QOTD: Mitt Romney zings NBC’s Brian Williams on veepstakes question

Haha! Now THIS Mitt Romney I can get behind! Via Bloomberg:

Take a look at Mitt Romney’s serve return:

Brian Williams, the sonorous news anchor for NBC News, was reading from a script when he asked Romney, the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, if it’s true he’s seeking an “incredibly boring white guy” for a running mate.

“You told me you were not available,” Romney replied, laughing.

“Touche,” Williams said, losing the trail on that line of questioning.

Here’s video of the exchange:

Love it. Then again, I do remember seeing some clips from Romney pressers during his time as Governor of MA. and enjoying how he handled the press. That is something we definitely need in the next Republican President. Score one for Team Mitt. =d>

    As the old saying has it, “Ask a stupid question and you will get a stupid answer.” Williams deserved a shot like that.

  2. Foxx says:

    Thats how you castrate members of the press. Well played.

  3. Carlos says:

    Williams won’t be asked by the jackasses, either – he’s too valuable as one of the media lapdogs…

  4. It’s good to see that Romney is quick on his feet rhetorically. It’s a trait that no politician should be without — and it could prove vital in the October face-offs with The Won.

  5. Coastal Eddie says:

    Brain Dead Brian should know better than to enter the battle of wits with an adult. Read from a teleprompter yes, think without a script, a bad idea.

    Who said Gov. Romney doesn’t have a sense of humor?
