With Sandy having arrived on our shores and the polls are not really telling us how the election is going to turn out the campaign is ending on a serious note. But has it ever been fun for Romney? Over the course of the campaign we've learned that Romney has taken to turning down many lighthearted staples of the trail. Let's take a look at all the fun things that Romney will never do.
Today Us Weekly released online a tease for their issue on newsstands Friday: "Exclusive: President Barack Obama: 5 Things You Don't Know About Me." Okay, so, as Daily Intel's Dan Amira tweetd, we already know most of these things. (He was bear-hugged by a pizza shop owner! He like Homeland!). But we wondered if Romney had anything to say about himself. No luck. Us reports: "Us offered the same opportunity to Obama's opponent, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney; Romney declined." To be fair to Romney though, per Mike Allen's Playbook, he did participate in a People feature. So he went for what is arguably the classier tabloid, and revealed that his comfort food is “Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, carrots.” Carrots?
President Obama took heat from conservatives for giving an interview to Glamour, but Glamour explains that Romney declined requests over a six-month period for a sit-down, despite the fact that "the Republican and Democratic candidates for president in 2004 and 2008 all participated in Glamour’s election coverage." So, instead of having Romney tell his side, Glamour explained they turned to women voting for Romney to explain their support. Seems a little passive aggressive to us.
