citizens.

What a quote.  "I'm delighted to hear" - like he read about it in the paper.  Come to think of it, he probably did.  I also love the fact that he sounds so surprised by the deal - as though he had assumed that, gosh, the market's the market, and there's nothing anyone can do about it other than sign bills that the Democratic legislature passes. 

If Romney cared, he could probably make something happen, as this deal proves.  But he just doesn't seem to care.  While other elected officials are busting their butts to help low-income residents of Massachusetts heat their homes, Romney is out ... well ... what's he doing again?  Oh yeah.

Very good point. It just shows how distant the Mittster is from what's happening on the ground and in the neighborhoods and communities of Massachusetts. No way he's running for re-election!

"Delighted." What a silly response.

Willard reads? Doesn't that cut into his hectic hair grooming schedule?

Way to look completely ineffective, Mittster. (as if he needed help...)
