Romney doesn’t mention ‘tea party’ during speech at tea party event
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke at a Tea Party Express event in Concord, New Hampshire Sunday but two words were missing from his speech: “tea” and “party.”
“I haven’t spent my whole life in politics. As a matter of fact, of the people running for office, I don’t know that there are many who have less years in politics than me,” Romney told the audience. “I spent four years as a governor; I joke that I didn’t inhale. I’m still a citizen, I’m still a business person.”
Not everyone was there to cheer on the former Massachusetts governor.
“Sitting right in front of the stage was ‘Flip Romney’ a man dressed in a dolphin costume who waved yellow flip-flops as Romney addressed the crowd of about 150 people,” according to The Washington Post.
