Mitt Romney Can Sure Teach Liberals How To Be A Class Act
Last week, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry launched a vicious attack against Mitt Romney’s biracial family to score political points. : Romney has a black grandson, which the folks at MSNBC thought would be funny if he were turned into a political punching bag. : Perry apologized on Twitter. And did so again on her show earlier this morning. : Yet, despite the vitriol, the Romneys hold no “ill will” against Perry, or anyone at MSNBC.
Romney admitted on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to making mistakes of his own. He understands that this can happen in politics, but an apology was issued. : It’s time to move on.
ROMNEY: Well first let me just note, Chris, that we love this little guy a great deal. He was an answer to prayer and we love that he is a part of our family. He is part of our family. That being said, I recognize that people make mistakes and the folks at MSNBC made a big mistake, and they’ve apologized for it. and that’s all can you ask for. I am going to mover [sic] on from that. I am sure they want to move on from it. Look, I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself. And they’ve apologized for this. And you know, I think we can go on from there.
WALLACE: Let me just ask if I can press a little bit on this, sir, you tend to speak from the head. I know Mrs. Romney tends to speak from the heart. I suspect she took this somewhat more personally. The idea that political discourse would include going after a little baby.
ROMNEY: Well, you know, I think people recognize and the folks at MSNBC who have apologized recognize, that people leak me are fair targets. If you get in the political game, you can expect incoming. But children, you know, that’s beyond the line and I think they understand that and feel that as well. I think it’s a heart felt apology. I think for that reason, we hold no ill will whatsoever.
