Just like "Barry" wants it..No need for common folk when giving a speech about the economy charging $35,800 per couple and a mere $10,000 extra for the couple to get a picture taken with the president.

Hasn't he got the brains to take one look at this set-up, and put the kibosh on it? And, we're supposed to hand this guy the keys???

This will go down in history as an all-time goof in election campaign optics, rivaling Dukakis bobbing along in that oversized helmet, driving that tank.


Oh yes, it will make international news I am sure...lol. This is not a world changing event. Get a grip.

Comparing an Obama fund raiser to a Romney campaign speech about the economy is pretty weak. You should be able to do better than that...

P.S. I bet Obama filled the room.

So why are you working so hard spinning it? Willard and his team layed another egg. Deal with it. There are plenty more to come.

I'm not running for President. You should expect more out of your leaders.

He has a good point, Romney needs to realize all of the over-analyzing-no-lifes out there on the internet ready to spin anything to smash him. So he should have just instantly left and upset the Detroit Economic Club so as to show his true leadership skills for internet message board aficionados.

Which is why he thought he could get away with bragging about how many CadillacS his wife drives. I'm sure he figured he was addressing people "like him," who can relate to having not just ONE luxury car, but many.

I see they managed to gather together just about every person in Detroit that isn't getting a government check of some sort.
