Mitt Romney has gotten in some hot water because his "Director of Operations" seemed to be role-playing a secret service. Mitt Romney also said that "the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman," and so he ducked out of the YouTube debate.
You see, Mitt Romney thinks he’s better than everybody and doesn’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else. Remember, his kids are serving their country by trying to elect him?
The most recent chapter is that he travels with full police escort, according to the AP:
The motorcade of Republican presidential candidateexceeded speed limits and went through stop lights Friday as local law officers escorted him, blue lights flashing, to campaign events in two South Carolina counties.
Sheriff Jason Booth, a Romney supporter, led the candidate’s motor home and staff cars with his blue lights running from theline through Saluda County to the Newberry city limits, according to an Associated Press reporter following the candidate.
The caravan traveled between 10 mph and 15 mph over. The posted speed limits were 45 mph and 55 mph.
The President travels by protected motorcade to protect him. Mitt Romney doesn’t need to be protected. And he doesn’t get to break the law because he is running late.
